Birmingham-Southern College is kicking off their first stage production of 2018-19 in October with four performances of tick, tick…BOOM! This autobiographical musical by Larson, the Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning composer of RENT, traces a journey of turning 30 and holding onto dreams.

The story follows a composer, Jon, and the sacrifices that he made to achieve his big break in theatre. His girlfriend wants to get married and move out of the city, his best friend is making big bucks on Madison Avenue and, yet, Jon is still waiting on tables and trying to write the great American musical.

Set in 1990, this compelling story of personal discovery is presented as a rock musical filled with instantly appealing melodies and a unique blend of musical theatre styles. This youthful, endearing, and thoughtful piece, embraces the universal ideal of navigating through life’s most difficult challenges.

Twenty-one BSC students are working on the theatre project, including a cast of six. Guest Artist Jay Tumminello will serve as music director.

Performances will be held in the College Theatre/Mainstage on Oct. 4,5, and 6 at 7:30 p.m. and Oct. 7 at 2:30 p.m. Tickets cost $20 for the general public; $10 for students regardless of the school they attend. Reserve tickets starting Sept. 20 by calling the Theatre Box Office at (205) 226-4780 or going online; Box Office hours are Monday through Friday from 1-4:45 p.m. during ticket sales. The 90-minute production has no intermission. Children six and under are not allowed.
