Fairwinds Broadway in Orlando adds STOMP as a Season Option
ORLANDO, Fla. – The Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts, in partnership with Florida Theatrical Association and Broadway Across America®, has announced the addition of the international percussion sensation STOMP as a season option for the 2015 – 2016 FAIRWINDS Broadway in Orlando Series. STOMP will play a limited run at the Dr. Phillips Center for two performances only on March 23 and 24, 2016.
FAIRWINDS Broadway in Orlando Season Subscribers will have exclusive first access to tickets for the limited engagement of STOMP starting in July 2015.
Ticket packages for the six-show season are on sale now and include Broadway smash hits RODGERS + HAMMERSTEIN’S CINDERELLA, DR. SEUSS’ HOW THE GRINCH STOLE CHRISTMAS! THE MUSICAL, THE SOUND OF MUSIC, KINKY BOOTS, DIRTY DANCING and BEAUTIFUL – THE CAROLE KING MUSICAL.
Season subrscriptions can be purchased at OrlandoBroadway.com, by calling 800.448.6322 (M – F, 10 a.m. – 5 p.m.), or in person at the Florida Theatrical Association Box Office located at 100 S. Eola Drive, Suite 101 in downtown Orlando (M – F, 10 a.m. – 5 p.m.).
A unique combination of percussion, movement and visual comedy, STOMP has created its own inimitable, contemporary form of rhythmic expression: both household and industrial objects find new life as musical instruments in the hands of an idiosyncratic band of body percussionists. It is a journey through sound, a celebration of the everyday and a comic interplay of characters wordlessly communicating through dance and drum.
Individual tickets to STOMP will be available at a later date.
