Theatre Tuscaloosa to Present AIN'T MISBEHAVIN', 2/8-17

Theatre Tuscaloosa will present Ain't Misbehavin' February 8-17 in the Bean-Brown Theatre on Shelton State's Martin Campus. Conceived by Richard Maltby, Jr. and Murray Horwitz, with musical adaptations, orchestrations and arrangements by Luther Henderson, Ain't Misbehavin' pays tribute to Harlem Renaissance musician Thomas "Fats" Waller.

Ain't Misbehavin' features a wide-variety of musical styles including blues, swing, stride, ballad and scat. The cast displays a vast array of vocal talent as they perform pieces that cover a multitude of themes and emotions ranging from light to dark, amusement to seduction and love to heartbreak.

"I am proud of this cast," Musical Director Leslie Poss said. "They have wonderful voices, immense energy and engaging stage personality. Their dedication has inspired me to bring my best as a musical director."

Theatre Tuscaloosa's Executive Producer, Tina Turley, will be directing this production of Ain't Misbehavin' with choreography by Nick Burroughs, a Musical Theatre major from The University of Alabama who came highly recommended by UA Professor and Director of Dance, Cornelius Carter. The sights and sounds of the jazz age are recreated with costume design by Jeanette Waterman, scenic design by Jameson Sanford, lighting design by John Hisey and sound design by Frank Duren.

Ain't Misbehavin' will be presented February 8-17 in the Bean-Brown Theatre on Shelton State Community College's Martin Campus, 9500 Old Greensboro Road. Performances will take place Thursdays - Saturdays at 7:30pm and Sundays and Wednesday at 2pm. All proceeds of a pay-what-you-can final dress rehearsal on Thursday, Feb. 7, at 7:30 pm, will benefit the Charlie Dennis Memorial Scholarship Fund.
