STOMP Returns To Wilmington's DuPont Theatre, 11/13
STOMP is making its much anticipated return to Wilmington's DuPont Theatre for one weekend only Friday, November 13 through Sunday, November 15, 2009.
The return of the percussive hit brings new surprises, with whole sections of the show updated and restructured and the addition of two new full-scale routines, utilizing props like tractor tire inner tubes and paint cans.
The changes that can be seen in the tour of STOMP are the biggest since the late 1990's. STOMP has been an overwhelming success marked by rave reviews, numerous awards and sell-out engagements. The young performers "make a rhythm out of anything we can get our hands on that makes a sound," says co-creator/director Luke Cresswell. Stiff-bristle brooms become a sweeping orchestra; Zippo lighters flip open and closed to create a fiery fugue; wooden poles thump and clack in a rhythmic explosion. STOMP uses everything but conventional percussion instruments - trashcans, tea chests, plastic bags, plungers, boots, and hubcaps - to fill the stage with compelling and infectious rhythms.
Performances of STOMP at the DuPont Theatre are Friday through Sunday, November 13 - 15, 2009. Friday and Saturday evening performances start at 8 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday matinees at 2 p.m. Ticket prices range from $50 to $65.
