MIT Musical Theater Guild's HACK, PUNT, TOOL Begins Friday
MIT's Musical Theater Guild, the oldest and largest theatre organization at MIT, has created an entirely original musical called Hack, Punt, Tool.
The play features a fictional group of MIT students who are working together to build an anonymous technological prank, better known as a "hack." The story follows the adventures of a freshman, Billy Rogers, who wants to join the hackers so he can be hardk0re. As the campus police, romantic entanglements, and old misunderstandings challenge the success of the hack, the hackers learn to trust in their friends and discover how to deal with exclusion, self-respect, and forgiveness.For nearly a year, the Hack, Punt, Tool team has worked continuously to prepare for the show. During the writing process, the script and lyrics underwent three workshopped readings and morphed under the collaborative efforts of numerous sources outside of the core writing and music teams. Now the show has been cast and the production phase has begun in earnest. Hack, Punt, Tool will be playing February 3-5 and 9-11, 2012 on MIT's campus.For more information, please visit www.web.mit.edu/mtg.
