TAP DOGS Comes to the Majestic Theater
Gettysburg College's Majestic Theater will present Australia's most successful theatrical export, Dein Perry's TAP DOGS on Tuesday, April 9th at 7:30p.m. The global dance sensation's award-winning show has been described as "Part theatre, part dance, part rock concert and part construction site!" -BBC UK.
"TAPS DOGS has played 370 cities on 6 continents to 12 million buyers, and finally, it's playing "The grandest small town theater in America," exclaimed Jeffrey Gable, Majestic's Founding Executive Director. "This is truly a once-in-a-lifetime performance."
Dein Perry's TAP DOGS features high-energy dance, theatrical performance and live music performed by a cast of six dancers and two musicians who bring the steel works to life in a fast paced, unstoppable spectacular that is the perfect show for anyone from 8-80.
The winner of over 15 international awards including an Olivier Award (UK), an Obie Award (New York) and a Pegasus Award (Spoleto Festival in Italy), Dein Perry's TAP DOGS is a 90-minute show combining the strength and power of workmen with the precision and talent of tap dancing. Whether they are in water, upside-down or jumping through scaffolding, the TAP DOGS have been performing to the beat of their own drum since their world premiere at the Sydney Theatre Festival in January 1995.
