THE HILARY DUFF PROJECT Is Back For a Limited Two-Week Run at The Newport Theatre
After a sold out run in 2017, the blast-from-the-past comedy, THE HILARY DUFF PROJECT, is back for a highly anticipated remount. Written and directed by Cat McGee, THE HILARY DUFF PROJECT will play January 31st, 2020 - February 8th, 2020 at The Newport Theatre, 956 W Newport Ave, Chicago, IL 60657. Tickets are currently available at Todaytix.com (The Hilary Duff Project) or by using the Today Tix app. The press opening is Friday, January 31st, 2020 at 7pm.
Let's go back, back to the beginning: to a time when our pop idols were Disney stars and their lives were our obsessions. THE HILARY DUFF PROJECT collages theatre, throwback concert, and spoken word poetry to chronicle the life of the early 2000s teen icon from Before Lizzie McGuire to Life After Disney. A flashy, 75-minute musical adventure full of heartfelt nostalgia and a dash of tongue-in-cheek humor, THE HILARY DUFF PROJECT will have you laughing and singing your way through the weekend.
The creative and producing team for THE HILARY DUFF PROJECT includes: Cat McGee (Playwright, Director, Producer, and Co-creator), Alex Benjamin (Co-creator), Carley Walker (Lighting design), Steve Labedz (Projections design), Kayla Menz (Intimacy director), Collin Quinn Rice (Choreographer, Graphic Design), Catherine Miller (Casting Director), Cashie Rohaly (Social Media Coordinator), Kelsey Erhart (Social Media Coordinator), Sarah Potter (Production Photographer), and Laura Nelson (Press relations).
