Troubadour Theater Company Presents World Premiere Holiday Event, DIE HEART

TROUBADOUR THEATER COMPANY is celebrating its 20th Anniversary season by blowing up the holidays with their latest world premiere musical comedy event, DIE HEART, musical direction by Ryan Whyman and adapted, choreographed & directed by Matt Walker. DIE HEART will preview on Thursday, December 8 at 8pm; will open on Friday, December 9 at 8pm and perform through Sunday, December 18 at 7pm at Colony Theatre, 555 N. Third St. in Burbank.

This holiday season, the Troubies leave no stone unturned and no glass un-shot - as they blow the roof off the Colony Theatre and hold the audience hostage with the classic Christmas film Die Hard combined with the music of Heart - in Troubadour Theater's production of DIE HEART!

Don't spend the holidays "Alone," run barefoot to the Colony Theatre and see the Troubies "Kick it Out," but remember, don't be late-comers or we'll go "Crazy on You!" Hans Gruber and his "Bara-crewda" will be gunning for laughs in Burbank as they take on that tempestuous "Magic Man," John McClane in this can't-miss Troubie extravaganza!

Matt Walker (Director/Choreographer/Adaptor) Since 1995, he has been artistic director of The Troubadour Theater Company in Los Angeles, directing over 40 original productions and been honored with the Orange County Weekly Theater Award for Career Achievement, the Los Angeles Drama Critics Circle Award for Sustained Excellence in Theater, and the LADCC's Joel Hirschhorn Award for Outstanding Achievement in Musical Theater.

(2011). Matt currently serves as a writer/director for Universal Studios Hollywood theme park, and has written and/or directed the entertainment shows for Harry Potter land, the Special Effects Show, and the Jurassic World Raptor Experience. In addition, Matt has worked as a Disney Imagineer on various projects both for Los Angeles and Orlando, FL.

The cast of DIE HEART will feature: Beth Kennedy, Rick Batalla, Mike Sulprizio, Cloie Wyatt Taylor, Chelle Denton, Luis Martinez, John Paul Batista, Bob Moran, Isaac Robinson-Smith, Heather Youmans, Philip McNiven, and adaptor/director Matt Walker.
