Hang onto your seats! ‘Underwear: The Musical’ set Nov. 15-19

MTSU’s Department of Theatre and Dance is ready to escort audiences into outer space with “Underwear: The Musical,” set Nov. 15-19 in the University’s renowned Tucker Theatre.

The curtains will rise at 7:30 each evening in this eccentric production, written by MTSU alumni Brandon James Gwinn and Heidi Ervin and directed by Deborah Anderson, MTSU professor of performance studies.

The quirky musical reflects the far-out lives of underwear models from outer space, and cast and crew alike say it’s great for anyone looking for a night of quality entertainment. Just like all great theater, “Underwear: The Musical” follows the adventures of a controlling villain, a stereotyped heartthrob and a hard-working damsel. But how will love pan out in outer space? Cue the music! Drop the trousers!

“Underwear is just a wild romp of a show, and it’s certainly not your usual college musical,” says sophomore theatre major Caleb Marshall, who plays the role of “Andi,” the handsome fashion icon, in the production.

“It’s the most hilarious show I’ve been a part of, plus the songs are incredibly catchy. Behind all the crazy costumes, elaborate sets and raunchy writing, this show has a heart of gold!”

Parents, take note: There’s risqué language and some profanity, plus various stages of undress (both sexes in underwear, sequins and spandex), so “Underwear: The Musical” isn’t advised for children or young teenagers.

General-admission tickets for “Underwear: The Musical” are $10 for adults and $5 for children and may be purchased online at via the “Purchase Tickets” button on the left toolbar. MTSU students will be admitted free with a valid student ID. Tickets also will be available at the door before each performance.
