Short North Stage’s production of Wild Party runs May 11-28 at the Garden Theater in the Short North Arts District.

COLUMBUS, Ohio – A jazzy musical of the times Roaring 20’s going to burn your way through A short northern stage as they bring their production of The Wild Party to life.

It’s a thrilling play filled with claps, giggles, jealousy and violence.

“‘Wild Party’ is a tumultuous story about prohibition that happens in one night,” said Dionysia Williams, director and choreographer of the production. “It’s a really wild party where all these very colorful characters from the vaudeville era come together.”

As the evening and drinks continue to flow, jealousy rages, a gun appears, and the party is interrupted by violence and tragedy.

“It’s got a lot of great dance numbers, it’s very upbeat, a lot of great jazz tunes,” Williams explained.But it also has many different flavors that make the choreography very interesting. It’s just a fun night at the theater.”

One great resource for this particular production was the story creator.

The musical’s book, lyrics and music were written by Broadway composer Andrew Lippa, who is the musical genius behind such hits as “Big Fish” and The Addams Family.” Lipa, who currently lives in Columbus, was able to provide insight and advice to Short North Stage to get them to see his musical.

Short North Stage has been in the Short North Arts District for 12 years and, along with CATCO, is one of two professional equity theater companies in Columbus.

“We’re very proud to be a part of the arts community here in Columbus,” said Williams, who is also the associate artistic director of Short North Stage. “We offer something that no other professional theater company in the city does: these are large-scale musicals that we bring to audiences who might not have the opportunity to go to [Broadway] tours”.
