  • Micro Shrimp, A New Musical Comedy
    04/18/15 07:00 PM - 04/18/15 07:00 PM

    Winner of the Eleventh Annual NJPC - Musical Series

    Micro Shrimp
    Music, Book & Lyrics by Marcus Yi

    Hunziker Black Box Theatre

    Admission: $25.00 General Public • $18.00 WPUNJ Community and Senior Citizens • $10.00 Students

    This musical comedy is a microcosm of the loves, beliefs and hardships of everyday life in the saltwater tank. As Marty, the new owner of the micro shrimp kit, follows the steps outlined in the instructions, we see the micro shrimp society come to life. A society that is complete with beliefs that shrimp are meant for a greater good; the other side, from which no shrimp returns; and an unknown deity - a moving light source and a net. They also have sibling rivalry; gangs of no-goodniks and lovers who vow to spend their entire lives together. The system is challenged when one shrimp returns from the “other side” to reveal their true fate: they are but fish food, and the revolt begins. This is their struggle; this is their story! A fun, silly outrageous new musical with tunes that will swim around in your head long after you leave the theatre.
