The Princeton Triangle Club, the nation's oldest college musical-comedy troupe, will present its fall show, "Heist Almighty," at 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday, Nov. 10-11, at McCarter Theatre.
Singing paintings, dancing ninjas, a team of Girl Scouts and Triangle's signature kickline will be among the cast of characters in the troupe's 116th annual production.
In "Heist Almighty," an evil museum curator steals the Mona Lisa and frames a hapless thief, who persuades his grifter brother to come out of retirement to clear his name. The brothers try to outwit the curator and a detective on their trail.
Following the performances at McCarter, Triangle will take "Heist Almighty" on tour to New York, Boston, Washington, D.C., and Richmond, Va., in December.
Tickets are free with Passport to the Arts passes, $7.50 for students and $20 to $25 for general admission. They are available on the McCarter website or at the theater's box office, (609) 258-ARTS, as well as at the Frist Campus Center ticket office.
In addition to
its fall show, Triangle also performs an annual "Freshman Week" show in
September, featuring some of its classic material, and an annual spring
performance titled "Rude Olympics," showcasing its newest writing
talent at the Frist Campus Center theater. Although theatre
professionals direct the fall show, Triangle shows are completely
conceived, written, produced and performed by Princeton undergraduates.
