ASU's Theatre department will be presenting their first play of the 2014 school year with "Musical of Musicals (The Musicals!)" on February 13.

The theatrical production is one parody story that becomes five enjoyable musicals acts within the piece which includes, selections from The King and I, The Sound of Music, Cinderella, Into the Woods, Sweeney Todd, The Phantom of the Opera, Sunday in the Park with George, Hello, Dolly and Chicago.

The musical play is under the direction of Theatre professor Mike Burnett.

The auditions for the musical production were in December and 13 cast members were chosen. Rehearsals then started in mid January.

"We have been rehearsing six days a week, at least four hours a day since January 11," Rebecca Sussdorf (Abigail Von Schtarr) said. "We put a lot of our time and hard work into this musical, and we even have rehearsals during the weekends."

Senior Jordon Shocklee is currently performing as Abby and Fräulein Abby in the musical.

"You should expect a lot of musical theatre jokes," Shocklee said. "The more musicals you have seen, the funnier it will be to you. We have all sorts of students and spectacular dances for you to enjoy as well."

The production has over 100 costumes and has roughly 40 people in charge of putting on the musical.

"There is so much going on in the production and the plot is so simple, yet so scattered and hard to follow," Sussdorf said. "However, the musical is something original and eye catching, and I think it is one mostly everyone will enjoy."

"Musical of Musicals (The Musicals!)" will be having a student preview on February 12 and all other performances are February 13 -15 at 8pm, and February 15 - 16  at 2 p.m.

Tickets will be available at the box office for $8 for general admission, $3 for students and $4 for non-ASU students.

The box office will be willing to reserve tickets for patrons by calling (325)942-2000, or you can simply purchase tickets at the window prior to the performance.
