STOMP

 

August 27, 2012



Tuesday, October 16 – 7:30 pm

Thumping, bumping, banging, jumping, crashing, ripping, prancing, dancing and literally running,

STOMP have performed their mind-blowing rhythms Off-Broadway since 1994. The return of the

percussive hit to the Puget Sound region also brings some new surprises, with some sections of the

show updated and restructured with the addition of two new full-scale routines, utilizing props like

tractor tire inner tubes and paint cans.

The eight-member troupe uses everything but conventional percussion instruments - matchboxes,

wooden poles, brooms, garbage cans, Zippo lighters, hubcaps - to fill the stage with magnificent

rhythms. Audiences are swept up by the adrenaline and the energy comes full circle and the cast and

audience become one. The only way to truly understand STOMP is to see it live. The show is

entertaining on multiple levels, with humor, dance, and awe-inspiring music, suitable for all ages.

Here's what the critics are saying:
