The writers, who penned the 2009 Broadway musical The Story of My Life and the regionally seen musical The Adventures of Pinocchio, have been in residence the past three weeks workshopping Something Wicked This Way Comes with undergraduate musical theatre majors at the university.
Readings of the musical take place in Weitzenhoffer Theatre. The development of Something Wicked This Way Comes is supported in part by the National Fund for New Musicals.
Bradbury's 1962 novel of the same name (the title borrows a line from Shakespeare's Macbeth) centers on two teenage boys who encounter a strange traveling carnival overseen by the menacing "Mr. Dark."
Bartram and Hill's projects also include Spin with director Eric Schaeffer and a musical adaptation of Michel Tremblay's play Les Belles-Soeurs.
