News   LMNOP, A "Muzical" Erupting in Chaos When the Alphabet Disappears, Begins Today; Madeline Trumble Stars
Newsies actress Madeline Trumble and Lysistrata Jones star Jared Zirilli star in LMNOP – A New Muzical, a story in which letters fall from the sky and a town's vocabulary is compromised, beginning April 7 at TUTS Underground, the developmental theatre at Theatre Under the Stars in Texas.

TUTS Underground, in association with Third Coast Creative, present the musical through April 19 in Zilkha Hall at The Hobby Center in Houston.

Joe Calarco, who helmed the 2013 production of LMNOP at Goodspeed Musicals, again directs.

Joining Trumble (Mary Poppins) as Ella Minnow Pea and Zirilli (Pretty Filthy) as Nate Warren are Natalie Venetia Belcon (Matilda) as Gwenette Minnow Pea, Erin Cearlock (national tour of Les Misérables) as Eugenia Prather, Scott Fonseka as Timmy Towgate, Scott Richard Foster (Brooklyn) as Peabody Prather/Rory, Tyce Green (Off-Broadway's Kissless) as Payton Ebert/Lug 3 (Cecil)/ Mangrove, Nick Henderson as Zach O'Dare/Lug, Jessica Janes as Poppi McGregor/Lug 2, Philip Lehl as Otto Minnow Pea, Orville Mendoza (Peter and the Starcatcher) as Shubert Greenly/Lyttle, Michele Ragusa (Young Frankenstein) as Georgeanne Towgate, Holland Vavra as Agnes Prather and Brooke Wilson as Ruth Greenly/Houston LaGreer.

LMNOP is based on the novel "Ella Minow Pea" by Mark Dunn with music by Paul Loesel and book and lyrics by Scott Burkell.

Here's how it's billed: "Chaos arises when letters begin to fall from a town monument and government officials ban them one by one. The community depends on the strength of a determined teenage girl to fight for their freedom of speech. This unique musical is part romance, part clever word game and part adult fable that reminds us of how precious our liberties are and how important it is to have the courage to stand up for what we believe." The creative team also includes choreographer Marlo Hunter, musical director Jack Beetle, lighting designer Christina Giannelli, sound designer Andrew Harper, set designer Ryan McGettigan, costume designer Colleen Grady, music supervisor Dominick Amendum and orchestrations by Lynne Shankel.

Zilkha Hall at The Hobby Center is located at 800 Bagby Street in Houston, TX. For more information and tickets, call (713) 558-TUTS or visit TUTSUnderground.com.
