The Program in Theater will present DING!, a new musical presentation directed by senior certificate student Emily Whitaker. DING! is an upbeat, joyful musical experience in which audience members, who very quickly become active participants, are led by an ensemble through a musical/theatrical “composition” that everyone in the room creates. The experience makes use of toys, games, and other childhood objects as non-traditional instruments for collaborative music-making, inviting people to play like kids once again! Absolutely no musical background is required for participation. The presentation is in the Berlind Rehearsal Room at McCarter Theatre Center on Thursday, April 2 at 7:30 and 10:00 p.m.; Friday, April 3 at 7:30 and 10:00 p.m., and Saturday, April 4 at 2:00 and 7:30 p.m. An informal talkback with Whitaker follows the Friday performance at 7:30 p.m. Free and open to the public, however seating is limited and must be reserved in advance.
