Stage Aurora is taking “Frat House” to a new location. For those of you who have seen previous productions, you will note that this time it will be in a totally NEW venue: the Amelia Musical Playhouse at Fernandina Beach, Florida will present two shows at their iconic theater. If you’ve never seen “Frat House”, treat yourself and a friend to this foot-stomping, theatrical music comedy.
About the Show: “Frat House” is a modern-day ‘Prodigal Son’ comedic musical that tells the story of Thomas, the son of a Pastor, who leaves home to attend college and then joins a fraternity against his father’s advice. “Frat House” is the recipient of 2 Festival Favorite Awards at the Atlanta Black Theatre Festival. It’s filled with high-kick-steppin, soul-shakin-music, and a 70’s fraternity house party scene; you need to be in attendance. “Frat House” will make you laugh, cry, and shake-your-groove-thang. This award-winning production features Gospel music, Dance, Rap, and tons of laughter packed with a powerful message!
