Hide your trashcans people, because STOMP is back in town!
If it isn't nailed down, it's fair game for this entourage as "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", according to the official local performance website.
Billed as a "high octane, dance infused, percussive pandemonium", STOMP makes a stop at Raleigh's Progress Energy Center, presented by Broadway Series South, for a special limited engagement NEXT weekend. There are four performances scheduled over the two day appearance: Nov. 18 at 7:30 p.m., Nov. 19 at 5 p.m., Nov. 19 at 9 p.m., and a final performance on Nov. 20 at 3 p.m.
