San Narciso’s The Tank Players Announce Two New Musicals for Summer
The first play takes as its basis the long-running British science fiction series “Doctor Who.” In The Tank Players’ “Jigga Who,” a time-traveling gangster who refers to himself only as “The Jigga” journeys across the universe, other dimensions and history itself to duel hostile aliens through foul-mouthed and sexually explicit rap battles. The second feature is based entirely on the Disneyland attraction “It’s a Small World.” In Driblette’s retelling, audience members see not the ideal, sanitized world of Walt Disney, but the globe divided and fractured through tumultuous geopolitics. Every song in the musical, Driblette verified, is “It’s a Small World,” performed in different musical stylings for three hours.
Details regarding show times and tickets can be found in the Community Events Calendar. A full synopsis and review of each play will be posted next week.
