Musical "The FIX" Oct 3-7th Live Band, Singing, Dancing, and Satire
Add one part maniacal back room scheming. Another part seedy characters with organized crime associations. Into this mix put a dysfunctional family hell-bent with political aspirations. What do you get — U.S. politics as usual?
All those elements are part of CSU, Chico’s election year production of “The Fix,” a contemporary musical making its Chico-area debut.
Presented October 3-7 in Harlen Adams Theatre by CSU, Chico’s School of the Arts, “The Fix” is described by director Joel P. Rogers as “very evocative, very interesting and very current.”
Basically, the story follows a family in the pursuit of political position. The play finds them associated with seedy characters and corporations as they try to shape and prepare a family member for a run at the Presidency. However, this dysfunctional family has problems that complicate their aspirations, including, but certainly not limited to, substance abuse, deceit, and shady organized crime associations.
“The Fix” has plenty of sexual innuendo, drug references and dirty language; it is not recommended for children.
Advance tickets, at $15 adults, $13 students, and $6 children, are available at the University Box Office (898-6333).
