“The Temp” Premieres at Notre Dame College

A musical best described as part “Phantom,” part “Little Shop of Horrors” and part “The Office,” is set to premiere at Notre Dame College at 8 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 11. “The Temp,” produced by and starring NDC students is a funny story of an office gone bad.

Created by Brian Kelly and Todd Price, “The Temp” is a squeaky clean, ridiculously silly piece of musical theatre. The protagonist staples, files, collates and makes women swoon in offices all over the country. Yet when love blossoms between Temp and the gorgeous account executive, Temp is tempted to change his temporary ways. Meanwhile, the employee he replaced wants vengeance.

“This is a great opportunity for our students to learn the process of working on a new, unpublished  musical,” Loewy said. “They have freedom to create and flexibility to make the characters their own. We are all having a blast in rehearsal and expect the audiences will laugh out loud.”

Four performances in the College’s Performing Arts Center are open to the public at a cost of $10 per ticket (NDC faculty, staff and students pay $5):

  • Thursday, Nov. 11, 8 p.m.
  • Friday, Nov. 12, 8 p.m.
  • Saturday, Nov. 13, 8 p.m.
  • Sunday, Nov. 14, 3 p.m.
