SYNOPSIS

Book by Danny Rubin
Book & Music & Lyrics by Tim Minchin
Based on the Columbia Pictures Motion Picture and the story by Danny Rubin

Critically acclaimed on both the West End and Broadway, Groundhog Day revels in one man’s journey of self-discovery, day after day. Inspired by the hilarious film starring Bill Murray, Groundhog Day features a book by original co-screenwriter Danny Rubin, and music and lyrics by Tony Award nominee Tim Minchin (Roald Dahl’s Matilda The Musical).

How would you spend your time if forced to repeat the same day over and over again? Phil Connors, a seasoned big-city weatherman, is frustrated to be to reporting the annual Groundhog Day Ceremony in small town Punxsutawney, PA. His arrogance and cynicism are in direct opposition to the cheery townsfolk, who are ready for their favorite groundhog to not see his shadow and welcome an early spring. After disdainfully covering the rodent’s negative forecast, he awakens the next day only to discover it’s February 2 once more. Initially in disbelief, Phil finally accepts he is doomed to repeat the same day over and over again….

Will Phil accept that he is doomed to repeat the same day over and over again? Or will he find the courage to change himself and his fate?

Groundhog Day The Musical has never been produced by TCT or HHT.

GROUNDHOG DAY THE MUSICAL is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI). All authorized performance materials are also supplied by MTI. (www.mtishows.com)
