Ashland University Theatre’s Drop of a Hat Players, a traveling musical revue troupe, accepts bookings throughout the academic year from September through the beginning of May based on performer availability. Performing classic and contemporary Broadway show tunes with a pianist, the troupe is available to perform at banquets, meetings, parties, civic group engagements or other special events.
Drop of a Hat Players must be booked at least two weeks in advance of the requested event. Due to students' busy class, rehearsal and production schedules, shows are scheduled around their on-campus responsibilities usually in the evenings or on weekends. Performances are 20 to 60 minutes in length depending upon need. Donations for the performances are customary and encouraged. Founded in the early 1990s as an outreach program for the Ashland University Theatre Department, the group also provides a performance training opportunity for students.
The theme for the 2017-2018 Season is "A Flash to the Past" as the performers reflect on songs from shows produced by AU Theatre for almost 50 years. Here is a link to the program which will be performed at the annual showcase on Sunday, April 8 at 2 p.m. in the Studio Theatre. Get your free reserved-seat ticket at the AU Box Office: 419.289.5125.
