Tonight’s Show Cancelled

Hello everyone,

As some of you may be aware, MIT is closed today due to the snow.  Unfortunately, this means that our Thursday evening performance is cancelled.  There are still seats on Friday and Saturday that you can reserve.

We are exploring the possibility of adding a matinee on Saturday.  If we decide to do that, we’ll let you know!

E25 Hack

The 2017 showing of Hack, Punt, Tool opened last Friday!

Over the weekend, hackers honored the opening of the show by turning the windows of E25 into a stoplight, reading the letters “HPT.”  The hack was a tribute to the 2007 traffic light hack which inspired the name of the show.

Revival Version – Script and Score

Hey Hack, Punt, Tool fans!

The writing team has spent some time this fall making a few updates to the script and score of the show, and we now have a Revival version!  The new version corrects some typos, updates a few lyrics here and there, and clarifies the Kepler character arc during Act II.  We are pleased that we were able to significantly improve the flow of the show with pretty minimal changes.

Without further ado, here are the script and the score!

In other news, there is a cast now!  If you’ve seen any MTG shows lately, there are some familiar faces, and new ones too!  I will be posting another blog post within a week announcing the cast!  Stay tuned,

-Julie
