Top Gun: The Musical is a World Premiere booked at the 2014 Minnesota Fringe Festival this August!
The production is a labor of love from everyone on the creative team: Windy Bowlsby (Concept & Choreographer), Tim Wick (Bookwriter/Lyricist), Chad Dutton (Composer) and John Newstrom (Director), and we can use your help to make it happen!
With your generosity we will be able to bring Top Gun to new heights on The Illusion Stage. Every dollar raised will go to polishing the production and making it accessible to as many people as possible. We have a laundry list of things we'd like to do including a live band, sequined flightsuits, the ability to rent a dance studio for rehearsals, incredible puppets, and inverted F-14 and so much more!
Every single contribution will help make a huge difference to our show and we greatly appreciate all of your support.
TOP GUN: THE MUSICAL retells the story from the classic 1986 film starring Tom Cruise as Maverick. When he encounters a pair of MiGs over the Persian Gulf, his wingman is clearly outflown and freaks. On almost no fuel, Maverick is able to talk him back down to the carrier. When his wingman turns in his wings, Maverick is moved up in the standings and sent to the Top Gun Naval Flying School.
Can you just imagine how much better that's going to be with all new music and choreography? We sure can't. Going to be Epic.
Risks and challenges
Live theater can be a risk - it's always full of challenges and you discover news ways of thinking and solving in the process. To us that's part of the fun!
Our production team has put together successful and well received productions of Highlander: The Musical!, The Complete Works of William Shatner (abridged), Boogie-ography, and many more at the MN Fringe Festival for years. This is a natural evolution for us and we look forward to translating this classic story to the stage.
As for rewards - We've already begun recording parts for our soundtrack and have all the music written, so we will be able to make all our estimated delivery dates. We look forward to sharing our story with everyone.
