THE HASTY PUDDING THEATRICALS PROUDLY PRESENTS ITS 173rd PRODUCTION: SHIP HAPPENS

Cowabunga! It’s 1986, and four unlikely misfits have received mysterious invitations
to join the extravagantly wealthy CEO of WorldCorp, Inc. — MILLIE O’NAIR — for a cruise on her luxury yacht, the S.S. Bestos: former dictator IVAN TARULLIGAN, male model and bodacious beefcake HUGH GEEGO, cripplingly introverted inventor with a vendetta IDA ZERVBETTER and her faithful robot assistant SHE-3PO, and world-famous adventurer Mindiana Bones. Millie soon announces that she will be stepping down as CEO of WorldCorp to pursue her long-time dream of becoming the next Queen of England. What’s more, she will be appointing one of her invitees as her successor!

But when Mindiana Bones never shows up, our hero — LOTTA BAGGAGE, a scrappy bellhop who yearns for more — sees her chance. Can our plucky protagonist keep up the charade of masquerading as a legendary adventurer? Will Millie’s thankless assistant AIDEN DABOSS ever catch a break, or at the very least take a chill pill? Will blundering Captain HANK ERSAWEIGH ever catch the ship’s friendly neighborhood stowaway, KENT FINDMENOW? And when will the ship’s bartender, MAYA TAKEYOURORDER learn to see the bigger pitcher? Come find out at HPT 173: SHIP HAPPENS!

This year’s writers are Maureen Clare ’24 and Kalos Chu ’23, with lyrics by Christian Carson ’23.
