Toxic is Back! For FREE in the Park this Summer!
Horizon’s musical comedy sensation The Toxic Avenger will be outside in the ATL this summer when it hits Piedmont Park, June 9th through the 12th– and thousands of FREE tickets will be available to the public beginning May 12. Get ready to experience an Atlanta hit in the center of our city!
Last summer, Horizon’s sold-out musical Avenue Q was a rollicking fun party in the Park, playing to thousands who came to picnic, play and watch fantastic professional musical theatre in Piedmont Park. And it’s free!” says Lisa Adler, Horizon’s Co-Artistic/Producing Director. “The Toxic Avenger was another runaway hit for Horizon in our Little Five Points home this past winter. It’s just so much fun – upbeat, smart and silly at the same time with a hugely energetic and talented cast, fantastic rock music and a live band. Everyone leaves smiling every night, so it is the perfect show to bring together Atlantans in the heart of our city under the sky and treetops this summer.”
Full of off-beat humor and an amazing score, The Toxic Avenger chronicles Melvin Ferd the Third, whose crusade to stop the corrupt mayor gets him dumped in toxic waste. From the smoke emerges our green, gooey superhero with mega-strength - The Toxic Avenger, or Toxie for short. He’s here to save his home town from toxic waste, win the love of the beautiful blind librarian, stop global warming and bring a brand new day of clean air and harmony to New Jersey and the world. This tour de force for five powerhouse actor/singers playing over 30 roles keeps the action spinning as the music rocks the park.
