‘Bonnie and Clyde’ musical to steal the stage at Creighton

The Great Depression inspired much in the ways of American art and music, and more than its fair share of legends and desperadoes.

March 21 through 25, Creighton University’s Department of Fine and Performing Arts will tie together these strands by staging the musical Bonnie and Clyde, following the exploits of one of the nation’s most notorious and romanticized criminal duos.

The Tony-nominated musical, with music by Frank Wildhorn, lyrics by Don Black and book by Ivan Menchell, features a blend of rockabilly, gospel, and blues in an exciting and tragic tale of love, adventure and lawlessness as Bonnie Parker (played by Natalie Hanson) and Clyde Barrow (Andrew Wall) cut a swathe across the nation’s midsection and into the popular imagination.

Other Creighton students in the cast include Peter Nicholson as Buck, Torisa Walker as Blanche, Jojo Layton as Eleanore and James Delage as Frank Hamer.

Creighton’s production is directed by Amy Lane, PhD, with musical direction by Stephen Sheftz and choreography by Megan Torbert.

Bonnie and Clyde will run March 21 through 24 at 7:30 p.m., with a March 25 2 p.m. matinee. All performances take place at the Mainstage Theatre in the Lied Education Center for the Arts on the Creighton campus (northeast corner of 24th and Cass streets).

Tickets are available now at the Creighton box office in the Lied Center, online at, or by calling 402-280-1448. Admission prices are $5 for Creighton students, faculty and staff, $15 for senior citizens and $18 general admission.

All Creighton Department of Fine and Performing Arts events are funded, in part, by the generous support of the Richard and Mary McCormick Endowment Fund for the Fine and Performing Arts, the Grace Keenan Fund and other anonymous donors.

Creighton University is a Jesuit, Catholic university bridging health, law, business and the arts and sciences for a more just world.
