From the comedy duo that brought you Point Break Live! and the award winning Clue...comes a stage adaptation of the classic film Groundhog Day. The bitter and appallingly self-centered weatherman, Phil Connors, searches frantically (and often hilariously) for a way to escape Groundhog Day, which he continues to relive over...and over...and over...and over......
Phil is a bitter and appallingly self-centered TV weatherman from Pennsylvania who can’t help but treat his coworkers with great contempt, especially his producer Rita and cameraman Larry. Phil especially loathes the annual Groundhog Day festivities in Punxsutawney, PA, where he is forced to be on assignment. When the day is over, Phil is eager to retreat, but a freak snowstorm keeps him trapped in town. He wakes up the next morning with the strangest sense of déjà vu: he seems to be living the same day over. And over. And over again. Seemingly trapped in Groundhog Day, Phil searches frantically for a way to escape the cycle.
