Austin Theatre Project presents Title of Show.
[title of show] tells the story of two good friends, Jeff and Hunter. They have always dreamt of doing something important in the world of theatre. Another theatre festival is coming soon, and they decide to write a musical and participate in the event. They have little time, as in only three weeks left, but they try their best.
The boys bring in Heidi and Susan for further help and inspiration and the four decide that they will submit whatever they have written when the three-week deadline arrives. [title of show] is a show about dreams, friendship, and above all else, it is a tribute to everything musical theatre.
