Overview

Cannibal! The Musical will be at James K. Polk Theater in Nashville, TN

Cannibal! The Musical is a fun-filled, action packed, delightfully campy night of musical comedy. Based on the true story of Alferd Packer — the only person convicted of cannibalism in America – the show follows Alferd and his companions, on the hunt for Colorado gold, when they lose their way in the wilderness and are forced to consider unthinkable acts: Singing!…Dancing!…and possibly eating somebody.

Originally a cult classic movie, Cannibal! The Musical was written by South Park and The Book of Mormon’s Trey Parker. Conceived when he was a film student at the University of Colorado. it was Parker’s first time working with his creative partner, Matt Stone. This theatrical production, bears all the hallmarks of a Parker-Stone collaboration: irreverent humor, uproarious lyrics, and catchy tunes.

With songs like “When I Was On Top of You” and “Meat my Destiny” this parody of classic American musicals takes Oklahoma and adds a dash of Friday the 13th, to cook up a deliciously ridiculous evening of musical theatre.

Cannibal! The Musical made its official debut to packed houses at David Mirvish’s Panasonic Theatre in Toronto in 2015.
