Off-Broadway theatrical group ‘STOMP’ will perform on Saturday, Jan. 20 at IU Auditorium


As a stop on their national tour, the stage show “STOMP" will be performing at 8 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 20 in the IU Auditorium. "STOMP” is a well-known percussion group that has performed at IU several times over the last decade.  

The explosive performance by the “STOMP” cast features the use of matchboxes, brooms, garbage cans, Zippo lighters and other household items in a sequence of choreographed percussion movement and physical comedy.  

“STOMP" was created in 1991 by Steve McNicholas and Luke Cresswell in Brighton, England and began its run in the United States in 1994 at the Orpheum Theatre, New York City. Since its beginning, "STOMP” has toured nationally and internationally and performed on stages in Abu Dhabi, Hong Kong and Argentina among many others. The group performed at the off-Broadway New York City theatre for nearly thirty years; their last show was on Jan. 8, 2023.
