CAMP MIDNIGHT TURNS THE MUSIC BOX UPSIDE-DOWN WITH
NEW YEAR’S EVE ON THE S.S. POSEIDON
IT’S NOT OVER ’TIL THE FAT LADY SINKS IN BELOVED DISASTER EPIC THE POSEIDON ADVENTURE,
HOSTED BY CAPTAIN DICK O’DAY AND HELL IN A HANDBAG PRODUCTIONS

In the iconic 1972 action-disaster epic The Poseidon Adventure, a luxury ocean liner overturns at midnight on New Year’s Eve. This December 31, 2012, on the 40th anniversary of The Poseidon Adventure, Camp Midnight and the Music Box Theatre resuscitate New Year’s Eve on the S.S. Poseidon, a campy celebration set against the backdrop of the seminal disaster movie. The SS Poseidon’s departure is precisely timed so that the onscreen New Year’s Eve toast and simultaneous catastrophe synchronize with the real stroke of midnight in Chicago.
