NEW YORK, March 5 (UPI) -- Canada's Barenaked Ladies are writing the score for a stage musical based on the 1978 big-screen comedy "National Lampoon's Animal House," producers said.

The musical will feature direction and choreography by Tony Award-winner Casey Nicholaw, whose Broadway credits include "The Book of Mormon," "The Drowsy Chaperone" and "Spamalot." It is being produced by Universal Pictures Stage Productions, in association with producers Jeffrey Richards, Jerry Frankel and James L. Nederlander.

Michael Mitnick will write the libretto for "Animal House: The Musical."

Set in a rowdy frat house in the 1960s, the film was directed by John Landis, produced by Ivan Reitman and co-written by Harold Ramis. It starred John Belushi, Tim Matheson, Karen Allen, Tom Hulce and Kevin Bacon.
