Sleepy Eye High School presents: Best of Broadway; a musical revue showcasing a number of popular and long standing songs of Broadway.
The production is a celebration of all things Broadway! Some of the songs featured include “In My Own Little Corner” from Cinderella, “I Know it’s Today” from Shrek, the Musical, “Maria” from West Side Story, a Grease Medley from Grease, “For Good”, from Wicked and “You Can’t Stop the Beat” from Hairspray.
“We have a tremendous amount of musical talent that will be showcased in this production,” states director Sandy Brinkman. They have worked extremely hard to put this show together, under some pretty crazy and hectic schedules.”
Over 25 students are involved in the musical revue.
“One of the most enjoyable and exciting parts of the rehearsal and preparation process was watching students that have never been involved in a stage production before, really shine. Those “rookies” combined with our seasoned veterans, make for one great show” exclaims Brinkman.
The musical revue format is new to the student body, as well as it might be for some audience members.
“It is always a goal to educate along with entertain”, states Brinkman. “I am hoping the audience will gain as much knowledge and appreciation for Broadway as the cast and crew has.”
The intermission will include a pie and coffee social. Performances are Saturday, October 7 at 7:30 pm, Sunday, October 8 at 2:00 pm and Monday, October 9 at 7:30 pm. Tickets are available at the door one hour prior to curtain.
