The Reynolds High School Choir will present 'A Broadway Revue,' featuring music from 'Gypsy,' 'Sweeney Todd,' 'Oklahoma' and other musicals this weekend.

Performances take place at 7 p.m. Friday, Nov. 18, as well as 2 and 7 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 19, at Reynolds, 1698 S.W. Cherry Park Road, Troutdale. Admission is $5.

Emily Brant, 17, a senior and a second alto, says she will be singing solo on 'Rose's Turn' from 'Gypsy.'

'It's just a really strong and powerful song, and it comes from a mother's perspective,' she says. 'It's cool to play a part that's coming from a perspective that's different from my age.'

Marissa Booker, 18, a senior and a second alto, is excited about the revue and will take a solo on 'When You're Good to Mama' from 'Chicago.'

'I can belt it out, and it makes me feel awesome,' she says of the song. 'It's not a shy, quiet reserved part. It's one of those let-it-all-out parts.'

She adds that the choir students are enjoying rehearsing the revue, and says that they're developing close personal bonds.

'You're there after school almost every day,' she says. 'I've gotten to know quite a few people better than I would have if this had not happened.'
