Sam Barlow Theater presents a show of songs
Broadway Musical Revue opens Thursday, March 13
This March, a musical buffet awaits audiences at Sam Barlow High with the schools Broadway Musical Revue.
Students will perform a variety of Broadway musical selections at 7:30 p.m. March 13, 14 and 15 and at 3 p.m. Sunday, March 16, at the high school, 5105 S.E. 302nd Ave., Gresham.
Were taking the audience through a range of emotions, said co-director Debra Stevens. Theyll laugh, theyll cry, theyll be entertained.
Stevens is co-directing with choir director Solveig Nyberg.
The cast features 25 students in choir, theater and a combination of both departments, including seniors Clark Anderson, choir president, and Madi Stevens, vice president.
The duo began their musical theater careers together in their fifth-grade production of Aladdin and co-starred in Damascus Middle Schools Beauty and the Beast as the lead characters.
I love that this is a compilation of songs and theres a different feeling to each song, Anderson said. His favorite pieces are Seasons of Love from Rent, which the seniors sing, and Seize the Day from Newsies.
Stevens, an aspiring musical theater performer who plans to pursue the art as her college major, enjoys the straight show of singing.
I love how it moves from fun to serious, she said.
The musical pieces range from solos and duos to small and large groups.
Some selections the choir sang at regionals this month, and two of the choirs selections, Little Red Hat and Ill Be Here, will be performed at state in April.
Tickets are $6 for students and $8 for adults. For more information, call the school at 503-674-5600.Add a comment
