Musical Theatre Class of 2020 Senior Showcase

Senior musical theatre majors from Anderson University’s School of Music, Theatre, and Dance will virtually premiere their 2020 senior showcase on Friday, May 8 at 7:30 p.m. on YouTube and Facebook.

Students have reimagined songs and choreography such as, “On the Street Where You Live” from My Fair Lady, “Giants in the Sky” from Into the Woods, and “Forget About the Boy” from Thoroughly Modern Millie to create a unique musical experience. The collaborative effort of senior students also features virtual monologues from contemporary theatre, as well as clips from recent musical theatre performances. The event is directed by David Coolidge, director of musical theatre, and assisted by David Duncan, music director.

Over the past four years, musical theatre students at Anderson University have performed in a variety of musicals, operas, and plays that were made possible through The Boze Lyric Theatre Endowment. Performances include Violet, And the World Goes ‘Round, Doubt, You’re a Good Man Charlie Brown, The Marvelous Wonderettes, and The Marriage of Figaro.
