Warwick, R.I. – May 18, 2015: College students of all ages are participating in a five-week intensive rehearsal and workshop that will culminate in “Hello Broadway,” a musical revue that will be staged in the Community College of Rhode Island’s Bobby Hackett Theater at the Knight Campus in Warwick next month.
The show will include excerpts and arrangements from productions such as “42nd Street,” “Beautiful: A Carole King Musical,” “Jersey Boys,” “South Pacific” and many other favorites. Performances are scheduled at 2 and 8 p.m. Friday, June 12; 8 p.m. Saturday, June 13; and 2 p.m. Sunday, June 14.
Reviewer Tony Annicone from “Don Gillis’ Little Rhode Theatre” called the 2014 production “a terrific, fun filled show of song and dance” where “harmonies soar.”
Dr. Audrey Kaiser, associate professor of Music at CCRI and creator of this summer cabaret, is the director of the show. Kaiser has toured the United States for more than 25 years performing, arranging and recording with “Two of Hearts,” a two-woman cabaret act.
Carol B. Lyon provides vocal coaching in the musical theater style for the workshop and Margaret Hayes provides intricate choreography for the production.
The CCRI “Hello Broadway” project is fully endowed through generous corporate and individual donations as well as CCRI student activity fees through the Office of Student Life and Student Government.
Tickets can be purchased through the box office at 401-825-1135. Prices are $17 for general admission and $12 for students and seniors; children younger than 12 are admitted free.
