Holiday Favorite Red Curtain Broadway Revue Celebrates Musical Theater

A bit of Broadway comes to Ellensburg with the Red Curtain Broadway Revue, an evening of favorites from a variety of Broadway classics both old and new. Production numbers include “Forget About the Boy”, from Thoroughly Modern Millie, “Shadowland,” from The Lion King, and “Bui Doi,” from Miss Saigon, along with classics such as “Danny Boy,” and “Blackbird,” by the The Beatles.

The Revue features students in Central Washington University’s bachelor of fine arts musical theatre performance program, and spotlights their singing, dancing, and acting skills in a variety of scenes, solos, and excerpts from musical theatre. Choreographed, directed, and performed by CWU students, the production combines the enthusiasm and exuberance of youth with professional stage skills, along with serious talent.

This year also features choreography by new faculty member Casey Craig. Craig joins the faculty after a successful musical career across the northwest, most recently in Seattle Musical Theatre’s production of 9 to 5.

The Red Curtain Broadway Revue will be performed November 17, 18, and 19 at 7:30 p.m. in McConnell Auditorium. There will also be a matinee performance at 2:00 p.m. on November 20. Tickets are $12 general admission, $10 for seniors/students, and $7 for CWU students with ID. Tickets can be purchased online at www.cwu.edu/theatre/tickets or by calling 509-963-1429. Tickets may also be purchased in person at the Wildcat Shop Customer Service at the Student Union and Recreation Building.

Parking is free in all university lots after 4:30 p.m. and on weekends, except in residential housing lots and in specially designated spaces.

CWU is the only state institution that offers a bachelor of fine arts degree with highly competitive programs in musical theatre, performance, and design and production.
