FHT to Present BROADWAY JUKEBOX, 4/25
Fountain Hills Theater has announced the return to its stage of the interactive musical revue, Broadway Jukebox. In this one-of-a-kind musical, audience members who arrive at least 15 minutes before curtain, are invited to select their favorites from our giant jukebox of over 100 of the greatest Broadway songs ever written. The choices are tallied and a brand-new revue, created by the audience, is brought to life before their very eyes by our talented and versatile cast. Each show is as unique and as different as the audience that created it!
When no two shows are ever the same, it can be - to put it mildly - a challenge. As exciting for the performers as it is for the audience, a great part of the show takes place backstage out of the audience's sight. Broadway Jukebox requires an amazing cast of actors whose versatility is put to the test each night as they adapt to the demands of each evening's audience. During the half hour before curtain, the cast mingles with the audience, and collects their jukebox selections for the evening. Those selections are then carried backstage where the choices are quickly tallied and the most requested songs are compiled. With the help of the staff, songs are frantically put in dramatic and comedic order, divided by style, duets and ensemble numbers and then with literally only minutes to go until curtain, the final list is copied on to a giant whiteboard which is posted backstage, just in time for the cast to make their first entrance! Broadway Jukebox was created and directed by FHT's Artistic/Managing Director Peter J. Hill, choreographed by Noel Irick and musically directed and accompanied by Irene Lopez. The show stars Alex Gonzalez, Peter J. Hill, Noel Irick, Jacqui Notorio, Stephen Serna and Janine Smith.
