Nick Adams, Ryann Redmond & More Set for Theatre Aspen School's Broadway Dreams Foundation Revue
Theatre Aspen Director of Education announced today that tickets are on sale for The Broadway Dreams Foundation (BDF) revue on Saturday, July 11 at 7:30pm at the Aspen District Theatre. The show, entitled GENERATION, is a unique Broadway concert event, with performances by Aspen's aspiring young actors alongside Broadway talent, including Nick Adams (Wicked), Kyle Brown (Legally Blonde), Craig D'Amico (Annie Get Your Gun), Quentin Earl Darrington (Ragtime), Greg Kamp (Catch Me If You Can), and Ryann Redmond (If/Then, Bring It On). Directed by director/choreographer Otis Sallid, who conceived, directed and choreographed the original production of Smokey Joe's Café, and of late has choreographed the Superbowl and the Academy Awards, GENERATION promises to sweep audiences away with dynamic and uplifting performances by a whole new generation of talented, young performers paying tribute to the incredible Broadway legends who came before.
At least one participant in Aspen's GENERATION will receive an invitation to the Broadway Dreams Showcase, in New York City in the fall.
Graham Northrup, Director of Education with Theatre Aspen, commented on the opportunity to host Broadway Dreams in Aspen: "It's great for our students to get to work up close with Broadway talent, and on top of that, perform with them on stage. It fits with our mission to provide excellent theatre education. This will be a great chance local audiences to see just what talent our valley has to offer, along with performances from a great Broadway team."
