The Thistle Rose Players and Young Artists Join Forces for MUSIC BY MENKEN
One of the most prolific composers of our time, Alan Menken has been responsible for the music accompanying many beloved favorites.
Menken has collaborated with such lyricists as Lynn Ahrens, Howard Ashman, Tim Rice and Stephen Schwartz. With eight Academy Award wins (four each for Best Score and Best Song), Menken is the second most prolific Oscar winner in the music categories. He has also won 11 Grammy Awards, a Tony Award and other honors.
Even if the name Alan Menken is not immediately familiar to all listeners, they will surely recognize some of his work among modern classics they already know well.
The Thistle Rose Players and Young Artists have joined artistic forces to feature music from many of Menken's works including Little Shop of Horrors, Sister Act: the Musical, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, A Christmas Carol, Hercules, Tangled, Pocahontas and The Little Mermaid. In keeping with our mission, this diverse and multigenerational cast and production team features artists of varying experience levels.
Please join us for this journey into several well-loved classic scenes from shows which transcend human differences and express universal emotions and themes through the language of music.
