Alpine Theatre Project Announces Summer Concert Series Featuring Broadway Stars

Alpine Theatre Project's busy year continues with the return of its Broadway Concert Series featuring 11 performers from such Broadway shows as "Hamilton," "Rent," and more, as well as 52 students from its Broadway Summer Training Camp. The concerts will run from July 31 to August 8 at the Whitefish Performing Arts Center in Whitefish. The series, entitled, "Love Heals," rotates two different concerts. Four performances will focus on the 11 Broadway performers, and four will focus on the students of ATP's Broadway Summer Training Camp.

The Broadway Concert Series marks the next offering for the professional theatre company that hasn't slowed down since February of 2020. Since then, ATP has created 4 outdoor productions, a 6-week session of theatre classes, 3 full length movies, and 3 performances in its "Artist Challenge" series where local professional artists are commissioned to produce their own work.

"This concert series continues our effort to double down on the creativity and determination that pervades the performing arts to create as much opportunity as possible for artists, students, and patrons," says ATP Artistic Director, Betsi Morrison.

ATP describes "Love Heals" as a poignant and inspiring celebration of our individual differences, our collective humanity, and the voices we can share to improve the world as we continue to try and come out on the other side of a tumultuous year. It is being held in conjunction with ATP's Broadway Summer Training Camp, where 11 Broadway professionals mentor local students. Performances on August 1, 3, 5, & 7 will feature the 11 Broadway professionals performing songs of change, hope, love, and resilience alongside the Flathead's best musicians. Performances on July 31, August 2, 4, & 6 will feature the 52 Broadway Camp students as they present the songs and dances that inspire them to express who they are and what they want to become.
