SONGS FOR A NEW WORLD
RAHWAY HIGH SCHOOL
1/10-1/11/2014
Jason Robert Brown says, "it's about one moment. It's about hitting the wall and having to make a choice, or take a stand, or turn around and go back." These are the stories and characters of today, the SONGS FOR A NEW WORLD.Brown transports his audience from the deck of a 1492 Spanish sailing ship to a ledge 57 stories above Fifth Avenue to meet a startling array of characters ranging from a young man who has determined that basket-ball is his ticket out of the ghetto to a woman whose dream of marrying rich nabs her the man of her dreams and a soulless marriage. With a small, powerhouse multi-ethnic cast and a driving, exquisitely crafted score running the gamut of today's popular music, SONGS FOR A NEW WORLD is a great way to bring the next generation into the theatre.

BACK TO THE 80'S
WEST HUDSON ARTS THEATER CO
1/11-1/11/2014
Remember when actors became American Presidents? When Bubble skirts andblue eye shadow were cool? When Atari was cutting edge technology ? BACK TO THE 80's is a "totally awesome" musical that tells the story of the senior class of William Ocean High School that graduated in the 1980's, as remembered and seen through the eyes of Corey Palmer, who is now 30-something. Throw in a Star Wars dream sequence, high-energy dance routines, the obligatory 80's party scene, copious amounts of blue eye-shadow, twenty cans of hairspray, as well as some of the most popular songs ever written, and the result is a musical that will not only delight and amuse an audience of any age, but will also inspire any young cast.
