Rise Above Performing Arts Presents GLORY DAYS!

Rehearsals begin today for Rise Above Performing Arts (Jacob Ruscoe, Artistic Director) upcoming production of Glory Days by Nick Blaemire (Music & Lyrics) and James Gardiner (Book Writer) which opens on Friday, November 1st and will run through November 3rd.

KEVIN Ray Johnson (The Unpredictable Times; Porgy and Bess at The Metropolitan Opera) will direct the coming of age musical with Joi Chapman as Music Director.

The show will star Ryan Modjeski (Asolo Repertory Theatre's Evita; Ah, Wilderness!) as Will, Cooper Flerlage as Andy, Addison Ruscoe (Asolo Repertory Theatre's Shakespeare in Love) as Skip and Yoshi Wilson as Jack. 

Dylan Ramon will understudy. 

A year after graduating high school, four best friends reconnect on their old school's football field. Will has called the boys together with a mission: to hack into the sprinkler system so that it goes off when the jocks who bullied them in high school take the field for a charity game. But as the guys wait for instructions on how to break into the system, they quickly realize how dramatically their lives have grown apart. With a soaring pop-rock score, Glory Days is a poignant and witty coming-of-age story about friends searching for understanding and validation as they face the consequences of growing up.
