Broadway bound

September 11, 2013


Sept. 11--How about the Broadway experience without the traffic, long lines and packed pathways?

You may be in luck thanks to the Stage Alive Community Concert Association's musical series featuring "Back On Broadway" Saturday evening.

The show will take place at Culpeper County High School starting at 7:30 p.m.

A Matt Davenport Productions creation, this show features 10 star-struck performers who land in NYC searching for their big break on Broadway while belting out familiar show tunes.

Adult tickets cost $25 and for students the cost is $5.

The show is filled with new popular show tunes and all-time classics from "The Producers," "Ragtime," "Memphis, Legally Blonde," Mary Poppins, "Avenue Q," "Jersey Boys," "9 to 5," "The Adams Family," and Mama Mia." This show also features revivals from "Anything Goes," "South Pacific," "Evita," and "Hello Dolly."

"Back On Broadway" is the first concert of this season. Here is the remaining schedule:

--Umi Garrett, classical pianist, Oct. 8

--The Diamonds, 50s and 60s rock 'n' roll, Nov. 19

--Brass 5, classical, swing, jazz, Feb. 8, 2014

--John Berry, country, March 27, 2014

--An evening with Hal Linden, big band and Broadway hits, April 24, 2014

Stage Alive is a non-profit agency with an all-volunteer staff that sponsors at least six concerts annually from September to April.
