Northeast Johnson County residents will have one more chance tonight to catch the SM East theatre department’s annual Musical Revue, a breezily-paced performance of Broadway hits from the past 20 years.
“We started the revue a few years ago to give more kids a chance to shine on stage,” said director Brian Cappello. “We have such an incredible amount of talent at East, and we wanted to give the community a chance to see it.”
This year’s revue features two dozen performances — solos, duets and big groups — with select cuts from shows like Rent, Footloose, Mamma Mia and Hairspray.
Approximately 50 SM East students perform in the production.
The final performance of this year’s revue is 7 p.m. Friday in the SM East auditorium. Tickets are $7 at the door, or free with a student ID.
Here’s are a couple clips from Thursday’s show, with Chloe Kerwin and Austin Dalgleish performing Falling Slowly from the musical Once, and Abby Cramer performing Dyin’ Ain’t So Bad from Bonnie and Clyde.
