The Stephens College Summer Theatre Institute will finish this season with the ever-popular musical revue on Monday, June 23, at 7:30 p.m. in the Macklanburg Playhouse on Willis Avenue.
This year's show, titled "A Grand Night for Show Music," consists of a selection of songs from three popular Broadway musicals, two of which contain quite a few dance numbers, choreographed by guest artist Millie Garvey. She has graced Stephens with her choreographing talents many times, most recently with the musical “Respect: A Musical Journey of Women.”
The show also contains a jazz number and a tap number choreographed by local dance instructors and long-time STI teachers Maggie Dethrow and Marie Brannigan-Robertson. The students have been working on these numbers since day one in mid-May. All other numbers were choreographed and learned in the past two weeks.
Audience members can expect humor, charm and a powerful performance from the students. Director Rob Doyen, another long-time Stephens faculty member, has selected material that really allows the students to showcase their strengths.
Patrons are advised to arrive early to snag seats for this annual show, which typically nearly fills the house.
The show, which is free and open to the public, is suitable for all ages and will run approximately an hour.
The Summer Theatre Institute is an on-campus intensive theatre experience for students between their first and second years at Stephens.
