LINCOLN, Neb.— The 18th annual spring Musical Theatre Showcase will take place on Friday, April 27 at 7:30 p.m. in Westbrook Recital Hall.
IN THE ROOM WHERE IT HAPPENS is fast-paced look inside an audition room where sixteen young performers are auditioning in hopes of booking a job to perform on the stage. The stage manager tries to keep them in line, but her best efforts sometimes fail as the young artists have unique ideas of how to get the director’s attention!
This original performance features short audition cuts from musicals ranging from traditional shows (On the Town and 110 in the Shade among so many others) to contemporary shows (Les Misérables, A Chorus Line, Hamilton, and Company among so many others). Performers featured include graduate and undergraduate students from both the Glenn Korff School of Music and the Johnny Carson School of Theatre and Film. Conceived and directed by UNL’s Coordinator of Musical Theatre Studies Alisa Belflower with Louis Claussen featured at the piano.
The performance is free and open to the public.
