This weekend for one night only Upper Michigan residents can get a taste of Broadway.
The Lake Superior Youth Theatre will perform Kids Sing Broadway on Saturday evening. The two shows will include 100 student performers.
â??It's a collection of Broadway plays and doesn't limit to just one,â?? said Hanna Numinen, 15. â??It's a wide variety and itâ??s great.â??
The performance will bring the best of Broadwayâ??s new and old favorites to Marquette's Kaufman Auditorium.
â??Itâ??s going to be fun to just go out there, and put on our show, and just have fun,â?? said Marquette Senior High School student Ethan Bott, 17.
Students in the performance feel it's a one of a kind show for both them and those coming to watch.
â??Kids Sing Broadway is a thing all on its own,â?? said Perry Truscon, 14. â??The kids get to pick what they want to do.â??
There are hundreds of young people who audition for the performances, but the theatre group can only use so many. Due to this limitation some have to wait for the next show, and while we can't reveal which Broadway plays will be seen and heard, expect a little bit of everything.
â??It's a lot of fun,â?? stated Megan Ludwig, one of the performers. â??The dancing is just incredible; the singing will hopefully be great. You will see several group numbers, lots of love duets, fun solos.â??
These kids come from all over the U.P., ranging in age from three to 18. Saturdayâ??s 1 p.m. show will feature first through sixth grades and the 7 p.m. sixth through twelfth grades.
