SOUTH GLENS FALLS — South Glens Falls High School proudly presents Songs for a New World by Jason Robert Brown on April 16-17. Songs for a New World will be the Drama Club’s first-ever virtual production, streamed on www.ShowTix4U.com.
The South High troupe will be participating in the High School Musical Theatre Awards at Proctors for the fifth consecutive year. They received eight High School Musical Theatre Award nominations and won Best Musical (Tier C) and Best Actress in 2019. Their 2020 production, Damn Yankees, was just days shy of opening before the global pandemic caused it to close.
Songs for a New World is the first musical written by Tony Award winner Jason Robert Brown and premiered Off-Broadway in 1995. It is a contemporary song cycle that unites fictitious and historical characters through themes of self-discovery, love, and connection made in times of the unknown. This production features the innovative work of three student technical crew members and fifteen student performers. Songs is directed and produced by high school music teacher, Betsy-Stambach Fuller, with collaborative efforts from Tina Hayes (associate director), John Benware (pianist), and Chris Reed Jr. (audio engineer).
Shows will be streamed virtually at 7:30 p.m. on both Friday, April 16 and Saturday, April 17. Tickets are $15 per device and can purchased at this link: www.showtix4u.com/event-details/47931.
