Bay Chamber Concerts presents The World of Musicals
Maine - Great songs from Broadway-style musicals -- sung by great
performers from London’s West End theater district – are coming to our
own Strom Auditorium Tuesday, Apr. 9, at 7
pm, brought to you by Bay Chamber Concerts. The World of Musicals will take you on an enchanting journey back to Gershwin and even
Gilbert and Sullivan, through Sondheim and Rodgers and Hammerstein, all
the way to rock musicals "Mamma Mia” and West
End favorite "We Will Rock You.” That’s in addition to beautiful
ballads from such popular favorites as "Evita,” "Les Miserables” and
"Phantom of the Opera.”
The World of Musicals isn’t just the name given to an evening’s performance. It’s a select
cast of accomplished singers and other
musicians from the West End – London’s equivalent of Broadway -- who
have been featured individually in smash hit productions worldwide and
who as a troop bring you "all the hits in one show.” Having completed a
run in Berlin and other European cities late
last year, the group is now on a US tour that is taking it to Dallas,
San Antonio, Jacksonville, Florida -- and the Strom at Camden Hills
Regional High School, off Route 90 in Rockport, Maine.
The World of Musicals presents a fun performance for the entire family, so get ready to be
enthralled and to sing along to all your
favorite musicals in an unforgettable evening, all for just $25 for
adults and $10 for those under 25 years of age. It is Bay Chamber’s most
ambitious program of the Performing Arts Series and the latest in a
tradition of annual concerts at the Strom that
in earlier years brought the Yamato Drummers and Peking Acrobats to the Mid-coast.
