WESTON, Conn. -- Weston's Emmanuel Church will salute the talent of the aspiring actors and singers of Weston High School through the showcase "Broadway Bound: A Tribute to WHS Company," on Sunday, Feb. 28.
Members of WHS Company have entertained audiences through both classic and contemporary productions over the years. The showcase will feature music from the Greater Bridgeport Symphony Brass Quintette, drawn from past Company shows, coupled with a preview of WHS' upcoming performance, "Legally Blonde."
Admission is free and it's open to the community. The show also features a door prize package: dinner for two at The Lunch Box and two tickets to "Legally Blonde."
The Company will also host a bake sale during the event and share a stage excerpt of "Legally Blonde." The full performance will debut on Thursday, March 31, at 7:30 p.m., with additional performances on Friday, April 1, and Saturday, April 2 at 8 p.m., and a matinee on Sunday, April 3, at 3 p.m.
WHS Company is a student-run theater organization, founded in 1984, and the high school's largest club, at 90 members strong. Tickets for "Legally Blonde" will be available online soon. Liz Morris is the show's director, and Paul Levin, Monzelle Schmeideck and Patricia Goodrich are its producers.
"WHS Company is both thrilled to be recognized by the community, and grateful to Emmanuel Church for initiating 'Broadway Bound.' We're also thankful for the opportunity to celebrate our cast, while promoting the arts at large in Weston and beyond," said Morris.
"Emmanuel Church is delighted to host 'Broadway Bound' and its salute to the shows performed by Company," said John Boys, Emmanuel Church music coordinator. "The event promises to build community and be a fitting tribute."
