Concert of Music by Composer of “Wicked”
The Interlakes Summer Theatre will be presenting “Our Corner of the Sky“, a concert of song and dance featuring the music of Stephen Schwartz. Though Stephen Schwartz is most recently recognized for composing the Broadway musical “Wicked”, audiences are also familiar with his scores for his first musical “Godspell” (on the 2014 ILST summer schedule) and for “Pippin” both of which recently enjoyed Broadway revivals. And what may also be a surprise to some, are the many Disney tunes Stephen Schwartz composed including the musical for Pocahontas and Hunchback of Notre Dame and The Prince of Egypt.
The show will have two performances at the Interlakes Auditorium, One Laker Lane, Meredith, over Mother’s Day weekend, Saturday May 10 at 7:30 and Sunday May11th at 3:00. All tickets are $25.00 and can be purchased by phoning 1-888-245-6374 or at interlakestheatre.com. Tickets will also be available at the door.
This years show will be written & directed by NYC’s David Beris and Ellie Kahn, and will feature familiar faces like Mikey LoBalsalmo, Graham Campbell, Carla Martinez, Nancy Barry and new faces appearing in the 2014 company-Charles Baran, Andrew J. Hampton, Paul Gregg, Alyssa Gomez, Jesse Alvarez, Ellie Kahn.
There will also be a silent auction one hour prior to each performance to help support the theatre in it’s pre-season preparation, and we are still seeking several $100.00 sponsors for our performing troupe. Every person who sponsors one of these actors, will be invited to dinner or brunch with the Schwartz cast during that same weekend!
