The Bethel College Academy of Performing Arts is “Going Broadway!” Saturday and Sunday.
Pieces from musicals, such as “The Sound of Music,” “Music Man,” “Wicked,” “Hair,” “Chicago” and “A Chorus Line,” will be performed by the academy’s music and dance students.
The academy will present shows on two days, at 7:30 p.m. Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday in Krehbiel Auditorium at Bethel College in North Newton.
Tickets will be available at the door at $5 for students, $8 for adults and free for children 3 and younger.
The show features new choreography from the academy’s administrative director Danika Bielek and director of dance Amber Seymour, as well as collaborations between the dance program and Suzuki Strings program directed by Rebecca Schloneger and Tyler Hendrickson.
Vocal solos by traditional music students Emily Luedke and Kaleigh Glanton also will be highlights of the show.
This concert has been made possible in part by grants from the Youth Development Foundation, The Newton Community Partners and the Kansas Arts Commission.
The Bethel College Academy was established in 1996 by Don Kehrberg with a strong belief in the collaboration between parent and child, music and dance, professional artist and aspiring creators, a safe environment for students, a supportive and engaged community, nationally certified and degreed faculty and exposure to many techniques and styles of performing arts.
