Showcase 2011: From Britain to Broadway

The Montclair High School of Visual and Performing Arts continues its tradition of presenting an end of year showcase of student talent. Last year it was all about songs of love in Showcase 2010: Love Notes. This year, the SVPA is taking a trip across the pond and bringing the songs of British musical theater to the stage.

From Britain to Broadway covers everything from Gilbert and Sullivan to rock operas, to current shows and even some shows that will be opening this Spring on Broadway. Director Pat Woodward says, “It’s also a fun challenge for the kids because they need to cultivate British accents.”

The show opens tomorrow night and will play the next two weekends:
