Trousdale School will hold its annual musical June 20 and 21 at Bradley Central High School.

Music director Marilyn Mosingo Sherlin said this year’s theme is “Born to be on Broadway.”

This year’s musical will feature more acting and drama then past performances as students perform scenes from select shows.

Mosingo Sherlin said she loves how new talents are discovered and showcased each year.

The Broadway theme is connected with students’ studies of Broadway shows.

“They have just loved it so we thought we would build our musical around it,” Mosingo Sherlin said.

A few of the selections include scenes from “Annie,” “Jersey Boys,” and “Phantom of the Opera.”

Students have been working on the production since January.

Mosingo Sherlin said the costumes have “been fun” and more elaborate than previous years. This will be the school’s sixth production.

“I would say it’s our besy production yet,” Mosingo Sherlin said.

Mount Olive Ministries has also partnered with the school to provide media assistance for the production.

The musical will be performed at 7 each night with the auditorium doors opening at 6:30 p.m. The lobby to the auditorium will be open starting at 6 to give attendees the opportunity to enjoy the New York street décor.

Tickets for the event are $10. Premium seating, the front three rows, is $25. Tickets are available by calling the school at (423) 479-7130.

Tickets will also be available each night of the event until it is sold out.
