Lee Opera Theatre to present Musical Revue

Posted

The Lee University Opera Theatre, directed by James Frost, will present its Musical Revue in the Squires Recital Hall on Sunday, Nov. 17, at 3 p.m.
The performance, which is the final project of Lee’s Opera Theatre class, will include various scenes and solos spanning the musical theatre’s repertoire from classical to more modern musicals.
The Musical Revue allows every participant of the Opera Theatre to sing at least one solo role in one of the scenes.
“The participants of each scene are challenged to stage their own scene with help from myself and the other participants, which is a great learning tool, instead of just being told what to do,” said Frost, associate professor of music at Lee.
Lee student Abby Newman helped plan this year’s program and cast most of the scenes, as this is what she is hopes to do in the future after graduating, according to Frost.
Opera Theatre began in the spring of 1998 as a workshop and has grown into a production organization performing a Musical Revue in the fall semester, a fully-staged opera from both standard and less traditional repertoire in February, and an opera scenes program during the spring semester.
The performance is free, nonticketed, and open to the public. The Squires Recital Hall is located in the Humanities Center on the Lee University campus.
