    2011 Spring Performances

    Vocal Performance Concert

    The Songs of RODGERS & HART
    Music by Richard Rodgers
    Lyrics by Lorenz Hart
    Conceived by J. Barry Lewis, Lynnette Barkley and Craig D. Ames
    Musical Arrangements by Craig D. Ames

    BEGUILED AGAIN was originally produced by Pope Theatre Company in Manalapan, Florida. Louis Tyrrell, Producing Director

    The remarkable partnership of composer Richard Rodgers and lyricist Lorenz Hart spanned twenty-four years, resulting in the scores for thirty stage musicals and nine films. While their songs are acknowledged as among the most sophisticated and witty of their time, they could also be stunning in their simplicity and directness. BEGUILED AGAIN illuminates the astonishing breadth of their output with a musical menu offering nearly fifty selections from the incomparable Rodgers and Hart songbook. This cleverly compiled potpourri juxtaposes the urbane and the melancholy, the sardonic and the romantic, providing ever-changing and contrasting emotional journeys that give this revue real momentum. There is no linear plot or "and then they wrote" narrative. Rather, the songs are grouped thematically in ways that allow them to tell their own stories and reveal their splendor in the process. Variety and vigor have always been the Rodgers and Hart hallmarks. Perhaps their illustrious compeer, Irving Berlin (who also knew a thing or two about songwriting) summed it up best with his famous maxim: "Tuneful and tasty, schmaltzy and smart - music by Rodgers, lyrics by Hart."

    BEGUILED AGAIN is presented through special arrangement with R & H Theatricals: www.rnh.com

    Dance Performance Concert

    Dance is an art form which uses the human body as an instrument to express one’s ideas and creativity.  During training and performance, the knowledge and influences absorbed over time encourage a well-rounded dancer.  Dedicated to versatility, Act 1 displays the wide range of techniques that our performers are exposed to.  From Ballet dance to Modern dance, to Jazz dance, the dancers learn the techniques, the elements, and the qualities that differentiate each.   The Dance Education Project for the 2016-2017 school year is The 21st Century Contemporary Artist Experience.  Guest Artists have been chosen to educate our high school dance majors on defining contemporary dance in the 21st century by teaching their personal technique, the influences of their style and the artistry/expression of the style by creating or recreating a piece based on their 21st century contemporary movement style. Each dance piece in Act 2 incorporates a specific technique and vocabulary along with the guest artists’ personal choreographic choices. Please come see our Annual Spring Dance Concert, Friday, May 12th, 2017 at 7pm!  Enjoy our dancers as they express their passion for performance.
