HPU to Host 'From Cabaret to Stage'

04.7.2010

HIGH POINT, N.C., April 7, 2010– High Point University will host “From Cabaret to Stage” at 7:30 p.m. on April 21 in the Pauline Theatre of the Hayworth Fine Arts Center. The event is open to the public.

Co-directed by Dr. Alexa Schlimmer, associate professor of music at HPU, and Marcia Dills, accompanist, the event features HPU Music and Theatre majors, along with a chamber ensemble, performing a semi-staged production of excerpts from the award-winning musical, “The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee.”

The performance will include longtime Cabaret veteran Steve McHugh. The production is supported by a number of students who will work sound and lights, as well as Cabaret regular, Cody Russell, a junior at HPU, who will serve in multiple ways — co-stage director, stage manager and singer/actor.

Singers involved in the performance will interact between and among the characters, who will all be dressed according to their part — not in typical formal concert dress. Also, Schlimmer says the singers will be on stage with the chamber orchestra, making for a truly unique experience.

Tickets are available for students, faculty, staff and the general public by contacting the HPU Hayworth Fine Arts Center Box Office at 336-841-4673. Students receive one complimentary ticket by showing their valid HPU Passport.
