'Broadway through the Decades' comes to CVIC Hall

by Marabel Moorhead, special to The R-C

Broadway through The Decades, a musical production by Carson Valley Community Theatre, is featured at the CVIC Hall in Minden on May 14-23. The musical review will include early Broadway tunes to the latest shows. Local talent ranging from teenage to mature performers will delight the audience with their renditions of familiar Broadway show tunes and dance numbers.

The production is the second run of Broadway hits for the CVCT group. The production is directed by Norris Edson with Carolyn Lancaster as musical director. The musical review will take the audience on a sound excursion of popular show tunes.

"This show will be different from our first in that the artists will be singing more than one song. We have a wide variety of talented singers who can really entertain an audience" said Lancaster.

Some of the favorites featured are from" Phantom of the Opera," "South Pacific," "Gypsy," "Chicago," and "Smokey Joe's Cafe." The show includes two dance numbers performed by teams from All About Dance, choreographed by Serena Bartholomew.

Carson Valley Community Theatre is dedicated to showcasing local talent through theater arts and musical production.

"Our group's passion is to share the great talent in this valley with theatergoers. We believe that if you have a talent, we have an avenue for you to explore. It is the community that benefits through our combined efforts," said Norris Edson.

The group produced the hit show "Sounds of Broadway" in 2008 at the Carson Valley Inn.

The performance dates are May 14-16 & 21-23 at the CVIC Hall in Minden.
