Broadway comes to CVIC Hall

by Marabel Moorhead, special to The R-C

Carson Valley Community Theatre's production of "Broadway Through the Decades, 100 Years of Broadway Musicals" is featured at the CVIC Hall in Minden on May 14-23. The musical review includes early Broadway tunes to the latest shows performed by local talent ranging from teenagers to mature performers.

"Broadway Through the Decades" is directed by Norris Edson with Carolyn Lancaster as musical director. CVCT produced 2008's "Sounds of Broadway" at the Carson Valley Inn.

"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 Edson.

The Carson Valley Community Theatre group is an all-volunteer organization of 370 members with the mission to promote, create, design and perform theatrical events in Carson Valley.
