Broadway Company Presents Musical Theater Nights

Broadway Company Presents Musical Theater Nights

Arrowhead Broadway is putting on “Musical Theater Nights” March 14th, 15th, and 16th in the North Campus theater at 7pm to 10pm.  

 

​​Music Theater Nights is a showcase filled with hits from recent Broadway shows as well as old favorites that everyone seems to know and love. Because the show is mostly directed and performed by students, it’s a chance for them to be leaders and show their creativity. 

 

Senior Maggie Walloch says, “Directing MTN this year has been so rewarding. To be able to have a vision for a number and have the opportunity to bring it to life on stage is an experience that I cannot even put words to.”

 

There are 19 numbers in the show this year. Some of the directors are Senior Brady Shiro, Walloch, and Senior Alex Keoppen. 

 

Some of the musical numbers are from musicals like Hamilton, Dear Evan Hansen, Songs For a New World, Frozen The Musical, West Side Story, Teen Beach Movie, Newsies, Spring Awakening, and more.

 

Tickets are $16.00 to $20.00 and can be purchased on the Arrowhead website. They are available till sold out. 

 

Sophomore Chloë Doll says, “My favorite number is Room Where It Happens from the musical Hamilton. We have worked really hard on it and it has come together really well.”  

 

Alexander Hamilton was one of the founders of the United States. The show Hamilton tells his story. The show looks at his life, from being a poor refugee to being George Washington’s right-hand man, and how he helped shape the government of the country. It also talks about his personal relationships, his political battles, and his death in a duel with Aaron Burr.

 

Stage crew also plays a role in musical theater nights, from setting up the stage and making the props to making sure the lights and sound are perfect. Stage crew also helps change sets during different scenes up in short amounts of time making sure everything is perfect for the next skit. 

 

Max Kasprzak, an Arrowhead High school Junior and Stage crew participant says, “I would have to guess that this year is the most exciting number because of all the different skits that we have planned and the different things that we get to work on.”
