The Carteret Community Theatre continues its 61st season of performances with “Broadway at Its Best,” premiering next Thursday at Joslyn Hall on the campus of Carteret Community College in Morehead City.
Show times are 8 p.m. Feb. 18-19 and Feb. 25-27. Tickets are $10, available at Poor Richard’s Paint Store in Morehead City or by calling 247-5838 or 726-1152.
With their new production, “Broadway at Its Best,” directed by Katie Dixon, the Carteret Community Theatre hopes to cure the winter doldrums. The play features one of the community’s leading musicians and longtime theatre participant, Carolyn Meadows, at the piano.
The play’s material is drawn from some of the most outstanding musical shows of Broadway past and present. The fast-paced show includes solos, duets and groups singing.
Group numbers include “Do You Hear the People Sing” from “Les Miserables,” “Seasons of Love” from “Rent” and Irving Berlin’s “There’s No Business Like Show Business” from “Annie Get Your Gun.”
Solo numbers include “This is the Moment” from “Jekyll and Hyde” and “The Wizard and I” from “Wicked.” A very promising tenor who is new to the Carteret Community Theatre stage, Eric Martinez, will sing solos and duets with some of the shows featured vocalists.
Director Ms. Dixon presented “Broadway at Its Best” to the theatre group last November and immediately won the support of the group.
Unique to the musical will be the support of local small town mayors.
Carteret County mayors will come to the play, say a few words of welcome and greet patrons.
Among the featured greeters will be Mayor Darryl Garner of Newport, Mayor Ken Jones of Pine Knoll Shores, Mayor Art Schools of Emerald Isle, Mayor Trace Cooper of Atlantic Beach and Mayor Jerry Jones of Morehead City.
