Broadway Goes to the Movies!
The Fairfield County Children’s Choir will present its annual Broadway review on Saturday, February 10, 2024 at 7:00 PM at The Klein Memorial Auditorium in Bridgeport, preceded by a Cocktail Hour and Silent Auction fundraiser, beginning at 6:00 PM.
Broadway Goes to the Movies! will feature selections from shows that were originally inspired by literature (William Shakespeare’s Hamlet and Hans Christian Anderson’s The Little Mermaid) and in recent decades were made into animated films before making their way to the Broadway stage.
Medleys from The Lion King and The Little Mermaid will be featured along with For Good from Wicked, marking the show’s 20th Anniversary on Broadway and Found/Tonight, a mash-up single of two popular musical theater tracks from Hamilton and Dear Evan Hansen. The song’s lyrics and melodies are borrowed from The Story of Tonight from Hamilton, and You Will Be Found from Dear Evan Hansen. Other favorite songs will include Circle of Life, He Lives in You, Hakuna Matata, Can You Feel the Love Tonight, Part of Your World and Under the Sea.
In addition to rousing choruses, our amazing soloists will step into the spotlight to add their unique interpretations of the songs we all love. The fantastic FCCC orchestra will join us on stage and add its own pizzazz to this not-to-be-missed evening of story and song!
The Silent Auction will feature Diamond earrings, a Vermont getaway, All-Clad cookware, and offerings from many local businesses like The Two Oh Three, Park City Music Hall, Colony Pizza and Walrus Alley. Join us in person for specialty cocktails and live-only raffle prizes, including our coveted wine wall, or bid online at Givebutter.com/c/FCCC!
The FCCC has shared the stage with Stephen Schwartz, the composer of Godspell, Pippin and The Prince of Egypt, and Charles Strouse, the composer of Annie and Bye Bye Birdie, as well as Broadway stars Ivan Rutherford, Michelle Mallardi and Christopher Plummer. The choir has also performed at storied venues such as Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, Tanglewood, and Madison Square Garden, and toured both domestically (e.g. New Orleans, San Francisco, Hawaii, and Colorado) and internationally (e.g. Ireland, England, Canada, Austria and the Czech Republic). In 2018 the choir received two first place awards at the Golden Gate International Choral Festival in California.
