IU's Broadway Cabaret Show to perform in Evansville
"Moveable Feast of the Arts" takes the show on the road
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
April 24, 2006
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. -- The "Moveable Feast of the Arts" is traveling once again to showcase Indiana University Bloomington's most talented student performers. IU's Broadway Cabaret will perform at the Executive Inn's Crystal Room in Evansville on April 25 at 7:30 p.m. The performance is free and open to the public.
This outstanding group of musical theatre students will perform numbers from musicals past and present in a wonderful evening of song and dance.
"This is a delightful evening of musical theatre scenes and songs performed by an extremely talented group of students," said Jonathan Michaelsen, chairperson of IU Bloomington's Department of Theatre and Drama and producer of the Brown County Playhouse. "IU's Broadway Cabaret has performed across Indiana, and many of the performers from this group were seen in the Department of Theatre and Drama's New York Showcase."
Indiana University's Moveable Feast of the Arts program, funded by the Lilly Endowment, is designed to showcase the university's cultural resources to IU campuses and communities across the state. The moveable feast kicked off last fall with a well-received performance in South Bend by the IU Philharmonic Orchestra. In January, the IU Jacobs School of Music's University Singers headed north to Indianapolis and Lafayette where they performed a new version of Mozart's "Mass in C Minor."
IU Interim Provost Michael McRobbie has encouraged faculty and students in the fine and performing arts and in the humanities to conceptualize similar outreach programs as part of the moveable feast.
"IU Bloomington has a rich tradition in the arts and humanities," McRobbie said. "Through the generous support from the Lilly Endowment, we are able to move beyond some of the geographical constraints of the Bloomington campus and share these traditions more broadly with others throughout the state."
