The event is scheduled to run April 23, 24, and 25 at the Grand County High School auditorium, 608 South 400 East.
The program features singing and dancing performances by adults and children and includes a variety of tunes from popular Broadway musicals, including “Cats,” “Phantom of the Opera,” “My Fair Lady,” “Oklahoma,” “Bye Bye Birdie,” “Annie Get Your Gun,” “The Sound of Music,” “Rent,” “West Side Story,” and several others.
“It’s going to be a wonderful and entertaining evening,” said Bonnie Nielson, who said she spearheaded the event as a way to help give members of the community a chance to show off their talents.
“The show is filled with amazing songs from the best of Broadway musicals, past and present,” Nielson said, adding that the scheduled numbers include solo, duet, small group, and large ensemble pieces. Performers include adults, teenagers, and children as young as 7.
Nielson and co-organizer Maralee Francis have been working with the performers in regular rehearsals since auditions were first held a month or so ago. Nielson and Francis said they hope the Broadway show will prove popular enough to become an annual event in Moab.
Admission is $8 for adults, $5 for students and senior citizens. Tickets may be purchased at the gate. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. each evening, with warm-up music by the GCHS jazz band; the show begins at 7 p.m.
“A Grand Night for Singing” is a fundraiser for the GCHS music and theater departments.
