This March Anna will be jeté-ing into Rodgers and Hammerstein’s famous Showboat, working alongside the amazing the Gulf Coast Symphony Orchestra and the Broadway Palm Theatre Company. The concerts will be held at the iconic Babara B. Mann Performance Art Hall. Get your tickets soon! It’s gonna be great!
*Show Boat will be fully staged with costumes, sets and choreography, and performed with full symphony orchestra. Show Boat follows the lives of the performers, stagehands and dock workers on the Cotton Blossom, a Mississippi River show boat, over 40 years from 1887 to 1927. Its themes include racial prejudice and tragic, enduring love. This show was the first time that serious black and white characters held the stage on Broadway together as equals. The musical contributed such classic songs as "Ol' Man River", "Make Believe", and "Can't Help Lovin' Dat Man".
