A group of Evangel University students are using their talents to benefit Weller Elementary.
“A Night on Broadway” will be performed on Friday and Saturday, 7 p.m. each night, at the Barnett Fire Arts Center on the Evangel University Campus.
Admission to the show will be a donation of winter clothing items, school and art supplies, or a $5 cover charge. All of the donated items and money will be given to Weller Elementary.
The concert, an entirely student-led event, is co-directed by Nathaniel Parrales and Noel Lutes.
“We will be performing about a dozen pieces featuring a variety of classics, as well as lesser-known songs, including Golden Age musicals such as South Pacific, the beloved Les Miserables, and the 2017 Tony Award-winning Come From Away,” Parrales, a junior musical theatre major for Dallas, Texas, said in a statement.
Lutes, who grew up in Kyiv, Ukraine, said that a part of the show is allowing performers with a diversity of backgrounds to show off their talents.
“We have a cast of 11 students from a diverse array of majors and musical backgrounds, and they all bring their unique gifts and talents to the table,” Lutes said in a statement.
The show is the second time students have performed a benefit show; last year’s show benefited Convoy of Hope and sold out both nights.
