Special Musical Revue To Be Performed at Saratoga Springs City Music Hall
SARATOGA SPRINGS – A fundraising event celebrating the return of live theater, entitled All Together Now: A Global Event Celebrating Local Theater, will be performed by a 12-member Home Made Theater cast at Saratoga Springs City Music Hall on Friday, November 12 and Saturday, November 13 at 7:30pm.
Under the auspices of the award-winning company’s Youth Musical Theater Conservatory, a cast of two boys and ten girls, ages 12-19-years-old, will perform some of the Great White Way’s most beloved musical songs and production numbers.
Music Theater International (MTI), the theatrical licensing agency headquartered in New York City, is waiving royalty and licensing rights to many of the iconic musical shows it represents in order for the show to be produced. Rightsholders and authors who have agreed to donate their fees so the special revue can be staged include Tony and Oscar-winning composer Alan Menken (Beauty and the Beast), Bobby and Kristin Anderson-Lopez (Frozen) and the legendary Stephen Sondheim (West Side Story).
In a statement, Drew Cohen, Chief Executive Officer at MTI Worldwide, said that “theater is about community, and these authors are doing their part to reignite in-person theater at all levels.”
It is a sentiment shared by Laurie Larson, who is directing All Together Now for Home Made Theater. “Our finale for the show is “You Can’t Stop the Beat” from Hairspray,” said Larson who, along with Susan Turner of Saratoga Arts, has run Home Made Theater’s Youth Conservatory for two decades. “I think about these gifted kids who could not do their school’s shows as well as the Youth Conservatory for two years. But even with the obstacles in front of them, nothing will stop their love for theater. Nothing will stop the beat in them!”
All Together Now will be performed just twice, on Friday, November 12 and Saturday, November 13, at Saratoga City Music Hall, which is located at 474 Broadway in Saratoga Springs. Located on the third floor of Saratoga’s City Hall, the newly renovated Music Hall is accessible by elevator and has a large open room with hard wood floors, cathedral windows and a large built-in stage.
