Excitement is Building for our March 18 Fundraiser!
“Role Players Ensemble presents a one night only opportunity to discover the secrets that have kept audiences endlessly entertained by the best of Broadway musicals.” Jody Morgan, Danville Today News, March 2017
Our Author and Narrator, Gary DeAtley, will explain how each song is written not just to entertain, but to develop character, theme and plot, and then each song is carefully placed in the proper sequence to “build” the musical’s dramatic and emotional impact.
Rehearsing (L to R): Sarah Sloan, James Koponen, Megan Stetson, Robert Brewer, Tom Segal, Lindsay Levin, Charles Woodson Parker (Photo by Marian Bliss)
