The performances are set for April 8 at 8 p.m. and April 9 at 2 p.m. Tickets will be available in the Kimbrough Music Building lobby April 6 – 8 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. They will also be available at the door an hour and a half before curtain.

Songs include “Big Spender,” “There’s Gotta Be Something Better than This,” and “If My Friends Could See Me Now.”

The cast consists of 30 singer/actors, directed by stage and musical director Julie Anne Wieck. The music will be performed by 27 members of the WSU Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Nick Wallin. Sara Stricherz, a senior music education student, choreographed many of the dance scenes.
