Musical Theatre Students Take Broadway to Homer

Musical Theatre Students Take Broadway to Homer


Musical theatre majors in SUNY Cortland’s Performing Arts Department are quite comfortable singing well-known selections from a Broadway musical repertoire to the willing ears of campus and community at College gala events.

Their performance on Saturday, Sept. 24, will have a new component — a gourmet dinner prepared by the Syracuse chapter of the American Culinary Federation — when they perform “A Taste of Broadway” for the Center for the Arts in Homer, N.Y.

The soon-to-be professionals will have an opportunity to test their talent in a community setting during the dinner and musical revue at 7 p.m. A cocktail hour will precede the performance at 6 p.m.

During the evening, guest professional chefs will prepare a four-course meal of primarily locally sourced food.

By joining the venture sponsored by Hage Real Estate, the students are trying something new in terms of civic engagement, said Jeffrey Whetstone, the Performing Arts Department’s new production manager and publicity coordinator.

“The community will hear our seasoned veteran performers as well as our young, rising stars,” Whetstone noted. “I’m sure they’ll deliver a very entertaining evening.”
