This year’s musical to be presented by Newman University’s Music Department is Curtain Up. The show is about two “wannabe” producers envisioning the shows they plan to produce. Curtain Up will be presented at 7:30 p.m. on April 29, 30, and May 1 in the Performance Hall inside the De Mattias Fine Arts Center.
The play offers a backstage look at the week preceding the opening night of a show. Curtain Up includes a mixture of songs from Broadway classics and shows currently running in the Big Apple. Tickets are $8 for adults and $5 for college-age students and below. Tickets can be purchased at the door the evening of the show. The doors will open 30 minutes prior to each performance.
