Apex Theatre Studio to present Fall Performance Showcase


Apex Theatre Studio will present its sixth annual Fall Performance Showcase at 7:30 p.m. Nov. 6 at Ponte Vedra Concert Hall.

The production features the talents of 50 young artists in a mixture of musical theater, improv and one-act comedies. Tickets are $20 for general admission and are on sale now at Ticketmaster.com.

“These young artists all share an affinity for the music of Disney,” said vocal director Isabel Dondero. “We decided it was a great time to explore all the Broadway shows which have come from the most magical place on Earth.”

Students from the musical theater workshop will perform numbers from a mixture of classic and contemporary Disney musicals, including “Coco,” “The Little Mermaid,” “Hercules” and “Tangled,” as well as two numbers from their upcoming holiday production of “Frozen Jr.”

The young actors workshop will perform two short one-act comedies: “The Blind Date” by Horton Foote and “Wiley and The Hairy Man” by Susan Zeder. Both shows are set in the South and take a unique look at the way small communities relate to one another.

“Mostly, they are just lots of fun and something families will enjoy,” said teaching artist Jeremy Williams, who is directing one play and appearing in the other one alongside students.

The teen improv troupe, Tomato Tomato, will create sketches based on suggestions from the audience.
