The Cincinnati Enquirer
Footlights is back for 2004. The Cincinnati Enquirer's one-of-a-kind series that invites you behind-the-scenes to see local theaters and meet theater artists at downtown restaurants returns Feb. 15 with a can't-miss event.
In honor of its upcoming production of The Mystery of Edwin Drood, CCM musical theater students, including members of the Class of 2004 (you loved them in On the Town, The Boys from Syracuse,and the Wild Party), promise a special event to benefit the League of Cincinnati Theatres in the charming courtyard at Arnold's Bar & Grill.
For Footlights, they will offer songs from Drood, a sneak peek at the Senior Showcase they're taking to New York in April and lead the audience in a sing-along which will include, in the spirit of Drood, songs reminiscent of the occasionally naughty Victorian Music Hall-style. (Drood plays Feb. 26-March 7 at CCM).
They will also take host a Q&A with the audience, answering everything you've ever wanted to know about life on a Broadway track.
Mark 4:30 p.m. Feb. 15 on your calendar, CCM Music Hall at Arnold's Bar & Grill (210 E. Eighth St.) Tickets are $30 (show only) and tax deductible. Doors open at 4 p.m. Cash bar.
Call Arnold's at 421-6234 for reservations. You will be asked to hold your reservation with a credit card. To pay by check or for general questions, call Jackie Demaline at 768-8530.
