We Are ON BROADWAY! Concert Celebrating Penn State Theatre

After a sold-out performance last year, alumni from the Penn State School of Theatre return to State College for “We Are… ON BROADWAY!,” a one-night-only concert presented by School of Theatre alumni Mike Karns, Robert Schneider, and Carolyn Quinn, in association with current sophomore Alexander Baron, on Monday, January 16, at 7:00 p.m. at Schwab Auditorium. The evening will showcase the talents of four Penn State alumni who are now performing on Broadway and around the country, current Musical Theatre majors, and local middle and high school students. The evening is directed by Penn State’s Head of Musical Theatre John Simpkins, with music direction by School of Theatre Music Director Dan Riddle. Tickets start at $15 and are available via https://we-are-on-broadway.eventbrite.com. Proceeds benefit the School of Theatre’s Alumni Programs Group.

Featured performers will include Gilbert Bailey (currently featured in A Bronx Tale, also Book of Mormon on Broadway), Audrey Cardwell (Cinderella in Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Cinderella First National Tour), Jeremy Greenbaum (Newsies on Broadway), and Jodi Stevens (Jekyll & Hyde and Urban Cowboy on Broadway).

According to Mike Karns, Penn State consistently demonstrates that it has one of the elite theatre programs in the nation. “We’re always thrilled to be able to bring some of our illustrious alumni that are performing on Broadway back to State College for this concert.”

Senior Jessica Fleischman, who will serve as the production stage manager, said she is “thrilled” to collaborate on this concert. “As a graduating senior about to enter the theatre world professionally, I highly admire the talented and hard-working artists that Penn State continues to produce year after year. I’m excited to create a night that highlights both the past and present of Penn State’s School of Theatre.”
