Featured Project: Singable Show Tunes: A Musical Revue

WINTER 2023: The main stage production for the Department of Theatre and Dance and the Department of Music for the spring semester of 2023 featured a revue with a line-up of Broadway and Off-Broadway tunes. Professor Tracey Laird, who served as the musical director for the show, and I developed the script, coached the students who performed, and staged the show. The production included numbers from soloists, duets, small groups, two of Agnes Scott’s choirs (Luchsingers and Collegiate Chorale), and a local theatre company for youth, Decatur Community Players. Professor Laird and I wrote the script for the show, which ran in the Winter Theatre in the Dana Fine Arts Building on the Agnes Scott campus in late February.

Toby Emert, Tracey Laird, and Amy Lovell perform “Crazy Bout Ya, Baby,” from the Off-Broadway hit Forever Plaid.
