TLT brings broadway music to TFAC stage

Published 10:00 pm Monday, February 27, 2017

The Tryon Little Theater (TLT) is bringing an array of Broadway showstoppers to the Tryon Fine Arts Center (TFAC) stage Saturday, March 11. Music from outstanding shows TLT isn’t likely to produce due to their size, technical requirements, story-line, or because they haven’t yet been released for regional troupes to perform.

No, TLT will not be staging such shows as “Hamilton” any time soon, nor “Miss Saigon” and landing a helicopter onstage, nor “Sweeny Todd” with its Demon Barber of Fleet Street, nor “Next to Normal” with its convoluted relationships and intricate music, nor “Spring Awakening,” on and on . . . .

So the next best thing: an evening of Broadway songs performed by the pros and near pros who continue to grace the TLT stage. And to make this fundraising evening even more special, hors d’oeuvres and drinks will be served in the TFAC lobby at 7 p.m., followed by the show starting at 8 p.m.  Then after the performance, the audience is invited to enjoy dessert while mingling with the cast.
