CF Musical Theatre Ensemble Presents 'Songs for a New World'
April 2, 2014
The College of Central Florida Musical Theatre Ensemble presents “Songs for a New World” at 7:30 p.m. April 11-12, and 3 p.m. April 13, in the Charles R. Dassance Fine Arts Center at the CF Ocala Campus, 3001 S.W. College Road.
“Songs for a New World,” written and composed by Jason Robert Brown, transports the audience from the deck of a 1492 Spanish sailing ship to a ledge 57 stories above New York City’s Fifth Avenue to meet a startling array of characters ranging from a pair of lovers who are trying to salvage a doomed relationship to a woman whose dream of marrying rich nabs her the man of her dreams and a soulless marriage.
“This is a powerful show with a huge range of emotion,” said Matthew Bumbach, assistant professor of Visual and Performing Arts. “The audience will be drawn into the many different stories as they weave a beautiful tapestry of song.”
Tickets are $12 for adults and $6 for students, and free for CF students, faculty and staff with CF ID. To purchase tickets, call the CF Box Office at 352-873-5810 or visit tickets.cf.edu.
