When: Fri., Sept. 9 2011
Sick of getting scoffed at while rocking out with your iPod? Then tonight's Big Broadway Sing-Along at Lorain County Community College's Stocker Arts Center is your chance to shine — or at least to shamelessly belt out those big musical faves along with 150 other would-be warblers. Chorus director Bill Rudman and pianist Nancy Maier will be leading tonight's audience through two dozen popular Broadway tunes. And if your pitch slips a bit on "Over the Rainbow" (it's a tough one), all those other voices will be there to drown you out. "This is the first time we've tried this, but it should be a very affirming experience for everyone," says Rudman. "If you don't want to sing, that's OK too; you'll still get a kick out of listening." Tonight's tunes begin at 8 p.m.; the show repeats tomorrow at the same time. Tickets are $15 for adults and $10 for kids 12 and under, which also gets you lyric sheets for 30 songs. Order by phone, online, or in person at the box office. The event marks the kickoff of the 2011-2012 Studio Theatre Cabaret season. — Barnes 1005 North Abbe Rd., Elyria, 440-366-4040, stockerartscenter.com.
