Theatre Tuscaloosa is participating in the global fundraising event All Together Now!, arranged by licensing company Music Theatre International (MTI). Held on the weekend of November 12-14, this special concert performance is meant to help theatres across the globe get back on their feet following a year of being shut down.
MTI’s President and CEO, Drew Cohen stated, “MTI’s All Together Now! is about bringing people back to the theatre, whether as audience members, cast, crew, or musicians. The revue features songs from the world’s most iconic musicals, so there is definitely something for everyone to enjoy. Our goal with this worldwide event is for organizations to provide hope, inspiration, and excitement to their communities through the transformative power of musical theatre."
The Theatre Tuscaloosa cast includes Kazarious Brown, Ava Buchanan, Beth Feller, Royce Garrison, Lindsey Jones, Casey Kauffman, Josh Kauffman, Bradley Logan, Danielle Molina, Bethany Knight Peppers, Ray Taylor, Lisa Waldrop Shattuck, and John Walker. Songs that will be featured include “You Can’t Stop the Beat” from Hairspray, “Matchmaker” from Fiddler on the Roof, and “Seasons of Love” from Rent, along with 12 other familiar titles.
Director Ray Taylor said, “This is going to be an amazing evening celebrating musical theatre. We have assembled an all-star cast that will absolutely dazzle our audiences! It’s also a great way to support the art of live theatre in Tuscaloosa.”
