Musicals Go to the Movies

Festival Napa Valley joins with Napa Valley College (NVC) Performing Arts Department of Music to co-present Musicals Go To the Movies, a musical theater revue starring acclaimed Broadway performer Ryan Silverman in a special performance alongside Napa Valley College music students.

With noted Broadway choreographer Kim Craven, Silverman is Festival Napa Valley’s featured artist/educator in residence this spring, working with NVC students in a week-long intensive workshop as part of a college credit musical theater class led by Napa Valley College Coordinator of Music and Director of Vocal Studies, Dr. Christina Howell.

Tonight’s performance at the NVC Performing Arts Center is a culmination of that workshop and features movie musical favorites “Moon River” from Breakfast at Tiffany’s, “Y’a Got Trouble” from The Music Man, “Everybody Rejoice” from The Wiz, “Come Alive” from The Greatest Showman, “Your Song” from Moulin Rouge, “Gee, Officer Krupke” from West Side Story, and “I’ve Got Rhythm” from An American in Paris.

Tickets (Adults $15, Seniors $10, Students with ID - $0) on sale through the Napa Valley College Performing Arts box office, 707-256-7500.
