CCRI's Hello Broadway
It is with a good deal of deliberation that I share with you our decision NOT to produce “Hello Broadway!” this year, June 2020, at CCRI. We on the production staff came to this decision largely because of complications arising from Carol’s Lyme Disease. For those of you that do not know, Carol was officially diagnosed 5 years ago, however, doctors estimate that she has had it for a very long time. As a result, I strongly feel that we need to take some time to address healing with this very complicated disease.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart to ALL of you that either contributed your talents, time and energy OR were a faithful audience member/ donor. We have some wonderful memories of great shows that we shared over 11 years of performances! We couldn’t have done any of it without all of you. Let’s consider this a pause for now….
Last year's show featured the musical "The All Night Strut!" — a celebration of the swing music of the 1930s and 1940s.
Some of the songs include:
Chattanooga Choo Choo; Fascinatin' Rhythm; In the Mood; Brother Can You Spare a Dime; Operator; Java Jive; Ain't Misbehavin' .......and much more!
