NWU Production "Applause! Applause" Features Musical Theatre Favorites
Nebraska Wesleyan University’s Theatre Department is planning an evening of musical theatre favorites for its upcoming musical, Applause! Applause!
The show is a lively musical revue ranging from operettas to present day. Part one features music from the late 19th century to 1968, while part two features a count down of the 38 longest running Broadway musicals.
Nebraska Wesleyan’s Applause! Applause! production grew in popularity four years ago with its Broadway theme.
Special late-night shows have been scheduled for mature audiences and will feature some censorable songs that are also a major part of musical theatre history.
Performances will be held October 29-31 and November 5-7 at 7:30 p.m. Matinee shows will be held on November 1 and November 8 at 2 p.m. Late-night shows will be held October 30-31 and November 6-7 at 10 p.m. All shows will be held in McDonald Theatre.
Admission is $15 for adults, $10 for students 12-18 years and senior citizens, and $7.50 for children under 12 years. Admission is free for Nebraska Wesleyan employees and students. To reserve tickets, call the theatre box office at 402.465.2384.
