Audiences will be treated to an energetic student-produced variety show at Eden Prairie High School’s (EPHS) “Broadway Extravaganza,” to be held at 7 p.m. on Thursday, June 1, and Friday, June 2, in the school’s Performing Arts Center.
Tickets are not required, but donations to support the drama program will be welcomed.
“Broadway Extravaganza” showcases student-choreographed musical dance numbers and is one of the school’s “no-cut” shows. Student producers ensure that everyone who wants to participate finds a spot. This year, over 70 students will take part in the production.
“Some students bring many years of dance experience to the show, and others are getting their first experience performing in a musical number,” said Laurie Nebeker, EPHS teacher and drama director. “The student choreographers teach and rehearse their dances over a period of a few weeks, and students are also responsible for planning the costumes and lighting effects they want for their numbers.”
“’Broadway’ is always a high-energy event and great way for our students to take their final bow for the year,” Nebeker said. For seniors, this will also be the final show of their high school drama careers.
