When the Albany State University Theatre Ensemble presented “A Piece of Broadway Our Way” on Oct. 5, the ACAD Auditorium overflowed with audience members. Those who saw the performance raved about it.
Now, because of great demand, the ASU Theatre Ensemble will present two encore performances of “A Piece of Broadway Our Way” at 3:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 31, in the ACAD Auditorium.
“A Piece of Broadway was a great success – so much of a success that I decided to present it again because of the numerous calls and emails,” said DeRon Williams, director and instructor in the Department of Fine Arts. “I really wanted to make sure that the faculty, staff, students and the community got a chance to experience the performance. Also, my students really wanted their family and friends to attend the performance. Many of them were unable to enter the venue because of a full house.”
“A Piece of Broadway Our Way” features members of the ASU Theatre Ensemble acting, singing and dancing in scenes from some of the most popular Broadway productions featuring African Americans, such as “Dream Girls,” “The Wiz,” “The Color Purple,” “Rent” and others.
Admission to the encore performances are free and open to the public. For more information, contact Williams at (229) 430-0504 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
