HANCEVILLE, Ala. — The Wallace State Singers are in rehearsals for their upcoming show “Broadway Baby! Music of the Great White Way” April 12-15 at the Burrow Center Recital Hall at Wallace State Community College.

Wallace State Singers Director Tiffany Richter describes the show as broad overview of the many famous songs sung by Broadway stars over the last century. “Packing in 100 years of music and trying to pick out the standouts was very tough,” said Richter. “But I tried to create a big picture of the evolution of Broadway across the decades.”

The two-act production is broken into a variety of genres, eras and tributes to Broadway. Act one starts with a Medley from Motown! The Musical, and also includes selection of songs from Broadway’s early years, the music of Rogers and Hammerstein, the golden years of Broadway and a West Side Story medley. Act two begins with a section called “Breaking New Ground on Broadway” and continues with medleys of songs from “Newsies,” “Les Miserables,” and “Hamilton,” before concluding with “No Good Deed” from “Wicked” and a medley of tunes for the finale: “The State of Broadway: A Revue.”

Shows will be held at 7 p.m., Thursday-Saturday, April 12-14, and 2 p.m., Sunday, April 15. Donations of $10 for adults and $5 for children under 10 will be accepted.
