After a successful showing in New York, TCU’s Department of Theatre will take the center stage for the last time this semester later this month to present a classic Broadway musical.

The department announced “42nd Street,” the Tony Award-winning musical, will take place from April 24 to April 28 in the W.E. Scott Theater, located at 3505 W. Lancaster Ave.

The musical will feature 30 cast members, which includes 6 students who were also a part of the department’s Senior Showcase in New York City.

This year, the annual Senior Showcase had 16 graduating seniors who performed for industry professionals at two famous New York City venues in March.

The showcase resulted in 20 immediate callbacks and nine auditions for Broadway and national tours for the tap-dancing students.

Which roughly relates to the storyline in “42nd Street”. First premiered in 1980, the musical depicts the story of a talented young girl who dreams of performing on Broadway in New York.

The classic musical will be produced with a fresh vision that demonstrates TCU’s reputation for excellence, Jennifer Engler, associate professor at TCU, said in a statement.

“This iconic show highlights for our students the importance of being a

triple threat,” Engler said. “At the heart of the production is the strength of the ensemble and the dream to step into the spotlight.”

The tickets for the show are on sale online at $15 per attendee.
