A Georgia Baptist Institution
"Songs for a New World" Opens Friday, Sept. 26
The deck of a 1492 Spanish sailing ship will make the seamless transition this weekend into a modern-day apartment ledge high above the busy streets of Fifth Avenue, as the Shorter College Theatre Department presents “Songs for a New World.”
With music and lyrics written by Jason Robert Brown, the performance will transport the audience from the high seas to a bustling city high-rise to meet a startling array of characters ranging from a young man who has determined that basketball is his ticket out of the ghetto to a woman whose dream of marrying rich nabs her the man of her dreams in a soulless marriage.
“Songs for a New World” opens this Friday at Shorter’s Callaway Theatre, Sept. 26 with an additional performance on Saturday, both at 7:30 p.m. A matinee is planned Sunday at 2 p.m. Additional performance dates are scheduled for Oct. 2 -4, 7:30 p.m. and Oct. 5 at 2 p.m.
Admission is $12 and $8 for students and senior adults. For tickets, call the Shorter College box office at 706-233-7288.
