South Shore Orchestra, Carnegie Arts Center and South Shore Dance Alliance bring the first ever community theatre production to China!
Rhapsody in Swing! is the title we have selected and all three organizations, our cast, crew and orchestra working on fundraising. We have sent a letter and we are now seeking more sponsorship. First let me tell you more about the show, cast, production team etc.
Rhapsody in Swing! is an exciting musical performance that uses Rhapsody in Blue as a musical theme to connect nearly 30 great songs from the American Swing & Standards songbook. Songs like - Jump, Jive & Wail, In my Solitude, LIttle Brown Jug, It's De'Lovely, String of Pearls and many more. We told you about our amazing cast in the video and our production team is also terrific. Our production team is putting together a great looking experience to add to the great sound we already have. With traveling to China - much of the set may be partially created over there, then assembled when we arrive. Challenging - yes? Bet we feel confident we have a team who can pull it off. Lighting designs we hope can be created digitally and then uploaded when we arrive. Costumes we will have to bring with us. We are now traveling to three different theatres in three different cities - it will a job to get it all done - but if you know anything about theatre and theatre people - you know that we will make it happen. We need your help to get there.
We are also presenting a special preview night of the show before we leave. This will be held at South Shore Dance Alliance. Proceeds from that night will also benefit the project of course!
South Shore Orchestra, Carnegie Arts Center and South Shore Dance Alliance are certain that in addition to support from The Confucius Institute, our letter campaign, our benefit performance and help from you on Kickstarter we can make history for the community theatre world! Don't you want to help make that happen? We hope you do!
