Lee University’s Opera Theatre will present its fall Musical Revue, comprising various scenes from well-known and lesser known musicals, on Sunday at 3 p.m. in the Squires Recital Hall. 

The program will include scenes from “Fiddler on the Roof,” “Little Women,” “Company,” “Into the Woods,” “The Color Purple,” “Guys and Dolls,” and more. The scenes will be presented in a workshop environment with minimal set pieces and costumes. 

“What I really like about the scenes program is that it is a good opportunity for the students to use their imagination to come up with their own staging, costumes, and set pieces for their individual scenes,” said James Frost, artistic director of the program and associate professor of voice. “To see these young students grow as solo performers is very exciting.” 

Opera Theatre, directed by Frost, began in the spring of 1998 as a workshop and has grown into a production organization performing a musical revue in the fall semester, a fully-staged opera from both standard and less traditional repertoire in February, and an opera scenes program in the spring semester. 

The performance is free, non-ticketed, and open to the public. 

For more information about the Revue or Lee’s Opera Theatre, contact Mr. Frost at jfrost@leeuniversity.edu.
