The Lee University Opera Theatre, directed by James Frost, will present its Musical Revue, “The Show Must Go On” on Sunday at 3 p.m. The performance will take place in the Dixon Center, along with being livestreamed.
“The Show Must Go On,” directed by Dr. ChoEun Lee, will feature Jason Robert Brown's “Hear My Song” from “Songs for a New World,” along with selections from “Company,” “Guys and Dolls,” and “Godspell.”
“I am so proud of what the students have accomplished for this Musical Revue,” said Professor Frost. “In my absence with COVID, the students have done everything to make this performance happen. They have worked really hard individually and in groups, and I know it will be a great Revue."
The Musical Revue will be accompanied by Rachel Appleton, music staff member, on piano.
Professor Frost is an associate professor of voice at Lee. He has performed in Germany as well as at various opera companies in the United States such as the Opera Theatre of St. Louis, the Boston Lyric Opera, the Kennedy Center’s Washington Opera Company, and the Central City Opera House Association in Colorado.
