Twelve of Austin's top musical theatre performers will perform music from more than twenty Broadway musicals in Broadway at Bachus, benefiting the music education programs at the Bachus Center. Conceived by - and under the musical direction of - David Blackburn, with stage direction by Barbara Schuler and musical staging by Michelle Stuckey, a two-night revue will play April 9th and 10th at the Bachus Center for the Performing Arts.

Hosted by Robert Josef Cross, Broadway at Bachus features the music of Stephen Sondheim, Stephen Schwartz, Jason Robert Brown and other award-winning composers - performed by Eve Alonzo, Kylie Baker, Matthew Charles Burnett, Ashley Edwards, Jonathan Itchon, Stephen Jack, Becky Knox, Joel Mercado-See, Alejandro Rodriguez, Cathie Sheridan and Ryan Smith. The cast and musicians of the production have performed at nearly every theatre venue in the Austin area, as well as major cities across the United States and national touring companies.

Broadway at Bachus benefits the Bachus Center, a new non-profit organization that funds programs and scholarships to bring the arts to Central Texans who have limited or no access to instruments, lessons, and performance opportunities. Event organizers say the Bachus Center programs have become even more vital to the education of Austin's youth as many fine arts programs are being scaled back or even eliminated in the public schools.

Seating is limited, and the program contains some material that may not be appropriate for children.

  1. The phone number above should read 454-2533, not 2355. The letters are correct, but the numbers are wrong.
