Broadway Bound a Hit, Modern Mayem Coming Soon!


By Wendy Pollitzer

The University of South Carolina Beaufort recently presented the Broadway-style musical revue, What Color is Your Dream? The musical was the culmination of a week’s worth of rehearsals during the Performing Arts Center’s Summer Camp, Broadway Bound and included 33 talented young actors singing, dancing and acting their way through popular songs like, ‘Over the Rainbow’ from Wizard of Oz, ‘Rainbow Connection’ from the Muppet Movie and ‘You Gotta Have Heart’ from Damn Yankees!

The revue featured 10 scenes produced by Jennifer Shand, Director/Choreographer; Kristin Brady, Music Director; KC Newcomb, Technical Director; Danielle White, Assistant Choreographer; and Eliott Chucta, Assistant Music Director. A special thanks also goes to Jordan Culver from the Arts Council of Beaufort County and Bonnie Hargrove from USCB. In addition, a handful of ‘Lunch Moms’ helped with the week-long camp.

Another great camp is coming July 19th. Modern Mayhem, the Writing of a Pop/Rock Musical will be performed as the finale of a two-week intensive Theatre Arts Camp presented by Beaufort Children’s Theatre and USCB Performing Arts Center.

Students will have the opportunity to stretch their imaginations while working together to create an original pop/rock musical. Students will write the script using music from contemporary artists such as John Mayer, Breaking Benjamin, Jay-Z, Taylor Swift, Black Eyed Peas, Tim McGraw, Jason Darulo, Rascal Flatts, Three Days Grace and more!

The camp will be for young adults, ages 12-18 and will run from July 19th through July 30th. Camp will be held from 10am to 3:30pm. The registration fee is $250. Enrollment is limited, and the deadline to register is July 10th. You may call the USCB box office at (843) 521-4145 or email bhargrove@uscb.edu to register.
