Please choose your ticket level:
$5 : If every person pays this amount, we will cover the cost of approximately 7 students' tickets to a Broadway show.
$10: If every person pays this amount, we will cover the cost of a Master Class while we are in the city!
$20: If every person pays this amount, we will cover the cost of approximately half of our student tickets to a Broadway show, and the rental of studio space in the city!
$Other Amount: We are so grateful for any additional amount you would like to give! Every dollar will go toward transportation, tickets, studio space, and master class artist(s).

Book and Lyrics by Chad Beguelin
Book  by Bob Martin
Music by Mathew Sklar

Four eccentric Broadway stars are in desperate need of a new stage. So when they hear that trouble is brewing around a small-town prom, they know that it’s time to put a spotlight on the issue…and themselves. The town’s parents want to keep the high school dance on the straight and narrow—but when one student just wants to bring her girlfriend to prom, the entire town has a date with destiny. On a mission to transform lives, Broadway’s brassiest join forces with a courageous girl and the town’s citizens and the result is love that brings them all together.

Wedding Band

Wedding Band Black Box Theater

Tickets: $15 Adult, $5 Students/Seniors

Written By Alice Childress

Set in the deep south at the end of World War I during the flu epidemic, Alice Childress’s seldom-produced masterpiece is one of American drama’s most mercilessly revealing tales of interracial love. A jewel of theatrical concision and detail, the play traces a devoted couple’s caustic confrontations with anti-miscegenation laws, vicious family racism, community disapproval and finally deadly disease and their own long-buried feelings. Wedding Band, written in the heat of the Civil Rights era, speaks with stunning clarity to the public debates of the Black Lives Matter era.
