Instead of the traditional set-up of singers performing on stage, members of the Puyallup Concert and Chamber choirs will be stationed at a variety of places within the Arts and Allied Health Theater, choir director Ken Owen explained.
The spotlight will move from location to location as segments of the choirs perform. The audience will be asked to hold applause until the end of the concert.
The program, called “A Northwest Collage,” also offers a rare opportunity to hear an entire concert devoted to the work of Northwest composers.
This family-friendly musical tells the story of mad scientist Doctor Prospero, who’s unknowingly jettisoned into space with his infant daughter. Their craft crashes into D’Illyria, the Forbidden Planet, and the adventure begins.
Winner of the Olivier Award for Best Musical, the play by Bob Carlton is loosely based on the 1956 film, “Forbidden Planet,” which was a sci-fi version of William Shakespeare’s “The Tempest.”
The production features a 35-member cast of Pierce students and community members. A live, five-piece band directed by Nate Benson accompanies the cast as they belt out a raft of golden oldies, including “Good Vibrations” and “Born to be Wild.”
The questions aren’t meant to pry into students’ private lives. Instead, they are part of a student-driven, statewide commitment to make community and technical colleges welcoming to all students, regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identity.
Students aren’t required to answer the questions, and an individual student’s information will remain confidential, said Sonja Morgan, student life coordinator at Pierce College Puyallup.
In addition, four of the bands will offer mini-workshops.
The event will be at the college’s Puyallup campus. Tickets are just $10.
Artists scheduled to perform include: McTuff, Thomas Marriot Sextet (Tribute to Art Blakey), Greta Matassa quartet, Pierce College Jazz Ensemble and Pete Christlieb Quartet.
