Alumni return for “One Night on Broadway”
Penn State School of Theatre alumni who have graced “The Great White Way” returned to campus on May 16 for “One Night on Broadway,” a special performance benefitting Penn State Centre Stage and the School of Theatre.
The event at the Penn State Downtown Theatre Center was directed by Robert W. Schneider (’09 M.F.A. Theatre) and music directed by Jordon Cunningham (’20 M.F.A. Theatre). The show featured Penn State Musical Theatre alumni Maria Wirries (“Dear Evan Hansen”), J. Savage (“Seesaw”), Nathan Lucrezio (“Diana”), Turner Riley (“Beyond the Binary”), Jamila Sabares-Klemm (“Baby”) and Alan Wiggins (“Paradise Square”).
Each performer recreated a song they sang while at Penn State and sang a song from one of the current Broadway shows they are working on, while reminiscing about their time at Penn State and sharing their experiences as professional performers.
