Brooklyn, the Musical!

Mary Jeanne Hellings reported to Historic City News that the St. Johns County Center for the Arts at Murray Middle School will present Brooklyn, the Musical! by Mark Schoenfeld & Barrie McPherson.

The Murray Players tackle this Broadway tour de force and present a powerful and mature performance unexpected from a middle school ensemble.

With a mix of pop and soul a band of street-corner singers and storytellers set their stage in the shadow of the Brooklyn Bridge and tell a magical story: a gritty sidewalk fairy tale about a young girl searching for the father she never knew.

With just one clue to lead her she lands in the city that bears her name . . . Brooklyn.

These storytellers take us from Paris to New York to war-torn Vietnam and back again, all without leaving their Brooklyn street corner.

Under the direction of JoAnn Kirby-Nance with Curtis Powell as Musical Director, these young performers belt out such hits as Heart Behind These Hands; Once Upon A Time and Brooklyn in the Blood.

Performances are scheduled for Friday, November 6th and Saturday, November 7th, at 7:00 p.m. in the Murray Performing Arts Auditorium located at 150 N. Holmes Blvd. in St. Augustine, FL

Tickets are $7 for Adults and $4 for students.

For more information please contact JoAnn Kirby-Nance at Murray Middle School 904-547-8470.
