Outreach Concerts

OUTREACH CONCERTS

Four Seasons Theatre brings musical theatre entertainment out into the community—and we sneak in some education, too! Our community outreach programming brings some of the best local singers into a variety of venues, armed with Broadway music and the stories of the composers, lyricists, playwrights, and artists who create it. Each year our outreach performers visit senior centers, libraries, schools, retirement communities...you name it, we’ve probably schlepped a keyboard there and performed. We bring live musical theatre to those who might not otherwise have a chance to engage with it—and we help our performing artists at the same time, both with financial support and with a chance to work new material into their repertoire.

COMMUNITY OUTREACH

Starting in March 2018, we bring the next in our Best of Broadway series to area retirement communities, civic organizations, schools, and senior centers: The Best of Broadway: Stephen Sondheim. This program features Sondheim songs from his start as a lyricist in such classic shows as Gypsy and West Side Story to his revolutionary shows like Company, Sweeney Todd, Sunday in the Park with George, and Into the Woods.
