“Broadway our way”

A musical journey through Broadway’s greatest hits Sept. 11-12

If you missed your chance earlier this year to see Broadway our way, featuring Cedar Springs resident Larry Young Jr., you now have another chance!

Actors’ Theatre and Creative Edge Productions are proud to present Broadway Our Way…a musical journey through Broadway’s greatest hits! This tribute will be a pre-season opening celebration for Actors’ Theatre and will feature over twenty of Broadway’s most memorable songs from smash hit shows like: Les Miserables, Phantom of the Opera, Wicked, Singing in the Rain, Annie Get Your Gun, The King and I, A Chorus Line, and many more!

Broadway Our Way stars award-winning actors: Kelly Carey, Cici Gramer, Stephen Grey, and Larry Young. This dazzling group is accompanied by a six-piece orchestra led by Wright McCargar.

Young is Managing Director of Creative Edge Productions, and has been working as a theatre professional for over 15 years. After obtaining a BA in Theatre from Hope College he has performed throughout the US as well as internationally (Vancouver, BC). He has shared the stage with Tony-Award winner Sutton Foster and has been a soloist at Carnegie Hall. He has won three Grand Awards for his performances as Dr. Parker in Bat Boy, Officer Lockstock in Urinetown and most recently Valentin in Kiss of the Spider Woman, all with Actors’ Theatre.

“I am thrilled to be able to help Actors’ Theatre kick off their 2009-2010 season with Creative Edge Productions’ presentation of Broadway our way,” said Young. “My first show with Actors’ Theatre was Floyd Collins in 2000 and I have been a faithful Actors’ Theatre performer throughout the past 9 years. I believe in their mission to bring entertaining, challenging and thought provoking theatre to the West Michigan area and am honored to be able to give back to a company that has given me the opportunity to continue to sharpen and challenge my acting skills.  Come join us for an entertaining evening celebrating the opening of another exciting Actors’ Theatre season.”
