Theatrical licensor Music Theatre International (MTI) created this revue for theatres across the globe to use as a local fundraising event performed over the same weekend of November 12, 2021.  SUU Opera’s performances are scheduled for November 12-13, 2021 at 7:30 p.m. in the Thorley Recital Hall of the SUU Music Building. Tickets are $10 for adults, $8 for alumni with card, and $5 for youth. SUU faculty/staff (and one guest) and students can attend for free with a valid ID card. Tickets can be purchased at the America First Event Center Box Office, at the door the night of the performance, or online at www.suu.edu/arts.

MTI’s President and CEO, Drew Cohen stated, “MTI’s All Together Now! is about bringing people back to the theatre, whether as audience members or cast, crew and musicians. The revue features songs from the world’s most iconic musicals, so there is definitely something for everyone to enjoy. Our goal with this worldwide event is for organizations to provide hope, inspiration and excitement to their communities through the transformative power of musical theatre.”  

All Together Now! features songs from MTI’s beloved catalogue of musicals including Annie, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Come From Away, Disney and Cameron Mackintosh’s Mary Poppins, Disney’s Beauty and the Beast, Fiddler on the Roof, Godspell, Guys and Dolls, Hairspray, Into the Woods, Les Misérables, Little Shop of Horrors, Mamma Mia!, Matilda, My Fair Lady, Once on This Island, Rent, Waitress, and many more! 

Mackenzie Williams, junior Music Major with an emphasis in vocal performance from Mesa, Arizona, shares, “We have been working on All Together Now! which is essentially a musical theatre review. We have songs such as ‘You Can't Stop the Beat’ from Hairspray, ‘Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious’ from Mary Poppins, ‘Matchmaker’ from Fiddler on the Roof, and so many more familiar and fun musical theatre songs. I have loved working with everyone in the cast, as most of the time we are just having fun while getting to perform these songs we grew up with. Everyone is working hard on their choreography, their voice parts, and acting, so that we can give a show the audience will adore!”

Williams continues, “I am very excited to see what the finished product will look like, but right now I am most excited that the cast has become fast friends with one another. I have loved working with all of my cast friends, and we can't wait to present this fabulous music to everyone! If you want a fun concert that will have lots of good musical theatre music spanning different shows then this is the show for you!”

Share in the joy of musical theatre globally with this weekend performance of All Together Now! on November 12-13, 2021 at 7:30 p.m. in the Thorley Recital Hall of the SUU Music Building. For more information about the Department of Music at SUU, Please visit www.suu.edu/pva/music.
