Music is a part of our daily life. It helps us to relax our minds and lift our moods.

Seward County Community College brings “Broadway Revue” with some popular music choices from different shows. Current students, former students as well as a few veteran Rainbow Players from the community will take part in this musical event which will be held at the college on April 22-24 starting at 7 p.m.

Magda Silva, music instructor, said that the tickets will be free but must be picked up in advance due to limited seating. There will be 16 people in total taking part in the Broadway Revue. The performers have picked songs from popular shows like “Man of La Mancha,” “Next to Normal,” “Waitress,” “Mamma Mia” and many more. 

“The lineup of singers will 90 percent be the same in all three days of performance,” Silva said.

Timothy Smith, a Liberal teacher and one of the performers of the Broadway Revue said, “I am very excited for the show. I joined this semester and Magda picked me to perform in her show.”

Students and others were a little disappointed when their musical “Mamma Mia” was canceled last year when classes moved online and campus was closed due to COVID.

There are twelve students who are going to be performing in the Broadway Revue. The show will run from April 22-24 starting at 7 pm. The show will also be available to watch via Facebook Live.

“I was sad that we couldn’t do Mamma Mia, but I’m excited that we are able to do Broadway revue. I had this in my mind for a long time, but we took only three weeks to prepare the whole thing,” Silva said. 

Silva said the college couldn’t do a musical this year since it would take more time and involve more people. She added that due to COVID, having a lot of people in close contact is not acceptable as per COVID rules. So the next best option was to do this “Broadway revue.”

The three-day event will have choral and duets, as well as solo performances. It will also be broadcast live on the Humanities’ Facebook page. Since the in-person seating is only 45, people are asked to book their tickets in advance by calling Terri Barnes at the humanities building.
