A TROUPE of American teenagers will perform well known songs from Broadway musicials this Friday lunchtime in Siamsa Tire.

The internationally-recognized, Morningstar Performance Troupe for Youth are on a goodwill concert tour throughout Ireland and will be stopping off in Tralee for a lunchtime performance and cultural exchange with musical theatre students from Kerry.

The Sacramento, California-based group will perform its signature program “Broadway USA” which  includes high-energy song and dance routines from Broadway musicals, including performances of Newsies, Chicago, Oklahoma, South Pacific, All Shook Up, Hairspray, Rock of Ages, and Wicked.

Friendship Ambassador Foundation in New York initially contacted Bryan Carr who facilitated the event with the help of Siamsa Tire.

“As well as my own Stage School students we are inviting students from Oliver Hurley, Tim Landers, Geraldine O’Connor, Ann Flood along with Kerry School of Music students to attend the performance and the cultural exchange event immediately after the performance whereby young Musical Theatre and Glee teenagers from Kerry can sit and chat and exchange views with like-minded teenagers from California over Pizza and all for just €5,” said Bryan.

“No booking is necessary; just pay your €5 at the Box Office before the 1pm show in Siamsa next Friday and Musical Theatre students from all over Kerry will be guaranteed three hours of entertainment and cultural exchange fun with this fantastic USA company,” said Bryan.

Led by artistic director Ms. Kieri Coombs, the troupe was founded in 1979 by Mrs. Annette Hull and Mrs. Dagny Merrill as part of a school for performing arts in Los Altos, California.

Groups from Morningstar have performed around the world since 1979 with Friendship Ambassadors Foundation, Inc. including to Romania, Hungary, Czech Republic, England, Taiwan, Peru, Ecuador, Mexico, and many others.
