Musical theatre students stream live performance May 1 | Around The Town

Musical Theater

Students in the vocal studio of Dr. Grace Edgar, assistant professor of musical theater at Northwestern State University, and in the musical theatre performance class will live stream a performance full of laughter, love and inspiration beginning at 2 p.m. Friday, May 1.
Viewers are invited to watch the live performance at https://youtu.be/heYg-iJbmU8.
“From all over Louisiana and Texas, social distancing students in a WebEx meeting will take turns performing songs from musicals ranging from Carousel to Jesus Christ Superstar to Hamilton, Waitress and even Beetlejuice. The WebEx meeting will be live streaming on YouTube for our NSULA community, our families and our friends,” Edgar said.
Students and faculty in NSU’s School of Creative and Performing Arts have developed other innovative ways to share their talents, practice skills and inspire others during the current season of social distancing due to COVID-19.
Last week, the NSU Chamber Choir released a performance that was incorporated into a tribute to alumni who work in healthcare. That video can be viewed at https://vimeo.com/412807638/06921921cc.
The Department of Fine and Graphic Art initiated a Daily Art Challenge on Facebook. They will post a daily prompt to inspire a drawing, photograph, painting, poem or other medium. Viewers can post their creation and tag @NSULA_ART and #NSULAARTCHALLENGE. Anyone is welcome to participate.
