Endstation Theatre Company will present its third annual Broadway in the Blue Ridge fundraiser concert at 8 p.m. Sunday, May 26, in Murchison Lane Auditorium at Sweet Briar’s Babcock Fine Arts Center. The concert features three Lynchburg natives, Abby Baum, Paul Fitzgerald and Perry Payne Millner, appearing with the casts of “Violet” and “Taming of the Shrew,” two of the shows in Endstation’s 2013 Blue Ridge Summer Theatre Festival lineup.
In addition to a sneak peak into the festival’s upcoming productions, the evening will include performances of beloved songs from Broadway hits such as “In the Heights,” “Jersey Boys,” “Gypsy,” “Follies” and many more.
Baum recently appeared in the international tour of “Cinderella” with Lea Salonga. This spring she directed “The Children’s Hour” at E.C. Glass High School.
Fitzgerald is a film director, playwright, screenwriter and actor whose work has been featured on HBO, at the Sundance Film Festival and on FX.
Millner was a New York-based actress and singer for 20 years. She is now the creative director at the Paramount Theater in Charlottesville.
A portion of the concert’s proceeds will be designated to Endstation’s high school educational outreach. Tickets are $15 for adults and $7 for students. For more information, visit endstationtheatre.org or call (434) 826-0391.
