The group was preparing “Broadway Bound” when the pandemic began in 2020, forcing the cancellation of live concerts until last year. Upscale Singers returned to the stage for two well-attended Christmas concerts and now the singers finally get to share the fun music and choreography of their spring shows.
“We are an eager group,” Director Margaret Watson says. “We wanted to perform this show two years ago, and now we’re able to. It was fun two years ago and it’s even more fun now.”
The music selection will be particularly fun for the audience, according to Watson. People young and old are familiar with Disney favorites “Beauty and the Beast” and “Aladdin,” for example.
“Young people are going to love this show because they grew up on that music watching it on the animated film versions,” she says. “There are a couple of generations here that grew up on that music and it’s great music.”
