Musical revue ‘Altogether Now!’ coming to the Manluk Theatre

A global event celebrating local theatre

This weekend, Manluk Theatre for the Performing Arts will be joining over 2,500 theatrical organizations in a live performance that spans North America.

The group will be participating in their own local production of Music Theatre International’s “All Together Now!: A Global Event Celebrating Local Theatre.”

MTI’s All Together Now! is designed as a fundraiser established by theatrical licensor Music Theatre International (MTI), for local theatres in communities around the world to perform live, over the same four days in November.

MTI’s All Together Now! is about bringing people back to the theatre, whether as audience members or cast, crew and musicians. The revue features songs from the world’s most iconic musicals, so there is definitely something for everyone to enjoy. Our goal with this worldwide event is for organizations to provide hope, inspiration and excitement to their communities through the trans-formative power of musical theatre,” said MTI’s President and CEO, Drew Cohen in a press release.

Currently, there are over 40 countries and 5,500 individual performances scheduled to be seen by over one million audience members this upcoming weekend.

“We are incredibly excited to celebrate the return of live theatre with performances of MTI’s All Together Now! There were countless different directions I could have taken during the production process; flashy costumes, fancy footwork, but when I thought about our performance space, The Manluk Theatre and how it has such an intimate energy to it, I felt the best way to go was to focus on that intimacy. Our production has been stripped back to the music and the magic of the voices of our chorus and soloists. I couldn’t imagine a better way to showcase our incredible local talents,” said Waterworks Players’ director Mackenzie Fisher-Bach.

Performances are scheduled throughout the weekend starting on Friday, Nov. 12 at 7 p.m., on Saturday, Nov. 13, at 2 p.m. and Sunday, Nov. 14 at 2 p.m.

Ticket prices for the show at Manluk Theatre for the Performing Arts are by donations and can be reserved using the online ticketing service at Manluk Theatre for the Performing Arts.
