SPC Brings Music to the Summer with The World Goes ‘Round

Tech crew and actors work on production

This summer, St Petersburg College‘s Theater Department is presenting the musical revue, The World Goes ‘Round, a very exciting production of the music of the famous duo of John Kander and Fred Ebb, who have written such classic musicals as Chicago, Cabaret and Steel Pier. Songs from these musicals will be featured in this great evening of musical theater entertainment.

These composers have also combined their talents with such famous singers as Barbara Streisand, Liza Minelli and Frank Sinatra, and many of songs written for these talents are also part of the production.

An acting company of 11 talented high school and college students, in combination with 14 technical theater students, will rehearse, build and light this production in four weeks as part of the college’s Summer Theater Program. All is going very well in the Arts Auditorium with the rehearsals and technical theater, as the crew hit the ground running last week. The actors are very excited to be back on a stage again, and we are thrilled to bring back our summer musical after a hiatus last summer.

This production is directed by myself, Scott Cooper, with musical direction by Latoya McCormick and choreography by Lyla Menkhaus.

Some of our past award-winning summer musicals are PIPPIN (Broadwayworld.com Top 10 production in Tampa Bay 2019) and URINETOWN (Broadwayworld.com Top 10 production in Tampa Bay 2018).

There will be three performances of this show:

  • July 9 at 7 p.m.
  • July 10 at 7 p.m.
  • July 11 at 2 p.m.

There is limited seating of 200 people per performance due to social distancing, so please reserve your seat ahead of time. A suggested donation of $15 will be gladly accepted at the door. This production is free for SPC students, faculty, and staff.

We hope to see you in the theater!
