Montclair High School School of Visual and Performing Arts (SVPA) presents Showcase 2014: Rockin’ Out, a rock musical revue beginning this weekend!
Director Corey Rubel said the concept of a rock revue came to him, given the recent rise of rock musicals. SVPA had never done a rock show and he thought Showcase 2014: Rockin’ Out was a chance to do something different. The show has the feel of a rock concert and he has pushed his actors to explore what it is to be a rock star. Rubel has focused the first half of the show on the theatricality of rock music and the stories it tells, with a lot of upbeat songs and full company dance numbers. The second act focuses on the emotional content of rock music. Audiences can expect a ballad or two.
