GREENVILLE, S.C. (March 3, 2021) – Bob Jones University will present the musical A Tale of Two Cities on March 9, 12–13 at 7:30 p.m. in Rodeheaver Auditorium.
Based on Charles Dickens’ masterpiece, A Tale of Two Cities is a classic story about love, revolution and redemption. Composer and lyricist Jill Santoriello created the musical version of this important work that appeared on Broadway in 2008.
“Jill has been an invaluable partner with us during our preparation of the show,” said Dr. Darren Lawson, director of the production and dean of the BJU School of Fine Arts and Communication. “BJU is thrilled to be mounting this epic musical 13 years after its Broadway debut with members of the University community accompanying our guest performers.”
The composer said she is excited to see what Dr. Lawson has brought to the production. “I know he’s been working really hard on it for many months now,” Santoriello said. “Having a cast with a mix of professional and student actors will also be a treat.”
The 65-member cast which includes BJU students and staff will be accompanied by the BJU orchestra directed by Dr. Michael Moore. BJU is also pleased to feature guest artists Glenn Seven Allen, Patrick Dunn, Christopher Johnstone, Laura McCulloch, Tony Mowatt and Olivia Vadnais.
