On May 11 thru 13, Arts Enter and the Palace Theatre will present the musical Don’t Stop Believen’.
The Ethel Lampert Community Center has seen better days and may soon see its final days unless the teens, volunteers, and staff find a way to save it. Some sleazy town council members want to bulldoze the place to redevelop and commercialize the neighborhood and bring them gobs of sales tax revenue, but that’s not stopping the teens who frequent the community center. From basketball players to computer nerds to artists, these down-on-their-luck kids have no place else to go, and losing the center would mean losing their home away from home. When they hear of a new television reality contest for glee clubs, they decide to form their own and try out. If they win the top prize, they’ll earn enough money to keep the center open.
Featuring local favorites McKay Shockley, Allison Shockley (star of The Clam Digger’s Daughter), Forensics champ Connor Handwerk, Mel Stein and Christy Iverson, this talented cast brings the drama, fun, and comedy to life on the Palace Stage.
Set design and construction is by the brilliant Peter Helk, who recently did the work for Arsenic and Old Lace.
The show is bursting with large rock and pop chorus numbers and a powerful, anthemic finale, this energetic, contemporary musical will bring out the gleek in everyone!
