Broadway's Adam Pascal comes to the Coal City Performing Arts Center for a Special Performance with Coal City Theatre Department students and students from Bradley Bourbonnais HS, Morris Community HS, and Dwight HS!

Coal City Theatre Department and the Megan Bugg Concert Series are excited to present ‘A Night on Broadway’ Showcase, featuring Tony Award-nominee Adam Pascal November 21, 2019 at 7 p.m., at the Coal City Performing Arts Center: 655 W Division St, Coal City, IL 60416. Featuring musical accompaniment by Kate Hausken.

Pascal will spend the day working one-on-one with theatre students from across the area, providing educational insight and personal feedback in a master class format.

The day will culminate with an open-to-the-public Student Showcase with special guest Pascal performing a few numbers from his past Broadway shows. It will also feature a special duet with Coal City HS junior, Riley Nevin, who will be playing Radames, a role Pascal originated on Broadway, in the Illinois HS All State Production of  ‘Aida.’ The concert will conclude with a moving tribute performance you won't want to miss!
