Roxy’s Salute to Broadway takes stage April 28-30, May 1

“The Roxy’s Salute to Broadway,” a new production written and directed by Russellville’s Hillary Malone Hall, will storm onto the scene April 28 through May 1 at downtown Russellville’s Historic Roxy Theatre.

Consisting of 95 cast members of all ages, the show will pay tribute to many Broadway hits spanning the decades.

“We can’t wait for everyone to see this show,” said Hall. “It’s got a lot of energy and memorable costumes. It features rousing, award-winning music and dance numbers. We’ve been working really hard to get ready for this and having a lot of fun along the way.”

The show features live musical performances by Tara Greenhill, Addyson Farris, Maddie Mouser, Kelly Baker, Simmie Grace Grimes, Zy Traywick, Jonathan Grimes, Elijah Racz, Dustin King, Amanda Mouser, Aleya Lane, Kandi Parker, Abigail King, Lydia Racz, Keylee Mayfield, Eli Mouser, Tucker King and Josh Lopez.

Kaylee Brannon – who, along with Hall, is working on the choreography – said she loves that the show includes a diverse range of ages and a variety of talents and experience levels.

“I’m so excited about this production, and I think the community will be, too, when they see it for themselves,” Brannon said. “Everyone has something special they’re bringing to the table, and it’s certainly reflected in the quality of the show.”

Cast members Cameron Hall and Faith South said they’re having a lot of fun and think audiences will, too. Zy Traywick, who will be performing at the Roxy for the first time, said he’s getting excited about performing. “I like to make people laugh and smile, and I’m looking forward to doing that for our audiences.”

Maddie Mouser agreed she is eager for the curtain to rise on the show. “People are going to love it.”

Brother and sister Mac and Mazie Vandiver both have parts as lions and munchkins. Mac said the flips are his favorite part, adding that he likes getting to sing and dance and perform with so many other people at the same time. Mazie said she enjoys dressing up and “having a lot of fun as a group.”

“This is our first time doing a spring production,” said Susie Malone, president of the Franklin County Arts and Humanities Council, “and this is a wonderful opportunity for our area to experience this type of show locally.”

Public performance dates are set for April 28-29 at 7 p.m., April 30 at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. and May 1 at 2 p.m.

Tickets can be ordered through Facebook Messenger on the page The Roxy’s Salute to Broadway. The price is $15 for orchestra and $10 for mezzanine. Children 12 months and younger will be admitted free if sitting in an adult’s lap.

Tickets can also be purchased in person at the Roxy on Sundays from 2-3 p.m. and Monday through Friday, 5:30-6:30 p.m.

Tickets will be available at Will Call one hour prior to the show.
