Way Way Off-Broadway Theatre’s Broadway Bound Kids performed like professionals on Saturday at the Eastern New Mexico University-Roswell Performing Arts Center.
WWOB’s Broadway Bound Kids is an all youth performing group focusing on musical theatre performance training. This year’s theme was “Let’s Go To The Movies.” The children, ages 7 to 16, performed iconic musical songs and dance numbers from movies such as “Footloose,” “Sister Act,” “Singin’ in the Rain” and “Breakfast at Tiffany’s.” The event was free for the public.
The enthusiastic show got the audience hooting, clapping their hands and, when the familiar tunes of “Ghostbusters” started, everybody was shouting. One little girl, Shellie Sanford, loudly asked her mother that she wanted to learn to act and sing as well. With a standing ovation the performance ended and fans, friends and families came up on stage to celebrate the achievement of the Broadway Bound Kids.
