The Hope Centre for Excellence would be showcasing their first show ‘A night at the Broadway’ on October 31 at IMC with chief minister Neiphiu Rio as chief guest.
Interacting with media persons on Wednesday, director of the show Nise Meruno said the show would be a little different from the other musicals or broadway shows.
Nise said he created the show with some components of a real broadway show with local artists with an attempt to showcase glimpses of a real musical.
Unlike broadway shows which are based on one story line, the show at IMC would consist of various elements including some excerpts from classics like ‘The Phantom of the Opera’ and the like.
The centre director Zubeno Mozhui said the cast and crew, about 70 of them has been rehearsing for over a month now and would be a real treat for people. It would include some first times in Nagaland like the showcase of ballerinas between the age 6 to 13, a piano trio and a feature of the only neo-classical male voice in Nagaland, the ‘Zowe Madrigal’.
The show has been targeted mainly for school students having music in their curricula and has invited about 200 students from different schools so that they would get a glimpse of the various aspects of having a music career.
‘A night at the Broadway’ would last about 90 minutes and would flow evenly from one feature to the other. Nise said the show would include a lot of play with lighting, stage designs, choreography and props.
Some prominent artists who would be performing in the show include Nise Meruno, Ezono Kithan John, Quine Vasa, Asin Shurhozelie, Razo Vasa and others.
