Dessert and Musical Theater? I'm There!

Have some fun with the WSU Choir at their production of “Smokey Joe’s Cafe”

​What is better than musical theater and desserts? Nothing. The middle of winter can be tough. Between the below zero temperatures and the never ending snowstorms winter can be boring and depressing.

Not only is there a solution for those winter blues, but this solution includes a live theater performance AND desserts. On February 22, the WSU concert choir is putting on a live theater performance of Smokey Joe’s Café. This is a live theater performance that takes the audience back to the days of the 1950s and 1960s.

Not familiar with a lot of hits from those decades? Sure you are! The concert includes hits like “Jailhouse Rock” and “Stand by Me.” And anyway, who doesn’t love the classics?

WSU Choir member Garrett Bowling says that the performance is enjoyable, fun, and will be an overall great performance! The concert choir had pre-auditions last semester for solos and group ensembles. The rest of the choir has been working on this project all semester.

If the music aspect isn’t enough, there will be five different desserts served throughout the performance. The desserts are included in the ticket price.

The concert will take place at  7pm on February 22 in Somsen Hall. For more information stop by the PAC box office!​

So take a night off from work and assignments and let the WSU concert choir entertain you with the performance of the year.
