Our Fall 2013 show is a musical revue called A Look at the Past, A Light to the Future. It’s a mashup of two themes:   favorite numbers from past shows, and songs about “light”.  Why light? Because we are raising money to pay for new lighting system equipment.  Why past shows?  Because we are celebrating our 45th anniversary.

An exciting variety of solos, duos, trios, and chorus numbers.  Some songs are done by their original performers in a TCS show, but many are entirely new renditions, with new staging and choreography.  The revue includes numbers from these shows:

  • Annie
  • Cabaret
  • Company
  • Fiddler on the Roof
  • Finian’s Rainbow
  • A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum
  • Godspell
  • Guys and Dolls
  • Hair
  • Hairspray
  • Kiss Me Kate
  • A Light in the Piazza
  • The Music Man
  • Newsies
  • Oliver!
  • Pete’s Dragon
  • Pippin
  • Pirates of Penzance
  • She Loves Me
  • Sunday in the Park with George
  • Tangled
  • The Wizard of Oz
  • A Year with Frog and Toad
  • You’re a Good Man Charlie Brown
