Join us for BROADWAY ON THE GRAND a parking lot popup show Saturday, September 12, 8:30 pm—a Riverwalk special event!
We couldn’t say no when our friend Sam Rohloff, asked to put on a show for the Riverwalk community while he’s here at home waiting for New York theatres to reopen their doors. With touring credits from Kinky Boots, and West Side Story, and as a graduate from Oakland University, he’s put together a night of show tunes with special guests you won’t want to miss.
Performers include Sam, himself, plus Emily Hadick, who has come a long, long way since she played orphan “Pepper” in Riverwalk’s 2011 Annie. She’s performed at Meadowbrook, Encore, The Dio, Exit Left Theatre, The Huron Playhouse... and more.
...and Sean Holland II, a fourth-year MSU award-winning music education/classical voice major who was outstanding as “Seaweed J. Stubbs ” in Riverwalk’s 2019 Hairspray as well as playing the title role in Orpheus in the Underworld among other roles at MSU and he has been featured on many recordings.
Performers are supported by Kait Wilson on keyboard and by Riverwalk staff and technicians: Kelly Jo Garland on sound, Cody Skalmowski and Cambray Sampson on lights, Jeff Magnuson producing, and Tom Ferris and Leroy Cupp on staging and logistics.
There will be no concessions sold and the building (bathrooms) will not be open to the public. We expect the performance to last about an hour. Parking instructions will be emailed to guests upon processing your reservation. We will be parking vehicles along Museum Dr., Michigan Ave., and within our own north lot.
