Wellesley Theatre Project (WTP) will
present MISCAST: A Musical Cabaret on Saturday April 29th at 5pm and Sunday April 30th at
2pm and 5pm, featuring students from the audition-only touring group, IMPACT! Admission is
$15 for adults and $10 for students and seniors. The cabaret will take place at the WTP studio,
located at 98R Central St. in Wellesley. Tickets can be purchased online or at the studio.
IMPACT! is comprised of students ranging from 2nd grade through 10th grade who demonstrate advanced performance skills and leadership. The current students come from the Wellesley, Natick, Waban, and Concord communities. The group’s mission is for the students to engage in their local and global communities through outreach by addressing important social values through dramatic performance.
MISCAST: A Musical Cabaret will take traditional musical theatre selections and perform them untraditionally! Join us for solo and group performances with singing and dancing, appropriate for all ages, as well as original monologues written and performed by the students.
The group is led by Hannah Shihdanian, WTP’s Director of Community Outreach/Resident
Choreographer; and Eric Anderson Jr., Music Director. Hannah Shihdanian, director of the cabaret,says, “We chose the theme of Miscast because we think it’s important as actors, to imagine what itwould be like to walk in someone else’s shoes. These are also roles that some of these kids willnever get to play anywhere else!”
