Hearing Wildhorn, Kander & Ebb in Tampa

A selection from Frank Wildhorn's Broadway-aimed musical Bonnie & Clyde will be presented as part of the Broadway Theatre Project Festival in Tampa beginning July 30. Now in its 18th year, BTP provides young artists with hands-on training from actors and creative professionals within the Broadway community. The three-week summer workshop culminates in a public presentation at the University of South Florida showcasing the work of BTP participants, many of whom go on to careers on Broadway.

BTP artistic director Debra McWaters directs and choreographs the Bonnie & Clyde selection, with Broadway music director David Loud leading students through songs from the upcoming Kander and Ebb revue First You Dream. The Wildhorn musical will make its premiere at the La Jolla Playhouse in November, while First You Dream is scheduled to arrive at the Signature Theatre in Washington, DC in September.

Last summer BTP was the first to showcase songs from Wildhorn's Wonderland, a contemporary take on "Alice in Wonderland," which will premiere at the Tampa Bay Performing Arts Center in November.
