After over a year of Covid restrictions, the Southern Crescent Chorale is bringing live entertainment back to our community.

The seventeenth appearance at Southern Ground Amphitheater will bring the “Great White Way” to downtown Fayetteville. “On Broadway!” will be presented on Saturday, May 22 at 8 p.m.

An extravaganza of some of the greatest hits of the theater world, this concert will not only feature the SCC singers, but also special guest soloists, Trevor Martin and Lydia Campbell.

Trevor Martin is a versatile actor, singer, educator, and musician currently based in Georgia. Described as a “classically-trained baritone, perfect for the Golden Age of musical theater,” Trevor has made a comfortable home both in the operatic and musical theater genres. Some musical theater highlights include: ”Sweeney Todd” (Sweeney Todd), ”Guys & Dolls” (Sky Masterson), ”Les Miserables” (Javert), ”Beauty & the Beast” (Beast), and ”The Sound of Music” (Captain Von Trapp).

This summer, Trevor will be reprising the role of Captain Von Trapp on a year-long Asian tour of ”The Sound of Music with Broadway Asia.”

Lydia Campbell is a 2020 graduate of McIntosh High School and is currently at the Weitzenhoffer School of Musical Theatre at the University of Oklahoma earning her BFA in Musical Theatre performance. Lydia has shared her talents locally in a variety of community theatre shows as well as with her school. Her favorite roles include Tracy from “Hairspray,” Sebastian from “The Little Mermaid,” and her most recent title role of Mary Poppins.

Accompanied by a terrific band, the The Southern Crescent Chorale and soloists will bring live music back to our lives with enthusiasm and superb musicality. Doors open at 7 p.m.
