Princeton’s new Playhouse Ensembles are thrilled to present “A Playhouse Panoply: Beloved Stories, Reimagined.” The Playhouse Choir and Playhouse Chamber Orchestra unite to present brand-new arrangements of songs from the musicals Hadestown, Spring Awakening, Into the Woods, Sweeney Todd, The Wiz, Shuffle Along, and the beloved Studio Ghibli films. We hope you’ll hear songs and stories you know and love and also encounter some you’ve never heard before. The concert will run under an hour.
Presented by the Lewis Center for the Arts’ Programs in Theater and Music Theater in collaboration with the Department of Music.
About The Princeton Playhouse Ensembles
The Princeton Playhouse Choir is a new ensemble, founded in 2021, housed jointly with the Lewis Center’s Programs in Theater and Music Theater and the Music Department, and focusing on repertoire beginning in a broad range of theatrical traditions and expanding into a realm of experimental and innovative music-making. The core of the group’s repertoire is music connected to theater and reimagined for creative ensemble configurations through new arrangements and interdisciplinary collaborations. Playhouse incorporates large and small ensemble singing, a cappella and accompanied singing, vocal solos, dance, spoken word, new music commissions, and collaborative projects with artists across departments to facilitate a vibrant and inclusive rehearsal environment. The Princeton Playhouse Orchestra is a new instrumental chamber ensemble specializing in the performance of new music commissions, music theater repertoire, popular song, and film music.
