Music of the Night Returns for 19th Season

Santa Barbara High School Theatre’s annual Broadway Revue, Music of the Night, has been a part of student culture at Santa Barbara High School for the past seventeen years and is now returning for its eighteenth season. Music of the Night was created in 1999 by students Blake Berris, Ashley Rodgers, and Evan Hughes, as a way to celebrate student ownership of their theatre education. What started as a little show to fill the long break between the Fall show and the Spring show, often done only with a piano or canned music, has become a full blown stage production, with costume and light design, sophisticated videos, and a live band. It is cast, directed, choreographed and produced entirely by student directors (Bella Holland, Lily Linz, Miranda Ortega and Penny O’Mahoney) under the supervision of Artistic Director Otto Layman. This year the cast of 28 students will perform musical numbers from Broadway musicals — among them, Waitress, La La Land, Aristocats, Kinky Boots, Book of Mormon and many more. The show has grown tremendously over the years, and now has the same stature and attendance of our main stage shows--which is an enormous source of pride to the theatre staff. Music of the Night 2018 plays February 2, 3, at 7pm and February 3, 4 at 2pm in the Santa Barbara High School Theatre. Be sure to mark your calendars, because this is one show you won’t want to miss!
