CCM’s Department of Musical Theatre will present “The Revue Review: A Musical Redux Presentation” Nov. 30 and Dec. 1 in the master classroom (Mary Emery Hall room 3250). The revue, a popular form of entertainment in the early 20th century, combined singing, dancing and acting, making it a perfect match for CCM’s “triple-threat” musical theatre students. Admission to “The Revue Review” is free, but reservations are required.

A truly American art form, the golden age of the revue heralded the emergence of American musical theatre. Around the time of World War I, revues delighted audiences with songs by the likes of Cole Porter, Richard Rodgers, Lorenz Hart, Irving Berlin, Eubie Blake, Noël Coward, the Gershwin brothers and Fats Waller.

CCM’s “Revue Review” takes an exciting look back at these long-forgotten shows, featuring the talents of CCM’s Musical Theatre students, and will be presented in the acclaimed minimalist style of CCM’s “Musicals Redux” series.
