Broadway Idol

February 1, 2, 3, 2008, Cowichan Theatre

Broadway Idol, like its TV twin, could just as easily be called “THE BIG AUDITION”! Here on our stage, a group of individuals gather before a panel of three judges to do their ‘number’ and hopefully get chosen to be in this up-coming show called Broadway Idol. The clash of egos, the hilarious ‘boo-boo’s’, the ‘nerves’, the excitement and the sheer joy of auditioning for a show are all here! You’ll laugh till you cry, reminisce as you take a trip down memory lane and be shocked and amazed at the display of our very own valley talent appearing on our stage. You’ll love it; and you’ll tell your friends to come and see “Broadway Idol.”

Consultant: David E. Walden
Since coming to the valley, David has written the music scores for Midsummer Night's Dream and Twelfth Night that played at the “bard@brentwood.” He directed the Shawnigan Players in the Christmas pantomime - Snow White, and music-directed his partner - Greg Finnegan's smash-hit success The Ballymore Reel, produced by the Mercury Players last spring. He is currently working on the soundscape for Greg Finnegan's play - The Wailing in the Wings - which opens in February at the Mercury Theatre and is a tribute to the Nancy Drew and Enid Blyton girl adventure books. He teaches singing, piano, theory and composition but is referred to as "retired"!
