Friday, January 25, 2013742 views

  When SCERA Production & Programs Manager Shawn Mortensen heard 14-year-old Mckenna Hixson audition for a spot in SCERA’s Night of Broadway, he was speechless.

  “I audition people all the time,” he said. “But she nearly knocked me on the floor. I literally could not say anything; she was that amazing.”

  Hixson, who will perform a number from “Hallelujah Baby,” set the bar for the other performers, according to show producers Mortensen and SCERA President & CEO Adam Robertson.

 The performances are Jan. 31 and Feb. 1, 2, and 4 at 7:30 p.m. Reserved-seat tickets are $10 for adults and $8 for children (age 3-11), seniors (age 65+) and students (w/ID). Tickets are available at, by calling (801) 225-ARTS, or at the SCERA Center for the Arts.  

The 4th Annual Night of Broadway will feature selections from some of the most popular shows that have played in The Big Apple, including “Wicked,” “Disney’s Tarzan,” “Dreamgirls,” “Into the Woods,” “Secret Garden,” “Smokey Joe’s Café,” “Children of Eden,” “Chicago,” “Aida,” “The Last 5 Years,” “Fame,” “Godspell,” “Bye, Bye Birdie,” and  “The Sound of Music.”

  The evening will begin with the energizing 80’s rock number “Don’t Stop Believin’;” from “Rock of Ages” and conclude with a montage of favorite selections from “Les Miserables”: “Bring Him Home,” “On My Own,” “I Dreamed a Dream” and “Empty Chairs, Empty Tables.” Additionally, SCERA’s adult repertory dance company, Pulse, will present “Hot Honey Rag” from “Chicago.”
