Broadway at The Paramount

Saturday, May 18 - 7:30 PM

Experience the magic of Broadway at The Paramount: a dazzling fusion of iconic songs, over 100 aspiring talents, and guest artists from Broadway and beyond, celebrating arts education with hits from The Sound of Music to Shrek and beyond!

Broadway at The Paramount will bring together Broadway and regional artists, over 100 students from DMR Adventures, and graduating seniors for two incredible performances in celebration of arts education. The production will feature songs from Mean Girls, Finding Nemo, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, James and the Giant Peach, The Sound of Music, Shrek, and more! The stars of the DMR Adventures JTF Troupe will present their award-winning piece from Descendants, and our youngest stars from the YAS! Youth After School program will join in the Broadway celebration.

DMR Adventures is thrilled to announce that international director, choreographer, and Broadway performer Matthew Steffens will join the company of Broadway at The Paramount as Emcee and Guest Artist. He was the original director of Broadway at The Paramount for several years when it was a part of DMR’s summer programming. Steffens states, “I can’t wait to be back with DMR Adventures for Broadway at The Paramount. Last summer, when I was directing Cabaret at Virginia Theatre Festival, I was reminded of the amazing talent that is in Charlottesville. A lot has changed in the world since I directed the 2017 version when this was a summer intensive, but one thing has remained the same. DMR Adventures continues to provide opportunities to showcase the best and brightest talent in Charlottesville. I’m excited to work with that talent to create a spectacular show that will take our audience on a journey. Whether it’s on Broadway in NYC to Broadway at The Paramount, I love working with our next generation of artists!”

DMR Adventures appreciates the generous community support to date, including Red Carpet Sponsor Premium Service Brands & Kids Lift, and welcomes additional sponsors.

DMR Adventures has been providing professional performing arts training from the professionals since 2009. The high caliber of training serves to drive passion, discipline, and commitment in the students with whom we work. DMR is comprised of several pre-professional programs, a touring competition team, an after school program (YAS!), a youth leadership program, over 15 summer camps, and year-round training programs, some of which culminate in a Mainstage season of performances. As a result of our exceptional training, our students have gone on to top musical theater conservatories and university training programs, and to perform in film, television, theme parks, and national tours!

We believe in making performances and classes accessible to all and our classes, camps, and tickets are on a sliding scale to help our entire community participate. We are proud to have provided more than $215,000 in scholarships to students in need.
