Students and teachers in Hilton Head Preparatory School’s award-winning Performing Arts Department are thrilled to have the opportunity to work directly with Broadway veteran and Hilton Head Prep alumna, Meredith Inglesby, Class of ’93, in preparation for the company’s fourth annual “Fall Spectacular! A Musical Cabaret.”
Performances will be at 7:30 p.m. Sept. 28, 29 and 30, and 2;30 p.m. Oct. 1 at Hilton Head Prep’s Main Street Theatre, 3000 Main St. on Hilton Head.
Performing arts director Patti Maurer has also invited other industry colleagues to create musical numbers for the cast over a series of virtual Master classes.
The hour-long musical revue is performed cabaret-style and features Hilton Head Prep’s wealth of talented actors, dancers, singers, and musicians.
The evening performances will also highlight crowd-pleasing numbers performed by the Hilton Head Prep Orchestra under the direction of Catherine Klimoff Hardy, and the Hilton Head Prep Band under the direction of Marge Swearer.
The Saturday matinee will feature budding performers from the Lower School in a special presentation. From the youngest to the oldest, these students shine as they perform classic and contemporary hits from Broadway, TV, and film musicals.
Due to scheduling conflicts, Inglesby is also filling for Prep’s longtime musical director, Lauren Stuligross.
Inglesby made her professional debut as Eliza Doolittle in “My Fair Lady.” On Broadway, she starred in “Beauty and the Beast” (Babette) and “The Little Mermaid” (original cast) and was in national tours of “On the Record” (cast recording) and “Little House on the Prairie: The Musical” (Eliza Wilder).
Inglesby has also performed in several regional theatre shows, including “Spamalot” at the Arts Center of Coastal Carolina, and in TV shows and commercials.
Prep students and faculty are excited to be working with an alumna so interested in giving back to her alma mater.
Tickets will be on sale at hhprep.org and at the door.
