Everyone remembers the princesses and their songs. Whether it be Belle in Beauty and the Beast or Ariel from The Little Mermaid, their songs are still remembered and loved by all.
Abigail Adams-DuPrau, who grew up in Geneva loving to sing and perform, remembers the songs and she also fondly recalls her experiences in the community choirs at the St. Peter’s Community Arts Academy.
Wanting to give back, Ms. Adams-DuPrau has put together the “Broadway Princess Revue” that will take place Saturday, Sept. 29th at 7PM and Sunday, Sept. 30th, at 2PM at St. Peter’s Episcopal Church, 149 Genesee St.
Tickets will be available at the door. The Suggested Donation for adults is $10 and $5 for students. All of the proceeds will benefit the St. Peter’s Community Arts Academy’s campaign to offer “Arts for All” in the Finger Lakes.
Ms. Adams-DuPrau will perform in the revue alongside other local talented “Princesses”, including Meredith Beckley, Corinne DeRue, Megan Carlson-Craver, Laura Feligno, Jenny Gibson, Jessica Kinsey, Anna Maria Luisi-Ellis, Jennifer Walczak and some little princesses. Jason Kinsey and Pat Fegley also are performing in the show.
The songs will include Elsa’s “Let It Go” from Frozen, “When Will My Life Begin” by Rapunzel in Tangled, Ariel’s “Part of Your World” from The Little Mermaid, and many more.
The Arts Academy offers lessons and performances in children’s choirs, piano, violin, cello, organ, voice, dance and guitar and now serves more than 300 students from 16 area schools in a five-county area in large part due to the dedicated core of instructors and staff, all of whom are professionals in their field. Embracing its theme of “Arts for All,” the Academy is open to everyone from infants to adults and is not affiliated religiously although St. Peter’s Church sponsors and supports the Academy.
