Bill Dickey’s Big Broadway Bash

Marquee BDBBBOn Saturday, June 15, 2013,  as part of Bill Dickey’s Big Broadway Bash, the PGMC performed for a near capacity crowd with the largest chorus in their 33 year history!  The three hour extravaganza featured 170 singers, a 8-piece orchestra, three smaller performing groups, and costumes and sets galore!

David was excited to contribute in several ways to the programming for the evening.  Eight of the orchestra arrangements were written by David, including the Overture for the evening.  As the director of Full Tilt, the PGMC Broadway sub-group, he co-directed and helped stage Hello! from The Book of Mormon.  He also directed and staged Keep It Gay from the Producers, and Time Warp from The Rocky Horror Show.

“It was a joy to work with this great cast,” David said.  “They worked hard for eight weeks to get every nuance just right.  They were so creative, each bringing their own perspective to the final project.  It is amazing what can happen when a bunch of uber-talented people get together.  The challenge as a director is to stay out of the way and not mess up the creative process!”

Congratulations to PGMC on a spectacular show!
