HyRev, Arizona Broadway Theatre’s advanced and elite performance troupes, is specifically for young performers ages 13-19 with some previous music theatre/dance/show choir experience. The program includes two performance troupes: HyperToneZ (advanced troupe) and Sonic Revolution (elite troupe) – both build upon and improve participants’ performance strengths and include Valley-wide performances (with future out-of-area performances as time and scheduling allow).
This time of year is very busy for the troupe with a performance at the annual ABT community tree lighting, special fundraising performances during dinner service at Elf The Musical, the big Winter Jam concert, as well as auditions for next year’s troupe.
At 5 pm on November 22, the community is invited to participate in the annual lighting of the tree in the lobby of Arizona Broadway Theatre before doors open for Elf The Musical. Sonic Revolution will be performing “You’re a Mean One, Mr. Grinch,” HyperTonez will be performing “Little Drummer Boy,” and both groups together will do “Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays.” Come on out!
After you finish your meal and are waiting to enjoy Elf The Musical, you can relax and take in some more holiday magic as four to five HyRev members perform holiday tunes at the HyRev Tree of Dreams on various nights prior to showtime. This is a fundraiser for the group for their annual California performance trip to Universal Studios and Disneyland.
Twice a year, HyRev showcases their talents at a big concert open to the public. This year, the Winter Jam concert will be held on Monday, December 9, at 7 pm. Tickets are $20 for the general public and $15 for students. You will have a night of song and dance and holiday celebration! Ticket proceeds for this event are a HUGE help in getting the kids to California, so be sure to purchase tickets and help support our kids!
Auditions for HyRev happen twice a year and now’s the time. Auditions will be taking place on Monday, December 16, at Arizona Broadway Theatre beginning at 5 pm. Dance callbacks (invitation only) will happen at 7 pm. Those who audition need to be between the ages of 13 & 19 and must prepare two contrasting sections of 16 bars each (does NOT have to be music theatre).
Happy Holidays from HyRev!
