Broadway-film-TV star -- and Bellevue native -- Megan Hilty lends her powerful pipes to the Seattle Men's Chorus for this blockbuster concert saluting Stephen Schwartz, the composer-lyricist of such famed musicals as Wicked, Pippin and Godspell. In fact, Hilty starred as Glinda in Wicked on Broadway, before going on to appear in 9 to 5: The Musical, and TV's Smash and Sean Saves the World. She'll join the world's largest gay ensemble for this gravity-defying tribute, featuring Schwartz's most popular hits, as well as some of his more rarely-performed gems. Learn More

Great musical composition (Camille Saint-Saens...I recognized two pieces!), lovely piano-playing, and clever poet (Jack Prelutsky). Nice coupling of the music with the readings...Mr. Prelutsky is a good orator. My kids appreciated the event, but I did even more so!
Welcome to our carnival,
Where birds and beasts and such
Behave a lot like people do,
At times a bit too much.
You'll meet the regal lion
And the captivating swan,
The irritating donkeys
That prattle on and on.
You'll meet a tortoise, and some fish
With undulating fins.
Welcome to our carnival —
The music now begins.
by Jack Prelutsky
The concert runs approximately one hour, with no intermission.
All ages are welcome, but the program is geared to those ages 1-5.
