We enjoyed the play very much. It would be a great play to be done in a middle school or high school. A fun way to make the kids think.

Description

Americans All — A musical revue that cleverly examines and celebrates American core values

Music and Lyrics by Honorable James P. Gray

Arranged by Susan Boettger

Directed by Vanda Eggington

Vanguard University’s highly acclaimed and award-winning department of theatre arts presents the World Premiere of Americans All, a clever and inspiring original musical revue written by local retired Orange County Superior Court Judge James Gray. Americans All is presented in the Lyceum Theatre on the Vanguard University campus.

The show’s director, Vanda Eggington, describes the show, “It’s always such a great thrill to present original material for the first time. The show has not been done before, so no one has any preconceived notions about what they are going to experience on stage. Actors, musicians and audience alike—and even the show’s author—are all going to take this wild ride together into the magic of musical theatre. This show could probably be best described as a blend of To Sir, With Love because the teacher inspires the students; The Breakfast Club because the students inspire each other; and Glee because they are constantly breaking out in song.”
