BROADWAY UTICA SELECTS UTICAN FOR WALK-ON ROLE IN RAGTIME
Broadway Utica, in conjunction with Phoenix Entertainment, has selected a Utican to portray the role of “Young Coalhouse” in its national tour presentation of RAGTIME, which will be held at the Stanley Theatre on Wednesday and Thursday, April 6 & 7 at 7:30 p.m.
“Young Coalhouse” will be portrayed by 8-year-old Treyvone Jones of Utica. Jones is a third grader at Jefferson Elementary School and attends the Thea Bowman House for after care. He is a born entertainer, with a bright future. Jones regularly sings in his church choir and actively participates in dancing presentations at the Thea Bowman House.
“At Broadway Utica, it is our mission to provide unique opportunities for local individuals interested in the performing arts,” said Derek Clark, executive director of Broadway Utica. “We are so lucky to have such a talented young man with performing arts experience volunteer to fill this role,” he continued.
At the dawn of a new century, everything is changing…and anything is possible. RAGTIME tells the stories of an upper-class wife, a determined Jewish immigrant and a daring young Harlem musician unfold - set in turn-of-the-century New York - all three united by their desire and belief in a brighter tomorrow. Their compelling stories are set to theatre’s richest and most glorious Tony Award®-winning score. Individual tickets for RAGTIME are still available. Tickets can be purchased at Broadway Utica by calling (315) 724-7196 or by visiting www.BroadwayUtica.com.
