By Herald Staff
JASPER — Jasper Community Arts announced that Broadway star Mandy Gonzalez ("Hamilton," "In the Heights") will perform a special concert, streamed live, on Oct. 10.
The performance, which begins at 7:30 p.m. and is presented with support from MasterBrand Cabinets Inc., will feature Broadway, standards and pop; a live Q&A; and a duet with a local student.
Mandy Gonzalez has thrilled audiences on Broadway, lit up the screen on television and started a social movement.
While most recently starring as Angelica Schuyler in the hit Broadway musical "Hamilton," she is best known for her emotional portrayal of Nina Rosario in the Tony Award winning, Lin-Manuel Miranda Broadway musical, "In the Heights," a role she originally created Off Broadway at 37 Arts and which received a Drama Desk Award for Best Ensemble.
Gonzalez also starred as Elphaba in the Broadway production of Wicked, blowing the roof off of New York’s Gershwin Theatre each night as she belted out the signature song, “Defying Gravity.” Other Broadway roles include Princess Amneris in the Elton John and Tim Rice musical Aida and the Broadway show Lennon, where she portrayed multiple roles, including that of Beatles’ icon John Lennon.
Equally at home on the big and small screen, Gonzalez has appeared in Across the Universe, directed by Julie Taymor, as well as the ABC drama thriller Quantico and CBS’s Madam Secretary.
Middle school and High School students in Dubois County are invited to submit an audition video for duet consideration. The selected student will have their duet premiered during the live stream.
To be considered, students should record a one-minute video of themselves singing one of the following: “For Good” from "Wicked," “No More Tears (Enough is Enough)” from "The Donna Summer Musical," or “When You’re Home” from "In the Heights." Students should include their name, grade and which school they attend.
Links to video submissions should be sent to email@example.com by 5 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 11.
Tickets for the performance are $15 for individuals and $35 for groups of three or more. For more information, or to purchase tickets, visit www.jasperarts.org or call 812-482-3070.
