“Way Off Broadway”
brings together the talents of many performers who have been “playing around” with Branch River Theatre (BRT) for many, many years. Much of the motivation in collecting such a vast array of entertainers, is to support a local young man, David Hudgik, who suffered a traumatic spinal cord injury in September, 2011. When the call went out to our fellow acting peers, the response was overwhelming. Knowing that 100% of all of the proceeds generated by performances of Way Off Broadway, would go to David and his family, made the event very personal to many people involved. Many of us know David or know of David, because of his connection with one of the Directors of Way Off Broadway – Jeff Repko.
Over the span of many years, several of the actors who will be appearing in Way Off Broadway have been together in musicals, plays, variety shows and fundraisers for various not-for-profits. The opportunity to work together again for such a worthwhile cause has already made the experience a memorable one. Aside from various vocalists, there will be some improve, skits, baton twirling and a special appearance from people we like to call The Blue Shirt Group.
