Napa Valley College Performing Arts is excited to announce a collaboration between the Department of Music and Festival Napa Valley to present a Spring 2022 musical theater revue starring acclaimed Broadway performer Ryan Silverman and Napa Valley College students. Silverman and Napa Valley College students will perform together works from both movie musicals and musical movies, delighting audiences with favorites from the stage and screen.

This onstage collaboration of the college and the Festival culminates in a week-long residency with both Silverman and noted Broadway choreographer Kim Craven. Silverman and Craven’s residency at Napa Valley College includes daily workshops with students on musical theater performance and rehearsals for the musical revue featuring both ensemble pieces and solos. Students will prepare for the residency and performance over an 8-week rehearsal period with performances taking place for live, in-person audiences on March 25 and 26, 2022 at the Napa Valley College Performing Arts Center. Interested actors (ages 16+) must audition and then, once cast, enroll as students in a corresponding production class through Napa Valley College in order to participate in the workshop and its live public performances. College credit is available for all cast members.
