Michael James Scott, shown here, who has played the Genie in “Disney’s Aladdin” internationally, including originating the role in Australia and on Broadway, will perform April 25 at The Virginia Somerville Sutton Theatre at Well-Spring as part of the 2021-22 Broadway to Greensboro concert season. Tickets are on sale now at www.ticketmetriad.com.
Scott also originated roles in “Something Rotten” and “The Book of Mormon.”
“Broadway to Greensboro” is a concert and education collaboration between Well•Spring and UNCG Musical Theatre. The series launched in November 2019 with the Broadway star of “Wicked,” Jessica Vosk, in a concert at Well•Spring that quickly sold out. That show was followed by another sold-out performance by Drew Gehling, a Guilford County native who starred on Broadway in “Waitress.” Already this season, stars Solea Pfeiffer (“Hamilton”) and Shoshana Bean (“Wicked”) have graced Well-Spring’s stage.
The collaborative series consists of three engagements with Broadway artists each year. Each artist gives a master class for the Musical Theatre students at UNCG, as well as a concert at Well•Spring. A fourth concert each year flips the concept and is called “Greensboro to Broadway,” featuring students in UNCG’s program. That concert is scheduled for April 12, and 100 percent of ticket proceeds from that event will go directly to Musical Theatre Scholarships at UNCG. These tickets also are on sale now at www.ticketme.triad.com.
A generous gift to endow the program was made in 2021 by Well-Spring resident Sue Irvin and her late husband, John.
