A Tale of Two Cities – a Musical

Be among the first to view the premiere performance of a high school version of A Tale of Two Cities…a new musical, directed by Cherry Hill’s own Robert D. Nation. 

 
The musical will be performed live at Cherry Hill High School East by the Cherry Hill Recreation Department’s Summer Theatre group.  Featuring a cast of over 40 area teens, audiences will be delighted with their rendition of A Tale of Two Cities…a new musical.

The original Broadway show starred two Cherry Hill natives: James Barbour from High School East & Aaron Lazar from High School West.  In addition, Mr. Nation worked on the Broadway show in the Educational Outreach Department. At the encouragement of Bronx history teacher, East grad Brandon Lowe, Mr. Nation was inspired to develop the first program on Broadway to offer free tickets to students from the five boroughs enrolled in Title 1 Schools. This was accomplished through a charitable foundation.

Show dates:

  • Thursday, July 23 at 7:30 p.m.
  • Friday, July 24 at 7:30 p.m.
  • Saturday, July 25 at 7:30 p.m.
