Ray of Light Foundation presents
Shine Your Light Youth Vocal Competition

284885

Ray of Light Foundation presents 2024 Shine Your Light Youth Vocal Competition Like a lot of kids who go through childhood cancer, Raymond M. Cruz felt a need to give back. He often turned to his love of music, which he credits with helping him through treatment. He wanted to be able to perform and help people that way, and either be someone to look up to or be able to give back by raising money for the patients and families at Vanderbilt Children’s Hospital. Raymond valiantly fought a battle with Stage 4 Ewing-like Sarcoma from 2017-2019. Throughout his battle, he was given the opportunity to share his message of hope with people through his music, from the hallways of Vanderbilt Children’s Hospital to the stage of the Ryman. Ray and his mother, Blandina, started the Shine Your Light Youth Vocal Competition in 2019 where he stated to the audience that he hoped that the competition would continue for years to come. Ray’s family and friends have continued the competition in Ray’s name and with his spirit guiding him. Please join us for a wonderful cause. The event will take place April 27, 2024, at the Williamson County Performing Arts Academy 7:00pm to 9:00pm. Video Auditions are now being accepted until April 5 th Ages 5-18.

Hartzog & Silva PLLC present the Star Bright Players'
The Hunchback of Notre Dame

Hunchback Performances (Square)

Hartzog & Silva, PLLC presents the Star Bright Players (ages 12-18) production of The Hunchback of Notre Dame, a lushly scored retelling of Victor Hugo’s epic story of love, acceptance and what it means to be a hero. Based on the Victor Hugo novel and songs from the Disney animated feature, The Hunchback of Notre Dame showcases the film’s Academy Award-nominated score, as well as new songs by Alan Menken and Stephen Schwartz. Peter Parnell’s book embraces story theatre and features verbatim passages from Hugo’s gothic novel. The musical begins as the bells of Notre Dame sound through the famed cathedral in fifteenth-century Paris. Quasimodo, the deformed bell-ringer who longs to be "Out There," observes all of Paris reveling in the Feast of Fools. Held captive by his devious caretaker, the archdeacon Dom Claude Frollo, he escapes for the day and joins the boisterous crowd, only to be treated cruelly by all but the beautiful Romani woman, Esmeralda. Quasimodo isn’t the only one captivated by her free spirit, though – the handsome Captain Phoebus and Frollo are equally enthralled. As the three vie for her attention, Frollo embarks on a mission to destroy the Roma – and it’s up to Quasimodo to save them all. Ticket sponsor: Image Surgical Arts (www.imagesurgicalarts.com)
