“Due to the overwhelming turnout at the premiere, we decided to stage an encore performance,” said Armstrong Auditorium house manager, Shane Granger. “We had more viewers than seats, so some had to view the production on monitors in the lobby and dozens were turned away at the door once we reached capacity. We wanted to give them and many more another opportunity to experience this exclusive production in the world-class Armstrong Auditorium.”
Jeremiah is Armstrong College’s first original production and features the art of step dancing combined with the vocals of musical theater. More than 120 Herbert W. Armstrong College and Armstrong Imperial Academy students, faculty and staff are involved in the production, as well as local community members and a 12-piece orchestra.
Admission to Jeremiah is free, but guests are encouraged to call ahead and reserve tickets due to the demand.
The musical serves as the perfect end to the Armstrong International Cultural Foundation’s premiere of archaeological artifacts from the time of Jeremiah. Armstrong Auditorium is host to nearly a dozen figurines, large vessels and royal seal impressions in an interactive exhibit titled Seals of Jeremiah’s Captors Discovered, which will be on display in the lobby during the performance. The exhibit is in its final weeks before closing.
The regularly scheduled 2012-2013 Armstrong Auditorium performing arts series continues on January 28 and 29 with back-to-back performances from the Russian National Ballet Theatre.
