Singer brings music to Western Springs
WESTERN SPRINGS — Tracey Ford has performed with operas in venues stretching from Chicago to Salzburg, Austria. But her latest task is to bring singing to the Theatre of Western Springs, which has featured mostly drama and comedy productions since its founding in 1929.
“Passport to Broadway” will take place Saturday and Sunday in the theater’s mainstage auditorium and serve as a fundraiser for TWS. The show, which Ford labels a “musical revue,” will sample songs from musicals set in different parts of the world, such as “The Sound of Music” (Austria), “Man of La Mancha” (Spain), “Oliver” (England), and several American musicals, including “Oklahoma” and “Annie Get Your Gun.”
Some of the show’s 65 singers — about 40 adults and 25 kids — are experienced singers, but for others, it’s a chance to test their pipes after years without singing. And for some people who were “afraid they couldn’t sing but like to sing,” the show offers a chance to perform for the first time, Ford said.
