Juanita K Hammons Hall Performing Arts Center announced this year’s Broadway Season this afternoon. KSMU’s Shannon Bowers has the lineup.

To kick off Juanita K’s upcoming Broadway season, Broadway performers are giving Springfield a sneak peak.

For the next two days, the cast will be recreating their greatest moments in the shows they starred in with the national tour of Neil Berg’s 100 years of Broadway.

One those Nationally Touring Broadway performers is Evangel University’s own Carter Calvert.

“I did cat in the national tour so I get to recreate the role of Grizabella… And you also get to hear the stories of how we made it and how our stories came to be,” said Carter.
