Bear Creek Elementary salutes '100 Years of Broadway'

Bear Creek Elementary's gym was packed to capacity for "A Tribute to 100 Years of Broadway" April 9.
   The production was performed by the 4th, 5th and 6th grade students. Elaine Hoffman, music specialist, and Cheryl McDavid, dance specialist, produced a musical tribute which included songs from such favorites as "Oklahoma," "The Music Man," "West Side Story" and "Phantom of the Opera."
   Each grade level added their own special touch with solos and dances to highlight the best of those shows. A jazz band ensemble, with musicians from Timbercrest Junior High and Bear Creek, took part.
   The evening's narrators (pictured above) provided solos to transition from Tin Pan Alley days in 1902 to contemporary Broadway of the '70s.
