Music in Motion gearing up for Savannah Center shows filled with Hollywood glitz

If you’re into the glitz and glamour of the entertainment world, Music in Motion has the perfect show for you.

Titled “Hooray Hollywood – Hello Broadway,” the presentation will be held at Savannah Center Tuesday, Feb. 11 and Wednesday, Feb. 12 at 7 p.m., and on Thursday, Feb. 13 at 4 p.m.

The show, directed by Jim Caisse, starts at Hollywood and Vine with dances based on movie classics including “Gone With The Wind,” “Sunset Boulevard” and “Titanic.” On Broadway, guests will experience an emotionally powerful production from “Jesus Christ Superstar” and a challenging rendition of “Hello” from “Book of Mormon” – and more.

The Music in Motion dancers are ready to bring the glitz and glamour of Tinseltown to The Villages with their new show titled ‘Hooray Hollywood – Hello Broadway.’

Guest vocalists will include Jan Lavin, Janet Maloney, Gerry Sherman, David Vece, Mary Lou Merkner and Sally Spieth. Lavin’s Seesaw Dancers are guaranteed to bring plenty of smiles. And the guest masters of ceremony will be Mario Carluccio and Casey Hargreaves.

Music in Motion has been entertaining audiences at the Savannah Center since 2008 with high-energy theatrical productions, hundreds of dazzling costumes, unique musical arrangements and clever themes. The group has contributed more than $70,000 of show proceeds to local and national charities. After the shows are completed, the members also take pleasure in donating many of their glittering costumes to aspiring young local performing groups.

In the past, the group also has performed outside The Villages at the AARP National Convention and during the halftime show at an Orlando Magic game, as well as other special events.

Tickets are available at Villages Box Office locations or by clicking HERE. The cost is $28 for residents and $33 for the general public. A portion of the proceeds from the show will support Villagers Life Care Advocates.
