This past weekend MNU celebrated 50 years! There were events all weekend long including MNU Theatre Through the Years which was a show with scenes and songs from many of the shows that MNU has performed for the last 50 years. MNU reached out to alumni that had been a part of the theatre department to see if they would return to perform their old roles. The current students filled in the roles that had not be claimed by alumni.
There was about twenty alumni who came back to be in the show!
With all the people that participated in the show there was no room in the greenroom. The current students found themselves camping out in the hallway between scenes.
Over all it was a great show. There were songs from Annie Get Your Gun, Brigadoon, You’re a Good Man Charlie Brown, and Godspell. There were scenes from A Rasin in the Son, Diary of Adam and Eve, The Crucible, The Importance of Being Ernest, and many many more!
