Motown the Musical coming to NIACC in October

MASON CITY – The Pritchard Broadway Series proudly presents Motown the Musical, at the North Iowa Community Auditorium on the NIACC campus at 7:00 p.m. on Wednesday, October 25th, and Thursday, October 26th, 2017. This presentation is part of the 2017-2018 Performing Arts and Leadership Series for the 20th Anniversary Season.

The hit Broadway musical features music and lyrics from the legendary Motown catalogue and is produced by Kevin McCollum, Doug Morris and Motown Founder Berry Gordy.

Directed by Charles Randolph-Wright, Motown is the true American dream story of Motown founder Berry Gordy’s journey from featherweight boxer to the heavyweight music mogul who launched the careers of Diana Ross, Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder, Smokey Robinson, Marvin Gaye and so many more.

Featuring all the classics you love, Motown tells the story behind the hits as Diana, Smokey, Berry and the whole Motown family fight against the odds to create the soundtrack of change in America. Motown shattered barriers, shaped our lives and made us all move to the same beat.

Motown the Musical’s arrangements and orchestrations are by Grammy and Tony Award® nominee Ethan Popp (Rock of Ages), who also serves as music supervisor in reproducing the classic “Sound of Young America,” with co-orchestrations and additional arrangements by Tony Award® nominee Bryan Crook (Smash) and dance arrangements by Zane Mark (Dirty Rotten Scoundrels).

Motown the Musical is produced by Tony Award® winning producer Kevin McCollum (Rent, In the Heights, Avenue Q), Chairman and CEO of SONY Music Entertainment Doug Morris and Motown Founder Berry Gordy, in association with Work Light Productions.
