The Bijou Theatre will present its “Summer Showcase” featuring selections from Once On This Island Jr. with members of the Bijou’s Summer Youth Theatre Program. The showcase will also feature performers from the Bijou’s recently concluded Summer Stock production of the musical Fame. The performance will take place on Friday, July 31, at 7 p.m. at The Bijou Theatre, at 275 Fairfield Ave, Bridgeport.

The production features direction by Kitty Anderson, musical direction by Juan Ayala and choreography by Kirya Evans.

This cast features Tyler Campbell, Betzabeth Castro, Jessica Intelisano, Audra Logan, Katherine Logan, Maggie Luddy, Ryan Ramos and Marisa Sullivan. The concert features direction and musical direction by Juan Ayala.
