Western Carolina University's College of Fine and Performing Arts to perform at Festival Park

Musical theatre students and faculty from Western Carolina University's College of Fine and Performing Arts will perform a star-spangled variety show as part of the Fourth of July celebration at the Roanoke Island Festival Park.

Fireworks for the event are provided by the Town of Manteo.

The troupe, known as the Western Carolina University Catamount Starz, will take the park's stage at 8 p.m. Saturday, July 4, to perform "What a Country: A Celebration of America." The selection of rock 'n' roll, pop, Broadway, patriotic and light classical song and dance is designed to set the mood for a big fireworks extravaganza to immediately follow the show, said Bradley Martin, director of the WCU musical theatre program.

"What better way to celebrate the quintessential American holiday than with a spirited performance of some of the music that helped define a nation," Martin said. "We're putting together the musical equivalent of a tasty Fourth of July smorgasbord, with a little something for everyone in a family-friendly show suitable for all ages."
