The United States Naval Academy Glee Club’s top show every year is their Winter Musical, which will play the first three nights of March 2019. In authentic Broadway fashion, the show will be costumed, choreographed, and fully staged accompanied by a live pit orchestra and performed by the USNA Men’s and Women’s Glee Clubs.
Men’s Glee Club
Most renowned of the Naval Academy’s musical groups, the Men’s Glee Club is considered one of America’s best men’s choral ensembles, achieving national prominence. The choir was recently seen on “Christmas in Washington”, “Good Morning, America”, “The Early Show”, “The Kennedy Center Honors”, “The Today Show”, and several PBS features.
Women’s Glee Club
Founded in 1976 with the advent of the first women admitted into the Naval Academy, the group has achieved international renown due to their repertoire of songs and elegant performances. As the world’s lone all-female military choral choir, the Women’s Glee Club has put on shows throughout the U.S. and overseas.
Little Shop of Horrors
A horror comedy rock musical, Little Shop of Horrors features the music of Alan Menken and lyrics and book by Howard Ashman. The protagonist is a florist shop worker who raises a carnivorous plant that devours people. Adapted from the 1960 low-budget black comedy feature film The Little Shop of Horrors production, the musical’s songs are inspired by 1960s rock n’ roll, doo-wop and early Motown.
Debuting Off-Off-Broadway in 1982, the production moved to the Orpheum Theatre Off-Broadway and had a successful run of five years. Many productions followed across America and internationally, and eventually there was a Broadway production. In 1986, the movie based on the musical and directed by Frank Oz was released in the United States.
