SUGAR LAND, Texas (July 7, 2018) – Sugar Land’s national award-winning community theatre, Inspiration Stage, is excited to present an advanced Student Showcase, featuring Tony Award-nominee Adam Pascal, Aug. 6 at 7 p.m., at the historic Sugar Land Auditorium, 226 Lakeview Dr.
Pascal is best known for his role as Roger in RENT, which he originated both on Broadway and in the 2005 film. He has also starred on Broadway in Aida (Radames), Cabaret (Emcee), Chess (Freddie), Chicago (Billy), Memphis (Huey), Disaster (Chad), and most recently, Something Rotten (Shakespeare).
Pascal will spend the day working one-on-one with some of Inspiration Stage’s advanced students, providing educational insight and personal feedback in a workshop format. Many attending students are aspiring professionals attending or seeking musical theatre college programs.
The day will culminate with an open-to-the-public Student Showcase with special guest Pascal performing a few numbers from his past Broadway shows. The concert will conclude with a moving tribute performance you won’t want to miss!
In addition to his numerous Broadway successes, Pascal has released two solo rock albums, Model Prisoner (2000), Civilian (2004), as well as a collaborative rock album Blinding Light (2008) with pianist, Larry Edoff. In television and film, he appeared in RENT (2005), School of Rock, (2003), Temptation (2004), and Cold Case (2006).
