Bradford High School’s production of “The Scottsboro Boys” is heading to the International Thespian Festival June 24-29 in Lincoln, Neb.
In Nebraska, Susan Stroman, who directed and choreographed the Broadway production, will attend the June 26 “Scottsboro” performance and “do a talk-back with our cast, crew and production team on Thursday (June 27) at the festival,” said Holly Stanfield, who oversaw the local production of the Broadway musical, based on the infamous trials that started in 1931 in Alabama.
Bradford’s production was directed by Chris Carter, a professional actor and choreographer; Stanfield was the show’s vocal director.
