Jan. 1 Caleb Mills Auditorium, Shortridge High School Here’s an optimistic
way to start 2010. A parade of young Indianapolis talent—many at home from college on holiday break—take turns
belting out the best of Broadway, new (including tunes from “Cry-Baby” and “In the Heights”) and old.
Participants include Jessica Murphy and Brook Wood, whom I praised in “Songs for a New World” back in 2008. Tickets
are a mere $8 and proceeds benefit the Shortridge Speech Team. For details, call 440-1372.
