Wish upon a star

The ensemble of ‘Bright Star,’ the new musical from the Walnut Grove High School drama class, rehearses a number during class. The Broadway show, written by Steve Martin and Edie Brickell, is a bluegrass-infused drama set in both the 1920s and 1940s based on local folklore of the American South.

The typical sound of a Broadway show is brassy and bold, filled with full orchestras producing sweeping melodies for singing and dancing.

Or, as “The Music Man” describes it, “Seventy-six trombones led the big parade, with 110 cornets right behind.”
