We’ve been to a lot of College Nights at Centerstage, but this one was different because it was Baltimore students themselves who provided the entertainment!
Six brave students performed classic songs from Musicals to a crowd of about 150 students before the doors opened for Centerstage’s “A Little Night Music.” These students were actually very good (surprising us, at least, who thought the show would be mainly students who just wanted to give singing a shot.) Even the manager of a cabaret club nearby took notice, prompting him to invite the students to perform at his venue. These students sang their hearts out, and we were truly impressed. There was even one very ambitious singer who performed a song from “Wicked’ (testing the piano player’s abilities), and sang it beautifully. It just goes to show how talented the students in the area are – there is no way we could get up in front of that many people and sing – and we applaud all those who showed off their talents.
The College Night itself was packed! We’ve never seen so many people come out for a Centerstage event before. Even with a desserts-only buffet (including glutten-free and veggie options – we didn’t even know there were such things), the place was packed with students who seemed to be enjoying themselves. There was a huge selection of discounted bar drinks, including cocktails and beers, and lots of free stuff being handed out – not to mention the 10 or so raffle prizes that were given (including some great prizes like gift cards to movie theaters, Howl at the Moon, and some nightclubs.) All in all the buss of the night was great, as everyone chatted and enjoyed the music. It was almost like being at a real cabaret club.
We were very entertained by this College Night, and it was great to see students show off their talents. We hope the next one is even better!
