Beauty & the Beast

The Launch: A Senior Cabaret
Jenna will be performing with her BFA class for the last time on the Cowan Stage, The Launch: A Senior Cabaret. This show is the greatest hits of all the seniors performances throughout their 4 years of training. So if you came to any of the performances or shows at Otterbein and were like, "Man, I hope I get to see this number again", you probably will! This show is right around the corner on Sunday December 4th at 2pm. It will be featuring Otterbein Alumni Lindsay Nicole Chambers (Class of '02), who most recently starred as Lauren in the first national tour of Kinky Boots. She has also been seen on Broadway in Lysistrata Jones, Legally Blonde, and Hairspray. Not to mention any of her countless regional theatre credits. The Launch is a fundraiser for the senior showcase in New York City. This is their last performance not only as a class, but it is the performance that "launches" them into the professional world. Jenna hopes to see everyone on December 4th!
