Rockford Auburn CAPA presents ‘Aida’ May 9-12

Online Staff Report

Rockford’s Auburn Creative and Performing Arts (CAPA) High School presents Elton John and Tim Rice’s Aida May 9-12. This contemporary musical features a pop-rock score that embraces multi-cultural experiences shown with exuberant dancing, staging, and singing with a cast of 42 Auburn students.

Aida is a tale of love … a timeless bond between two sworn enemies — Radames, captain of the Egyptian army and soon-to-be pharaoh, and Aida, a Nubian princess made slave by the Egyptian army. These two lovers are faced with two eternal decisions: death, or life without one another. They set the stage with true devotion and love to break the cultural differences between their nations and leave behind them a time when peace and prosperity flourishes.

Stage direction is by James L. Crow, technical direction by Joselyn Ludtke, musical direction by Beth Heuer and choreography by Paulene Urso.

Tickets are $5 for the 7:30 p.m., Thursday, May 9, show or the 2 p.m., Saturday, May 11 show; and $8 for the 7:30 p.m., Friday and Saturday, May 10-11, shows, and the 2 p.m., Sunday, May 12, show.
