It’s a Broadway Musical Production at Twentynine Palms High School. “Forbidden Broadway” will run at 7:00 p.m. the next two Fridays and Saturdays. ROP broadcasting student Amber Flores says tickets are available at the door….
Twentynine Palms High School is having a musical. The musical “Forbidden Broadway” is produced with the help of high school teachers Mrs. Waycott, Mrs. Willson, Ms. Mullen, and Mr. Keith. It will be held on March 14, 15, 21, and the 22. For military, seniors, kids, and students, tickets will be $12; for adults will be $15. The high school students have been working hard and they have made this not just into a high school musical but a Broadway production. The musical has many known Broadway musical hits but has turned into parodies of the music, so you are sure to have a laugh.
