5 student dancers and 2 adult performers from Maywood Fine Arts and Stairway of the Stars Dance Studio were cast as “Supers” in Gershwin’s Porgy and Bess at the Lyric Opera of Chicago. Heidi Renteria, the head dance teacher at Stairway of the Stars encouraged this group of talented individuals to try out. “We have so many skilled students, I can’t help but to think of them when I see auditions posted,” says Renteria. “It’s going to be an amazing show.” Porgy and Bess opens November 17 and will run through December 20.
Along with these performers, 2 more students landed roles in Il Travatore which is currently running now through November 29, and Anna Bolena which opens December 6 through January 16 at the Lyric Opera of Chicago.
