The Capital City Players are gearing up for a special show set to begin Friday.

“Songs for a New World,” which is not part of the regular theater season, is a new musical that blends everything from jazz and gospel to pop, said Rob Crouse with Capital City Players.

Crouse said most people are probably not familiar with the musical as it’s a fairly new play on Broadway that was brought to the group by one of their own actors and singers, Dustin Allison, who will be directing the show as well as performing in it.

Crouse said each song in the show will tell the story of a different choice in someone’s life, which he said should enable audience members to relate to the stories easily.

The play can be seen at 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday at Shikles Auditorium, with dessert served at 7:30 p.m, and at 2 p.m. Sunday, with dessert served at 1:30 p.m. For ticket information, call (573) 681-9012 or visit www.capitalcityplayers.com.
