Searching for Romeo actor brings Sutton’s music to SWHS concert
Music from Prof. Brian Sutton’s original musical Searching for Romeo — in the form of the song “Come and Get Me, Here I Am” — will be heard Monday, Oct. 19, at Green Bay Southwest High School. The fall choir concert, which begins at 7 p.m., will feature the various choirs performing songs from musicals, TV shows, films, and in one case a video game. The Southwest choir director, Brandon Rockstroh, was also musical director and the male lead in the 2012 production of Searching for Romeo in the Jean Weidner Theatre in the Weidner Center. Fans of the show might notice that “Come and Get Me, Here I Am” wasn’t in the version of Sutton’s show staged on campus; the composer/playwright added it for the New York City theatre festival version of 2014.
