Part musical revue, part original musical, Snapshots: A Musical Scrapbook follows empty-nesters Sue and Dan on a poignant journey through their past, guided by a box of old photographs and the memories the pictures bring to life. As the pair uncover secrets and surprises about their relationship, they’re given an opportunity to rediscover the love they share for one another.

“Snapshots fits in perfectly with a New Year’s theme,” says producing artistic director Sharon Maroney, “offering a glimpse at the choices, challenges, and changes experienced throughout a relationship – and the potential for fresh awakenings.”

Music and lyrics by Stephen Schwartz and book by David Stern. Conceived by Michael Scheman and David Stern with additional music and lyrics by David Crane, Seth Friedman, Marta Kauffman, Alan Menken, and Charles Strouse. Arrangements and orchestrations by Steve Orich.

The Broadway Rose production will be directed by Annie Kaiser with music direction from Colin Shepard. The artistic team includes choreographer Dan Murphy, scenic designer Larry Larsen, lighting designer Carl Faber, costume designer Marion Dawn Hazelwood, properties designer Emily Rusmisel, sound designer Brian Karl Moen, and production stage manager Jessica Junor.

The cast comprises Andrew Maldarelli (Dan), Ali Bell (Sue), Alex Trull (Daniel), Marin Donohue (Susan), Collin Carver (Danny), and Sophie MacKay (Susie).
