Meghan Glogower (’12), who studied musical theater and dance has been cast in the roles of Kimberley and Dot in The Nutty Professor, as directed by Jerry Lewis. The show opened in the Tennessee Performing Arts Center (TPAC) on July 31 and will run until Aug. 18.
While at Belmont, Glogower performed in several campus productions, including Hairspray, Anything Goes and Urinetown.
She said those experiences prepared her to take on the musical.
“(The professors) helped me. They taught me how to prepare and how to do well,” she said. They gave her the confidence to try out for the open dance casting call, where she was asked to sing and read for several parts.
Critics have been nearly unanimous in their praise, leading many to believe that the show will make its way to Broadway following its run in Nashville. Glogower said she thinks the move the Broadway is “very likely.”
