Musical theatre graduates dance their way back to Detroit
Two first-year Oakland University theatre alums, Emily Mitchell and Sam Rohloff, have made the transition from OU undergraduate students to professional touring musical performers with meteoric speed.
“Emily and Sam are both success stories for our program and the entire university,” according to Fred Love, associate professor of musical theatre. “They have both worked hard at their craft and being a part of these touring shows is their payoff.”
This spring, both Emily and Sam will have performance dates in Detroit.
Bring it On
Emily is currently touring as Eva with the show Bring it On. Her tour will include a stopover at the Fox Theatre in Detroit on April 5 and 6.
Emily is the blonde dancer who is front and center. Ticket information.
West Side Story
Sam is currently on tour as Baby John in West Side Story. His show will be at the Fisher Theatre in Detroit between May 13 and 18. Ticket information.
