The cast will arrive in Auburn on Monday, Sept. 16 where they will be lead to the Auburn Avenue Theater via police escort at 2 p.m. and later welcomed by Mayor Pete Lewis at 5 p.m. and then meet their host families at 6 p.m.

While in Auburn, the cast members are staying with host families to build personal worldwide awareness and connections and will participate in relevant community service project for Auburn Youth Resources (AYR) to finish painting, grouting, cleaning and preparing a house that will be used as youth homeless shelter. The AYR service project will take place on Tuesday, Sept. 17.

The show features medleys of popular music representing “voices” of the radio, video and digital generations; as well as a medley of international music from Asia, the Americas, Europe and Africa.
