Miami Beach, Fla.–Miami Beach Parks and Recreation brought a piece of New York City as they celebrated the 69th Annual Playground Revue to the theme “Miami Beach Goes Broadway.” This year’s production highlighted the most acclaimed musicals of recent and past years. Playground Revue, an old-time favorite and a highlight for the summer, showcased dances performed by children that attend Miami Beach Parks and Recreation day camp programs. The show took place at the Fillmore Miami Beach, 1700 Washington Ave. on Thursday, July 12, 2012.
An ensemble of nearly 700 campers in grades 4th through 12th from the Scott Rakow Youth Center, Stillwater Park, 21st Recreation Center and North Shore Park Youth Center performed songs from amazing musicals such as “Annie”, “The Lion King”, “Chicago”, “Wicked” and “Hairspray”, just to name a few. To add to the fun, the Miami Beach Parks & Recreation staff performed their very own “Broadway Medley”, and to top it off a “Grand Finale” performed by the campers culminated the night with a special performance of mixed dance routines.
The city created a second night of entertainment as pee-wee and primer campers in grades K through 3rd from Muss Park, Flamingo Park and North Shore Park Youth Center danced the night away at the North Shore Park Bandshell, 7275 Collins Ave. on Friday, July 13th.
