Don’t miss the magnificent Liz Callaway when she takes the stage at the Legacy League’s 12th annual Scholarship Celebration. Originally scheduled for Thursday, April 30, the Celebration has been postponed due to the Coronavirus. New date and reservation details will be published once available.
An Emmy Award winner and Tony Award nominee, Liz has been described as “an incomparable talent” and a “quintessential female voice of 80s Broadway.” Since her Broadway debut in Stephen Sondheim’s Merrily We Roll Along, she has starred in numerous New York productions, including Miss Saigon, Baby and The Three Musketeers. Liz received widespread acclaim for singing “Memory” in her long-standing role as Grizabella in Cats.
Liz sang the Academy Award nominated song “Journey to the Past” in the animated feature Anastasia and is the singing voice of Princess Jasmine in Disney’s Aladdin and the King of Thieves and The Return of Jafar. Her resume of animated voice work also includes characters in Beauty and the Beast, The Lion King II: Simba’s Pride and The Swan Princess.
Legacy League’s Scholarship Celebration includes a reception, seated dinner and Liz Callaway’s 90-minute concert. Proceeds from the event will provide scholarships to students with significant financial need and challenging circumstances.
