The Welk Theatre is proud to present Stepping Out!  We have assembled a wonderful cast from San Diego area including Brenna Fleeman of Escondido, Megan Barrow of Carlsbad, April Henry of San Diego,
Lauren King of Encinitas, Sue Boland of Coronado and several Los Angeles actors.  The cast is directed and choreographed by Broadway Veteran Jon Engstrom who was in the original Broadway Company of 42nd Street.

This show is a funny, poignant look at the lives and relationships of89 tap students, their instructor and a crotchety piano player.  As they work on developing their tap abilities they find that they are more apt to develop
their social skills and innate, hidden abilities to love and respect each other.  The movie version of this show starred Liza Minelli and Shelley Winters.

Filled with tap dance sequences as the students learn, the show culminates into two spectacular tap dance routines as the students “perform” for the local charity – once at the end of their training, and again one year
later as we see how their talents have truly developed.
