On November 10, 2019, Perry Ehrlich celebrated the 25th anniversary of his iconic musical theatre summer camp for kids called Gotta Sing! Gotta Dance! by having a showcase performance during the Chutzpah Music Festival that was held that weekend. The performance featured many of Perry’s previous and current performers from Gotta Sing! Gotta Dance! camps of the past, as well as his Showstoppers performance group. Some of Perry’s past students have gone on to careers in musical theatre, opera, and film and TV, and have even been nominated for the prestigious Tony Award for their work!
Perry is incredibly committed and passionate about his work in Gotta Sing! Gotta Dance!, as are the performers - and, as always, the performance showed it.
The show was an amazing display of talent and the fact that so many of his students came back to participate was an incredible tribute to all of Perry’s work, love for the projects, and the kids. His daughter, Lisa, even performed with him, which was one of the many, many highlights of the evening.
