Musical Menus Performance Set For March 11-12

February 18, 2016: Clarke University’s annual Musical Menus, a collection of Broadway songs sung by students and faculty, will be performed on Friday and Saturday, March 11-12, in the R.C. and Celeste Wahlert Atrium. Seating is at 6 p.m., followed by the performance and dinner at 6:30 p.m.

Musical Menus includes several selections from a variety of Broadway musicals, while audience members enjoy a five-course gourmet meal. The event has been referred to as the best Broadway revue in the Dubuque area.

“We try to have a mix of drama and pop,” said LaDonna Manternach, chair and associate professor of the Clarke Music Department. “Students of all ages are represented in vocal and instrumental music. This is our last big fundraiser for a trip to Germany and the Czech Republic this summer, so the more people, the more it helps. We’d love to fill the place up.”

Reservations can be done online at, or by calling (563)588-6553 between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Tickets are $70 for Premium seating; $60 for Gold seating; and $50 for Blue seating. Ticket reservations must be made by March 3.
