UW junior Denny Le was sixteen when he got hooked on live  musical theater. He went to see In The Heights at Seattle’s 5th  Avenue Theater and was mesmerized. “I was astounded by the amount of talent on  stage,” he recalls. Le hopes audiences will say the same about Sweet Charity, the inaugural production  of the UW’s Musical Theater program. He will perform in the musical, which runs  from November 14 to November 23.            

Musical Theater is a new interdisciplinary program in  the College of Arts and Sciences, funded through a combination of College and private support.
