YPTW Alumni and Strath Haven High School grads (l. to r.) Josh Young, Brian Lowdermilk and Marcus Stevens are three of the featured performers at next week’s “Come Home to YPTW” concert. See calendar listing for Wed., Feb. 3.

Young People’s Theatre Workshop (YPTW) will host “Come Home to YPTW,” a concert featuring alumni star performers on Wednesday, February 3, at 7:30 p.m., at the Players Club of Swarthmore.

The event will feature a performance by Josh Young, a Tony nominee for Jesus Christ Superstar, who recently completed a Broadway run in which he originated the leading role in the musical Amazing Grace. Actor and director Marcus Stevens who starred in Forbidden Broadway in New York will also appear, and award-winning composer Brian Lowdermilk will participate as a composer and instrumentalist.

Additional performers include Cory Wade Hindorff, a finalist on TV’s “America’s Next Top Model,” regional musical theater artist Jenna Pastuzsek, off-Broadway performer Michael Jansen, longtime PCS favorite Liz Seymour and recording artist Courtney Jansen.

Tickets are $25 in advance and $30 at the door. Proceeds benefit YPTW’s spring production of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, a technically expensive production that requires a flying car.
