PORTLAND – Broadway star Kenita Miller will lead the cast in Good Theater’s upcoming Broadway at Good Theater holiday concerts Dec. 4-7 at St. Lawrence Arts Center.

Among the songs Miller will sing are “Waiting For Life” from “Once on This Island” and “O Holy Night.”

Making her third appearance with Broadway at Good Theater, singer Marva Pittman will wrap her lush vocals around a gospel number, “Do You Know What I Mean,” and sing holiday favorite “I’ll Be Home for Christmas.”

The newest addition to the Good Theater cast is Joseph Stanek of New York City, a young lyric baritone who will sing “What Do I Need With Love” from “Thoroughly Modern Millie” and will perform a tap-dancing “Up on the Housetop.”
