Broadway actors Martina Sykes and Clifton Oliver to join local music ensemble during Huntley High School performance

McHenry County Magazine

Broadway stars Martina Sykes and Clifton Oliver will join local music ensemble Project Two Music for a performance at Huntley High School at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, June 24. 

The performance will include selections from Broadway musicals, such as “Jersey Boys,” “Motown the Musical” and “Beautiful: The Carole King Musical.”

Project Two Music was formed by Huntley High School graduates in 2009. Each year, the group returns to Huntley High School to present a show for the community. 

Sykes started singing in church at the age of 5 and later graduated from the musical theater program at The Pinellas Center for the Arts at Gibbs High School in St. Petersburg, Florida. She has since been on Broadway in “Motown the Musical,” and she has been featured on a CD recording with Tituss Burgess.

Returning to the Huntley stage by popular demand, Clifton Oliver is a Broadway veteran actor. He has recently starred as Berry Gordy in “Motown the Musical”; Simba in “The Lion King”; Fiyero in “Wicked”; and Benny in “In the Heights (opposite Jordin Sparks). 

The 90-minute show will feature hits from a slew of favorite artists, such as Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons, The Jackson 5 and The Temptations, as well as new material from artists like Stevie Wonder, Little Eva, The Shirelles, Marvin Gaye and Smokey Robinson.

Huntley High School is located at 13719 Harmony Road in Huntley. Tickets are currently available online for $20. For tickets and information, visit www.projecttwomusic.com.
