July 9, 2014 – Funny Girl, the 1964 Broadway musical that provided Barbra Streisand with the signature tune People and launched her theatrical and musical career, is the summer production of the Hilliard Arts Council.

The arts council will perform Funny Girl July 11-13 at the Performing Arts Center at Hilliard Davidson High School, 5100 Davidson Road.

“It’s one of my favorite shows,” said director Robin Brenneman, who as a child recited lines from the production and sang People and the show’s other signature song, Don’t Rain on my Parade.

“I know the lines as well as the actors,” Brenneman said.

The arts council has never performed Funny Girl in its 30-plus year history, but Brenneman twice directed the show during her career as director of the drama department at Hilliard High School and Hilliard Davidson High School.
