The current cast of Guild on the Go includes Dennis Love, Scott Freshley, Shannon Maloney, Kaitlin Ruby and Dr. Robbie Rose. Guild on the Go features great talent and musical material that is appealing and appropriate for theatre audiences and the general public. They will perform three segments throughout the day that will feature Broadway show tunes such as “If I Were a Rich Man”, “New York New York”, “You’re a Grand Old Flag” and “When You’re Good to Mama” from Chicago as well as patriotic songs like GOD BLESS AMERICA, written in 1918 by Irving Berlin as a “prayer for God’s blessing of peace for the nation during WWI”… perfect for the Centennial.
