Broadway Rave – The Castle Theater

Rosie Chappell April 15, 2024

By: Rosie Chappell

Musical theatre and show tunes have always played a huge role in my life. I love getting
to watch musicals, and I have acted in plays and musicals. I guess you can say I was a
theatre kid in high school. Broadway Rave really resparked my love for musicals and
remembering all the lyrics to my favorite songs!

Broadway Rave is a DJ based group who work together to bring musical theatre dance
parties to multiple cities at a time. I have to say, our DJ was one of the best! Not only did
she play so many Broadway classics, but she also knew how to keep the good vibes
going. From crowd karaoke to busting a move herself, this DJ knew how to hype up the
crowd!

The venue itself really caught my eye going in. Broadway Rave performed at The Castle
Theatre, located in the heart of downtown Bloomington. From the outside, this theater
has a retro vibe with how amazing their marquee is. I definitely love taking pictures
outside with it, it’s beautiful. The inside is also just as amazing. They have a pretty
decent sized bar, and they gave out complimentary water, which is super nice when
you’ve been dancing! Plus the staff is seriously the nicest and it made the experience all
the better! This theater is mainly standing room only which is super great for the dance
party, and the stage is just the perfect size for everyone to see.

What also caught my eye were the party goers themselves! Although 18+, this show
had a range of ages in attendance! I got to see some middle aged people bust out their
dance moves right next to college kids killing it on the dance floor. I also really like how
into it people were. Of course, many people attending have been in musical theatre so I
was blown away when the vocals were so good in crowd karaoke. All in all, this
experience was so much fun! I loved getting to dance and sing to songs that I’ve always
loved performing. I can’t wait to go to another Castle Theatre dance party!
