Here's what's going on in town today

Good day and happy Friday.

Local performing arts students are getting a boost from Broadway. Thanks to the collaborative efforts of the Wharton Center’s Institute for Art & Creativity and MSU’s Department of Theatre, an elite group of students have the opportunity to participate in the imáGen program, which gives them the chance to work with leaders in the Broadway industry, including singers, dancers, directors and composers.

New York theater director Joe Barros will direct the group’s production of “For Tonight,” an indie-rock love story. The musical starts in a small Welsh village, where siblings Thomas, Hayden and Nettie find themselves living on their own following the death of their parents. With empty pockets and a guitar in hand, Hayden ventures off to Liverpool to fill the missing pieces in his life and find a place to truly call home.

7:30 p.m. $15. Pasant Theatre, Wharton Center, 750 E. Shaw Lane, East Lansing. (517) 432-2000, whartoncenter.com.
