The event features company member Kristi Szczepanek as host, and presents song stylings by other company members, including Anna Schutz, plus some special guests.

Film News: New ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ Trailer Released
CHICAGO – Holy exploding football field Batman! The new trailer for “The Dark Knight Rises” has officially been released from Warner Bros., and let’s just say there is a lot to look at. Unlike the teaser trailer that premiered before Harry Potter last summer, this new trailer gives us a full look at the cast of characters and some of the unbelievable sequences Christopher Nolan has ready for us in his third and final Batman film.
The trailer features Christian Bale as Batman, Tom Hardy as Bane, Anne Hathaway as Selina Kyle/Catwoman, Michael Caine as Alfred, and numerous other performers such as Jospeh Gordon-Levitt and Marion Cotillard. Complete with the Batcopter, fighting sequences between Batman and Bane, dancing between Bruce Wayne and Selina Kyle, a prison breakout, and the craziest touchdown you have ever seen, “The Dark Knight Rises” definitely looks like Nolan wants to end his Batman run with a boom and a bang.
If you didn’t see the trailer this past weekend, feast your eyes on the newest look into “The Dark Knight Rises” below:
