The Crawfordsville Community Chorus will present “Another Op’nin, A Lot of Shows: A Musical Story of Broadway,” at 2:30 p.m. Sunday at First Christian Church, 211 S. Walnut St. All ages are welcome, admission is free, and a reception follows the program.
The scene: A young actor who is living in the Midwest corresponds with her grandmother, who is retired from the musical theater stage. In their letters to each other, they write about a number of Broadway shows and their “showtunes.” As their correspondence unfolds, the songs they write of are brought to life by the 40 members of the Crawfordsville Community Chorus, in full chorus “production numbers,” in featured solos, and with a surprise or two.
Richard Bowen directs the show; Cheryl Everett accompanies; soloists are Mary Taylor, Dustin Gardner and Kurt Homann. Reagan Minnette dances; Betsy Strain presents the video. Script by Alice Phillips. The church entrance in the Pike Street/Walnut Street parking lot includes an elevator to the sanctuary.
The Chorus committee includes chairman Bill Burke, vice chair Janice Clauser, secretary Sheila Evans, treasurer Debbie Swanson, members Sue Fain, Phillips, Judith Lynn Smith. The chorus is supported by patrons and The Montgomery County Community Foundation. New singers are invited to join as each project begins.
