21 years ago, Carol Allen was staging her first Spring-time concert to be put on by a group of local singers and musicians. Little did she know that it would blossom into a bi-annual concert experience involving over 100 singers/actors with orchestra, full costuming and props, and thousands of audience participants! To celebrate her 21st year, the theme is “Stage and Screen” with music and memories you will love hearing again!
Besides the 100 voices from soprano to bass, there is a core group of musicians at each rehearsal which includes: percussion Paul Clark, bass Ben Scarborough, clarinet Jeff Smith, organ Deanna Spraggins, and on keyboard Ken Hanushek and Denise Stuart. During performances, with the addition of a professional horn section, ‘Stage and Screen’ will be much more than singing. There will also be a dancer plus comedic touches to enhance the musical selections. Nine nuns bring “Sister Act” to life, and in “Be Our Guest” from ‘Beauty and the Beast’, a very French ‘Luimiere’ will steal your heart. ‘Stage and Screen’ will truly be an entertaining, enjoyable and memorable experience for everyone and all ages who attends!
During a fun and informal KSST Good Morning Show interview, this group of long-time friends joked and cut up about pre-concert antics by singers who are also ‘real characters’. Their light-heartedness is contagious, and so expect to laugh, clap your hands, dance in the aisles and otherwise embrace this Spring’s ‘Stage and Screen’ concert! Tickets are $15 each for adults and $5 for children 12 and under. Get tickets at www.singerscount.org, at local banks and from Society members, and at the door for either of two performances, Saturday May 4 at 7pm and Sunday May 5 at 2pm. The concert will be held at the SSHS Auditorium of the Civic Center in Sulphur Springs, Texas.
