MOUNT GILEAD, N.C. – The small town of Mount Gilead, N.C. is a hub for visual and performing artists. Many grew up there while others moved into the area. They share a common love of art – in all forms. So they’ve been busy painting sets, making costumes, learning dance routines and practicing high notes for the upcoming show, “Give My Regards to Broadway.”
The show will be held on Friday, August 28 at 7:30 p.m. and on Saturday, August 29 at 2:30 p.m. at the Leah Levine Memorial Auditorium on School Street in downtown Mount Gilead.
Admission is $10 for adults and $5 for children under 12 years old. Proceeds will go to the non-profit Mount Gilead Community Concert Association.
“The show will include a lot of the old favorites,” said director Liz LaRosa. The 28-member cast will sing songs from Les Miserable, Phantom of the Opera, Oliver, Oklahoma, Porgy and Bess, My Fair Lady, Bye Bye Birdie and more. “We’ve had a lot of fun putting this show together.”
The show is produced by Johnny Almond, director of the concert association.
