A Musical Extravaganza Benefits Five Charities [VIDEO]
If you love song and dance, this is one community show you don't want to miss!
For the past eight years the Bangor Noontime Rotary Club has coordinated this musical extravaganza as a way to provide the community with an entertaining show while raising money for charities.
I've had the honor for the past three shows now to work with an amazing cast of characters on stage. Their creativity, talent, and appreciation for fun and team work make this show a real treat for the audience. "They look like they're having such fun," is a common statement heard following each show.
It is fun, but it's also a lot of hard work and commitment for cast, pit (band), and crew involved in staging the event. They are part of your community too, working by day, then rehearsing on nights and weekends.
The show is produced by Rotarian Roger George and performers this year are under the direction of Heather Astbury-Libby and John Haskell. This year's Stage Manager is Emilie Madden.
There will only be two performances this coming weekend of the 8th Annual Music Off Broadway performance presented by the Bangor Noontime Rotary Club. Peaks Auditorium at Bangor High School on Saturday, April 13, 2013 at 7:30 pm and Sunday, April 14, 2103 at 3pm.
Proceeds from the show benefit five different charities serving the region. They are Big Brothers/Big Sisters of Midcoast Maine, Community Health and Counseling Services, Jobs for Maine Graduates, Ronald McDonald House of Bangor, and Penquis Child Development.
We hope you'll come enjoy the show!
