Lees-McRae Summer Theatre presents A Grand Night for Singing July 16-20

After a great production of Kiss Me, Kate, the cast and crew of Lees-McRae Summer Theatre are excited to begin their next show, A Grand Night for Singing. This production will be performed July 16-20 at 7 p.m., and July 17, 19 and 20 at 2 p.m.

Dr. Janet Barton Speer, artistic director of Summer Theatre and director of A Grand Night for Singing, said, “This is the second time I have directed this show and I couldn’t be more excited! Taking songs from famous Rodgers and Hammerstein shows like The Sound of Music, South Pacific, King and I, Oklahoma, State Fair and many more, the writers created a new territory. Singers and dancers put a new twist to these old favorites. Tuxes, beautiful gowns, a small orchestra and beautiful music performed by outstanding talents make this show a visual and audible feast.”

The Summer Theatre Box Office opens June 16 and is located in the lobby of Hayes Auditorium. It is open Monday-Friday 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.  Show day hours are 10 a.m. – 3 p.m. and 5 – 7 p.m. The Box Office phone number is 828.898.8709.  Tickets can be ordered by sending your ticket request to Tickets, Lees-McRae College Summer Theatre, PO Box 128, Banner Elk, NC  28604.
