HCPAC remembers 50 years of musicals

Special to The Monitor
ATHENS–The Henderson County Performing Arts Center (HCPAC) is in its final week of rehearsals before the opening of All Those Musicals: a 50 Year Revue.
The show features songs everyone will remember from more than 20 Broadway musicals performed at HCPAC over the last 50 years.
The shows represented, however, are only a fraction of the ones actually produced over that time period.
“It was hard to choose which songs to put in and which ones would have to be left out,” HCPAC Executive Director Marcia Colbert said.
“It just wasn’t possible to showcase every single show,” she added. “There were over 60 musicals produced at HCPAC since 1964, so, we just did the best we could and we think it is a fantastic show everyone will enjoy.”
The ‘walk down Musical Memory Lane’ will showcase songs from Fiddler on the Roof, The King and I, Camelot, The Sound of Music, Oklahoma!, South Pacific, Singin’ in the Rain and many, many more.
Audiences will recognize these wonderful gems and be tempted to sing along with the entertainers.
Performances are at 7:30 p.m. Thursday-Saturday, Oct. 16-18 and 23-25, 2 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 19.
The opening night reception is at 6 p.m.
Tickets are $17 for adults, $12 for students and children. Group rates are available for 10 or more at $12 per person.
To make reservations, call (903) 675-3908.
HCPAC is a non-profit 501(C)(3) corporation located at 400 Gibson Rd. in Athens.
