Around The Roundabout

Only another couple of weeks and it will be Music Mania time again in my small Ontario town.
This is the 49th year of Music Mania... next year we will celebrate the BIG FIVE OH!
This year, the annual Variety Show will be taking our audience on a virtual trip around the British Isles with song, dance and comedy skits from England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales.

We've been planning since September and rehearsing since January, and finally the show is starting to come together. Some of the songs... Holiday, A Foggy Day in London Town, Hippy Hippy Shake, Ticket to Ride, Mull of Kintyre, and many more.
This year I'm involved in costumes, choreography, chorus, and I'm Co-Producer, so no wonder I never have any spare time. Tickets are on sale at some of the local stores.... if you live in the area, I hope to see you at the show!

I just read about all your troubles! Poor you!

Well, I could hardly make the trip over there, but I expect of course a video of the complete show!

Wow - you do have your hands full! Hippy hippy shakes? Oh my gawd! I haven't even thought about that song in ages and ages. Does it ever bring back memories! Wish I lived in your area. I'd come to your show!

No dust is settling on you, that's for sure!
You know that boring desert drive you did from LA to Vegas? You drove right through my hometown. Pathetic, isn't it?

Hilary said...

Ah good for you. I know how much you enjoyed yourself last year. Best of luck this time around too. And I hope your computer woes are solved.

sounds like a great event!

Golly a year gone by already, where does the time go to!! Good luck with the production or should I say 'Break a Leg'!!

Jeanette said...

Wow you are a busy Lady . I hope your production goes well and is a sell out...

Sounds like your plate is really full.
Wish I could attend your Music Mania. Its sounds like a blast. No one really knows all the time and effort that's put into one of these productions until they have done it themselves.
Hang in there you (all) will be fabulous.

So I'm looking at those people seated in front of the stage, and I wonder... Which one is Simon Cowell?
