Through July 8 — Sister Act at New Theatre Restaurant
When disco diva Deloris witnesses a murder, she is put in protective custody in a convent! Using her unique singing talent, Deloris breathes new life into the community but blows her cover in the process. Soon, the gang gives chase. From the composer of BEAUTY AND THE BEAST, THE LITTLE MERMAID and more, SISTER ACT was nominated for five Tony Awards including Best Musical.
July 8 — Rehearsals continue for Madrigalia Bar Nonne.
This isn’t an open to the public thing, but interested singers are always welcome to come and join rehearsals, and see if they might want to try out for this select group of period a capella musical performers. Rehearsals continue most Sundays through August, and then the group sings daily at the Kansas City Renaissance Festival at its grounds in Bonner Springs. Anyone interested in joining a rehearsal or the group, drop me a line and I will get you the necessary contact information. I have been singing with this group since 1999.
July 14 — Avondale United Methodist Church Book Club
The club meets at 10 a.m. in the Church Library, and is open to anyone that wants to come and discuss, or listen to the discussion of the book slated for the month. For July it is Truman by David McCullough. Well, the second half of the book; being such a monumentally large biography, we have chosen to split our discussion – and the book – into two parts. Since McCullough divides the book into six parts, we discussed his parts 1 to 3 last month, with parts 4 to 6 in July.
