Acadia Players’ ‘Some Enchanted Evening’ to open tonight
CROWLEY - The Acadia Players will proudly present “Some Enchanted Evening - The Songs of Rodgers and Hammerstein” at the Grand Opera House of the South, located at 505 N. Parkerson Ave. in Crowley, tonight through Sun., May 19.
The songs of Rodgers and Hammerstein are a constant in everyday life. They are sung in the shower, danced to in ballrooms and heard on radios. Audiences still thrill to them on the live stage in their respective shows, and children learn them early on.
The Acadia Players musical production includes favorites from “The Sound of Music,” “Oklahoma,” “Carousel,” “South Pacific,” “The King and I” and many others.
This stunning collection of show tunes places five performers in a theatrical setting — first “backstage” as they prepare for the show, then “onstage” to present a glorious parade of genuine hits.
While allowing the performers an opportunity to explore the songs within their own styles and sensibilities, it offers the audience a glorious parade of genuine hits.
Directed by Logan Frederick, with assistance from Carolyn Patrick, “Some Enchanted Evening” is a heartwarming production that will take you back to scenes from your favorite musicals.
Providing musical direction is Susan Comeaux, assisted at the two-piano score by Judy LeJeune.
Choreographer for the show us Desiree Doucet.
