This is MUST SEE, people!! Get thee to the Bankhead!!!

I went tonight and was amazed at the talent and energy of these young people. It's Broadway quality in the Tri-Valley!!! Gaaarunteed!!!

It was 2 solid hours of non-stop entertainment. No intermission and you wouldn't even notice if I didn't tell you. It was so fast paced and attention grabbing it was over before you realized time was flying by.

Donna Rapa-Olsen is a friend and an accomplished musical theatre performer, dancer, choreographer and singer. She's making her directorial debut in this show and probably has found a new career direction. This show was so well cast, choreographed and tightly timed, as I said.. was Broadway quality.

I'm not gay... not that there's anything wrong with that... but, even the gays in the audience were impressed! And you know how 'fussy' they are!

Seriously... put your parcel tax and babysitting threads down for a couple of hours and see something much more entertaining.

8pm Fri's and Sat's and 2pm Sun's for the rest of this weekend and the next two. You could make a real event out of it and try the new Carver's hofbrau/restaurant across the street. You can't beat the senior dinner [no age requirement]. More than most people could eat [except me] for $8.95 as I recall.

Tickets online or at the door.. check their website ahead. I bought my tickets a month ago and as I recall they were $38 and they have cheaper ones. I was 3rd row center and it was just outstanding. Lemme know how you liked it. I'll pass comments along to Donna and the cast!
