A GRAND NIGHT FOR SINGING is an exciting and joyous musical revue comprised of some of Rodgers and Hammerstein greatest songs, from such musicals, as CAROUSEL, SOUTH PACIFIC, OKLAHOMA,
CINDERELLA, and many others.
A GRAND NIGHT FOR SINGING is an imaginative, dynamic presentation of familiar songs in ways you’ve never before heard them. Imagine "Shall We Dance?" as a comic pas de deux for an assertive beauty and her shy admirer, and "How do you solve a problem like Maria?" by a lovelorn young man. This lavish revue presents a sultry Andrews Sisters-esque "I'm Gonna Wash That Man Right Out-a My Hair," a swingin' "Honeybun" worthy of the Modernaires, and a jazzy "Kansas City" which leaves no question about how terrifically up to date the remarkable songs of Rodgers and Hammerstein are.
Only great singers can make such intriguing music come alive.
Debbie Jenkins and Jim Dalfanso (Beesley’s Point), known regionally for their fabulously successful company “Shaken Not Stirred Players” provide the anchors for the group, and perform “If I Loved You” and “This Nearly Was Mine.”
Jodi Rose (Margate), founder of “Opera on the Go,” has performed in such operas as “La Boheme” “Die Fledermaus” as well as musical theater, “Guys and Dolls” and “Camelot,” and sings “It Might As Well Be Spring.”
Carli Smith (Somers Point) mostly recently starred in “Aida” and was seen in Fool Moon’s “The Fantasticks”, sings “A Wonderful Guy.”
Matthew Sheppard (Blackwood), has performed in “South Pacific” and “Triumph of Love” and sings “Love, Look Away.”
Debbie Rowland (Somers Point), known area-wide for her creative talents, is the musical director and will play the piano for performances.
