A GRAND NIGHT FOR SINGING will delight audiences at the Dayton Playhouse from January 5 through January 15. In addition to the normal Friday through Sunday performances, this presentation will also include special Thursday performances.
Veteran Playhouse artist, Richard Croskey, is directing and choreographing the play. The cast features talented vocalists Matthew Bone, Carol Chatfield, Kathy Clark, Patricia Dipasquale Drul and Tom Lehmann.
Rodgers & Hammerstein’s A GRAND NIGHT FOR SINGING is an evening of music and romance. The musical review explores the broad spectrum of romantic relationships by way of more than thirty Rodgers & Hammerstein songs. Each of the team’s musicals is represented. The songs have all been placed in fresh theatrical settings, strung together so that the review “grows up” emotionally. The show is constructed as an emotional journey beginning with young infatuation and the awakening of real love, through the touching and funny complexities of commitment and marriage, the joys of parenthood, and finally, the power of enduring love.
The book for A Grand Night for Singing was written by Walter Bobbie with music by Rodgers, lyrics by Hammerstein and musical arrangements by Fred Wells.
Performances will be Thursday through Sunday, January 5-15. All performances are at 8:00 p.m. except Sundays, which are at 2:00 p.m. Tickets are $15 for adults, $14 for seniors and $10 for students.
