Tonight (March 16, 2013), Pam and I attended a dinner theater at Mom and Dad’s church, Calvary United Methodist in Fort Wayne, Ind. After a swiss steak meal, we enjoyed an hour-long program of song featuring old American songs, the type included in the hypothetical Great American Songbook. Mom was part of the singing cast–probably around 20 people, plus instrumentalists.
They did 30 songs, but most of them were very short. I recognized about a dozen of them, including:
- Love is a Many Splendored Thing
- I Left My Heart in San Francisco
- Three Coins in the Fountain
- Zip-a-Dee Doodah
- Singin’ in the Rain
- The Band Played On
- In the Good Ol’ Summertime
- A Little Bit of Luck.
A very enjoyed, and often humorous, program, and it was obvious that the singers had a great time.Leave a comment
