Thank you to cast and crew for the magnifico performance of Finding A Wife For Gino.
You did a stellar job — the music was great, the Chicken Dance was crazy, and of course everyone was so happy when Gino finally found his wife!

Calling All Singers!

We’re searching for singers to make Rekindle 2017 a terrific beginning to the Christmas season! Practices are on Wed evenings, 7 – 9, until Rekindle (Saturday December 2). There are three songs to learn — “Dominick the Italian Christmas Donkey,” “A Moose In A Maple Tree” and “Welcome Christmas” from How the Grinch Stole Christmas , all easy to find on Youtube.
We will be on the stage in the square this year, so I’m looking for ideas that avoid the “Park’n’Bark” syndrome that afflicts choruses. Let’s do something completely different!
For more info, including song sheets and music, contact Karen [email protected] (rlop NULL.rekindle null@null gmail NULL.com)
