WTG Broadway Chorus Concert-You Can't Stop the Beat
This year we have chosen music from 4 great Broadway shows. From the Disney musical ‘Beauty And The Beast’, songs we’ve chosen include ‘Be Our Guest’, ‘Belle’, ‘Home’, and ‘Beauty And The Beast’. The current Broadway hit ‘Beautiful, The Carole King Musical’ provides many great songs including ‘On Broadway’, ‘You’ve Got A Friend’, ‘(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman’, ‘One Fine Day’, and many more. Songs chosen from ‘Hairspray’ include ‘Good Morning Baltimore’, ‘Welcome To The 60’s’, ‘Without Love’, and ‘You Can’t Stop The Beat’. And from the terrific Jule Styne/Steven Soundheim megahit ‘Gypsy’ we chose ‘Let Me Entertain You’, ‘Together Wherever We Go’, ‘Everything’s Coming Up Roses’, and several other great songs. Three of these shows have won the Tony Award for either ‘Best Musical’, ‘Best Original Score’ or both and ‘Beautiful’ won the Grammy Award for ‘Best Musical Theater Album’. There is no doubt that this show will delight both chorus members and audiences alike.

Join us on Friday and Saturday, April 28 & 29 at 7:30 pm at the Burton Leavitt Theatre. Tickets are $11 for adults, $9 for students and seniors and $6 for children under 12. Tickets will be available at the door or you can call 860-423-2245 to make a reservation.

Savers Donation Drive
Donate clothing, shoes and other soft goods on April 29th

Community members are invited to donate gently-used clothing, shoes and other soft goods at the Windham Theatre Guild’s second Donation Drive, to be held April 29th from 10 am – 2 pm at the Burton Leavitt Theatre parking lot.

The drive’s goal is to raise $1,000 in funds to support the operations of the Burton Leavitt Theatre. Acceptable donations include clothing, shoes, accessories, linens, books, and small household items (no furniture).

All goods collected through the Donation Drive fundraiser program are sold to Savers, the parent company to great thrift stores like Value Village, Unique, and Savers. They pay us by the pound for every qualifying donation received. In turn, these items help keep their floors freshly stocked.

Savers, Inc. is a privately held global thrift retailer. Through its unique business model of purchasing, reselling and recycling secondhand merchandise, the Savers family of thrift stores benefits more than 150 nonprofit organizations, gives local consumers a smart way to shop, and saves more than 600 million pounds of quality used goods from landfills each year.

MEN

^Reg Willoughby -- Union leader, appears once in "Scrap." Will be doubled with other role or ensemble.
