Preparing for a 'Musical Mystery Tour'

Sunday, April 20, 2008

The Community Theater of Clay County's final dinner show for the 2007-08 season will take place May 2-3.

A Musical Mystery Tour of the World will feature a wind ensemble composed of 23 members from the Brazil Concert Band in a program produced and directed by Matthew S. Huber.

The story plot involved Huber and fellow musician T.J. Sneddon, who are sent to the International Bandmasters Convention held in the principality of Cantstandistan, known for its sulphur pits and record earthquakes among other discretions.

On the way back, Huber and Sneddon can't seem to make the right flight connections and wind up lost throughout the world. As one might guess, each new port of call features a community band, which allows Sneddon to drum and Huber to direct.

Theatergoers will be treated to the vocals of Kendra Kirby of the World Gospel Church.

Veteran character actor Carl McKinney of the CTCC has multiple cameo appearances as the ticket agent in each new location.

John P. Huber, Indiana State University music student, will be featured in Herbert Clarke's version of "The Carnival of Venice."

CTCC official Susan Sneddon is designing dinner for patrons with an international flavor.

The evening will feature music played around the world, including musicians Steve Garlits, Dr. Martin Dixon, Andy Whittington, Dick Gustafson, Jeff Shively, Alice Greenburg, Susan Sneddon, Ralph Stewart, Bill Morthland, John Boruff, Jean Penry, Rhonda Hine, John Penry, Robert Pell, Dr. Miranda Goodale, Betty Niswonger, Darlene Shepard, Brad Ogborn, Ersel E. Burgess and Wayne Parkins.

Pianist Rita Rothrock will provide dinner musical selections.

The buffet dinner will be served at 6:30 p.m. and the Musical Mystery Tour of the World begins at 7:30 p.m.

Reservations are necessary for the dinner and show. Tickets are $25 each and may be purchased at Riddell National Bank or by calling 442-6909.
