      JUST A TASTE OF WHAT I TOOK AWAY....by Barbara Biddison

      all togetherThe first rehearsal on the Wellsboro High School stage was on the Wednesday night before ALL TOGETHER NOW! opens on Saturday, November 13.  These Hamilton-Gibson performers have, of course, been rehearsing elsewhere.  Now it's time to transfer all that to the space where the two (yes, only 2) performances will happen.  Most of these actors are not new to the stage, so they dig right in.  And the guys way up there in the tech booth do the same.  This show consists of musical numbers from hit Broadway shows, but this time the singers and dancers are people we know.  They live around here and perform whenever they can!
      We saw MAMMA MIA a couple years ago, and we remember Karin Knaus.  Here she is singing "She Used to Be Mine."  Wow!   And we all saw Ian Brennan soloing on the Green for Town Band Concerts..  He's back!! soloing for this show.  Gracie Bishop is one of the younger ones, and I loved watching her sing with the HG Young Women in that recent concert.  Here she's singing with a few others in "Matchmaker" from FIDDLER ON THE ROOF.  Our children know  Molly Cary as their music teacher in the Wellsboro elementary schools, and now they can hear her solo, "Beautiful City" from GODSPELL..  Theresa Delmotte goes all the way back to Maria in THE SOUND OF MUSIC, and here does a beautiful "Children Will Listen" from INTO THE WOODS..  Tim Wilbourne is relatively new to me.  His powerful voice brings us "Empty Chairs, Empty Tables."  I'm not giving it all away.  There is so much more.  I can hardly wait to see the whole musical show.
      This opportunity comes to us royalty-free from Music Theatre International.  Picture community theatres world-wide performing this show on the same weekend as we in Wellsboro are.  The whole world will ring with music.  And we in the audience will be part of that.
      [Performances this Saturday at 7:30, and Sunday at 2:30 at the Wellsboro Area High School. Tickets available at the door.]
