The ‘LTM Music Revue – Songbook!’ is coming to Cheney Hall on Aug. 9, for just two weekends. This special program is a musical tribute to the great songs from the American songwriters such as the Gershwins, Cole Porter, Duke Ellington and Irving Berlin. The Little Theatre of Manchester is the resident company of Cheney Hall, located at 177 Hartford Road.
“This production is designed for our older audience. The songs are sure to bring back wonderful memories. We are starting our first half with a tribute to the Hollywood films and songs, while the second half is dedicated to Broadway. There will be love songs as well as dysfunctional love song,” said Marge Patefield, who is the show’s director and is also featured as part of the entertainment. “There are over 200 pieces of music in the show. Some of our selections are ‘Hurray for Hollywood,’ ‘Get Happy’ and ‘Boulevard of Broken Dreams.’ We have a wonderful cast with magnificent voices. The cast members are Christopher Berrien, Dacia Ball, Alexis Derr, Christine Gill, Glenn Gordon, Maria Grove Julie M. Martini, Jim Metzler, Marge Patefield and Mike Zizka.”
There will be cocktails served at this cabaret-style event. The wait staff will be in cocktail dresses and suits. The theme is going back to the 1920s through the 1960s. “It’s sure to be a great evening out,” said Patefield. “I know people will be glad they took in the show.”
