NEWPORT –Now Playing Newport, the local Vermont concert series that has delighted audiences in the Northeast Kingdom over the past five years, will be presenting its final production on Saturday.
The show will take place January 12, at 7:00 p.m. at the United Church of Newport on Third Street.
This grand finale is in concert with the MAC Center for the Arts performing Liberated Libretto: A Frolic with Gilbert and Sullivan.
Anita Morin, Sally Rivard, Allen Cubit, Ron St John III and Lynn Leimer with Janice Luce on piano, will showcase the humor and history of the dynamic Gilbert and Sullivan duo with favorites such as Modern Major General from Pirates of Penzance, Three Little Maids from the MIKADO and When I Got Out of Doors from Patience.
The revue captures the satire as well as the musicality that made the operettas famous.
All proceeds will benefit the MAC’s ADA upgrade to their venue. Tickets for the event are available at the door.
The Now Playing Newport series will be staging no future shows.
Series Director Jim McKimm says closing out the series was a long thought decision.
He thanks all series partners over the years, those who attended the programs, as well as St. Mark’s Episcopal Church and the United Church of Newport.Are you on Instagram? Cool. So are we. CLICK HERE to follow us for a behind the scenes look at Newport Dispatch.
