Some Enchanted Evening ® Opens at Napa Valley College

Timeless Songs of Rodgers and Hammerstein in the Spotlight

October 16-25, 2015

 

Napa, Calif. (September 28, 2015) –Napa Valley Conservatory Theater, in collaboration with Music Napa Valley, opens a two-week run of Some Enchanted Evening, featuring the timeless songs of Broadway's iconic duo Rodgers and Hammerstein on October 16, 2015 at 8 p.m. in the Performing Arts Center Main Theater at Napa Valley College. This high energy and wonderfully entertaining show will run through October 25.

Rodgers and Hammerstein teamed up to create the enduring hits of Broadway's golden age, including South Pacific, The King and I, Oklahoma, and Cinderella.   Napa Valley director Richard Rossi, assisted by choreographer Pam Rogers and music director Dr. Eve-Anne Wilkes, presents their well-known and well-loved tunes in a lively two-act revue that will enchant audiences of all ages.  Featuring a full chorus of 40 singers in costume, song and dance come to life in favorites from musical theater's high points with "People Will Say We're In Love,"  "There's Nothing Like a Dame," "Whistle a Happy Tune," and "In My Own Little Corner."

Having directed theater at Napa Valley College over the past 30 years, Rossi is thrilled to present a fresh dramatic experience with a multi-generational cast of talented, dedicated, and hard-working musicians and dancers.  As musical director, Wilkes promises that Some Enchanted Evening® will be non-stop singing and dancing guaranteed to delight the audience and keep young and old singing the songs long after the curtain closes.

Napa sopranos Kim Markovich and Suzi Gilbert are featured in "Hello, Young Lovers" and "Something Wonderful" from The King and I.  Napa Valley College faculty member Ted Von Pohle sings the baritone solo "This Nearly Was Mine" from South Pacific.

Tickets are on sale now and at the door, $15 - $25.  Please visit napavalleytheater.org or call the Box Office at 707-256-7500. Visit musicnapavalley.org for more information on the 2015-16 season of music and theater, the Masters Concert Series, and degrees in the performing arts.
