Dr. Janet Barton Speer, artistic director of LMC Summer Theatre and director of “A Grand Night for Singing,” said, “This is the second time I have directed this show, and I couldn’t be more excited! Taking songs from famous Rodgers and Hammerstein shows, like ‘The Sound of Music,’ ‘South Pacific,’ ‘The King and I,’ ‘Oklahoma,’ ‘State Fair’ and many more, the writers created a new territory. Singers and dancers put a new twist to these old favorites. Tuxes, beautiful gowns, a small orchestra and beautiful music performed by outstanding talents make this show a visual and audible feast.”
