Do you know your musicals? Here is a test.Saturday night, January 11 at Our Lady of the Mountains Parish, a fundraiser was held-dinner and a night of local talent performing musicals.
Mr. Joe Laird, our parish and school's head maintenance person, organized the event and was the emcee.
The first act was "The Second Time Around" sung by Carol who is also in our church choir.
Joyce and Elia tap dance to " 42nd Street".
Bill and Stan sang "Grand Old Flag" !
Father A presides
Father A dances with the bride.

Barry and Tess tap danced "Trashing the Camp".
ON THE GOOD SHIP LOLLIPOP!
How can we ever forget Shirley Temple?
Our pastor, Father Ariel "Father A", sang To Dream the Impossible Dream.
He did it to highlight that when he arrived almost 4 years ago to the parish, there was no rectory for the pastor ( a rented house only) and the school had a debt of over $400,000. As of this night, the parish is ready to break ground for the rectory and the school debt is less than $40,000 and will be burned this Fall. Dreams are possible if one keeps dreaming and believes in the Almighty God and the generosity of His people.
Bobby sang "Wandering Star" .
Mr. Joe sang "There Is Nothing Like A Dame"!
Debbie and Zumba Group dance to "Beggin".
I had the great job of pulling the curtain for the evening. It was the best spot to see the show up close and personal, to help with the props for each act and all the funny, crazy things that happen behind stage in between acts.
I was, I know, the comic relief as Act #1. You see Lambchops sings as I operate his mouth.
We had a full house for our show and a great time was had by all. What a variety of musicals, wouldn't you say? Did you get 100% on naming them all?
