Great opportunity this Sunday, May 4, at TCA to see special concert
To the Editor,
Many of us who sing the Rodgers and Hammerstein songs may not realize that this is the 70th year of their first joint Broadway production, “Oklahoma!.” Through the years their songs have become such standards that they’re our old friends. The Tecumseh Pops Orchestra and Community Chorus will present twenty of their songs from Broadway including Carousel, South Pacific, The King and I, State Fair and The Sound of Music in a one-time show this Sunday afternoon, May 4 at 4 p.m. at the Tecumseh Center for the Arts. This is a very expensive production that really deserves a full-house audience. More than $9,000 and 1,500 hours of practice time from nearly 100 people are invested in this production. Ticket prices are kept low purposely to attract a large crowd, so we could not possibly produce this show without the generous support of donors and sponsors. Thank them for making this possible.
People are quick to criticize the theater for its reduction in the number of national touring shows, but it all comes down to the basic economics of the programs. Larger crowds give us greater hopes for more future opportunities. Please support us in one of our best shows yet.
