THOMASTON — Join Watts Hall Community Players for “Songs of Summer: A Musical Revue/Preview” to be performed live at 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday, July 2 and 3, in Watts Hall at 174 Main Street.

Members of the Players are happy to be singing, acting and dancing again. James Cook of Rockport said, “When we’ve come together to sing after this long pandemic, it’s been impossible not to break out in big smiles. We want to bring those smiles to everybody’s faces.”

Another performer noted, “Extroverts and performers had a rough time when we were going through the worst of the pandemic. To get back together with my Watts Hall friends, belt it out, and dance around is nothing short of euphoric.”

“I’ve been singing in choirs every year since I was nine years old, with only one exception: 2020-2021,” said John Ward of Newcastle. “These last 12 months have seemed to me to be unnatural, so singing again is a blessing, a return to health. We are all grateful to be back at it.”

According to Music Director Sean Fleming, “This show has something for everyone. A barbershop quartet, a pirate troupe, many other Broadway favorites, and surprises await the audience!”

Members of the cast of “Songs of Summer” July 2 and 3, will be fully vaccinated, and the audience will be required to wear masks to keep volunteers, audience members and especially the children, safe.

Doors will open at 6:15 p.m. There is a free-will offering/suggested donation of $10. No advance tickets will be available, so arrive early! A newly installed air conditioning system at Watts Hall will enhance the comfort of the audience, performers and community alike.
