Event raises funds for Truro’s Spot­light the­atre pro­gram

Truro Daily News - - NOVA SCOTIA -

The New Year was cel­e­brated a lit­tle early as peo­ple gath­ered for a fun mu­si­cal per­for­mance at the Marigold Cul­tural Cen­tre.

On Dec. 28, alumni and in­struc­tors from the Spot­light Mu­si­cal The­atre pro­gram brought hu­mour and mu­sic to the stage when they took part in A Very Merry New Year.

The show was a pay-what-you-can event and raised $700 for the the­atre pro­gram.

The script, writ­ten by Margot Bé­gin, was based on hol­i­day spe­cials where friends come to visit, and ev­ery­one gath­ers around the pi­ano and shares mu­sic. The mu­si­cal se­lec­tions ranged from tra­di­tional hol­i­day favourites to pieces from past Spot­light shows and other the­atre per­for­mances.

An­drew Mor­risey, who has been per­form­ing in the­atre in Mon­treal, was in town for Christ­mas and played the part of host.

Bé­gin di­rected the show and Rachel O’brien was mu­si­cal di­rec­tor.
