Second World War recalled musically

Following theatre performances of My Heart Is Over There, musical director Gloria Herauf has agreed to feature the original cast in concert.

THE ORIGINAL CAST of My Heart is Over There will perform twice Nov. 9 at the Comox United Church.

Following sold-out dinner theatre performances of My Heart Is Over There, musical director Gloria Herauf has agreed to feature the original cast in concert.

Well-known in musical theatre in the Comox Valley, Jacqueline Lambeth (Peggy Rogers), Maggie Enwright (Nell), Ross Griffith-Cochrane (Mac) and other members of the original cast guarantee a time of pure entertainment.

Using her extensive experience and talent, Herauf has created a wonderful Second World War military musical revue set in an overseas USO radio show.

Favourites like the Andrew Sisters’ Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy or Don’t Sit Under The Apple Tree, along with Vera Lynn’s White Cliffs of Dover or Wish Me Luck, are sure to have the audience taking that Sentimental Journey down memory lane.

Performances take place Wednesday (Nov. 9) at 1:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. at the Comox United Church at 250 Beach Dr. in Comox.

Admission is by donation at the door (suggested value $10), with all funds raised going to Comox United Church chancellery renovations.
