A musical at a retirement community!

Home » Arts & Entertainment » A musical at a retirement community!

The statement needs to be read aloud with a hint of sarcasm.  That’s the response I have received as I speak with others (those outside the confines of our community of course) about how impressed I have been with the annual Park Springs’ musical which was performed this week for the fifth year in a row.  I paraphrased an old Oldsmobile ad campaign and said “this is not your father’s retirement community!”  Park Springs represents the new generation of retirement communities and our Members embody that spirit well, as evidenced by the musical and many more pursuits.

The musical entitled “Here We Go Again” is produced and directed by Marvin Himmel, a Member of Park Springs.   Except for those parts performed by the Vista Grove Dancers, who do a fantastic job, all cast and crew are Members of the Atlanta area retirement community.  In total, cast, and crew number more than 40, not including the Park Springs Art Department who created much of the scenery.  If you weren’t in the musical, than you were most certainly there to watch; this year’s performance sold out all four nights.  The auditorium in Park Springs Community Hall seats over 100.

The program this year includes Broadway hits such as “Annie Get Your Gun,” “My Fair Lady,” “South Pacific,” “Oklahoma,” and many more.  The photos I took with my own phone don’t do the show any justice, but I wanted to include some visual.  I look forward to posting some of the professional photography taken of the show, as well as airing a video on You Tube after the first of the year.

Thank you Marvin, cast and crew as well as all the Members of Park Springs who, as the program aptly states, “make Park Springs a very unique, valued retirement community.”

“Thank you so much for my supper front row ticket to the delightful production of Here We Go Again, by the Park Springs Players. It was truly spectacular, filled with an extraordinary level of energy! The players were clearly having great fun and that great sense of enjoyment was certainly experience by the audience throughout the performance. Thanks again for a very memorable evening of fun, great music and meeting new friends!!  Very best wishes to you and to your family for a very Merry Christmas and for all good things in the New Year!”

-Dick, Park Springs Member
