WHAT A SHOW!
I sure am glad I saw the Residents’ Show. I had never been to a Residents’ Show, and from what people told me who had, it may have been the best ever. I thought it was fantastic.
It’s hard for me to believe that our seniors could have put on such a professional, excellent performance. The singing was great. There was hardly a word sung off key. There was a great deal of action and there were also poignant moments. The six dancers were terrific. I couldn’t get over how well the show was choreographed.
There were songs from my youth but also songs from my dad’s era, songs I remember from playing his phonograph records on our old Victrola.
Often, when only one, two, or four or five people were singing, a large group of the other singers and dancers were in the background behind them. Sometimes they sang as a chorus, but at other times they were just there, admiring their peers who were singing. It was heartwarming to see their encouraging expressions.
What a great show!
