COLTON - Antegropelos. The word means “waterproof leggings.” That was a word missed at the National Spelling Bee event. But, the following event is not to be missed.
The Sunday Rock Legacy presents the Tony Award winning musical ‘25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee” at the air conditioned Colton-Pierrepont School Auditorium at 7 p.m. July 17 and July 18. On July 20, there is a 3 p.m. matinee. $10 adults. $5 students. Open seating. Handicapped accessible.
Community actors and singers bring out their love for “live” musical comedy as they sing, dance and create quirky characters for the audience to enjoy. Kimberly Busch, vocal teacher at the Canton High School and director of Canton High School musicals is the director of this show. The cast includes Andrea Ellison, Luke Frazer, Morgan Hastings, Ivan Jukic, Anna Monroe, Rachel Moses, Bill Riehl, Amy Stickles, and Karen Wells.
A unique aspect of the show is that volunteers from the audience can go on stage and try out their spelling skills.
Pursuing projects of historical, educational and theatrical interest, the Sunday Rock Legacy is a grassroots organization combining the Colton Historical Society, the Colton- Pierrepont Central School and the Grasse River Players.
This year’s theme is ABRACADABRA –Schoolhouse Magic. After this theatrical production, members of the Sunday Rock Legacy will present the history of one room schoolhouses at student assemblies.
Major community sponsors for the production are Brookfield Renewable Energy Group, Canton- Potsdam Hospital and North Country Savings Bank.
The 2014 Sunday Rock Legacy project is, in part, made possible with funds from the Decentralization Program, New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo, the NYS Legislature and administered by the St. Lawrence County Arts Council.
