BELMONT — This year's "Autumn Leaves" concert at The Music Clinic Theatre Company will feature the vocal stylings of "The Rockin' Daddios".
The popular trio starring Angelo Gentile, Bo Guyer and Jim Rogato has performed their Golden Oldies "feel good music" throughout the Lakes Region to wide acclaim.
"The music of the fifties and sixties conjures up many special memories for those of us commonly referred to as Baby Boomers", said Bo Guyer. "Music from a bygone era, these tunes bring us back to a more innocent time of our lives. You'll hear songs like "Book of Love", "Blue Moon", "Teenager in Love" and "Little Star" to name a few. The songs are family friendly and guaranteed to warm your heart."
The concert will also feature actress Pat Langille in the short play "Claire". Pat has worked in professional and top-notch community theaters throughout New England. She brings "Claire" direct from a recent production at Actors Theatre Playhouse. The show is a tour de force one-act therapy session, in which the character, Claire, an actress, has been driven over the edge by the heartbreak of show business.
"This is the first time we have included a theatre piece in "Autumn Leaves", said Artistic Director Laurie McDaniel. "We're amazed by Pat's talent, and we can't wait for the audience to see her in "Claire".
Laurie McDaniel will perform songs from folk to broadway, and will include the popular "Autumn Leaves". Laurie has worked in theatre for four decades and has been director of the Music Clinic Theatre Company since 2010.
"Autumn Leaves" opens on Friday, October 18 at 7 p.m. and continues Saturday, October 19 at 7 p.m. and Sunday, October 20 with a 2 p.m. matinee. Reservations are strongly encouraged. Tickets are $18. Call 603-677-2777 to reserve seating.
