On Tuesday, November 7, The Drama Section of the Manor Club, presented a Military Musical Show entitled, “Songs from the Home Front - Radio Hour” honoring local Veterans.
Written and directed by Mauro Contrastano, a cast of 14 were all dressed in authentic military attire. The audience was brought back to the 1940’s, under the musical direction of Donna Cribari, performing such songs as, “This is the Army Mr. Jones,” “Long Ago and Far Away,” “Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy,” and “I’ll Be Seeing You,” just to name a few.
The one hour and 15-minute show was a tribute to those who served and to those who waited for their return.
A packed house, open to the public, was filled with Veterans as they laughed, cheered and at times shed a tear or two.
A band played military songs before and after the show for all to enjoy. “God Bless America” closed the show, sung by the entire cast and audience. The celebration continued with High Tea in the Main Dining Room with an elaborate and festive red, white and blue Dessert Table.
