Fundraiser for EOH, NAHOF planned
Hugh C. Humphreys will present “The Music Room,” at 8 p.m. on Saturday, June 21, and at 3 p.m. on Sunday, June 22, at the Earlville Opera House. Humphreys wrote the play about a decade ago in response to a request from a group in Utica for him to write a play for a celebration at SUNY IT. According to a media release. The author wraps his love of opera and his penchant for humor around the story of a rather ill-mannered boy who, during the depression, is sent to live with his aunt in Utica. There he becomes acquainted with two young ladies who aspire to be opera singers. Humphreys, himself, plays the boy who narrates the funny one act play. The two women will be portrayed by vocalists Jenni Larchar and Meena Nair Conant. The play is directed by April (Shannon) Sweeney, Associate Professor of English in the University Theater at Colgate University. The evening promises to bring new fans to this talented local author through this enjoyable and amusing production.
The second portion of the evening,which Humphreys calls “The Other Stories,” will include music, drama and poetry, by local performers, including the Max Alden Smith, mayor of Oneida.
Humphreys has dedicated this production as a fundraiser for the Earlville Opera House and the National Abolition Hall of Fame and Museum. Tickets are $15 and $13 for Earlville Opera House and National Abolition Hall of Fame and Museum members and students are discounted to $10. The Earlville Opera House is 18 E. Main St. in Earlville.
