The choir is seeking a Master of Ceremonies willing to have a bit of fun in the spotlight, an “Ed Sullivan”-type. Known as “The Great Stone Face”, Sullivan introduced hundreds of new stars to the limelight, including the Beatles, the Doors, and Motown greats like the Jackson 5. Have a suit? Can you cross your arms in Sullivan’s trademark awkward stance? Bear a passing resemblance? Why not have a little fun that weekend! A written script will be provided to introduce the songs from the 70s. Online videos may help with a simple impersonation of Sullivan’s manner and gestures. It’s all in good fun!. “Ed” would have to be available to come to a dress rehearsal on the Monday evening prior to the concerts, plus do the two concerts on Sat. May 5th at 7:00 pm and Sun. May 6th at 2:30 pm, at the Oliver United Church.
Choir director, Alice DeRoche, would appreciate hearing from interested “Ed”s by March 31st. Email: derochel @ shaw.ca or Tel: 250-492-4159.
