Georgia Ensemble Theater Lions Night Out – “Almost Heaven: John Denver’s America
Musical Written and Adapted by Peter Glazer
Georgia Ensemble Theatre’s 21st season will open with a celebration of the music by America’s beloved open-hearted troubadour, John Denver. His songs make up much of the soundscape of the 60’s and 70’s, with their honesty, passion, and love of nature and mankind. Twenty-nine of Denver’s songs, including “Rocky Mountain High,” “Sunshine on my Shoulders,” “Annie’s Song,” “Leaving on a Jet Plane,” “Calypso” and more are rediscovered and reinvented for our GET audience in this nostalgic and exciting musical. “A winning musical revue! … The show pays excellent tribute to an artist who remains great at making people feel good.” – Variety.
This event has been a huge success in the last three years and we look forward to that being the case this year. Our first event will be held on Tuesday, September 3. Because we don’t have a meeting before this event, President Jonathan Crooks is encouraging all members to notify friends and family that tickets will be available at the Lions table in the lobby of the theater on that night. Tickets are $10 a piece ($9 of which goes to the club!)We only have 60 tickets made available to us, so it’s wise to make your reservations early. You can call or email Lion Past President Jonathan at: firstname.lastname@example.org or 770.993.2397.
