The Canfield High School Choral Music Dept. will present their annual Dinner Theater on Saturday evening, Jan. 27. The program this year is 100 Years of Broadway.

The evening will start off with the dinner portion beginning at 6 p.m. A V.I.P. Tasting event will feature sampling from local restaurants. At 7:30 p.m. the sampling will be the best-loved songs spanning 100 years of Broadway performances.

The rehearsals for this Saturday's performance has been a rough one. Director Kelly Scurich said it began right after the winter concert.

Isabella Audia and Sam Accordino perform Yankee Doodle Dandee during a rehearsal last week in preparation for this Saturday's (Jan. 27) dinner theater at Canfield High School. The theme of the performance is 100 Years of Broadway, featuring the Select Ensemble Choir.

"We started in December with auditions," Scurich said. "We were looking for singers who could also handle movement."

She said a good group was selected and represented members of the One Octave Higher Female Ensemble, the Chamber Ensemble, and the Concert Choir.

Selected for the Select Ensemble were sopranos Carmel Cerimele, Haley Tura, Cara DeChurch, Allison Leone, Isabella Audia, Alanna Holden, and Kaleigh Ceci. Altos include Sam Morris, Lauren Johnson, Harmeet Kaur, Kate Dysert, Kat Roman, Melissa Dahman, and Emma Kadilak. Bass singers include Troy Tyson, Jonathan Scurich, Victor Labra, Greg Halley, J.P. Freeman, and Haydn Nottingham. Tenors include Jarid Cross, Alex Sanders, Dom DeRamo, Sam Accordino, Stephen Pacheco, and Elijah Mt. Castle.

"Our biggest challenge was snow days," Scurish said.

She said it cut classes to 20 minutes during school when there was a late start. Even with the cancellations and late starts, Scurich feels the group has mastered the performance, which includes duets and solos.

The performance will also include 140 CHS Choir members, who have been rehearsing separately for the past seven weeks.

"All 140 singers and the musicians will have one rehearsal at 5 p.m. Saturday, [before the regular performance]," Scurich said. "We have one shot to get it right."

Tickets are $20 for both dinner and concert, or concert-only tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for students. For more information call 330-702-7128 and a member of Choral Boosters will return the call.
