The Dr. Victor R. Small Cultural Center will once again be where the action is from 3-5 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 25, when 15 plus musicians-theater people gather to perform in “A Musical Marathon.”
The singers will be traveling from Raleigh, Richmond, Cary, and several Sampson County localities to present a Musical Marathon. The public is invited to come and hear or greet these former voice students of Barbara Taylor, and thespians associated with past theater productions.
Throughout the past, the Small House has been used for poetry readings, small ensemble performances, classical recitals, and more recently for various art exhibits. This Sunday Happening will bring back some of those people, who remember performing here when they were living in Sampson County. They are now business owners, lawyers, entrepreneurs, parents, professional musicians, actors, bikers, and theater supporters.
Tim and Sharon Morrissey, who contributed to the development and continuation of the Sampson Community Theatre through some critical years, will be returning for a visit. Some of the performers will be Kyle West, a singer and pianist, Mark Evans, who attended Governor’s School in voice, Sarah Stewart and Jim Roberts, a drummer in Cary, who will hopefully bring some of his interesting international experiences to share. Local performers will be Clay Boney, who grew up in the theater and developed into a wonderful actor, Kelly Carter, Suzi Faircloth Matthews singing “I Don’t Know How to Love Him” from Jesus Christ Superstart, Vic Fryar and La Quan Owens.
