The all-singing, all-dancing all-(local) star spectacle, &#8220Puttin' in the Ritz” has been re-scheduled from early March to April 27-28, 2007.

The event, which replaces the annual silent auction as the Greenville Area Arts Council signature fundraiser, will display an array of colorful, lavish costumes, featuring custom-designed headdresses and hats created by Roberta Gamble.

Songs from the greatest hits on Broadway throughout the years will be performed by gifted local talents.

&#8220We are very excited about this show and the extra time will give us an even greater opportunity to polish it for our audience. We want everyone to mark their calendars for April 27 and 28 and plan to join us at the Ritz,” said director Nancy Idland. 

Charlie Kennedy will serve as musical director for the show.

In the meantime, theater lovers are reminded the next GAAC performance, &#8220Urban Cowboy,” a musical based on the popular John Travolta-Debra Winger film, is slated for February 19 at the Ritz.

The season will close out with the Broadway hit &#8220Camelot” in April.

&#8220Come out and see some wonderful theater and support the GAAC,” Idland said.
