EL DORADO – The South Arkansas Arts Center has announced members of the orchestra who will be playing for the summer musical “110 in the Shade.” The musical will run July 14-17 and 21, 23 and 24 The musical director and conductor, Sarah Dailey, has selected a group of very talented musicians from the area to play the score for this golden age of Broadway musical. The production will begin at 7:30 p.m., except on Sundays, when the matinee will begin at 2:30 p.m.
Members of the orchestra are conductor and pianist, Sarah Dailey; trumpet, Aubrey Talley; percussion, Jake Reynolds; bass trombone, Xavier Broughton and clarinet, Dalton Cate. Dailey will serve as conductor and pianist in this orchestra.
“While I will still be directing, I’ll also be playing. Instead of having them watch me for prompts and timing, we will all be listening to each other and feeling the music together. It’s pretty much like team play – like a sports team, where you know who is where and what they are doing at all times. When I am only conducting, I am sort of like a traffic coordinator!”
A special night of “Dinner and a Show” will be held at 6 p.m. on Saturday. Tickets for this event are $75 and the event will include a Texas barbecue supper, signature beverages and seats for the play.
The box office is open for tickets for “110 in the Shade,” which is sponsored by Murphy USA and reservations can be made by calling the SAAC office at 870-862-5474, or at the office at 110 E. Fifth St., El Dorado.
