The SRC Community Chorus returns to the stage for the first time in two years featuring the original revue The Musical World of Disney. Direction and script are by Carol Davis with musical direction and arrangements by Tony Roberts. The full-length production, with over 45 singers, technicians, and band members, features songs from Disney animated movies, live action films, and Broadway productions.
The Musical World of Disney will be presented in the Taylor Hall theater on the Spoon River College Canton Campus. The four evening performances on August 5-8 begin at 7:30 p.m. with an additional matinee performance on Sunday, August 8, at 2:30 p.m. Seats are $10 per person.
Seating can be reserved by calling (309) 649-6260 Monday through Thursday between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. A confirmation email will be sent once payment has been approved by credit or debit card.
For safety and comfort, reserved seating is limited to 75 per performance. The reserved seating will be arranged in groups guaranteeing that those who order together can sit together. All tickets will be sold in advance and no tickets will be available at the door. Due to the length of the production, the show is not recommended for those under the age of nine.
