GREENBLATT & SEAY

PRESENT

“NOAH’S ARK”

AN ORIGINAL MINI-MUSCIAL

APRIL 14, 2:30PM

OLD SCHOOLHOUSE

AVOCA, NE

“Noah’s Ark” is a lively adaptation of the story of Noah and the great flood.  This unique Greenblatt & Seay production explores the fate of the humans and other animals on the ark, from the day they boarded, to the day they disembarked.  The words, by David Seay, examine the relationships between the inhabitants of the ark, and how they managed to survive from one unpredictable day to the next.  The music, by Deborah Greenblatt, suggests many of the globes great musical traditions, such as blues, Cajun, calypso, Klezmer, a “Gilbert & Sullivan”-style jig,  a tango, and even a round.  Greenblatt & Seay & Friends will be singing and playing a variety of instruments during the performance, including a 5-string fiddle, harmonica, guitar, tiple, bouzouki.

The concert will be downstairs in the Old Avoca Schoolhouse, and followed by light refreshments, and a chance to chat and even jam with the performers.  Avoca is in southern Cass County, Nebraska, on the 13 C Spur, one mile south of Highway 34.  Admission is $10.00 for adults, $5.00 for students and senior citizens, and $1.00 for children. Seating is limited. For more information, write to Greenblatt & Seay. The Old Schoolhouse, P.O. Box 671, Avoca, Nebraska, 68307, or call 402-275-3221.
