MCHS Music Theater to perform for Salvation Army Tea

“It’s spring

MADISON COUNTY —

“It’s spring, so it must be time for the Salvation Army Women’s Auxiliary Tea,” said Jennifer Brubaker, the event chair.

The always popular fundraiser is scheduled for 2 p.m. Saturday, April 20, in the family life center of First Presbyterian Church, Richmond.

The program, “Tea Time on Broadway,” will feature singers with Madison Central High School's music theater program who give a preview of their spring play by singing selections from the Broadway hit “How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying.”

“Tickets for the auxiliary tea always sell out quickly, and with the delightful program we have planned this year, I expect they will be gone in a hurry,” she said.

Only about 225 tickets are available. They may be purchased through any member of the auxiliary or reserved by calling 623-8372.

As customary, a silent auction will precede the tea and program.

The MCHS Music Theater is directed by Lisa Jury, who has established a reputation of excellence in teaching vocal music, guitar, and advanced-placement music theory program at Madison Central, Brubaker said.

“Mrs. Jury always attracts a group of talented students and every year directs them in an impressive, professional-like production,” Brubaker said.

In the past, Jury’s students have performed in such venues as New York City’s St. John the Divine Cathedral and the Macy’s Thanksgiving parade as well as Walt Disney World's EPCOT.

The fundraising event supports the auxiliary’s projects for the Richmond unit of the Salvation Army which serves individuals and families in need in Madison, Estill, Lee and Rockcastle counties.

Auxiliary members handle the Thanksgiving and Christmas food baskets, the Holiday stocking gifts and the Christmas Angel trees. They also work each Monday in the Salvation Army Thrift Store and serve lunches Mondays and Fridays in the Salvation Army Soup Kitchen.
