Dance with Act V at 49 Franklin
RUMFORD -- Act V will perform 50s, 60s and 70s Pop and Rock & Roll from 8–10 p.m. on Saturday at 49 Franklin.
They are the live part of a Sock Hop that starts at 7 p.m. with music by DJ Scot. Doors open at 6 p.m. Come for a wonderful evening of dancing and singing along!
The music of the 50s–70s is infectious, joyful and just plain fun! So what could be more enjoyable than a group whose repertoire is classic Rock & Roll and Pop of that era, and whose singing style is also infectious, joyful and just plain fun? “Act V” is that group!
Jeanie Stone’s first musical performance was in a 1959 production of HMS Pinafore at the Norway Opera House. She studied choral music at Westminster College and has been singing in choirs, community choruses and plays ever since.
Sally Jones’ singing career began in the 60s when she sang folk music for several years on Cape Cod. She has long been active in theater productions in the Oxford Hills as both a director and actor.
Bob Elliott traveled the Northeast singing folk music in the 60s. Since then he has performed in area clubs and community theater and sang with Gary Snee’s “Express Big Band” from 1986 to 1994. In their senior years, these talented performers are now living their dreams of singing Rock & Roll!
The 1950s classic song by Nat King Cole, “Unforgettable,” accurately describes the experience of an Act V performance. They sing the unforgettable music of their youth, and the spin they put on these fun songs is uplifting and magical. When you hear them you will agree that Act V is truly unforgettable!
