Seniors on Stage to Present 'Menifee Valley Hoedown'

"The Menifee Valley Hoedown," an all-live festival of country music, will be staged at the Christensen Middle School auditorium on Friday, Sept. 28, at 6:30 p.m. for one night only.

A cast of more than 30 performers will present the best in country music as interpreted by Seniors On Stage, a troupe of veteran performers with more than 13 years experience staging shows in the Inland Empire.

This show is being staged for the benefit of the Christensen Middle School CPTA. Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for students. For advance ticket information, call Kammi Bider at 951) 543-5189. There is plenty of free parking.

"The Christensen Middle School has a high-tech auditorium with tremendous sound and lighting equipment," SOS. producer Elson Irwin said. "We are happy to have such a wonderful venue for this really big show and it's for a wonderful cause."

The show is directed by Jeanie Baker, assisted by Jeff Parks. This particular production, according to Baker, "takes in all phases of the best in country music, and we might even have a visit from Larry the Cable Guy, all the way from Florida."

Songs included in the program are Willie Nelson's "Crazy," "Walkin' After Midnight," "Harper Valley PTA," "Please Release Me," "Blue," "Once A Day," "I Hope You Dance," and "Time's A Wastin," just to name a few.

The Christensen PTA promises to have lots of refreshments available during intermission.

SOS is a troupe of performers who have been performing throughout the Inland Empire for the past 13 years. This is only their second visit to Menifee, having previously performed a nightclub show for the benefit of the Masonic Lodge.

This troupe has played before packed houses at Seven Hills Playhouse in Hemet, home to the troupe for the past five years.
