Some Enchanted Evening
On July 10, Strauss Theatre Center, the Northeast Louisiana Arts Council and Monroe Symphony Orchestra presented “Some Enchanted Evening” in Brown Auditorium. The collaboration was a concert production of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s South Pacific. Produced by the Northeast Louisiana Arts Council, the semi-staged performance directed by Dr. Corey Trahan featured special guest artists along with outstanding local talent, accompanied by members of the Monroe Symphony Orchestra conducted by Dr. Jason Rinehart. Honored posthumously for his and his family’s work for the Strauss Theatre and MSO was Dr. Palmer Jarrell.
The Some Enchanted Evening Gala began at 6:15 before the performance. A post-performance cocktail party with the cast was held at Strauss Theatre Center, where guests were able to mingle with the talented performers.
