Flashback Friday: UPDATE! 1976

Here’s an update on our 1976 Flashback Friday. According to our source, Thomas Wingate, the Bicentennial Review was an outdoor concert held in Hanover in the little square next to the Nugget on a Friday evening at the end of June 1976. It was a concert featuring highlights from NCCT and local high school musicals. Bob Bocash, the No No Nanette pianist accompanied the performers on a synthesizer. To the best of Thomas’ recollection the musical numbers from NCCT were:

  • Till There Was You, from the inaugural production of The Music Man sung by NCCT founding member Wendy Tonkovich.
  • It’s Today from Mame, sung by NCCT founding Member Peggy Cooperman (Bogia) and Lisa Webster as Little Patrick.
  • If I Were A Rich Man from Fiddler on the Roof performed by Ken Munsey.
  • Reviewing the Situation from Lebanon High School’s production of Oliver! with NCCT member Jonathan Druhl as Fagin.

We love hearing from those of you who were involved in the early days of NCCT. Please continue to send your stories and recollections to info@ncct.org.

Flashback Friday: 1977

Apparently, we were pretty busy in 1977!  We put on 4 productions: Hello Dolly!, The Velveteen Rabbit, Workhouse Ward/Happy Journey and You Can’t Take it With You (we don’t have any records from this show). Thank you Bernard Dauphinais for providing us with the posters/programs for these productions!
