The Florala News reported last week that if you missed the variety show "Once Over Lightly" on May 14 at FHS, sponsored by the 24th of June Committee and The Florala Wildcat Bandyou would miss a hilarious evening of entertainment. Well, that was an understatement! The overall show was one of, if notthe best, that has ever been produced in the City of Florala. The auditorium was probably about half filled and people should have been hanging out the windows. It was just that good. After viewing the pictures in this edition of the News, bet you will be sorry you missed it. Though, it was literally storming, the crowd would have to be considered good. The show got on the road with a community af- fair - a play "Happy Days", directed by Mr. and Mrs. A1 Goolsby and Mr. and Mrs. John Goolsby. The cast included Craig Harrison as "The Fonz", Rusty Peters as "Richie", Marty Byrd as "Pot- sie' ', Paul Bedsole as "Ralph Mouth", Melanie Mc- Daniel as "Denise", Fonzie's girlfriend, Leigh Pe- ters as Denise's girlfriend, Mark Welch as theboy in the bathroom, and Beverly and Joe Mayfield as Mr. and Mrs. Cunningham, Tammy Walker as Wen- die, Mark Welch as bathroom intruder, other cast members, Sonya Moseley and LaJuan York. This part of the show was a real scream and everybody loved it! The Womanless Wedding -- well it was one of the cutest this news reporter has ever seen and without a doubt, the best cast that could have been found anywhere, bar none. The bride was none other than our adoring Mayor Josephine Evans, the groom -- the most Reverend Josev Bates: the preacher, John Whitner, flower girlies, Joan Smith. and "Tiny" Jim Walker; train bearers, Keithand- Kevin Harrison. Serving the bridal couple as, witnesses were Danny Harrison, Jim Sullivan, James York, Willie Harrison and Rhett Bedsole. An absolute perfect ending to a wonderful even- ing of entertainment was the presentation of "The Wizard of Oz" by the Florala High School Drama Club, directed by Mr. Andy Alsup who also served as over-all director of the variety show. If, Mr. Alsup stays on at FHS, it won't be long before Troy State University will be coming to Florala to get pointers on their many drama pro- ductions. For a "first" performance, the Florala group would have put many professionals to shame. The pictures all speak for themselves. Enjoy them. And if many of those who attended Friday night's performance are successful in getting a re-run scheduled -- DON'T MISS IT! Mr. Alsup is planning a matinee performance of The Wizard of Oz this Thursday afternoon at 1:00 p.m. for all the children who missed it on Friday evening, for only 25. The performance was enjoyed equally as well Ly all the adults in the Friday night audience. So, don't stayaway just because you can't pass as a child. Thegolden agei's would be welcome,for certain.
