Bulletin, Record, Progressive, Reporter Wednesday, Dec. 31, 2014 13B ARTS al,00.,ld. ENTERTAINMENT :i Happy Happy Joy Joy to, return to Tq00wn Hall Theatre , The Happy Happy Joy Joy Family Band will once more ring in the new year at the Town Hall Theatre with its young-musician showmanship and high-energy antics. Because there isn't enough room for all the fun to be had in one night, this year there will be two nights of entertainment, each night offering a unique experience. In order to allow time for maximum festivities, report organizers, the New Year's Eve show Dec. 31 will begin at 4 p.m. and is guaranteed to finish "in time to party on." The next night's show, Jan. 1, 2015, will begin at 7 p.m. Each show will cost $12 at the door. Presale tickets are available at local vendors for $10 per show, or $18 for both shows. Each show will feature a different song set and other entertainment. The Happy Happy Joy Joy Family Band is exactly what it sounds like -- a big group Of friends playing music together with the simple goal of lifting spirits and spreading good cheer. Since its debut at the Quincy Certified Farmers' Market in 2012, the group has put on two lively concerts to bring in the new year, played a summer concert to raise funds for the Town Hall Theatre and performed at many other local venues. Members of the conglomeration come from diverse backgrounds, and they offer the following tongue-in-cheek personal biographies. Keely Nesbit is a long-lost cousin to the famous singer Adele and studied vocal techniques under Freddie Mercury. Chris and Nathan Retallack were raised in a time-traveling family and FRC holds auditions for 'Into the Woods' This spring Feather River College will present Stephen Sondheim's musical "Into the Woods." Producers report that this sprightly tale involves a myriad offairytale characters who are trying to find what they wish for as they travel, well, into the woods. Characters include Little Red Riding Hood, the Big Bad Wolf, Cinderella, Rapunzel, Jack (of beanstalk fame), Jack's Mother, Snow White, Sleeping Beauty, the Wicked Witch and many more. The musical has recently been made into a major movie production showing currently with such stars as Meryl Streep and Johnny Depp. On Broadway the show starred Bernadette Peters and won Tonys for best score, story and actress. The show will be presented at the Town Hall Theatre on May 6 - 10, 2015. Director Terry Gallagher said she was very surprised that Music Theatre International granted FRC the rights, as the movie is till in theatres. "We've wanted to do this show for a while, as it is very popular. I'm excited that we have a chance to show off our local talent with our own production." Auditions are set for Tuesday, Jan. 13, and Wednesday, Jan. 14, 2015, in the Quincy High School cafeteria. Additional auditions will be held the following week: Tuesday, Jan. 20, and Wednesday, Jan. 21, also in the QHS cafeteria. Times are 7 to 9:30 p.m. Auditions include a reading and a prepared song. A rehearsal pianist will be available.

Emmanuel and Alex Lemnah were found digging food out of a trashcan, so they were given pity spots in the band. Kelsey, Natalie and Claire Kepple arrived on Earth in a rocket ship from the planet Perelandra to show humans what music should sound like. Garrett and Austin Hagwood lived in a New York studio apartment for many years with Kenny G. and Ernest Hemingway, where they mastered their respective arts. John Kennon, Graham and Anna Shea were often spotted traveling the country pIaying music from a flatbed hay truck to pedestrians. Caleb Collins was obviously raised by wolves. He has zero table manners. Together, these friends put on an event rivaled by none. "This is a show that brings together poetry, classical, folk, rock, two-headed mandolins, humor bits, jazz, bluegrass, armadillos, romance, drama, laughter and a genuinely good time," say organizers. "This is a show you want to be at." The Happy Happy Joy Joy Family Band is set to return to the big stage at the Town Hall Theatre for two consecutive nights. The first show is scheduled for today at 4 p.m., while the second show will start tomorrow at 7 p.m. Photo submitted Quincy Elks Lodge Presents New Year's Eve 2014 ........................... ................

On Christmas morn we drank what then remained Then sat around our decorated tree And ooed at gifts each festive box contained Then snacked on cookies, coffee or some tea. On New Years eve we shunned the boistrous crowds And settled down beside our fireplace, Ignoring winds or rain or snow or clouds, 'And then at twelve, we shared a long embrace. And though I reminisce with only memories, I conjure them to live in them when I so please.
