LaMay and Reese to Join SCC Theatre’s Fall Production

LaMay and Reese
 Joe LaMay & Sherrie Reese
Somerset Community College Theatre’s fall production will have heavy community involvement and a heavy hitting musical backup when it presents their staged version of Spoon River Anthology, Edgar Lee Masters’ classic collection of poems. The play production is slated to be performed in SCC’s Stoner Little Theatre on Friday and Saturday, November 22 and 23 at 8:00 p.m. Tickets go on sale Monday, November 18. The cost for admission is $4.00 in advance, or $6.00 at the door.

Accompanying the college productions’ cast of Somerset community members, SCC students, faculty and staff will be the well-known local duo LaMay and Reese.

“We are very fortunate and honored to have the talents of LaMay and Reese as a part of our production of Spoon River Anthology,” states SCC Theatre director Steve Cleberg. “Their willingness to take part in our amateur performance reflects their commitment to the Somerset community.”  

Joe LaMay & Sherri Reese label themselves an American Folk Music Duo because their music has grown out of a love of our nation's rich musical heritage. From the old songs carried over the seas and processed through the Appalachians, to their original compositions, the music of LaMay & Reese resonates with a sound rooted in tradition.

LaMay & Reese performances are always entertaining and fun. With Joe on guitar and Sherri on banjo, they present a collection of traditional and original songs that are sure to inspire the novice and please the traditionalist.

More information regarding their music can be found on their web site at www.lamay.com/lamayrees.

The cast of Spoon River Anthology is under the musical direction of Theresa Jean Kibby and includes Jane Correll, Greg Moore, Misty Gibson, Chris Harris, Katie Lowe, Nicholas Kidd, Caitlyn Wheeler, Mark Isham, Tonya Brown, John Alexander, Susan Elmore, Alyssa Burrows, Cheyenne Willis and Pam Bowman.
Cleberg will direct and Dana Floro will serve as the production’s stage manager. Tonya Marcum will run the lights and sound.
