It was a decade ago when Charlie Leonard was considering what would be the inaugural production for his newly formed Blue Water Theatre Company. Unsure of how many actors would sign up, Leonard decided to go with the Rogers and Hammerstein musical revue, “A Grand Night for Singing.”
“The nice thing about a music revue is that it’s really flexible. You could have a cast of five or a cast of 50,” Leonard said. “You could put the show on at the Orpheum in downtown Minneapolis, or you could put it on in somebody’s basement.”
Ten years after that initial production, Leonard and the theatre company are excited to revisit “A Grand Night” for a special anniversary presentation that includes past and present Blue Water actors.
