Gosh, one piece of good news is that this weekend we can head to Canton [not so far] for a great nostalgic piece of humor and music. The Comic Opera Guild is presenting ORANGE BLOSSOMS, a musical by VICTOR HERBERT that was first produced in 1922. This year marks the 150th birday of Victor Herbert who was the first major composer of operettas and musicals in the United States. He was also famous for his marches. The plot contains no operatic absurdities, but tells the story of Kitty Savery, a young American of no means, who ventures to Paris where she finds herself marrying a man to save his inheritance. Much hilarity and fur flying ensues. April 3 and 4, 7:30 pm. The Village Theater in Canton.
