NEW RIVER BELL ENSEMBLE – BUY A BELL CAMPAIGN
The New River Bell Ensemble has launched a fundraising campaign to purchase additional handbell octave sets. Their current set of bells was purchased through generous donations from the Grayson County Community Theatre and individuals throughout the Twin Counties. In order to expand their repertoire and accommodate the growing roster of ringers, the Ensemble needs to add octave sets of handbells. The goal is to raise $20,000. Donors at the $250 level and above may dedicate a bell with an engraved sentiment on the bell handle.

It’s a COMEDY TO DIE FOR! Coming in May 2018, Noel Coward’s Smash Comedy BLITHE SPIRIT tells the tale of the fussy, cantankerous novelist Charles Condomine, re-married but haunted (literally) by the ghost of his late first wife, the clever and insistent Elvira who is called up by a visiting “happy medium,” one Madame Arcati. During a dinner party, the (worldly and un-) personalities clash and Charles’ current wife, Ruth, is accidentally killed, “passes over,” joins Elvira, and the two “blithe spirits” haunt the hapless Charles into perpetuity. BLITHE SPIRIT will run May 5, 6, 10, 12 & 13 at The Rex Theatre in Galax.
Adult Tickets $10.00
