EDISON, NJ - The Edison Arts Society recently presented four local performers this past Sunday in a musical review. The performers included Amy Levine, Sandye Rudnitzky, Gabriel Visser Trumbull and Juliette Trumbull in a musical review entitled “There is Nothing Like a Dame
Songs from classic musicals including The King and I, South Pacific, Carousel, The Sound of Music, Cinderell, and State Fair were performed. The musical director and accompanist, Jimmy Sabo, selected a variety of music that was reminiscent of the great days of composers Rogers and Hammerstein.
The three performers, Rudnitzky, Levine, and Visser Trumbull opened the show with the snappy tune “There's Nothing Like a Dame” from South Pacific. Other tunes included “Getting to Know You” from The King and I, “You'll Never Walk Alone” from Carousel, and “It Might as Well Be Spring” from State Fair.
The ladies were joined onstage by Juliette Trumbull, daughter of Gabriel Visser Trumbell, who sang “In My Own Little Corner” as a solo and “Impossible; It's Impossible,” as a duet with her mother. Both songs were from Cinderella, a perennial favorite.
Most notable was the inspirational “Climb Every Mountain,” from The Sound of Music, performed by the three women near the show's conclusion.
The Edison Arts Society is grateful to the Federal Business Centers, Reilly Financial Group and the Middlesex County Board of Chosen Freeholder for sponsoring the production “There's Nothing Like a Dame.”
