Venice Theatre's senior theatre performance troupe, The Silver Foxes, will take to the MainStage March 19 through March 23 for its annual March performances, the theatre has announced. Breaking from the tradition of a variety show format, the troupe will perform a full- length original musical under the direction of Brad Wages, a news release points out. The show will be a musical comedy called It's a Country Thang, Ya'll! It "might remind audi- ences of a cross between Green Acres (city meets country) and the old Mickey Rooney/ Judy Garland movies (let's put on a show in the barn)," the release adds. Performances will be Wednesday through Saturday at 8 p.m. and at 2 p.m. on Sunday. Reserved seat tickets are $24; they may be purchased online at ven- or by calling the box office at 488-1115. The Silver Foxes are professionally directed volunteer performers who have been enter- taining around the area for 22 years, the release points out. "Bringing song, dance and laughter to community centers, reli- gious groups and clubs throughout Sarasota County," the troupe reaches nearly 5,000 audience members each season, the release says. The annual MainStage show helps raise money for Venice Theatre's education and outreach programs. This year's produc- tion is the group's most ambitious ever, the release adds.
