WOW Spring 2008 Production

Co-Producers Jeanie Taylor and Georgia Williams, together with Director Joanie Roper and Co-Director Robert Williams, put together "Spring Fever", an exciting "song and dance revue" featuring the Wrinkles of Washington singers, dancers and musicians.  The show was presented April 12th and 13th at the wonderful Olympia High School Performing Arts Center, 1302 North Street, Olympia, WA.  The spring fever theme was carried throughout the show by a small swarm of bees, headed by the mama (or queen) bee.

Joanie Roper introduces Bill Dergan, the mc, to the audience and explains that we are very fortunate to have Bill as our mc as he is deathly afraid of bees.  Bill introduces the quartet, Unforgettable.  They open the show with the lively "Undecided."
