Participation’s Music Hall Theatre Productions performed another awesome show Friday, September 25 . Another swell performance from HUGO Mobility and La Plume Moderne brought this lyrical troupe to Alexandria’s historic Priest’s Mill to raise funds for the Glengarry Memorial Hospital Foundation. Syllabification from a Sycophant featuring Bob’s favourite hospital was a ragtime rock

fest that made the audience voices ring out, ushered laughter into the air and toes tap. The musicians were silly, while seriously playing their instruments. Starring in the musical were Katie Dits- chun, amazing songstress, virtuoso Ka- zooist, pianist and percussionist; Robert (Bob) Hardy, clever clarinetist and non- sensical navigator of the show; Ian McIn- tosh, wee ukulele player; Willard Riley, top trumpeter, terrific tubaist and copyright clarifier; Laurie McRae-Bingley, wonder- ful walker waltzer – Viola St. James; Jeff Poissant, multi-mediaminister; andDavid Sauvé, sensible stage manager. Participation’sMusic HallTheatre Produc- tions, at a celebratory soirée, will perform The Down Town Abbey Christmas Special , Thursday, November 26, at the NAVCentre in Cornwall.
