On July 8, 2012 an audience of lucky people was treated to a concert version of Oscar Hammerstein II’s Show Boat  on Bannerman’s Island.  The concert was produced by Claudia Cummings and the Opera Company of the Highlands.  The show was narrated by John Moultrie.  The lead singers were:  Shira Renee Thomas (Magnolia), Vira Slywotzky (Julie), Chantelle Grant (Queenie), Matthew Singer (Gaylord Ravenal), and Marvin Lowe (Joe). The show was additionally backed up by a chorus.  There will be a repeat performance tonight.
