TheMonarchsColorThe Pawling Heritage Society of Georgetown College dinner-and-concert event – built around the March 7 Foust Artist Series show featuring the Sixties music of the Monarchs – just got better.

Members of the College’s Lyric Theatre Society – including seniors Ryland Pope of Harlan, Best Singer/Artist Overall at last fall’s National Association of Teachers of Singing (NATS) State Competition, and Lexington’s Jessie Rose Pennington, star of the independent film “Surviving Guthrie – will entertain at the dinner.

Pope will sing “When the Air Sings of Summer” from “The Old Maid and The Thief;” Pennington, who’s had the lead in numerous Maskrafters musicals, will perform “100 Easy Ways to Lose a Man” from “Wonderful Town.” Sophomores Michael Cannon of Stamping Ground and Madeline Gannon of Mount Sterling will sing “All Er Nuthin'” from “Oklahoma!”

Dinner and fellowship begin at 6 p.m. in the Hall of Fame Room, Cralle Student Center. Then at 8 p.m., the Louisville-based Monarchs will perform next door in John L. Hill Chapel.
