The Old Alabama Town Revue presents its last show of the 2018-2019 season on May 11 at 2 p.m. in the First Presbyterian Colored Church (1885) in Old Alabama Town. The Revue will be part of the activities of Old Alabama Town’s Second Saturday event. Guests are invited to tour Old Alabama Town’s beautiful and historic buildings and enjoy the Revue at 2 p.m. — open to the public and free of an admission charge.

For those who have somehow missed this treasure, Old Alabama Town is an authentic 19th century village. No facades or “made-to-look-like” buildings in Old Alabama Town! All the buildings are authentic 19th and early 20th century homes and other buildings that have been saved from demolition, carefully restored, and reopened to the public as a history museum.

The theme for the Revue this performance is “Flowers” in a nod to spring. Without intent, the song list is heavy on roses! Toni Wood will wow with “The Rose,” Tim Henderson turns sentimental with “Give My Love to Rose.” There are other rose offerings, but I am saving them for our audiences’ surprise and delight! And there are other flowers. Larry will wax nostalgic with “If You’re Going to San Francisco,” and yours truly will go traditional with “Wildwood Flower.” A couple of duets will add to the afternoon’s sparkle.

The guest artist billing is spectacular! Toni Wood’s grandson, Jackson Cee, will present his premier performance in “Red Roses for a Blue Lady.” (More roses). But the wow factor doesn’t stop there–Toni’s granddaughter, Isabela Payne, will present a reading. And the hits keep coming—we are so lucky—Eleanor Davis will join us to render a poem you are all going to love. No, I’m not telling you what it is. But its just perfect. What I am telling you is this is a really big shhhoooow!

Old Alabama Town will be open from 9 a.m. until 4. To tour OAT, enter through Lucus Tavern on North Hull Street. The Old Alabama Town Revue starts at 2 p.m.. To attend the Revue, enter through Lucas Tavern on North Hull Street or through the gate at 301 Columbus Street.

You won’t hear from us again until the October show so come join us for “Flowers” on May 11 at 2 pm in the First Presbyterian Colored Church (1885) in Old Alabama Town.
