WNCC Annual Gala Takes Mythical Feel March 29-30
Nebraska Ag Connection - 03/11/2019

Flip through the pages of a storybook with Western Nebraska Community College's 29th Annual Gala 'Fairy Tales Do Come True.'

The 29th Annual Gala, featuring the WNCC Vocal Music program, will be held March 29 and 30 at the Gering Civic Center. Performances and dinner will begin at 6:30 p.m. each evening with doors opening for social hour at 6 p.m.

Tickets, which are $30 and includes dinner, must be purchased in advance through the WNCC Foundation.

"This is an opportunity to really let your mind dream," said WNCC Vocal Music Instructor Dr. Patrick Newell. "The mythical theme gives us the freedom to cover a variety of selections from different eras. The students have done a fantastic job of bringing each piece to life, telling a different story with each song."

Fittingly, patrons can expect plenty of Disney favorites - covering both good and evil -- throughout the 'Fairy Tales Do Come True' Gala, including songs from "The Lion King," "Tangled," "Enchanted," and older Disney favorites.

However, Newell also found inspiration from Musical Theatre and Classical songs. Specifically, the WNCC choir will be performing pieces such as "Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da" from The Beatles, which describes the whimsical turns of life. Traditional selections include the 400-year-old madrigal "fa una canzona" and an original song for women's chorus titled, "Let Me In."

Tickets are on sale now and must be purchased before March 28 by calling the WNCC Foundation at 308-630-6550 or by visiting Tickets can also be purchased in person at the John N. Harms Center on the WNCC Scottsbluff Campus.
