CALUMET -- The Calumet Theater has registered with the Smithsonian Institution to host the national anthem sing-along at 4 p.m. EDT on Saturday, June 14, Flag Day. The day marks the 200th anniversary of our nation's flag, the Star and Stripes, which inspired the writing of our national anthem, "The Star Spangled Banner."
The Smithsonian Institution is sponsoring the national anthem sing-along, which will be the largest group-sing ever of our national anthem. The Calumet Theatre will open its doors at 3:30 p.m. to welcome anyone who wishes to join in the singing of our national anthem. All, as many as the theater can hold, are invited to join in. To coordinate with the national sing-along people must be INSIDE the theater by 3:55 p.m. Doors will close at that time. Sara Perfetti will conduct and Jan Dalquist will accompany at the piano.
Following the singing the participants are asked to disperse immediately. At 7:30 p.m. that evening the theater will host the Calumet Players in their performance of Rodgers and Hammerstein's Cinderella.
Cinderella will be presented at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Friday and Saturday, June 12-14, and at 2 p.m. on Sunday, June 15.
