MAGIC, mirth and musicality are blended in this year's vocal offering from the Manning Valley Choral Society.

The group has created a themed performance, featuring the musical magic of the night, life, nature, music and love, assembling a variety of popular and well-loved choral pieces, sure to delight every age and stage.

Each segment features massed choir, solo and small group/duet assemblages, with delightful interpretations and characterisations.

Laugh at the Prima Donna, swoon at the sensual One Enchanted Evening, be moved by Fantine's performance of I Had a Dream, and join in much loved choruses from Sound of Music, Oliver and Doctor Doolittle.

The special event of the evening is a real life magician, ready to pop the rabbit out of the hat and astound the audience with his magical prowess!

Conducted by Mrs Kim Billingham, with narration by the bard of Taree, Mr David Billingham, with accompaniment by the dynamic Joan Saxby, the Church of Christ venue provides an intimate and acoustically friendly location for such a performance.

Following the previous performance in Taree last month, the Magical Mystery Tour will stop at Killabakh Community Hall at 2pm Saturday July 19, Harrington Waters Church at 2pm on Sunday July 20, Tinonee Memorial Hall at 2pm on Saturday July 26 and Tuncurry Beach Bowling Club at 2pm on Sunday July 27.

This is a show not to be missed, full of wonder, excitement and magical mystery for the whole family.

Tickets at the door, $10 adults, $20 family, $8 concession (pensioners and children over seven). Kindy and under - free.

Supper and afternoon tea will be available.
