Enjoy music from the '50s with 'The Taffetas'

If you enjoy music from the 1950s, you should find "The Taffetas" a treat.

See the show at the Family Theatre in Columbus and you might find yourself falling in love with the tunes of that era.

The show, called "delightful" by The New York Times, runs for two more weeks at the Hamilton Road location.

The musical journey is based around four singing sisters from Muncie, Ind., who travel to New York City to make their national television debut on "Spotlight on Music."

The show pays tribute to the sounds of The McGuire Sisters, The Fontane Sisters and The Chordettes.

It provides some laughs and a lot of nostalgia along with the music.

The show is directed by Cheryl Palmour with musical direction by Carol Lamb.

The sisters are portrayed by Jordan Singer of Columbus, Anastasia Daniels of Box Springs, Ga., Brittany Whitehurst of Columbus and Lydia Epp of Phenix City.

The Family Theatre is a nonprofit theatre company founded in 1997.

The mission of the theater is to present quality productions, promote Godly values and prepare people for excellence in theatre and life.

It works to provide a place for local actors, directors, musicians, choreographers and technicians to hone their skills and gain valuable practical experience both on and off stage.
