The Village Singers will kick off their 15th season with a tribute to songs from movies.

Movie Magicals will be performed at 7 p.m. Saturday, May 14, and 3 p.m. Sunday, May 15, in the Meeting Haus, 588 S. Third St. Tickets are $10 each and can be purchased at the Meeting Haus or from any of the singers. Some additional seating might be available the days of the shows.

Wayne Owens, founder and general manager of the group, said the songs range from classic numbers, such as Singin' in the Rain, to more modern music, such as You're the One that I Want.

"We've done some of these songs before, but not in this context," he said. "When you do it for 15 years you're bound to repeat."

The audience will be asked to participate in the show by matching about 15 songs with the film in which they appeared.

The chorus will scat along with the themes to James Bond and Pink Panther, which have no words.

"I love the music we're doing," Director Karla Wright said. "It's so much fun."

Money raised from the show pays for sheet music, salaries for the director and accompanist, and the Village Singers endowment fund, which is working with Fort Hayes Arts and Academic High School and Directions for Youth & Families to provide scholarships for students.

The Singers' other major performance of the year is a Christmas show. The group is part of the German Village Society.

Quinton Jones, who has been the regular accompanist for Village Singers for eight years, said he enjoys performing the medley of songs from Phantom of the Opera.

"There's just a lot of good music," he said.
