MIDDLEPORT — The sounds of Christmas are warming up for the beginning of the holiday season at the Riverbend Arts Council as preparations are underway for the annual talent revue.

On Sunday, the group held practice for the annual talent revue, to be held Friday, Nov. 25, 2016. The stage was set with posters and props tying in with this year’s theme, “Christmas on Screen.” Concert goers will be treated to music from some of Hollywood’s most well-loved Christmas films and television shows, including “The Nightmare Before Christmas”, “Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer”, and “How the Grinch Stole Christmas.”

The revue will be preceded by music courtesy of the Meigs Community Band at 7 p.m., with the revue starting at 7:30 p.m. Admission is $5] at the door of the Riverbend Arts Council building at 290 N. Second Avenue, Middleport, Ohio. Refreshments, including popcorn, cookies, candy, and bottled water, will be sold during intermission.

Bonné Kreseen, organizer of the revue for the Riverbend Arts Council, said that she believes that the annual program is the longest running holiday program in Meigs County.

In 2016, the revue will showcase the talents of Todd Bissell, the Gallia Meigs Performing Arts, Claire Howard, Lindsay Jackson, Bonné Kreseen, Emma Kreseen, Jeff McElroy, Randy Moore, Madeline Shope, and Linda Warner.
