Reel Music celebrates the movies that helped create the soundtrack to the last century, with classics like “Singing in the Rain,” “Circle of Life,” and “My Heart Will Go On.” This lively music revue reminds us that movies and music have always gone hand in hand.

Reel Music, by Richard Hopkins, Rebecca Hopkins, and Sarah Durham, plays beginning February 15, 2023, in FST's John C. Court Cabaret.
