Other highlights included: "In My Own Little Corner" from Cinderellasung lovingly by Noseworthy, a stupendous "I Gotta Crow" fromPeter Pan with Alet Taylor irresistibly sounding off, an adorable "Talk to the Animals" fromDr. Doolittle from adorable Hansen, a wonderful TV medley by Melody Hollis which included: the theme from "Sesame Street", "Happy Days", "The Brady Bunch", "Gilligan's Island", "The Beverly Hillbillies" and "The Addams Family". Melody also performed a beautifully low-key combo of "Chim Chim Cheree" and "Feed the Birds" from Poppins. Lauren Rubin's finest hour came with "At the Codfish Ball" from Captain January, originally sung with gusto by Shirley Temple and the lilting "Candle on the Water" from Pete's Dragon. The audience joined in after the finale of "Over the Rainbow" sung beautifully by Hansen for a rousing "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious".
This was a wonderfully fun evening for the entire family, and if you have never experienced a Kritzerland show, you do not know what you are missing. Forever humorous Bruce Kimmel presents a dazzling array of talent singing some very precious material. And there are always surprises - as this time Kimmel himself lifted his nice voice to the strains of Sylvia Fine's "I'll Take You Dreaming" from The Court Jester.
