Free holiday concert offered by Players

Willow River Players will be presenting a free holiday concert for the community this Sunday, Dec. 7, at 7 p.m. at the New Richmond High School Little Theater.

The annual event is open to the public and provides an opportunity for the group to say "thank you" to the community for supporting theater and the arts during the past year.

There will be a variety of music to celebrate the season with solos, duets and group all combining talents for your entertainment.

The New Richmond High School Madrigal Singers will also be part of the holiday concert program.

The Friends of Willow River Players choir will start things off with classic Christmas carols to get everyone into the spirit.

"This is our annual gift back to the community," said Cindy Brown, president of Willow River Players and coordinator for this event. "We have such dedicated community theater supporters and this is our way of saying thank you for supporting our shows every year."

The concert is free, but Willow River Players will accept donations for the local food shelf of non-perishable items as well as monetary donations.

"This year, we know that more people will be in need of help, and we are asking our holiday concert guests to be especially generous with their donations if they can," Brown said.

The New Richmond High School Little Theater is located at the corner of Riley Avenue and County Road GG south of downtown New Richmond.

Willow River Players is a non-profit organization which presents community theater musicals and plays. This year's productions were "Steel Magnolias" and currently running is "I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change."
