Saturday, November 7th, at 7:30 pm, the First Street Community Center’s Uptown Theatre is proud to host:

“The Goatsinger Show: Led Astray“.

The Iowa Goatsinger has been spotted recently in Mount Vernon and appears to be setting up a fresh show to entice and beguile and lead you, thoughtful yet dancing, down the garden path.

A playful show mixing music, sketches, and monologues, and closing with a full-house singalong, The Goatsinger Show has been a seasonal staple in Mount Vernon for the past five years, showcasing writers, songwriters, and performers from throughout the Corridor.

Led Astray will feature performances by Mount Vernon local talent:

  • Marty Christensen
  • Josh Woosley
  • Casey O’Connor
  • Mike Moran
  • Anton Rood

Also featuring performances from these talented Cedar Rapids performers:

  • Sam Butz
  • Nicci Miles

The Goatsinger Show: Led Astray will run approximately 75 minutes.  Five dollars at the door.

Beehive – A 60’s Girl Group Musical




Beehive is a musical of 60’s girl groups for the young of heart of any age.

Shows will be performed live in the First Street Community Center’s Uptown Theatre.  Performance dates are October 15 – 18. Shows on the 15th – 17th are at 7:30pm, with one show on the 18th at 2pm. Tickets are only $12.

David Hutchings wrote this for People Magazine about the original New York Village Gate theater production:

…Beehive, a rafter-raising musical revue of the female sound of the ’60s…  Moving musically from the innocence of 1960, when Sandra Dee was engaged to Bobby Darin, to the troubles of 1969, with bitter anti-Vietnam War protest and flower-power children, Beehive is a nostalgic look backward at the wigged-out ’60s.
