The Monterey Note-Ables present Music, Music, Music for three shows March 31 and April 1.

There are about 20 performers in the show who range in age from their 50s to 80s. “Sometimes we have people in their 90s, but not this time,” said Note-Able member Sharon Belton.

The Note-Ables rehearse October through March at The Monterey Centre in Oak Bay. The group puts on a show each year to entertain other members and the public. “Some of the people who are very good do the solos and others sing in the chorus,” said Belton. They all have a lot of energy and take a lot of joy from performing, she added.

Proceeds from the Note-Ables production of Music, Music, Music will go back to the centre to help keep it running smoothly and providing opportunities for Oak Bay seniors.

Members have fun while learning the different aspects of staging a production, said Belton. “It’s not professional (level). Of course people enjoy the mistakes and the fumbles, but they have so much fun singing and dancing, they put on quite a good show,” she said.

Music, Music, Music is the 16th production put on by the Monterey Note-Ables.

Tickets, $10, may be purchased at the Monterey Note-Ables Box Office in the lounge of the centre, 1442 Monterey Ave., from Monday to Friday, March 19 to 30 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Music, Music, Music is on Saturday, March 31 at 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m., and on Sunday, April 1 at 2 p.m.
