Dear Friends, Family and Congregants of The Actors’ Temple,

We will be celebrating our 102nd Anniversary in our very own recently renovated sanctuary and lower level, on Monday, March 25th, 2019, from 6:30-9:30pm.

Our entertainment for the evening will be the fabulous Tony Middleton and his Trio. He traded in his amateur boxing gloves and jumped into the music business around 1952. His most famous recording of the era was the hit song “Church Bells May Ring” with The Willows. Tony has worked in the music business ever since, producing many great records and singles, working with many of the greatest performers of his time, and contributing his voice for many film soundtracks. His repertoire covers a wide range of musical styles, genres, and periods.

Whatever your age, whatever your musical tastes, Tony has something for you. Would you expect any less from a man with seven decades of work under his belt?

Please come and have a great time while also supporting The Actors’ Temple. I’ll certainly be there and I hope many of you will, too

Lots of love and good wishes,

Carol Ostrow, President
