The Dress Circle: Songs of Encouragement for the New Year

“Let’s Start the New Year Right” on this week’s Dress Circle (1/2 7:00 p.m.) with songs of encouragement from the musicals.   Some of those shows include “Snoopy,” “Barnum,” “I Remember Mama,” “Crazy for You,” “Seesaw,” and “Fade Out - Fade In.”   Since “Ev’ry Day Comes Something Beautiful,” we should “Put on a Happy Face,” keep a “Stiff Upper Lip,” and “Get Happy” by saying “Yes” to every opportunity that presents itself.  “Take the Moment” to “Spread a Little Happiness” and attack each problem “One Brick at a Time” to make each task easier because, honestly, “It’s Not Where You Start It’s Where You Finish.”  “You Mustn’t Be Discouraged,” and you should always “Look Out for Yourself.”  Above all, “Count Your Blessings” while you look in the mirror and say to yourself “I Believe in You,” and “Don’t Be Anything Less Than Everything You Can Be.”   

Here’s hoping that 2022 will be a positive year for all of us.
