Shtick to Singing
The Land of the Sky Chorus will present their annual Asheville show of harmony and hilarity, this year called "SHTICK TO SINGING", at the Diana Wortham Theatre, on Sat. Oct 24. The show starts a 7:30 PM.
The show will feature the 45-man Land of the Sky Barbershop Chorus and quartets, along with special guest quartet, the Dixie District 2009 Champion Quartet "LET'S SING!!".
Tickets are $18 preshow, and $20 at the door (children 12, and under, free), and are available from the Land of the Sky Chorus by calling 866-290-7269 (see more information at ashevillebarbershop.com), or from the Diana Wortham Theatre Box Office (.dwtheatre.com/box-office; 828-257-4530).
For sure, no other show features a judge with a croquet gavel, “Little St Nick” on a skateboard, 50 Elvis aspirants performing his torch-rock hit “Love Me,” the candy-apple myopia of “Rose Colored Glasses,” the artistry of Leonard Bernstein’s “Somewh......ere,” an intensely factual rendition of the “Copper Clapper Caper,” a 39-inch diameter powder puff, harmony galore and back by popular request with some new surprises: the uproarious reenactment of the entire Ed Sullivan Show in 2 minutes and 57 seconds!!!!
