LASALLE — Stage 212 is kicking off a new benefit concert series, “212 Sings,” with “Cocktails & Classics: Swingin’ to the Golden Oldies!”
The ’50s and ’60s were filled with the new sound of rock and roll, the cool beat of Motown and the sweet harmonies of the girl groups. “Cocktails & Classics” takes a tour of the songs made famous on American Bandstand and played repeatedly on jukeboxes in diners across the country.
Performers include Abby Bertrand, Emily Brodzik, Becky Christopherson, Tony Christopherson, Dana Dawson, Damian Gonzalez, Phil Grant, Christin Mitchell, Neal Phelps and Kyle Showen. The production is directed by Phil Grant and Neal Phelps.
“Cocktails & Classics: Swingin’ to the Golden Oldies!” will be presented at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, March 14, and at 2 p.m. Sunday, March 15. Tickets are $15 each and may be purchased online by visiting www.stage212.org or by calling the box office at 815-224-3025 and leaving a message.
All proceeds from “Cocktails & Classics: Swingin’ to the Golden Oldies!” will go to the Stage 212 building renovation fund.
