LA SALLE - Stage 212 is kicking off a new benefit concert series, “212 Sings,” with “Cocktails & Classics: Swingin’ to the Golden Oldies!” All proceeds from the event will go toward the Stage 212 building renovation fund.
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 on Saturday, March 14 at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, March 15 at 2 p.m. 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.
