Press Release: America’s Sweethearts concert November 10
Gesa Power House Theatre presents America’s Sweethearts in concert on Sunday, November 10 at 7:00 p.m.
America has loved the swinging sounds of female close-harmony groups even before The Andrews Sisters hit the airwaves with “Bei Mir Bist Du Schön” in 1937, but audiences will hear those great vintage songs with fresh ears when America’s Sweethearts take the stage in their fresh and vibrant show!
These New York City-based ladies have performed across the United States at iconic spaces honoring our veterans (the Intrepid Air and Space Museum, the WASP Museum) as well as large theaters and intimate cabaret venues, getting crowds tapping their feet to hits like “Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy” as they celebrate history through their crystal-clear harmony and colorful costumes.
With selections from the Great American Songbook, classic Broadway, pop tunes from the 1950s, and jazz, America’s Sweethearts charm audiences of all ages while navigating their way through a variety of trios, duets, and solo features – all served with a slice of old-fashioned fun!
Beer, wine, and non-alcoholic beverages will be available for purchase and may be taken into the theater.
Reserved seating tickets ($35-$30) are available online at www.phtww.org or by calling the box office at 509-529-6500. Group ticket sales are available by calling 509-876-1662.
The 2019 Season is supported in part by: Walla Walla Union-Bulletin, Coldwell Banker First Realtors, Foundry Vineyards, Courtyard Marriott, Inland Cellular, KAPP-KVEW, McCurley Integrity Toyota of Walla Walla, Northwest Public Broadcasting, and Pacific Power.
About the Gesa Power House Theatre
The historic Gesa Power House Theatre is a 300-seat performing arts venue, located in downtown Walla Walla. The 120-year-old building was once the Walla Walla Gas Plant, built to produce coal gas used to light the streets, businesses, and homes of Walla Walla. In 2011 the Gesa Power House Theatre building was transformed into a state-of-the-art playhouse for live performance. The interior design of the theatre was inspired by Shakespeare’s own intimate Blackfriars Theatre in London, England.
The Gesa Power House Theatre is on the Washington State Building Preservation Commission list of State historic buildings and on the National Register of Historic Places. The venue also hosts a variety of other cultural events, musical concerts, and private events (including weddings).
