Coyote Stageworks to Kick Off 2014 Season With Hilarious ANDREWS BROTHERS, 1/24
Coyote StageWorks announces the launch of its 2014 season with "The Andrews Brothers: A Madcap Musical Salute to the Swinging '40's" at the Annenberg Theater in Palm Springs, January 24 through February 16, 2014. Created by Roger Bean ("The Marvelous Wonderettes") and presented in association with the Annenberg Theater and Roger Bean Productions, this hilarious musical is packed with slapstick comedy, old-fashioned romance, and nostalgic tunes.
A USO show is threatened with cancellation when a certain famous trio of singing sisters fails to show, and it's up to three earnest and determined stagehands to go on with the show! "The Andrews Brothers" is filled to the brim with over 25 songs made famous by the Andrews Sisters. Mistaken identities and madcap adventures, along with the music of an entire generation highlight this wonderful valentine to the heroes of World War II.
"This show is perfect for Palm Springs," says Chuck Yates, Founding Artistic Director of Coyote StageWorks. "With show-stopping songs like 'Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy,' 'Slow Boat to China,' 'Don't Sit Under the Apple Tree,' and 'Ac-Cent-Tchu-Ate the Positive,' it will be a hilarious and entertaining performance that will have you rolling in the aisles!"
Performances of "The Andrews Brothers" will be presented at 7:30 pm on Friday, Saturday, and Wednesday evenings, and matinees at 2:00 pm on Saturday, Sunday, Wednesday, and Thursday afternoons. A Q&A session with cast members will follow each Thursday matinee. Tickets are $39-$49 for matinees and $45-$55 for evening performances, and may be obtained at the Annenberg Theater Box Office. Twice voted "Best Live Theater" by Desert Magazine in 2013 and 2014, Coyote
StageWorks was also presented with fifteen Desert Star Awards by the Desert Theatre League on October 6th.
