THIS IS THE '70S Plays Harris Center/Three Stages This Weekend
Following the successful run of This is the '60s last season at the Harris Center/Three Stages, This Is The '70s picks up where last season's show left off. The decade that brought us waterbeds, leisure suits, and pet rocks also spawned one of the most diverse periods in music history in the 20th Century.
More than a stage show, and much more than a concert, the '70s return-live, and on stage. The show is a total immersion into the pop culture of the period, including vintage TV commercials, retro dance numbers, period fashion, animated graphics of the era, rare historic newsreel footage ranging from Watergate to Apollo 13 to Saturday Night Fever, and note-for-note live music renditions of the greatest hits of the decade.
This is the '70s will perform tonight, September 28, 2013 at 8 pm and Sunday, September 29, 2013 at 2 & 7 pm. Tickets are $35-$49; Premium $55 & $59. There is a
10% Discount on Sunday Night Single Tickets. Tickets are available online at www.harriscenter.net or from Harris Center Ticket Office at 916-608-6888 from 10 am to 6 pm, Monday through Saturday, and two hours before show time. Parking is included in the price of the ticket. Harris Center is located on the west side of Folsom Lake College campus in Folsom, CA, facing East Bidwell Street.
With thirty songs from a soundtrack that united a generation, This is the '70s features the music of Creedence Clearwater Revival, Doobie Brothers, Peter Frampton, Carly Simon, Stevie Wonder, Elton John, The Band, Fleetwood Mac, Billy Joel, Journey, Michael Jackson, Yes, Bee Gees, Boston, Led Zeppelin, Paul McCartney, Heart, The Guess Who, Badfinger, and many more. Performed live with no pre-recorded samples, the two-hour show features the skill and versatility of eight seasoned performers.
The unique show design is the brainchild of Lyric Media president and producer/director Jim Duffy, a veteran documentary filmmaker, author and musician who has created programming for Discovery Networks and other national media outlets. "I combined the two elements I love most: music and storytelling," explains Duffy. "Just like our This Is The '60s show, This Is The '70s takes the audience on a journey-one that's designed to entertain, educate, and stimulate."
