Young at Heart: Generations of Fascinating Ladies tours the Island
Thursday, May 3, 2018 at 7:00pm - 9:00pm
Generations of Fascinating Ladies is a tribute to the female artists and girl groups of the last century, including the Boswell Sisters, Andrews Sisters, The Maguire Sisters, Etta James, The Chordettes and more. Songs will include: Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy, In the Mood, Sentimental Journey, Sincerely, Tell Him and the Shoop Shoop Song.
This musical revue is nearing the end of its 2018 tour of the Island, having visited numerous venues across PEI including manors, community care facilities, hospitals, and community halls.
Each year the company raises funds to produce a professional musical that will tour across PEI to manors, community care facilities, nursing homes, hospitals and places where seniors gather. The venues donate a small portion of the cost, while the rest is raised through grants, sponsorships, fundraisers and private donations.
A fundraising concert featuring Generations of Fascinating Ladies plus special musical guests and a dessert extravaganza will be held at St. Paul’s Church in Charlottetown on May 3 at 7 pm.
The Charlottetown Jazz Ensemble’s May 8 concert at the Pourhouse will feature guest artist Catherine O’Brien. Money raised at that event will support future Young at Heart productions.
