These lovely Ladies have really got the talent and we are so lucky they are coming to our local Pulaski Theater this Valentines Day 2013. T he Marvelous Wonderettes is a great off -Broadway musical written by Roger Bean . You are taken to the 1958 Springfield High School prom where we meet the Wonderettes. Four crazy girls with all sorts of talent and spunk! As we learn about their lives and loves, we are treated to the girls performing classic ‘50s and ‘60s songs with a do wop style as good as it gets on over 20 classic hits! A real musical trip down memory lane!
Have you been trying to come up with a great VALENTINES Day gift for your Lady. Well here it is. Rockwood Manor has some rooms available on a first come first served basis and at a discounted price of only $125 for the evening and breakfast the next morning. And better still is the fact that “the Marvelous Wonderettes” will be spending the evening and joining us for breakfast.
Ryan Pelton and his wonderful crew are here again to weave another magical tribute to Elvis. We had the pleasure of their staying here at Rockwood Manor and getting to know them on a somewhat personal basis. Their show tonight at the Pulaski Theater is almost sold out and I can see why. He is a true artist with a voice to match his looks and both are so close to the King’s it is scary. I see why he is so popular and traveling the world performing and yet so down to earth and humble. So many of the performers that have stayed with us are completely different from their stage persona and he is too. At this one of their last performances as a Tribute Band, Ryan told of his intentions of creating his own musical style and going for it. I know he has the talent to do so.
You GO Ryan.
Honky Tonk Angels’ musical will be performed Tuesday, April 17 at Pulaski Theatre
The Fine Arts Center for the New River Valley and the Pulaski Theatre presents “The Honky Tonk Angels” on Tuesday, April 17, at 7 p.m.
It happens every day of every year. Somewhere in America, a girl quits her job, kisses her loved ones goodbye and climbs aboard a Nashville-bound Greyhound. And every day of every year, those girls arrive in Music City with little more than a dream to sustain them.
“Honky Tonk Angels” is a raucous and touching musical by the author of the hit Broadway show “Always, Patsy Cline,” and spotlights three women who gamble everything for a chance to become country music stars. The show is Ted Swindley’s funny and tender valentine to the female singers in the country music pantheon – many of whom rode that same bus from Anywhere, USA.
The show tells the story of three aspiring young singers who walk away from their work-a-day lives and head for Nashville. Hear the classic tunes of Tammy Wynette, Dolly Parton and Loretta Lynn as they were meant to be sung. “The Honky Tonk Angels” features powerhouse singer-actresses performing 20 country classics including “Stand by Your Man,” “Coal Miner’s Daughter,” “Harper Valley PTA,” “Nine-to-Five,” “Ode to Billie Joe” and “Harper Valley PTA.”
“ ‘The Honky Tonk Angels’ is a unique musical theatre entertainment,” says producer and director Paul R. Pierce. “It explores the unbridled desire that drives a poor young farm girl, a weary housewife or a stressed-out secretary to drop everything and roll the dice in the world’s most competitive and brutal industry – all for the love of music. Of course, the song list for this show reads like a Nashville greatest hits record, so ‘The Honky Tonk Angels’ is also a thrilling nostalgic journey for the audience.”
The show is produced by Springer Theatricals, the national touring unit of the Springer Opera House, the State Theatre of Georgia. The Springer is a 140-year-old National Historic Landmark with a year-round schedule of plays, musicals and a top-ranked theatre academy. The theatre also has one of the nation’s busiest touring schedules, performing in sixty American cities each year.
Since Reconstruction days, the Springer has been a cherished Southern cultural institution with the world’s most celebrated artists making pilgrimages to perform in the elegance of this famous theatre. From Edwin Booth, Lilly Langtry, George M. Cohan, Ethel Barrymore and Irving Berlin in the old days to more modern appearances by Truman Capote, Hal Holbrook, Burt Reynolds, Chet Atkins and Garrison Keillor, the Springer Theatre has been a centerpiece for the performing arts in the South since 1871.
“The Honky Tonk Angels” will be performed Tuesday, April 17, 2012 at 7:00 p.m. at the Pulaski Theatre, 14 West Main Street, Pulaski, VA 24301. Tickets for the show are $20 in advance and $22 at the door and are on sale now. Ticket outlets are Martin’s Pharmacy, Coffee Buy the Book and the Fine Arts Center in Pulaski and the Pulaski County Visitor Center in Dublin. Call 540-980-7363 for more information.

World famous Elvis tribute artist Ryan Pelton is coming to Pulaski Theater, Pulaski, Virginia on Monday, Feburary 14th, 2011, for one show only.
Spend an evening reminiscing with the music of “The King” as Pelton traces all eras of the music that defined the career of one of the best known and most revered entertainers of all time.
Ryan Pelton is an award-winning, internationally known tribute artist who has entertained tens of thousands with his performances. Pelton is unique in that he traces the music of Elvis through all of its growth and reinvention. From the early beginnings of the 1950’s to the movie years to the ’68 Comeback and the Las Vegas years. Pelton truly does it all. He also has the distinction of being one of the few tribute artists that has worked with many of the same artists that the “King” himself did.
