Uh oh! It’s Pavarotti with a mullet! Kaskaskia College Season of Entertainment is pleased to welcome live from Branson, Missouri, The 3 Redneck Tenors to the Jane Knight Auditorium on Sunday, May 12 at 3:00 p.m. The Tenors will wrap up KC’s 2013-14 Guest Artist and Speakers Series.
In the melodic wake of the three operatic tenors comes a new breed of tenors from more humble origins...3 Redneck Tenors - A New Musical Adventure. The musical comedy featuring classically trained veteran artists from Broadway and world opera stages is like Greater Tuna meets Das Barbecue - down home laughs with big city music! Written by opera-veteran Matthew Lord with music arranged by Craig Bohmler, 3 Redneck Tenors features a cast of veteran opera and Broadway stars including Blake Davidson, Alex Bumpas, Matthew Lord and Dinny McGuire.
Performance songs include a range of familiar and classics including Lone Prairie, La Donna e Mobile, Please Kind Sir, Green, Green Grass of Home, YMCA, O Sole Mio, It’s Now or Never, Greensleeves, Hound Dog, You Light Up My Life, Nessun Dorma, La Danza and Shenandoah
Join Billy Bob, Billy Joe and Billy Billee as they mix NASCAR with La Boehme, lite beer with Carmen and even kick up a little dust with Madame Butterfly. You’ll travel with our 3 classical cousins from their modest beginnings in Paris, Texas all the way to their triumphant debut at New York’s famous Carnegie Hall. It’s a foot stompin’, knee slapin’, uproariously funny musical redneck romp, with tunes of Elvis to Puccini, soul to pop and country to opera. So ya’ll come join us and I’ll betcha a six-pack of longnecks and a can of Copenhagen you’ve never seen or heard anything like it.
It’s not a concert, it’s not a play, it’s...3 Redneck Tenors - A New Musical Adventure.
Tickets for the 3 Redneck Tenors- A Musical Adventure are $27 for adults, $15 for youths 18 and under and can be purchased online at www.kaskaskia.edu/soe, or by calling 545-3223
