Bristol Riverside Theatre continues outdoor concert series

Posted

Bristol Riverside Theatre has moved its William Penn Bank Summer Music Fest outside for the summer season and continues with the theater’s traditional concert series, which will bring the sounds of Broadway and the 80s to Bristol Township’s brand-new outdoor amphitheater.
This BRT summer tradition continues under the leadership of former BRT Artistic Director Keith Baker and features several of BRT’s favorite voices. The first, “Broadway Memories,” runs June 18 to 20. Next is a trip back to that colorful decade with “Totally Awesome 80s,” running July 16 to 18.
Tickets for each concert are $35. All performances will take place at Bristol Township’s outdoor amphitheater, 2501 Bath Road. Tickets and information are available at brtstage.org or 215-785-0100.
Tickets are on sale now. Seating is socially distanced and masks are required when not seated. Food trucks will be on-site. No alcohol permitted. Chairs and blankets are available for purchase at the venue and online at brtstage.org. All seating is general admission.
“It’s the same great summer entertainment that people expect from BRT only now it’s outdoors, under the stars, with food,” said BRT Producing Director Ken Kaissar. “Rather than being cooped up in a theater, audiences can kick off their shoes and dance along while listening to the great sounds of wonderful music. It’s everything summertime should be.”

In the first concert, BRT will take audiences down memory lane with the greatest hits from Broadway –from “My Fair Lady” to “Wicked.” BRT welcomes back the vocals of Derrick Cobey, Elyse Langley, Rebecca Robbins and Sean Thompson.
Audiences can expect to hear their favorites from Rodgers and Hammerstein, Stephen Sondheim, and Jason Robert Brown along with hits from “Young Frankenstein,” “Frozen,” “Hamilton,” and much more.
Next, audiences need to get their big hair and acid-washed jeans ready for a totally awesome time. BRT will take audiences back to the decade that brought music lovers Madonna, Billy Joel, and Foreigner (just to name a few). In this show, BRT favorites Demetria Joyce Bailey, Derrick Cobey, Laura Giknis, and Sean Thompson sing hits from the 80s that will have everyone dancing in their leg warmers. Performances are July 16 to 18.
Other concerts in the William Penn Bank Summer Music Fest line-up include: 70’s Flashback, July 30 and 31; Broadway Ahead, Aug. 13, 14 and 15; and The Doo Wop Project, Aug. 27 and 28
Tickets and subscriptions are available now on brtstage.org.
