“The Andrews Brothers” Perform at the Library

Although the Andrew Sisters will be played by the Andrew Brothers at Theatre Palisades, residents can still hear the songs they love.

Theatre Palisades, in conjunction with the Palisades Library, is offering a chance to see a scene from an upcoming show, The Andrews Brothers. Be among the first residents to get a sneak preview, meet the performers and speak to director Jennifer Novak Chun.

On Thursday, August 24, at 6 p.m., members of The Andrew Brothers cast will come to the library, at 861 Alma Real, to perform a scene. This is a free event.

When the famous Andrew Sisters can’t perform at a base in the Pacific because they have chicken pox, USO backstage hands step up, so the show can go on.

Three men step up in their best Patty, Maxene and LaVerne form to sing hit songs from the 1940s. The play will open on September 1 at the Pierson Playhouse and promises to be highly entertaining.

The cast includes Jeff DeWitt as Lawrence. Three actors making their Theatre Palisades debuts include Destin Bass as Patrick,  KB Dulude as Nicky and the baton twirling Tasha Taylor who plays Peggy Jones.

Director Chun has performed in the film Cello alongside master cellist, Lynn Harrell and in Monstrous starring Christina Ricci. Her experience as a well-rounded performer and creator makes her an exciting choice for this dynamic musical.

The show will open at 8 p.m. on Friday, September 1 and runs at 8 pm on Fridays and

Saturdays and 2 pm on Sundays through October 8. Theatre Palisades is located at 941 Temescal Canyon Road.
