An event every week that begins at 7:30 pm on Sunday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday, repeating until June 6, 2021
Westcoast Black Theatre Troupe is thrilled to continue its “Light Up the Night!” open-air concert series with “Sistas in the Name of Soul.” This celebration of the female soul and R&B artists of the ‘70s (and some from the late ‘60s) will run from Saturday, May 8 through Sunday, June 6. Featured vocalists for the show are Ariel Blue, Syreeta Shonteé, Delores McKenzie and Stephanie Zandra. Audiences will enjoy hits by renowned artists such as Freda Payne, Aretha Franklin, The Supremes, Gladys Knight and the Pips, Donna Summer and The Pointer Sisters. Favorites will include “I’m So Excited,” “Midnight Train to Georgia,” “Respect,” “Bad Girl” and “Band of Gold,” among many others. The performance will be enhanced by brand new dance routines created by WBTT’s Resident Choreographer Donald Frison. The “Sistas” performers will be backed by WBTT’s electrifying live band: Brennan Stylez, music director/keyboard, Lynette Williams on auxiliary keys, Brad Foutch on guitar, Mathew McKinnon on bass, and Etienne “EJ” Porter and Mike Andrews taking turns on drums. COVID-19 protocols – temperature checks upon entry, distanced seating and mandatory masks – remain in place. Performances are Tuesdays through Sundays at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $40/person with seating in socially distanced parties of one or two.
