Barbershoppers and Show Stoppers


Mon, Sep 12th, 2011
Posted in Arts & Culture

Enjoy a great show and give a hand to the Chatfield Center for the Arts renovation of Potter Auditorium at the same time.

The Rochester Music Men Barbershop Chorus will team up with singing stars from Wits' End Theatre to present a lively variety show in the historic Potter Auditorium on Saturday, September 17 at 7:00 p.m. Tickets, available at the door, are $8.00 for adults, $2.00 for children six and under. Potter Auditorium has been home to dozens of Broadway shows for the last 41 years of Western Days Musicals, so it is a fitting site for a tribute to this great and uniquely American art form.

The air-conditioned Potter is located on Highway 52 and Fifth Street in Chatfield. Wits' End Theatre has produced eight fantastic musicals at Potter, including the recently concluded The King and I, one of Rodgers & Hammerstein's greatest successes.

Come enjoy the big a capella sound of the Music Men and the exciting renditions of Broadway show-stoppers by the Wits' End Singers. The 24-man Music Men chorus includes members from Chatfield, Preston, Harmony, Plainview, and other Southern Minnesota communities as well as Rochester. You may have seen them perform on the Eagles Cancer Telethon last winter.

For more information about the chorus, go to rochestermusicmen.org. For Wits' End, go to witsendtheatre.org. Proceeds of the show will go for Potter renovations and upgrades. For more on Potter and the Chatfield Center for the Arts, go to chatfieldcfa.com.
