The Whidbey Island Center for the Arts Theater Series presents The Rural Characters, in concert to benefit the WICA Local Artist Series, May 18-19, 2012, shows areat 7:30 pm.
The Rural Characters began singing together in 1997 and in 2003 the Characters won a spot in WICA’s Local Artist Series. That concert, “16 Chickens and a Tambourine” went so well that WICA invited them to return the next year to do a show to benefit the Series. The next year the show expanded to two nights, and then it was a tradition.
This year marks the 10th Anniversary, and will feature the Characters’ favorite songs and shenanigans from over the years–with a few new numbers sprinkled in. Because it has been so hard for the guys to choose what songs to leave out, they are giving fair warning that you should plan on being up past bedtime, and your cheeks are going to hurt.
The Characters have had many wonderful guests perform with them through the years, and wish to thank them all sincerely for their talents and support.
Before the Saturday show, The Rural Characters will play an intimate pre-concert show. Maximum 30 people, there are only five tickets left. Price is $75 and gets you into the Beer 'N Brats event AND seats for the evening concert, which starts at 7:30pm. This is a WICA Fundraiser Event.
The Whidbey Island Center for the Arts is located at 565 Camano Ave., Langley, WA.
TICKETS: All tickets $20. For info call the WICA ticket office 360/221.8268 or 800/638.7631.
