OAKHURST – Many people know the popular works in the late 1800’s through the early 1900’s, but what people often don’t know is the contribution women made to the entertainment of the time.
The Golden Chain Theatre plans to change all that with “The Women of Tin Pan Alley,” a nostalgic musical revue celebrating the women who anonymously created many popular standards of radio, film and stage in the Tin Pan Alley era (1885 to 1940).
Live performances of many classic numbers such as “I Can’t Give You Anything But Love,” “The Way You Look Tonight” and “I Feel a Song Coming on.” will all be a part of this rousing production.
“The Ladies of Tin Pan Alley” is written and directed by Jennifer Piccolotti, and was born out of a desire to tell the story of women who contributed significantly to the golden era of music with little or no credit.
Talent and drive were not enough to push past the social barriers that held many of these women back from realizing their dreams. So Piccolotti wrote a story about a young, bright-eyed, talented girl who would be taken advantage of, and learn the hard way that the business of music can be so unkind.
Through her journey she will learn about what it takes to live her dream, and even help some find their way back to a path that was thought to have been lost forever.
There will be live music and dancing before each show, presented at 7 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays, 2 p.m. on Sundays, November 8, 9, 10, 15, 16, 17, 22, 23, 24.
