Company of Fools 2018 Celebration & Benefit
March 29 & 30, 2018

Channel the glamour of old Hollywood and join us as we celebrate Company of Fools. The evening pays loving tribute to the singers and songs of the silver screen when Broadway leading lady Teri Bibb performs ONCE UPON A SONG: A TRIBUTE TO THE GOLDEN VOICES OF THE SILVER SCREEN. Bibb is joined by Musical Director R.L. Rowsey.

Teri Bibb in ONCE UPON A SONG comes to the Liberty Theatre for two-performances-only: March 29th Company of Fools Gala performance with reception and after-party starting at 5:30pm and March 30 public performance at 7pm.


 

Bibb’s soaring soprano has thrilled audiences across the continent and throughout the world. In addition to performing on Broadway and tour as Christine in The Phantom of the Opera (more than 1,000 performances), she has given a command performance at the White House, on ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars,” and on the stages of Radio City Music Hall, Carnegie Hall and London’s Royal Albert Hall. In this tribute, Bibb shares her personal connection to the women who inspired her and helped shape her career. The concert features tunes from classic golden era films sung by Jane Powell, Kathryn Grayson, Judy Garland, Julie Andrews, Shirley Jones, and more, and is an evening of glorious singing, stories and a musical surprise or two.
