Itinerant Theatre is excited to host The Magnolia Sisters! This Grammy-nominated SWLA musical troupe starts its night’s playing right after the final “Cleoma ~ A First” performance concludes. The Saturday evening kicks off at 7pm. That means the Sisters will begin at approximately 8pm. All occurs at The Annex, Imperial Calcasieu Museum, 204 W. Sallier St., Lake Charles, 70601. The ICM is our terrific co-host for this weekend of live theatre and live music, and they will have refreshment for sale.
Since the troupe is setting up on the Annex’s porch, the event will be indoors and outdoors. Your choice. Tickets will not sell out for The Magnolia Sisters. (“Cleoma ~ A First”… will sell out, so, get those tickets now.)
This talented all-female troupe specializes in musical genres and sub-genres particular to SWLA. They will play Cajun, country, Creole, front porch ballads; there are blues and jazz influences throughout. They play acoustic instruments; they may switch instruments mid-song; they sing some songs a capella, and what a treat that is. Their muse is Cleoma Breaux Falcon herself who has informed quite a bit of the Sisters’ repetoire. They are, in a word, balladeers and students of their music.
Special guest musician for the evening is Christine Balfa, of the famed musical Balfa family.
Join us. If you see ANY “Cleoma” performance, your separate $10 ticket to the Magnolia Sisters is discounted 50%, paid the night of the performance.
