‘Knockoffs at the Pina Colada’ wraps Sunday
February 15, 2013
Off Broadstreet Theatre's run of "Knockoffs at the Pina Colada" comes to an end this weekend. The theatre has added a special final performance at 7:15 p.m. tomorrow, in addition to its regularly scheduled show at 8:15 tonight.
The original production features the talents of well-known OBS performers Jed Dixon, Nancy Keith and Danny McCammon, as well as vocalist Lyra Dominguez.
A financially strapped young newlywed couple arrives at a funky little establishment in Bucerias, Mexico, known as The Pina Colada, only to discover the true price of their "free" honeymoon stay: They are expected to replace the absent owners as celebrity impersonators in a stage show to attract multi-millionaire investors to the town. Complicating the situation is the realization that the bride's disapproving father is one of the potential investors in the audience.
The entertainment opens with a "Jay Leno" knockoff, who announces a star-studded program with well-known performers like ABBA, Liza Minelli, Elton John, Christina Aguilera and Antonio Banderas.
Musical selections include La Bamba, Pinball Wizard, Something's Got A Hold On Me, Peppermint Twist, Mama Mia, Friends in Low Places are and Jailhouse Rock, plus more than two dozen more well-known popular songs by Elvis, Garth Brooks, Lady Gaga and others. There are also recreations of popular TV shows Cheers and Star Trek. With plenty of laughs and great music, "Knockoffs at the Pina Colada" is suitable for all audiences.
Tickets are $25. To make a reservation call 530-265-8686. For more about the show, visit http://www.offbroadstreet.com.
