MARIETTA — The 3 Redneck Tenors will be bringing Broadway to Marietta with 3 Redneck Tenors: Broadway Bound at the Earl and Rachel Smith Strand Theatre on January 11-12, 2020. Based out of Dallas, TX, the Tenors have been seen as top 10 finalists on America’s Got Talent, on Larry The Cable Guy’s Only in America, and live in theaters across the nation.
The 3 Redneck Tenors are a new breed in the “tenor genre” – their musical comedy featuring classically trained veteran artists is like Duck Dynasty goes to Carnegie Hall. Written by opera-veteran Matthew Lord with music arranged by award-winning composer Craig Bohmler, and starring Mr. Lord, Blake Davidson, and Jonathan Frugé, the 3 Redneck Tenors have been thrilling audiences since 2006.
In 3 Redneck Tenors: Broadway Bound, these trailer park singing sensations have a great many stories to tell, taking audiences on a side splitting ride of comedy and audience interaction.
Audiences spend an evening wowed the veteran voices of these three cousins as they stampede their way through Broadway’s greatest hits, featuring tunes from such favorite shows as “Phantom of the Opera,” “The Sound of Music,” “Annie,” “Les Miserables,” “A Chorus Line” and many others.
