The North Charleston Cultural Arts Department is set to host another dinner theatre performance in North Charleston on Friday, February 5, with Puttin’ on the Ritz presented by Gracie and Lacy. This program will be an exciting display of the popular swing dance and jazz music that was taking over the cities of New York and New Orleans in the 1920s and 30s. Dinner for the evening is catered by Embassy Suites and includes an entrée of chicken saltimbocca with sage, prosciutto, provolone, and parmesan peppercorn alouette cream. Tickets are on sale until Tuesday, February 2.
In Puttin’ on the Ritz powerhouse duo Gracie & Lacy will present a classy performance showcasing the music, glamour, and pizzazz of the Swing Era. The sisters boldly bridge the generations, bringing vintage Hollywood to life in vivid color through harmonies with that Andrews Sisters flair, energetic tap routines, and vintage-inspired costuming. Selections for the evening include Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy, Sisters, Puttin’ On The Ritz, and more.
