“We’re getting very excited about our spring show coming up in just a few days now,” announces Chordaires Spring Show Chair Sandra Boycynesky with exuberance, “We’ve been getting ready for months and can’t wait to share all the fun with our audience.”

Sun Flakes Frivolity will be performed at 3:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. Sunday, April 12 in the San Tan Ballroom at the Cottonwood Clubhouse in Sun Lakes. Tickets are available now at the Cottonwood Palo Verde Administration Building, 25219 S. EJ Robson Blvd, and will also be sold at the door. Cost is $15.

Sun Flakes Frivolity is a witty and charming spoof of Sun Lakes living,” Sandy continues, “Our show features Sun Lakes Community Theatre regulars, sassy Sandy Ilsen and riotous Ted Peck, as potential ‘Sun Flakes’ residents Mr. and Mrs. Snodgrass. They get an earful about all the wonderful features of our community from Sun Flakes Activities Director Belinda Bacon. Not coincidentally, Linda Caton, Cottonwood Palo Verde Activities Director and talented actress, takes on the role for our show! The chorus is introduced as a ‘state of the art marketing tool’ to lyrically give the Snodgrasses ideas about what to expect in ‘Sun Flakes.’ We’ll be doing a rousing rendition of Zippedeedoodah, a moving interpretation of Sunrise, Sunset and a very entertaining spoof of My Favorite Things, among others. Hope you’ll join us!”

“It‘s been such a joy preparing for this,” advises Chordaires Director Dr. Adam Thome, “It is a privilege to work with these ladies who put so much effort into learning all their music and choreography as well. I’m sure our audience will get as much pleasure out of listening to them sing as I do.”

“Last year we had two standing ovations at our spring show Noah’s Follies, Welcome Aboard, notes Chordaires President, Jana Greene, “We hope for the same enthusiasm this year! We also will again be donating part of our proceeds back to the Sun Lakes community, so if you come, you won’t just be supporting the Chordaires, but all of us Sun Lakers as well.”

“We’d like newcomers to our community to know the Chordaires always welcome new members,” invites Chordaires Performance Coordinator Chris Roen, “We meet Monday evenings for rehearsals as a whole, and usually one other time per week in our voice sectionals. Specializing in four-part barbershop harmony, we are an all-woman a capella group. Presently we have about 40 members. Most people are familiar with the songs we sing from the radio, movies and Broadway productions. In addition to our annual spring show, we also perform at Christmastime in several local venues. If you would like to book the Chordaires or The Ambassadors, our mini-me version, for a private party or club, please contact me at 786-6969. We’d also like to let everyone know this is our 35th year of existence – we must be doing something right!”
