Concert recalls Vaudeville acts

BELLFLOWER - In a fun and nostalgic look back to yesteryear, the Bellflower Civic Chorus will present its fall concert, "Vaudeville," at the Bristol Auditorium in Bellflower Sept. 10-12.The chorus will perform time-tested tunes from the early part of the 20th century. A popular form of entertainment in the 1920's, vaudeville-style shows were the testing ground for new songs and acts. The chorus will perform the hits of the time, including "Anything Goes," "Tea for Two," "Carolina in the Morning," "Toot, Toot, Tootsie," "Goo'Bye" and "Bye Bye Blackbird." The performances will also incorporate mimes, belly dancers and clowns. Shows are scheduled for Sept. 10 at 7 p.m. and matinees Sept. 11-12 at 2:30 p.m. Tickets are $5 and available by visiting a chorus rehearsal Tuesday night at Simms Park Recreation Center or by sending a check and self-addressed stamped envelope to Bellflower Civic Chorus, P.O. Box 1058, Bellflower CA 90707. Tickets are occasionally available at the door.
