The Doo Wop Project Live at the Wayne Theatre

doo wop project liveSome of the greatest music in American pop and rock history is reimagined with the Doo Wop Project Live on Saturday, May 14, at 8 p.m. at the Historic Wayne Theatre/Ross Performing Arts Center in downtown Waynesboro.

Featuring current and former stars of Broadway’s smash hits Jersey Boys and Motown: The Musical, the Doo Wop Project brings unparalleled authenticity of sound and vocal excellence.

“It’s so exciting to bring a show of this caliber to Waynesboro,” said Tracy Straight, executive director of the Wayne Theatre/Ross Performing Arts Center. “This group is selling out everywhere.”

The Doo Wop Project is street corner singing for a whole new generation. Their show begins at the beginning, tracing the evolution of Doo Wop from the classic sound of five guys singing tight harmonies on a street corner to the biggest hits on the radio today.

Throughout the show, DWP takes you on a journey from foundational tunes of groups like the Crests, Belmonts and Flamingos through their influences on the sounds of Smokey Robinson, the Temptations, and the Four Seasons … all the way to Michael Jackson, Jason Mraz and Amy Winehouse.

“The connection they make with their audience is intimate,” said Straight. “You’ll want to get out of your seat, dance and sing along.”

The Doo Wop Project brings unparalleled authenticity of sound and vocal excellence to recreate – and in some cases entirely reimagine – some of the greatest music in American pop and rock history.

Enjoy a night filled with harmonies and classic ’60s hits such as Dion and the Belmonts’ “I Wonder Why”, Thurston Harris’ “Little Bitty Pretty One”, The Del-Vikings “Come and Go With Me”, The Capris’ “Morse Code of Love”, and many more. The show also includes doo-wop-inspired renditions of contemporary songs such as Amy Winehouse’s “Valerie”, Michael Jackson’s “The Way You Make Me Feel”, and Jason Mraz’s “I’m Yours”.

The level of talent, artistry and ability to entertain is off the charts with this show. It’s an evening of pure energy and magic, where you’ll be lifted from your seat with excitement by the power and charisma of these gifted young performers.

Tickets are $45 and $55 and available at the Wayne Theatre box office at 521 West Main Street Tuesday-Friday, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., and one hour before all performances. Tickets, when available, are also available online up to three hours before a performance at www.WayneTheatre.org
