Last 7 days we introduced the demonstrates comprising Surflight Theatre’s primary stage 2022 season. This week we’ll look at off the concerts, comedy reveals and children’s theater choices that will spherical out the Beach Haven landmark’s calendar upcoming year.
The season will kick off with Presidents’ Working day weekend performances by The Jersey Tenors. They’ll be singing up a storm on Saturday, Feb. 19 at 7:30 p.m. and on Sunday, Feb. 20 at 2 p.m. Tickets are $39.50 and may possibly be reserved by calling 609-492-9477 or by going to the box workplace, located at 201 Engleside Ave., Beach front Haven.

To start with, of class, there were being the 3 Tenors – the operatic superstars Luciano Pavarotti, Placido Domingo and Jose Carreras – in the 1990s and early 2000s. They had been adopted by the Irish Tenors, 3 Region Tenors, apparently at minimum two sets, perhaps three, of A few Sopranos like a Brazilian model, and Three Baritones. So why not the Jersey Tenors?
They are not the Three Jersey Tenors because there are eight of them, though only 4 normally complete at a single time. All eight are singers and actors – in other terms musical theater performers, lots of with Broadway credits, so they have to juggle gigs. Their displays are mash-ups, combining opera classics with rock tunes from the likes of Queen, Journey, Elton John and Billy Joel. Correct to their title, they also accomplish hits from Jersey legends these kinds of as Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons, Bon Jovi and, of program, Springsteen and Sinatra. You can test them out on YouTube – they glance and seem like a complete lotta enjoyable!
Get Delighted! That is the title of two shows on Monday, June 27, the very first at 5 p.m. followed by the second at 8 p.m. It is a tribute to Judy Garland, whilst singer Jenna Pastuszek and Broadway audio director Joshua Zecher-Ross pressure Garland’s music rather of striving to impersonate the legend, who would have been 100 decades outdated in June 2022. As a Surflight blurb says, “Lifelong Judy fans will really like the cleverly curated playlist of beloved classics and forgotten gems while millennials and Gen. Z’ers will find an artist who genuinely transcends time.”
Pastuszek’s musical renderings can be witnessed on YouTube, and to say she’s effective would be an understatement.
Tickets are $39.50 and may possibly be reserved as previously mentioned.
On Monday, July 25 a concert referred to as “Great Balls of Fire” will be done at 5:30 p.m. and then at 8 p.m. It celebrates the job of Jerry Lee Lewis.
Lewis could have challenged Elvis as the king of rock ’n’ roll if he hadn’t married his 13-year-previous initial cousin when-eradicated just as the 22-year-old’s career was using off like a rocket. Without a doubt, a rocket may well be a great way to explain Jerry Lee’s onstage energy, which obtained him referred to as “rock & roll’s initially fantastic wild person.”
Jason Cohen, primary a five-piece band, will bring Jerry Lee’s exhilaration to Beach Haven, singing some 20 of “The Killer’s” tunes, like hits these kinds of as “Good Golly Pass up Molly,” “Shake, Rattle, and Roll” and, of study course, “Great Balls of Hearth.” Cohen has performed the rock ’n’ roll icon in in excess of 80 cities throughout the region, with BroadwayWorld contacting him “dangerously explosive.” Like a rocket.
Tickets are – you guessed it – $39.50 and may perhaps be requested, very well, you know now.
Who could potentially stick to a foursome of tenors and the audio of Judy Garland and Jerry Lee Lewis? Perfectly, how about Sonny & Cher, Billy Joel, Elton John, Neil Diamond, Lionel Richie, Stevie Speculate, Ray Charles, Girl Gaga, Celine Dion, Rod Stewart, Barbara Streisand, Bette Midler, Andrea Bocelli and Tom Jones, to title a several? The Edwards Twins, planet-course male and feminine impersonators supreme, will be returning to Surflight, where by they have grow to be viewers favorites. Examine them out on YouTube. They are very little limited of extraordinary, executing their possess singing – no lip syncing below – and positively nailing some 150 performers, even when donning false teeth that seem a lot more like the choppers of the stars they replicate.
They’ll be undertaking at 5 and 8 p.m. on Monday, Aug, 8. Tickets are $39.50. You would be recommended to purchase early for these reveals.
Alright, we dwell in New Jersey, appropriate? So we all like Bruce Springsteen. Well, if you don’t, probably you need to think about a go to Texas.
So it is not astonishing that Surflight is bringing again a different audience preferred, the “Ultimate Springsteen Tribute: Promised Land,” at 5:30 and 8 p.m. on Monday, Aug. 29. The three core associates of the band, Kenny, Mike and Rob, have played together considering the fact that they were 15, and they have had The Boss and the Jersey Shore functioning via their veins considering the fact that they opened for the E Street Band’s Nils Lofgren at the Stone Pony in 1990.
At the time again, you’ll fork out $39.50 for tickets.
The Beatles were the biggest rock/pop musical group in history. Oh, you might prefer the Stones or the Who, or Bruce and the E Road Band or any other band, but occur on, you have to defer to the 4 lads from Liverpool when it arrives to naming the most influential team at any time. They led the British Invasion, they wrote hit after hit, they absolutely transformed their style in midstream, they – very well, what else can you say about them?
So the concert display at Surflight on Thanksgiving weekend 2022 will be “The Conquer Tells: A Tribute to the Beatles.” The tribute band will protect the Beatles’ entire run, from their Mop Top/Ed Sullivan days by their tours in 1965-66, featuring tracks from “Rubber Soul” and “Revolver” into “Sgt.
