A Taffeta Christmas pays tribute to the sounds of The McGuire Sisters, The Fontane Sisters and The Chordettes. The show is set in the Moose Lodge in “America’s Hometown” Muncie, Indiana, where The Dumont Television Network is featuring the Taffetas, four singing sisters on its weekly television show “Hometown Hoedown.” The quartet sing a combination of period hits, new songs and holiday favorites. Spend an hour and a half with Kaye, Peggy, Cheryl and Donna and remember what Sunday night television was like on your 12-inch black and white screen!
The Taffetas will be played by Stefanie Adams (Norwood), Jennifer Keith (Union, KY), Sue Kramer (Delhi) and Jennifer Reinshagen (Delhi). They will be accompanied by a three-piece band comprised of Linda Abbott, Eric Day and Charles Kleesattel. Ms. Abbott also serves as both director and musical director.
Ms. Abbott says that “A Taffeta Christmas is the perfect evening out for those who remember the gentle humor of television variety shows and the pleasant harmonies of girl groups in the ‘50’s. You’re bound to hear your favorite hit songs of the period, as well as, your favorite Christmas tunes up close and personal in the intimate Glenmore Playhouse. I can’t think of a more delightful way to celebrate the holidays with your spouse or your friends.”
