Tumblin' Tumbleweeds debut Feb. 8 as Lonely Street's new production
Drive the herd back to the fields and mosey on over to the Elks Theatre and Performing Arts Center Sunday, Feb. 8, as Lonely Street Productions presents Tumblin' Tumbleweeds. A salute to the ballads and songs of the old west starring Michael Goodman, the show will have old fashion western hits that capture the essence of Arizona and the old west. Minus the coyotes of course.
Lonely Street Productions Director of Operations Trish Thayer said Tumblin' Tumbleweeds is a new show the company is putting on. She said the idea came about because old western music is quite popular in the area.
"Arizona folks like their western music," Thayer said, noting the show will have hits from classic crooners, such as Gene Autry, Marty Robbins, the Sons of the Pioneers and Roy Rogers and classic tunes like "Cool Water," "El Paso," "The Last Roundup," "Don't Fence Me In" and "Tumblin' Tumbleweeds."
And singing those hits is Michael Goodman, a Lonely Street favorite who was featured in "A Classic Country Christmas" in December and "Class of '65" last month. Alongside him are the cowboy crooners: Tim Gallagher, Evan Dain and Peter Rolland.
Thayer said the shows Lonely Street Productions puts on are directed to bring the audience in touch with their nostalgic memories or passions. And this show is for those who love westerns.
"Whether it's old movies or where they grew up," Thayer said. "It's also representative of Arizona as well."
Thayer also said that those whose cup of tea might not exactly be western music would also enjoy the show.
The cowboys start crooning at 7 p.m. at the Prescott Elks Theatre and Performing Arts Center, located at 117 E. Gurley St.
