The Elks Theatre & Performing Arts Center is presenting singer/songwriter and comedienne Celia Farran at 7 p.m. Sunday, March 15, in the third-floor Crystal Hall.
Described as an earthy Enjya, Joan Baez and Tina Fey, Farran presents a combination of the silly and sacred, able to transform on stage into one or more of her alter egos who can leave the audience howling with laughter. Her heartfelt vocals and comedic improvisations leave the audience never knowing what’s going to come next.
Tickets are $20 in advance on www.eventbrite.com/o/celia-1944644889 or $25 on the day of the show. Seating is limited.
The Elks Theatre & Performing Arts Center is located at 117 E. Gurley St.
