The Show Must Go Online!

+ More Info

Directed by Alyssa Rae Surrette & Eric Balboni

.

Produced by Beat by Beat Press.

A frazzled Drama teacher sends a video message to her students from her home office, announcing that their production of Brushes With Greatness: The Dental Hygiene Musical has been canceled! She tries to hang up, but accidentally leaves the camera running, as she receives a phone call from the principal who tells her: without the musical, the drama program will be shut down! So the kids pull together to present a virtual original musical performance to save their drama program!

Patrons wishing to view this play are asked to purchase the same amount of tickets for family/friends viewing this performance that you would if you were attending the performance live in our theater. The performance will be presented Friday August 7th @ 7 pm via a private Zoom webinar link which will be provided to ticket holders one hour in advance. 

In an effort to help support Enter Stage Left Theater and the Hopkinton Center for the Arts during this unprecedented time, please consider purchasing an "extra" ticket as a donation . We deeply appreciate the support, and can't wait until we are all able to gather for live performances!

When you think of Craig Carter and The Hurricane, think Neil Young meets Jeff Beck. Carter’s distinctive smooth and powerful vocal style and Sciore’s explosive and mesmerizing lead guitar work, coupled with the heart pounding rhythm section of George Blier on bass and Denis Semperbon on drums, provide an undeniably exciting musical experience.

Calling on many decades of varied musical experience their repertoire encompasses a diverse mix of Rock, Blues and Americana. With their excellent musicianship and four part vocals, they seamlessly blend original material along with deep covers by bands such as the Beatles, Steve Earle, the Wood Brothers, the Stones, the Allman Brothers, Neil Young, Delbert McClinton, Muddy Waters and countless others. Their upbeat folksy style and brotherly interaction invite you to join them on a musical ride you won’t soon forget!
