Have you ever wanted to go out and see the Baltimore Rock Opera Society but couldn’t because you have young kids? We get it. And that’s why, on Saturday May 11, WTMD’s Saturday Morning Tunes is thrilled to present an exclusive sneak preview of Baltimore Rock Opera Society’s brand new production, “Welcome to Shakesville.”
“Welcome to Shakesville” is a puppet filled romp through the magical world of 1960s psychedelia.
Jimmy Graves and the Sonic Waves are the new sensation that’s sweeping the nation, but their catchy songs wouldn’t exist without the talented Betty Vega, who works tirelessly behind the scenes to make their music the magic that it is, without any of the credit. When their lead singer disappears under mysterious circumstances, Betty has to go where no woman has gone before: the magical music-powered, puppet-filled world of Shakesville.
The songs are steeped in the popular musical styles of the time with a special focus on psychedelic rock and a dash of early ’60s surf rock.
Tickets are available now.
This show is at WTMD’s performance studio, at 1 Olympic Place in Towson. Doors open at 9 a.m. and the music starts at 9:30 a.m. Admission includes bicycle rides and snacks (for the kids), coffee (for the adults) and more.
Plus, Eddie’s of Roland Park celebrates their 75th anniversary with complimentary slices of birthday cake!
“Welcome to Shakesville” officially debuts May 24. More information here.
