“Taffeta Memories” Comes to Colonie’s Cook Park
Take a spin back to America of Happier Days as we celebrate the reunion of the sister singing group, the Taffetas at the Village of Colonie Theater in the Park. These four sassy ladies will be performing Taffeta Memories, produced by the Farmer’s Market of the Village of Colonie. This production will be performed outdoors at the beautiful Frank A. Leak Amphitheater for the Arts in Cook Park tonight (June 15) through Sunday, June 18. Admission is FREE.
Directed by Michael C. Mensching, with musical direction by Alex Malsan, the musical comedy features The Taffetas, four singing sisters from Muncie, Indiana who in the were the talk of the town back in the 1950s. Now almost a half-century later, they are putting on a reunion show. However, their reunion is bittersweet, with a last minute departure of singing sister Deb. But never fear, this awesome alto didn’t storm out in a diva fit, but was presented a surprise opportunity for a major life-sustaining operation.
Please join us in sending thoughts and prayers to that Swinging Sister, and in welcoming baby sister Jane, fresh from a solo tour and ready to join her older sisters and create a wonderful reunion event. Gosh, it’s just like when little-now-all-grown-up Janet Jackson toured with the Jackson Five…
