Come join the Mecklenburg Bar Revue and its special guests for an evening of song, dance, general buffoonery, and much laughter, all for a great cause! You'll be treated to at least 10 (maybe more--its been a crazy year, and just keeps getting crazier) parody song-and-dance numbers from some of the Mecklenburg County Bar's finest--er, well--AVAILABLE entertainers. No state or national politician is immune, no aspect of practicing law too sacred for these plucky performers and their piercing plethora of puns and pontifications. Prepare to be wowed--or at least mildly amused, by such instant crowd favorites as, "Bernie Sanders, Bring me a Dream," "Dear Candidate Trumpke," and President Obama's lame-duck lament, "2016, going on 17."
Each ticket includes two glasses of beer or wine, plus light hors d'oeurvres.
Guests can purchase extra wine and beer tickets for $10/glass.
YOUR EVENING SCHEDULE: *
7:30-8:15: Drinks & Hors d'oeuvres
8:15-9:30: SHOWTIME!! The Mecklenburg Bar Revue presents its latest original festival o' political parodies, "Electoral Dysfunctionality Disorder!" Featuring a showstopping (well,show-starting) opening dance number by Felipe Gonzalez and Darinka Divljak of Midtown Ballroom and Clare Talley, wife of the Bar Revue's own beloved Jim Talley.
*Sadly, no CLE credit will be provided for the viewing of this show, despite the timelinesss and legal nature of the topics addressed ,the witty and enlightening content of each carefully crafted parody song, and the fact that watching some of the dance numbers may be just as painful and interminable. (And heck, you don't even have to be a lawyer to attend, anyway!)
Wait, hasn't this show been presented before?
Why yes, yes it has. The Bar Revue made its much-ballyhooed and long-awaited return to the stage earlier this year on Saturday night at the NCBA Annual Meeting at the NASCAR Hall of Fame in Charlotte. If you saw it then, you are welcome to see it again!
So are these Bar Revue people, like, famous?
Well, not exactly... But they have performed for the annual meeting of the American Bar Association in Washingtn, DC. (Eat your hearts out, Capitol Steps!)
What are my transportation/parking options getting to the event?
Our venue has lots of free parking. **If you wil be consuming alcoholic beverages, please make arrangements for a designated driver, or alternative means of transportation.
Where can I contact the organizer with any questions?
Contact Nancy Norelli at firstname.lastname@example.org or 704.376.5484
Do they really let Doug Sea and Manley Roberts sing solos?
Well, yes. We do provide a disclaimer that the show is not all suitable for family watching... (After all, one cannot have a political parody show without ol' Slick Willie Himself, Bill Clinton.)
Is my registration/ticket transferrable?
Sure, why not?
