Theatre Philadelphia Office Closed for Thanksgiving on November 24th and 25th
Fan-favorite troubadour David M. Lutken leads a top-notch ensemble of musicians for two virtual hootenannies on May 14 and 17 – and y'all are invited! Each of these FREE special events includes a mix of pre-recorded songs, live jam sessions, and requests from the audience.
If you've never attended a live People's Light hootenanny before, here's how they usually go: after a performance, we invite the audience to stay behind and jam with the cast. We play some tunes, learn a few songs from the master, drink a few beers with our friends, and go to bed feeling joyful. This virtual hootenanny-at-home will be a first for everyone involved, so join us for this experiment to help lighten our hearts (and yours!) during this difficult time. Watch, listen, and bring your voice or favorite instrument to play and sing along. Only the musicians will be seen or heard throughout the live-streamed event, so show up when you can and leave when you need to. We just ask that you register in advance so we can get a headcount.
“There’s only one rule at a hootenanny: if you know the words, you have to sing! And the corollary to that is—once we’ve done the chorus ten or fifteen times, you ought to know the words!” — David Lutken
Starts at 7:30pm
