Wacky Wednesdays Presents Debbie and Friends
South Shore Conservatory – South Shore Conservatory’s (SSC) Wacky Wednesdays family concert series invites families to become part of the show on July 26 at 10 am, as they present high energy entertainer Debbie and Friends. This concert is the final of four family-friendly Wednesday morning performances in the Jane Carr Amphitheater, One Conservatory Drive in Hingham this summer. The show goes on, rain or shine. Wacky Wednesdays is one of two series in the Conservatory’s diverse Summer Spotlight outdoor summer entertainment series. The family series is sponsored by The Harold and Avis Goldstein Trust, with WATD as the media partner. Summer Spotlight also includes Evenings Under the Stars Saturday evening concerts. From the moment the Debbie and Friends band launches into their first song, “I’m Glad You’re Here,” the children in the crowd understand their role: to participate, sing, dance, jump and interact with the performers. As the lyrics suggest, "you're part of the show." From that high-energy opener to the ecstatic ending, the pacing of a Debbie and Friends show perfectly aligns with the attention spans of their young audience. They rock out and get the kids dancing in a theatre-sized conga line, and then they'll bring them down gently to relax and engage in more attentive ways. Drawing heavily from fairytales that kids will already be familiar with, Debbie and Friends presents enough lyrical updates to keep these stories fresh, and to keep everybody, including the parents, tuned in and laughing! Debbie and Friends has been honored with 25 national awards including the 2011 Grammy Award for their part on the Best Children’s Album that year with their anti-bullying song “Walk Away.” SSC's Jane Carr Amphitheater completely updated its sound and lighting systems in 2015. Funding for this project was provided by the Massachusetts Cultural Facilities Fund, a program of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, administered through a collaborative arrangement between MassDevelopment and the Massachusetts Cultural Council. SSC is also grateful to the individuals who generously donated the matching funds required as part of this grant. Tickets for family concerts are $15 for adults and $5 for children. Special packages are available for groups of 10 or more. There is no charge for children under three. Tickets may be purchased online at http://www.sscmusic.org/wacky_wednesdays.html or by calling 781-749-7565, ext. 22.
