Sweet Adelines presents night at the barbershop


An array of musicians will present barbershop quartet melodies Saturday night at Moffat County High School.

The Yampa Valley Chapter of Sweet Adelines, an international women's group that promotes barbershop quartet harmonies, will present "Anchors Away," a barbershop quartet musical using the theme from "The Love Boat" television show.

"We wanted to do a cruise ship show and take people to where it's sunny and warm because it's been so cold lately," said Mary Lynn James, Sweet Adelines publicity chairperson.

The show will revolve around barbershop quartet music, but the storyline will be carried by several local volunteer actors, including an undisclosed member of the police department, a high school teacher and Kiwanis Club members.

Four different barbershop quartets will be part of the performance including "Young Women in Harmony," "Treblemakers," "High in Harmony" and "Rocky Tops."

The "Rocky Tops," from Glenwood Springs, have been together for five years and keep busy singing for local clubs, organizations and special community events.

The group is a unique blend of personalities and occupational backgrounds.

One is a plumbing contractor, another a Chevy dealer, the third a retired engineer and the final member of the group, a librarian at a Glenwood Springs Elementary School.

James said the "Rocky Tops" should be a treat.

"I haven't seen them, but people who have say they're very entertaining," she said.

The show begins at 7:30 p.m. Saturday night at the Moffat County High School Auditorium.

Tickets are $8 for adults, and $5 for seniors citizens and children under 11.

Tickets can be purchased at the door.
