SDGMC Motown: The Music + The Legends at the Balboa Theatre
Get ready for the ride of your life at MOTOWN--the MOST FUN show of the spring! All your favorite classics from superstars like Stevie Wonder, Diana Ross & the Supremes, Lionel Richie, Gladys Knight & the Pips and the Jackson 5. Join our 250 singers and dancers for music that roared out of Detroit and took a nation by storm. Tickets available HERE.
Just wait till you see our fun and bouffant-fabulous versions of “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough,” “Midnight Train to Georgia,” and the sweltering “Heatwave.” We see lots of hairspray, wigs and costume changes in our future!
We will also pay tribute to Motown’s impact on American society, coming at a time when music and civil rights intertwined with songs like Marvin Gaye’s “What’s Going On” and Diana Ross’ first solo hit “Reach Out and Touch (Somebody’s Hand)”--inspiring a generation.
Don’t miss this chance to relive the days when all you needed was an AM radio and your favorite stack of 45s!
