The Eagle Theatre continues its main-stage season with a three week run of My Way: A Musical Tribute to Frank Sinatra, opening on August 10. The premier Sinatra experience, this production will feature widely recognized regional talent performing an ambitious repertoire of songs made famous by the man fondly remembered as "The Voice."
The Eagle Theatre is located at 208 Vine Street in Hammonton, NJ. The setting is appropriate, as Hammonton is noted as having the highest percentage of Italian-Americans in the Garden State. In August, this proud heritage will be celebrated by paying homage to one of the most famous Italian-Americans in music history.
A live four-piece band will accompany the vocalists, who will include Brian Bortnick of Philadelphia, PA; Eric Cecilio of Williamtown, NJ; Jennie Knackstedt of Collingswood, NJ; and Nikki Giapoutzis of Hammonton, NJ. Bortnick, a Philadelphia born and raised musician and a graduate of the University of the Arts, has toured nationally with numerous notable performers, including American Idol Season 6 finalist Chris Sligh. Audiences may recall seeing Bortnick in the role of Roger Davis in the Eagle Theatre's recent production of RENT.
My Way: A Musical Tribute to Frank Sinatra, will run at 8pm on August 10, 11, 16, 17, 18, 23, 24 and 25; and 3pm on August 12 and 19. Tickets are $22 General Admission, plus applicable fees, and can be purchased at TheEagleTheatre.com, or by calling the box office at (609) 704-5012.
