Laura Roth to perform solo country show this Saturday

A whole group of famous female country singers will appear in the person of Laura Roth this weekend at the Whitehall Armory.

The Bridge Theatre will present Roth in “The 1960’s Grand Ol’ Opry” at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, July 14.

A veteran cabaret singer and comedian, Roth will perform as Brenda Lee, Dolly Parton, Tammy Wynette and Patsy Cline in this one-person show.

Roth has appeared on television, radio, and the stage in a variety of singing and acting roles. She has studied the mannerisms and styles of some of the most iconic female performers from the 20th and 21st centuries and has 125 costumes and dozens of characters whom she portrays on stage, including Cher, Barbra Streisand, Betty Grable, Liza Minelli, Mae West and many more.

Tickets for the show are on sale at the Wood Theater in Glens Falls and can be purchased through the theater’s online box office. Tickets will also be available at the door the day of the performance. Prices range from $15 to $19, and food and refreshments will be available.

Following Roth’s performance, the cabaret season continues with the Matt Maguire Jazz Quartet at 7:30 p.m. on July 28, and Paul Stillman as Benjamin Franklin at 2 p.m. on Aug. 4. The latter show will benefit local Boy Scout Troop 83.

For more information, call Martin Kelly, Bridge Theatre’s artistic director, at 874-0800, or by email at markell2@localnet.com.
