In the tradition of the great couples who performed together, the Marshall County Arts Cooperative is bringing Patrick Dodd and Tracy Distefano to perform their variety show, “Patrick and Tracy Show,” on Friday and Saturday, March 7 and 8. The show, full of music and laughs, starts at 7:00 p.m. and will be at the Lee Dam Center for Fine Art, Marysville.
Tickets are $5.00 and may be purchased at the Chamber of Commerce office, Marysville. Advance tickets are encouraged since there is limited seating.
The show includes the hits of Motown, Broadway, the Rat Pack, and country and is infused with their special blend of humor.
“The show will definitely be a crowd pleaser,” said Wayne Kruse, the arts cooperative’s executive director. “With their performing background they definitely know how to put on a show that appeals to a wide audience. It’s great to have them back in the area again.”
The duo, who have performed together for nearly twenty years, took the stage at the Waterville Opera House several years ago in a musical revue called “Crazy Little Thing Called Love.” Currently, they both perform in Branson.
According to Dodd, they created this show to give back, as a way to say “thank you” to their fans.
“This show is the heart and soul of what we love to do – perform,” Dodd said. “Our goal for this show, which is going on its third year now, is to bring quality entertainment to everyone of all ages. Our hope is that when you leave our show you feel like you know us and we know you, as if we’re one big happy family sitting around the piano singing songs and telling jokes together. We love performing and we feel extremely blessed to be able to do it for a living.”
Dodd is the grandson of Pat and Helen Olmsted, Beattie.
