“SIBLING REVELRY”
Saturday, August 6
at 6 pm

$29 adult

When Tony-nominated sisters Ann Hampton Callaway and Liz Callaway combine musical forces, they put the revelry into rivalry in this award-winning show of great songs and witty banter. “Sibling Revelry” was first presented at New York’s Rainbow and Stars and continues to sellout halls across the country. Ann, an acclaimed pop/jazz singer and songwriter, wowed the Wildflower audience last year with her a cappella rendering of “Somewhere Over the Rainbow.” Liz is a Broadway veteran and recording artist. Put them together and this dynamic duo proves they are one singular sensation, whether singing Broadway showstoppers from “Chicago,” “Wicked” and “Cats” or rousing renditions of jazz and pop standards like “Happy Days/Get Happy,” “Friendship,” and their TV hit, the theme from “The Nanny.” Don’t miss this great night of talent!
