Longtime Charleston producers and entertainers Brad and Jennifer Moranz have gathered a talented cast of musicians, singers and dancers for an all-new show this summer. The Charleston Variety runs for three performances July 20-21 at the Charleston Music Hall in downtown Charleston.
Featuring pop, rock and country favorites mixed with dancing and comedy skits, the Charleston Variety Show welcomes new performers and audience favorites.
Returning to the show are baritone Matthew Billman and Kindred Moore, who will perform “Rewrite the Stars” from “The Greatest Showman.” Crystal Garrett will perform “Never Enough,” another song from the popular movie.
Another musical favorite from the movie “A Star is Born” will be part of this year’s show. Jenna Flaherty will sing “Shallow,” the award-winning song by Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper and she’ll showcase her operatic talents singing “Think of Me” from “The Phantom of the Opera.” A staple in each Moranz Entertainment production is Tiffany Parker, who will perform “She Used to Be Mine” from the Broadway musical “Waitress.”
Gospel singer Rodney Archie returns to this Moranz Entertainment production for a rendition of Earth, Wind & Fire’s “Fantasy.”
Two new performers are sure to delight audiences. Michelle Rogers “sounds like she walked in here straight from Nashville,” Brad Moranz said. She will sing country classics “Why Haven’t I Heard from You?” by Reba McEntire and “Last Name” by Carrie Underwood. Kyle Lacy is a Brian Setzer-style rockabilly singer sure to have everyone grooving in their seats.
Plus, there will be a medley of Elton John classics, and violinist James Anderson will delight the audience with the Charlie Daniels version of “Orange Blossom Special.”
Of course, no Moranz Entertainment show is complete without comedy sketches and dance numbers featuring Brad and Jennifer Moranz.
“We have so much talent on stage, it’s remarkable,” Moranz said. “There’s no other show like this in Charleston. And even if you’ve been to our shows before, this one is entirely new and unlike anything you’ve seen before.”
