On Sunday, November 6, a decently sized crowd at the Lester Centre of the Arts witnessed a blast from the past when Company Jump: Andrews Sisters Tribute performed as the third production in the Prince Rupert Concert Society’s 2011/2012-concert season.
Company Jump; Andrews Sister Tribute was produced and written by Nadine Tremblay, who is also sings and acts in the production along side Andrea Isaak and Marie West. The trio has been performing together for five years now, doing this particular show for close to three, currently traveling around the Province putting on performances.
At Sunday’s performance, the trio played a number of popular Andrews Sisters’ songs, including “Don’t Sit Under the Apple Tree”, “Six Jerks in a Jeep” and “(I’m Getting) Corns for my Country”, while being accompanied by a full swing band.
The comical musical theater production incorporated lots of spectator involvement, bringing up members of the audience on stage a couple times during the show, as well as synchronized dancing and witty in-between-song banters between the girls.
The Andrew Sisters were a family trio from Minnesota that was active from 1925 to 1967. MCA Records last official record-sell count of the Andrews Sister done in the mid-1970’s had the ladies at 75 million albums sold, making them one of the most popular girl groups of all time.
