Kinsey Sicks Bring Dragapella to OWU


December 21, 2005

[ America's favorite Dragapella Beautyshop Quartet ] DELAWARE, OHIO -- Kinsey Sicks, America's favorite Dragapella Beautyshop Quartet, will bring their blend of music and comedy to Ohio Wesleyan University's Gray Chapel (61 S. Sandusky St., Delaware) on Jan. 22 at 7 p.m.

Tickets will be $10 and go on sale to the public on Jan. 9 and can be purchased by calling Ohio Wesleyan's student activities office at 740-368-3188. Kinsey Sicks was formed in 1993 when friends attended a Bette Midler concert dressed as the Andrews Sister and they've been serving up their combination of award winning a cappella singing, sharp satire and over-the-top drag since. Kinsey Sicks has produced and performed full-length theatrical productions around the country in such prestigious venues as Herbst Theatre in San Francisco, Nordstrom Recital Hall in Seattle, Ogden Theatre in Denver, Colony Theatre in South Beach, and Wheeler Opera Hall in Aspen. They have packed the houses with shows such as "The Balled Sopranos," "Motel Sicks: A Dragapella Summer Vacation," "Everything But the Kitsch 'n'Synch" and "GreatesTits," all of which premiered at San Francisco's New Conservatory Theatre Center. Billboard Magazine wrote, "One of the more uniquely original (and thoroughly fun and entertaining) acts we have encountered in years ... rich four-part harmony ... hilarious ... this is one act that should not be missed, either in person or on CD."

In 2001, Kinsey Sicks produced and starred in the critically acclaimed Off-Broadway hit DRAGAPELLA! Starring the Kinsey Sicks at New York's Studio 54. The production received a nomination for a Lucille Lortel award as Best Musical of 2001 and a Drama Desk Award nomination for Best Lyrics.
