The show is described as “A daring trick by a mysterious illusionist at the summer carnival inspires a rich girl to convince an orphan boy to break all of the town’s rules. Plans are hatched, promises are broken, and innocent mistakes produce tragic consequences. The Poor Boys’ Chorus proudly presents a tale so tragically romantic it’ll take your breath away. Literally. ”
Additional performances will take place Friday, August 18 at 7:30PM and Sunday, August 20 at 3PM. For more information and tickets, visit PoorBoysChorus.com.
