Get ready for an evening of fun and laughs when former Seinfield writer Pat Hazell takes the stage to present The Wonder Bread Years. The show will offer its fast paced and hilarious salute to Americana on Friday, May 12, 2017 at 7:00 p.m. at the Preston Arts Center.
Hazell captures the common American childhood setting — the home and the yard, the television set, holidays and travels, and many other aspects of growing up in the U.S. Don’t be afraid to say “remember when” and smile as you are reminded of a much simpler time. Baby boomers everywhere will enjoy this hysterical production which walks the line between standup and theater.
“Slice of life humor requires the same delicate recipe to achieve the proper harmony between comedy and nostalgia. We, as a community, share more in common than we have differences. Tonight we salute our common denominators. It is my hope that I am not sharing my life story but our life story as we spend this evening together,” says Hazell of the show.
“As we present the last show of our 2016-2017 season, we are thrilled to have Pat Hazell on-stage. If you enjoyed Seinfeld or are just needing a good laugh then bring your friends and family out to this show! I am very grateful for the community’s continued support, especially as we look toward a star studded season kicking off in September. Thank you for supporting the heART of Henderson!” Alex Caudill, Executive Director of the Henderson Area Arts Alliance said.
Travel back to the good ol’ days alongside Hazell and become immersed in the nostalgia that is The Wonder Bread Years.
The event is sponsored by season presenting sponsor Field & Main Bank, The Gleaner and Rotary International.
Tickets are $29 and $24 for adults, $12 for college students with ID and $10 for ages 18 and younger. Tickets are available online at haaa.org or by calling the box office at 270-831-9800.
