(CHATHAM, N.Y.) – “Summer Shtick,” an evening of comedy and music featuring actors Nancy Rothman and Robert Zukerman and soprano Amanda Boyd-Grout, takes place at PS21: Performance Spaces for the 21st Century, on Friday, July 10, 2015, at 8pm. This show is the second in a series of three Variety Friday events at PS21 this summer.

“Summer Shtick” will include short scenes, stand-up comedy and song parodies. Rothman and Zukerman have worked together for years, appearing at Barrington Stage Company and Stageworks/Hudson, as well as creating shows for the Spencertown Academy, where they were original members of the PantoLoons. Both have extensive stage, film and television credits.

Soprano Amanda Boyd-Grout will be the special musical guest for “Summer Shtick.” Boyd-Grout has lately been giving recitals and soloing with the Broad Street Chorale in Kinderhook. Boyd-Grout has been critically acclaimed for her resplendent operatic soprano voice, which she promises to muffle for this evening of comedy.

Tickets for the July 10 performance of “Summer Shtick” are $20 general admission, $15 for PS21 members, and $10 for students with I.D. Tickets can be purchased at PS21: Performance Spaces for the 21st Century, by calling 1-800-838-3006, or at the door until the show sells out.
