For a hilarious look at the beauty business and a fun evening of a capella harmony, come to Linthicum Park at 6 p.m. Sunday.
The "Beauty Shop Quartet," a female barbershop quartet, will present two, 40-minute shows as part of the Concert in the Park summer series.
The first half of the performance will consist of parody songs, gags and outlandish costumes as the quartet addresses topics such as hair, tanning booths, salon customers, taxes, dieting and other topics.
The second part of the show will include a large noncomedy repertoire of show tunes, music from the 1940s, jazz and blues.
The "Beauty Shop Quartet" was formed in 1992. The name was adopted as a tweak to the men's barbershop quartets, but more important, it was a vehicle for their comedy package, about life in the beauty shop.
Much of the material comes from the bass singer, Adrienne Terenzoni, who for many years was a professional cosmetologist.
Other members of the quartet are: Barb Whitford, baritone; Jen Hunt, lead; and Theresa Fries, tenor.
This concert series is being sponsored by the Woman's Club of Linthicum Heights. The summer concerts are supported by the Crestwood Improvement Association, Cultural Arts Foundation of Anne Arundel County, Linthicum Lions Club and Linthicum-Shipley Improvement Association.
There is plenty of shade in the park to spread out your blanket or set up chairs to enjoy the program. You can also bring along a picnic supper.
Linthicum Park is on Benton Avenue next to the water tower.
In the event of rain, the concert will be canceled.
For more information, please call 789-7546 or 859-3308.
