One of the most popular shows to ever tour the International Fringe Festival circuit is coming to the Sunset Theatre in Wells for two nights only on Sept. 19 and 20.
6 Guitars, written by Chase Padgett and Jay Hopkins, is a pitch-perfect blend of music, comedy and characters. Padgett, as the solo performer, portrays six unique guitar players, each representing their own style of music.
As the show unfolds, audiences are treated to great songs from each genre that showcase breathtaking musicianship. This sonic feat is done not merely with just one performer, but with just one guitar as well. There are plenty of laughs too! Each character — from the young rock prodigy to the weary blues picker — shares hilarious anecdotes that only a life playing music can give. These balance out the moving stories each deliver about how music has touched their lives and made them a better person along the way. You don’t need to play music to love this show. You just need to love music.
Chase Padgett has been a musician, actor, writer, and improviser for nearly 15 years.
This performance is well worth the drive to Wells. Showtimes are Thursday, Sept. 19 and Friday, Sept. 20 at 8 p.m., and tickets are just $15.
