The Earl Smith Strand Theatre is bringing Motown to Marietta this Fourth of July weekend, 2011, featuring hits by Michael Jackson, Diana Ross, The Temptations, The Four Tops, Stevie Wonder, and a host of Motown greats.

The Strand’s Salute to Motown musical revue will be a non-stop salute to some of the best music in the history of America. The show will tell the story of the origins of Motown, starting when Berry Gordy opened Motown Records in 1959 and posted a sign that proclaimed “Hitsville, U.S.A.” There wasn’t much of a reason to brag – yet. But soon his prediction came true. Emerging at the peak of the civil rights movement, Motown gave Americans everything they could want in music: anguish, romance, joy, and a reason to dance.

The 2011 Salute to Motown promises to be a show filled with fun and exciting memories of extraordinary Motown sounds.

Date:
Patrons can move, dance, laugh, and romance to the vibes of Motown, Friday and Saturday, July 1 & 2, 2011 at 8 p.m. and Sunday and Monday, July 3 & 4, 2011 at 3 p.m.
