The Edwards Twins
The Edwards Twins, identical twin celebrity impressionists who are selling out concert halls around the world, will return to their childhood home of Tucson for a special charity performance at 6:30 p.m., April 10, at the Fox Theatre. The evening’s proceeds will benefit the Tucson Musician’s Museum, Shared Hope, and Comedy for Charity.
Alumni of Rincon High School, Anthony and Eddie Edwards have toured the globe for two decades with their high-energy performances bringing song, dance and comedy to the stage through realistic portrayals of Elton John, Cher, Barbra Streisand, Bette Midler and other stars from the more than 100 in their repertoire. Extravagant designer costumes and elaborate makeup add just the right elements to bring the glitz and glamour of the Las Vegas Strip to downtown Tucson for this one-night engagement.
“We are excited to be coming home with a show that will entertain the entire family,” says Anthony, the Vegas-style act’s producer and Eddie’s elder brother (by four minutes). “We truly hold Tucson close to our hearts.”
The evening will be emceed by Arizona Daily Star editorial cartoonist David Fitzsimmons, also a Rincon High School alumnus, and Pima County Attorney Barbara LaWall, a Rincon alumnus as well, will commemorate National Crime Victims’ Rights Week with a special presentation.
The program will also include performances by the Rincon High School/University High School Choir, Egokillaz, winners of the National Hip Hop Championship, and the senior tap revue Rodeo City Wreckettes.
Cost: Range from $20 to a $50 VIP package. To purchase tickets, visit the Fox Theatre Box Office, at 17 W. Congress St., in Tucson, call 520-547-3040 or visit FoxTucson.com. For more information, visit ComedyForCharity.org.
