The Upscale Singers present ‘Back to Broadway’


CAREFREE – The Upscale Singers will be performing their 12th annual spring musical dinner show, opening Friday, April 8, at the Desert Mountain Club. In ‘Back to Broadway,’ the troupe performs medleys from favorite musicals.

This year’s selections include South Pacific, Fiddler on the Roof (with a professional violinist), Beautiful: The Carole King Musical (with a guitarist reminiscent of James Taylor), the Upscale Kids present Peter Pan, and the Singers finish with a tribute to Jule Styne, composer of Gypsy and Funny Girl.      

The Upscale Singers are Margaret Watson’s company of 30 singers in the North Valley, with members ranging from their 20s to 80s. They’ve been performing since 2005, getting better every year and attracting a large following around the Valley.

This season’s opening night is on Friday, April 8, at the Desert Mountain Club (open to the public). The evening starts at 5:30 p.m. with a social hour on the Sunset Terrace, continues with a buffet dinner at 6:30 p.m. in the Cochise/Geronimo dining room, and concludes with the Upscale show.

On Friday, April 15, and Sunday, April 17, the troupe repeats its show at the Opera House at the Carefree Resort.  A social hour starts at 5:30 p.m., with a buffet dinner at 6:30p.m., followed by the show ‘Back to Broadway.’

Desert Mountain’s tickets are $65. The Opera House tickets are $50. Tickets may be charged to credit cards. For reservations, call (480) 575-0188.

Besides singing, the Upscale Singers have three programs that benefit the youth in the North Valley; proceeds from their raffle and silent auctions support these programs. In twelve years they’ve contributed over $60,000 to their Upscale Scholars, Upscale Campers, and Upscale Grants for music teachers.
