Pratt Community Concert Association brings top quality performers to Pratt each year, and the 2019-2020 season schedule kicks of this month with the Easts.
The Pratt Community Concert Association has been providing the south central Kansas area with quality entertainment for 81 years. This year’s schedule continues the tradition of bringing a variety of diverse and talented performers to our area.
The Easts start the season off on September 24 at 7 p.m. The Easts are a musical storytelling duo made up of husband and wife team Brooke and Jonathon East. Together they have 65 combined years of performing professionally on stages all over the world! Three of those 65 years has been as The Easts, connecting with audiences on all sorts of stages ranging from cruise ships to back yards, beach shores to fancy resorts. They are top-notch multi-talented singers, dancers, actors, musicians and storytellers. While they each have their own unique style and charm, there is no doubt they are better together. Their love of performing, love of each other and love of their audience is felt in each and every performance they give. The shows they write are more than meets the eye, combining theatrical elements, music and dialogue in a way that is polished yet still feels intimate and personal.
“I have had the privilege of knowing Brooke and Jonathon for more than 10 years and have seen them perform in a variety of settings. They are genuine performers who care about their audiences and use their gifts to brighten others’ lives,” said Misty Beck, Prat Community Concert Association president, “The Easts are the perfect talent to open up our 81st season.”
Together, The Easts play multiple instruments, sing multiple vocal styles and sincerely connect with their audience.
“This show is so important to us and we can’t wait to share ‘Our Story’ and connect with the people of Pratt!” Brooke said.
