MT PLEASANT, SC - The popular Charleston sister act, Gracie & Lacy are crossing the Cooper River to unveil their original, Broadway-style score, The Four Freedoms - A Tribute To Norman Rockwell in Piccolo Spoleto Festival. The concert will be presented free-of-charge on June 9th at 4pm at East Cooper Baptist Church in honor of the 75th Anniversary of Norman Rockwell’s Four Freedoms paintings: Freedom of Speech, Freedom from Want, Freedom of Worship, and Freedom from Fear. Locals may recall that Rockwell spent time serving at the Charleston Naval base during World War 1 after gorging his lanky frame with doughnuts and bananas to meet the military’s weight requirements.
Exquisitely orchestrated by Jonathan Gathman of St. Louis, the concert will feature the East Cooper Baptist Orchestra and Choir and various artists from throughout the Lowcountry. The show will also feature the beautiful, “I’ll Always belong To You” by St. Louis’ Michael Ramshaw performed by Lacy Miller (of Gracie & Lacy) with original choreography by Grace Rauton (Dance Conservatory of Charleston). The evening will be hosted by WTMA’s Charlie James and will star Benjamin Seabrook as Norman Rockwell, and Jay White and Norman’s friend and fellow illustrator, Mead Schaefer.
The question is asked, what do Gracie & Lacy plan to do with their musical creation? Could the sisters who are known for their childhood phenomenon “Broadway On The Driveway” have dreams of seeing their own show on the Great White Way?
“Absolutely! Mounting a Broadway show more than on on our bucket list!” Says Lacy.
“We have countless songs and scripts piling up in boxes under our beds, they’ve got to go somewhere!” Gracie laughs.
While the names haven’t been released, the sisters have been quietly pitching the show to industry professionals, while also entering contests for new works. In the local arts scene, Gracie and Lacy are two artists to watch. You can keep up with their work and travels by following www.GracieAndLacy.com.
