About Gracie & Lacy
Gracie and Lacy developed their love for music at a young age. When they were 8 and 10 years old, they went to see a show on the Goldenrod Showboat in St. Charles, MO. Mesmerized and inspired, the girls posted audition notices and hung a bed sheet curtain across their garage door creating their own driveway theatre. With a cast of 15 people under 12, they directed and produced their first musical.
Summer productions became and annual tradition, earning the name Broadway On The Driveway. The driveway shows grew exponentially until traffic jams and a friendly visit from the local police “helped” Broadway On The Driveway decide it was time to find a larger performance venue. Broadway on the Driveway grew and packed the house at local performing arts centers as casts of up to 90 young performers, a full orchestra, and technical crew presented family-friendly Broadway musicals to the community.
In response to growing entertainment requests, Gracie and Lacy began touring as a sister act in 1997. Gracie & Lacy shows combine the sisters' love for tight harmony, retro fashion, tap dance, and the classic music of the Great American Songbook. The show stands alone as a unique creation as many of the vintage inspired costumes are designed by Lacy, complimented by Gracie’s original choreography.
In 2014, Gracie and Lacy hit the scene in Charleston, SC. Returning to their Charleston family roots, the duo is delighted to walk the same streets as their ancestors. Rumors fly that the sisters are related to "The Real Rhett Butler," as tales of Secretary of the Confederacy and blockade runner, Gerorge Alfred Trenholm, bear an uncanny resemblance to the Gone With The Wind Character. History buffs may also be intrigued by the duo's familial ties to Solomon Legare, The Huguenot, and Kinsey Burden of Sea Island Cotton. And, if you're really good, Gracie and Lacy may divulge wherabouts of Stonewall Jackson's arm!
