Fans of theatrics, mark your calendars. June 17 brings The Tongue in Cheek Singers to Arts at the Armory for a “boundary-breaking evening of song.”

The show is part of the three-times-yearly tradition the group has been observing since 2011. Seven of the group’s ten members will put on their cabaret-style show beginning at 7:30 pm.

This spring into summer time event is themed “Bustin Out All Over.” “Songs range from Broadway musical numbers, to pop country, to folk, to rock, and everything in between,” said group member Jennifer Lawrence. Past themes have included “Unlucky in Love” and “Trouble With a Capital T.” and each show tends to last roughly ninety minutes.

The group is comprised of women with long histories in the music and performance arena, specifically in the Boston area. Each woman brings something unique to the table, and together they bring magic. “We actually met when I worked at Arts at the Armory and we put together a show for Joes Jazz and Blues Fest,” Lawrence revealed. “Some of the singers did one Jazz Fest in 2010, as well. In 2011 we realized we really liked performing together, and decided to try it regularly.”

They have styled themselves as “always in good fun, and almost never in good taste.” These women have seen success separately, and this group has been received in the same fashion, as the show required a move from the small café space they were in to the larger armory in 2014 to accommodate the audience.

When asked about their commitment to this group despite other successes, Lawrence said “We all really enjoy one another and, of course, love to perform! It keeps us coming back.”

So stop by next Friday and take it all in. The show is free, there will be food and drink available for purchase, Tom LaMark at the piano, and much fun to be had.
