Remember that movie Stand By Me where a group of young lads go on a boyhood journey and in the process lose their innocence? Well, From Fifth Grade To Fabulous is nothing like that – except for the whole loss of innocence part.
Comedian/actor Paul J. Williams and vocal impressionist/illusionist Mark Alan Smith originally met in fifth grade in San Antonio, Texas. We weren’t there, but we imagine that a pinky swear pledging eternal devotion to the Cher fan club was a big part of the budding friendship.
Through the years, they’ve remained pals and honed their gifts of comedy, singing and vocal impressions. But never once have they shared the stage – until now.
From Fifth Grade To Fabulous runs for three performances at the KD Studio Theater: Friday, October 26 at 8 p.m.; Saturday, October 27 at 8 p.m.; and Sunday, October 28 at 3 p.m. General Admission tickets are $20 and can be reserved at (214) 219-2718 or www.uptownplayers.org.
Last one there is a rotten egg.
