With the warmer weather arriving on campus, you would think people have let go of the fleeting fad that was “Frozen” right? Oh so wrong. For today’s Flyerer of Week, UTB caught up with Counterparts who is putting on “Do You Want to Build a Show, Man?” this weekend, a Frozen-themed a capella extravaganza. Yayyyyyyyy…..
Tell us about your group and your show.
We are Counterparts, Penn’s premiere pop and jazz, coed a capella group, and our spring show is this weekend! We will be singing such a wide variety of songs, from Ella Fitzgerald to The Beatles to David Guetta, so you know it’s going to be great.
So no Frozen songs?
Well, we do sing some in the promo video we made! (You can check it out here, it’s actually pretty darn adorable). But also, our show title is a bit misleading because earlier a family stopped by our table and were really interested in buying tickets because the kids saw the Frozen poster; we did not discourage them.
Shhhh we won’t tell. So what are some techniques you guys use to stand out on the walk?
I’ve shouted, “Hey do you like sports? Then you’re gonna love a capella!” at someone before. Also, we don’t have flyers this year and instead we are using snowflakes…
Is there a huge flyer shortage or something going on that we don’t know about?
Nah man, we are just trying to save the world, one quarter sheet at a time.
How environmentally friendly of you guys! So any last show details you want to share?
Well we are doing this cool deal with Off the Beat, where if you buy tickets to both shows, you get to go to both concerts for only $12! Other than that, our show is Friday at 8:30 pm and Saturday at 6 pm in Iron Gate Theater. Regular tickets are $8 on the walk, $10 at the door, and $7 for a group of 8 or more.
