Stepping back in time

Show will transform Grog into a 1940s nightclub

(Continued)

With no script to go on, the 21-plus show tries to keep things loose as any good nightclub in the late 1940s would.

“We’re ad-libbing as we go, but I try to keep everything in the ’40s,” Prue said. “So, if I’m speaking about something after the war or something in the newspaper of that day, I’m trying to keep it within that moment and that time period.”

The time warp begins at 9:15 p.m. and runs until 10:30. Bringing things back into the 21st century will be Paul Prue and the Rowdy Bar Blues Boys, who will take the stage directly after.

“People come dressed up to this,” Prue said. “My last three shows were all sold out, over 120 people that came every time. ... It’s like an old-fashioned date night where the guys are in suit coats and ties and a lot of the women are dressing like it’s the ’40s. Doing their hair like that. Really dressing up just to look good. It’s a fun night out.”
