They sing! They harmonize! They take vacations together! If you love showtunes, you’ll love hearing them sung by a real-life theatre family: Jeremy, Denene, Jason and Carly Koch! In the wonderfully intimate, up-close setting of Farmers Alley Theatre, you'll hear The Koch Family sing dynamite songs from movies like "The Greatest Showman" and from Broadway musicals like Wicked and Beautiful: The Carole King Musical just to name a few! This event was a big hit in 2019 and 2020 and is certain to be a smash this year too! The Koch Family will be accompanied by spectacular musicians like Chris Gray on piano and Cameron Taylor on guitar and drums, so you're certain to tap your toes, hum along and ring in the New Year with a smile on your face! Don't miss it!
