A visual extravaganza: Un-Fashion Show & Variety Show

posted Sep 18, 2015, 4:42 PM by Joyce Evans
It’s a once-in-a-lifetime experience. All PSAR members are invited to attend a fun-filled evening of fashion, food and unforgettable entertainment at the PSAR Un-Fashion and Variety Show, Thursday, Sept. 24 at the Scottish Rite Event Center, 1895 Camino del Rio South in Mission Valley. Proceeds will benefit the Military Warriors Support Foundation.
 
You won’t want to miss this amazing evening of music, laugher and fabulous costumes. It's a gorgeous, gasp-inducing spectacle. The show is a jaw-dropping, creative extravaganza featuring entertaining song and dance routines and hilarious comedy skits performed by PSAR members. As a visual tapestry, there is simply nothing else like it.
 
You will be impressed with the over-the-top efforts by your fellow PSAR members. For the past three months, the cast of 45 PSAR members have been rehearsing three-or-four evenings per week for two-to-three hours each rehearsal. You won’t have a choice but to love everything about this energetic and happy show. 
 
“A Hair Raising Musical Experience” is this year’s theme. The 10 individual numbers will spoof of some Hollywood’s most adored timeless classics and popular motion picture comedies, including “Grease,” “Pirates of the Caribbean,” “Hair,” “The Wizard of Oz,” “Nine To Five” and “Remember the Titans.” You won’t believe your eyes as you watch PSAR members dance on chairs for the “Cabaret” routine. Plus, the moves in the “Beetlejuice” skit will leave you holding your sides in laughter. There’s even a skit based on the “Magic Mike” movie series about construction workers who also work as male strippers. The staging of all the numbers is a marvel, a theatrical achievement highlighting beauty, brains and ingenuity. It’s amazingly creative.
 
Between the musical numbers will be shorter “commercials,” which are sponsored by PSAR supporters. However, these so-called “commercials” will not be your typical sales pitches. Instead, they will be just as creative and entertaining as the bigger stage numbers, and wonderfully comical. Commercial sponsors include the Women Council of REALTORS® San Diego County Chapter, First American Home Buyers Protection Corp., Legacy Escrow of La Mesa, Quality Escrow of San Diego and PSAR’s own Local District Councils (you won’t ever forget their “zombie run,” this will be a must-see).
 
A special, four-member live band also will be performing. “The Summer of Love” is led by Dr. Clinton Friday with Friday Family Chiropractic in Alpine. The band performs music from the 1960s and 1970s and reminds its fans of those eras. About 25 tunes are planned. Other band members include Scott Hayes, Robert Petty and Mark Trombacco, along with Rick Benoit on sound and lights. Also performing will be singer Stellita Porter.
 
Now in its fourth year, the popularity of PSAR’s Un-Fashion and Variety Show has grown far and wide. “We’re talked about at statewide C.A.R. meetings,” said Carey Guthrie, 2015 PSAR president and director and producer of the show. “It’s so much fun and rewarding. I’m so grateful when our members say, `Sure, I’ll make a fool of myself for you, Carey, I’ll do it for you.’”
 
Carey said the countless rehearsals have consisted of watching YouTube videos of dance scenes and then mimicking the moves. “We are our own, self-taught chorographers. I’m so proud of our cast members who are so dedicated and committed.”
 
Attendance is again expected to reach more than 350 people. Special guests scheduled to attend include the presidents and board members with the North San Diego County Association of REALTORS® and the Orange County Association of REALTORS®.
 
The show is a fundraiser for the Military Warriors Support Foundation. This nonprofit received a $10,000 donation as a result of the 2014 show.
 
Reception will begin at 5:30 p.m. reception followed by dinner at 6:30 p.m. and the show at 7 p.m. Tickets cost $55 per person, or $500 for a table of 10 seats. To RSVP visit www.psar.org. Don’t miss it.
