A WORLD OF

ENTERTAINMENT

MUSIC, COMEDY, AND AND ORIGINAL THEATRICAL EXPERIENCE, COMES TO BOERNE

What started as an overnight YouTube sensation is now a world-renowned theatrical phenomenon! The VOCA PEOPLE have landed (and performed) in every major city throughout the world. Their credits include New York City’s 2012 Lortel award for best “Theatrical Experience,” a prize first claimed by the Blue Man Group. Recently finishing their 3-week engagement at the largest performing arts festival in the world, the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, the cast of VOCA PEOPLE stretches impromptu to an intergalactic level. The storyline begins as the VOCA PEOPLE land on the unfamiliar plant, Earth and sadly discover that their precious spaceship charger – musical energy – has been zapped. Slowly, the VOCA PEOPLE learn the strange habitants, habits and music of planet Earth, and with the help of the audience, musically energize their unique spaceship. Creator, Producer and Artistic Director Lior Kalfo is an awardwinning comedian who created this invigorating, fresh, high-octane hilarious show that is bursting with electrifying energy. Under his reigns, the cast excels in creating dynamically different characters that are mesmerizing and wholly entertaining. Musical Director and Arranger Shai Fishman has developed a cast that constantly and consistently blows the mind of the audience with their impressive vocal skills, landing on every pitch with pinpoint precision and creating simply gorgeous harmonies. Hana Yefet’s clever costumes clad the entire cast in white suits over white full body spandex suits with the face cut out. Paired with the white makeup and vibrant red lipstick, the characters of the VOCA PEOPLE are similar to humans, while being completely blank canvases. If you love music, comedy, and audience participation, this is the show for you! Quirky, playful, imaginative, and fun, this eightmember vocal ensemble (chicly dressed as intergalactic aliens) reproduces the sounds of an entire orchestra with an amazing variety of beat box vocals and a cappella singing. Their 90-minute non-stop show will journey through our own music history – from prehistoric to present day – including rock, pop, classical, blues, rap, and movie themes. Great fun for all ages! The VOCA PEOPLE are friendly aliens looking for friendly hill-country residents to energize their visit to Boerne, Texas - their second performance in Texas EVER. The VOCA PEOPLE have been watched live by over 1 million viewers worldwide, have had over 50 million YouTube hits, and there are only 1,000 seats available for their single stop in Boerne, Texas. At the time of writing, 600 of those seats are already sold! Jimmy Fallon describes their performance as “The coolest show ever!” while the New York Times simply states, “Great. A knockout!” The accolades continue with Broadwayworld.com, “Pure talent, humor and originality make VOCA PEOPLE an event not to be missed. It’s an entirely unique and overwhelming experience that leaves audiences raving long after the curtain closes.” Set aside Thursday, October 23, at 7:30pm, for an evening of entertainment at Champion Auditorium, as Boerne Performing Arts presents this incredible vocal group! As VOCA PEOPLE state, “Life is music, and music is life!” They couldn’t say it any better.
