Barking Legs will offer a special menu of food and cocktails to pair with the musical arrangements of Hip Hop, dance, Jazz, spoken word, and drag in a creative cabaret.
“Twenty-five years ago, we envisioned creating a nonprofit arts organization that would foster a strong and diverse community, engage in educational outreach and promote a progressive arts movement,” said Ann Law, CoPAC/Barking Legs Theater founder and executive director. “We are thrilled that Barking Legs Theater’s 25th Anniversary event will feature some of the artists that we’ve been lucky to collaborate with over the years and those we are trying to cultivate a partnership with."
Performances to be featured include: Floami Fly, Tanqueray Harper, Chattanooga Fire Cabaret, Juicy St. Claire, Marcus Ellsworth, Cherokee Ellison, Monica Alicia Ellison, Beth Markham Herring, Terrance Wright, Kyle Dagnan, Ann Law, and the Nancy Westmoreland Group.
