Syncopated Ladies back for Dallas holiday show

A troupe of Denton dancers is back by popular demand to perform at a concert for popular Dallas band Polyphonic Spree.

The Syncopated Ladies, a tap-dancing ensemble affiliated with the Denton Senior Center, will be part of the Polyphonic Spree’s holiday concert at 7 p.m. Saturday at Lakewood Theatre, 1825 Abrams Road in Dallas.

Santa, Mrs. Claus, Frosty, Rudolph and other holiday friends will be in attendance at the 11th annual Polyphonic Spree Holiday Extravaganza.

The evening also promises live reindeer, a presentation of Dallas Zoo animals and magician Confetti Eddie.

The Polyphonic Spree will perform a full holiday set culled from last year’s Holidaydream: Sounds of the Holidays Vol. One, and children will have a chance to join the band on stage. The Syncopated Ladies will dance, and the O’s will be performing a special holiday set of songs from a forthcoming Christmas EP.

The evening will culminate with the Polyphonic Spree performing a rock set featuring songs from the group’s latest album, Yes, It’s True, as well as old favorites and a few covers. Attendees will get milk and cookies as they leave the building.

Tickets cost $35. For tickets and more information, visit
