Following their sold-out performances in May and June, physical comediennes “The Ladies” are bringing their pop-up drive-in show, “Ladies in the Headlights!” to Chandler in the East Valley. Performances will be held August 7, 8, 14 & 15 with showtimes at 7:45 pm and 8:15 pm on Fridays and 7:45, 8:15 and 8:45 pm on Saturdays.
As a co-production with the Chandler Center for the Arts, “Ladies in the Headlights” is a 15 minute drive-up pop-up performance designed for parking lots. Audience members reserve a parking spot, drive in, and watch The Ladies perform by the light of their high-beams and to the soundtrack broadcast through their car radios.
For the Chandler edition, The Ladies will be performing in some of Chandler’s iconic locales with locations and directions disclosed to ticket holders 24 hours prior to the performance. Participants should tune their car radios to 88.1 to hear the performance. Curbside food orders will be available to complete the live experience.
Tickets are $19.99 per car and are on sale beginning July 24 at wearetheladies.net.
Set in a parking lot and performed to a soundtrack as varied as Kenny G and Ultra Lounge, The Ladies break free from the pressures of motherhood and housework by expressing themselves with their best moves. The result is an utterly wacky and uproarious show as audiences delight in their zany physical comedy, laugh at their charming awkwardness and see what happens when we can be released from taking life too seriously.

“We are so excited to bring this fun show to locations around Chandler. ‘The Ladies’ have found a way for people to experience a live show while promoting local businesses at the same time,” says Michelle Mac Lennan, General Manager, Chandler Center for the Arts.
Ladies in the Headlights! is a production of Yes And Productions and is presented in partnership with Chandler Center for the Arts.
