Featuring stars of Broadway’s smash hits Jersey Boys and Motown: The Musical, The Doo Wop Project recreates — and even re-imagines — some of the greatest music in American pop and rock history.

Filmed in front of a live audience, this concert special traces the evolution of Doo Wop from the smooth sound of five guys singing tight harmonies to the biggest hits on the radio today. Members of The Doo Wop Project are Charl Brown, Russel Fischer, John Michael Dias, Dwayne Cooper, Dominic Nolfi, and Musical Director Santino Paladino.

They’ll take you on a journey with foundational tunes from groups like the Crests, The Belmonts, and Flamingos through their influences on the sounds of Smokey Robinson, The Temptations, and The Four Seasons, all the way to Doo Wop-versions of songs from modern musicians like Jason Mraz and Garth Brooks.

During the television special, viewers will have the chance to donate to WITF and receive tickets to see The Doo Wop Project live in Shippensburg. Donations for tickets can also be made online.

Watch The Doo Wop Project on WITF TV or through the PBS Video app Monday, August 15, or Sunday, August 21 at 8pm. It previously aired on WITF TV Thursday, August 11.
