This is the definitive musical portrait of the iconic singing group, inductees to the Vocal Group Hall of Fame and now the longest-performing sister act in American history, based on the quartet’s best-selling memoir of the same name.

This joyful and exuberant musical documentary of the singing sisters; who first rose to fame as child performers on television’s The Lawrence Welk Show before becoming one of the nation’s most popular and acclaimed vocal groups through their appearances on the top variety series of the day including The Andy Williams Show and The Ed Sullivan Show, best-selling recordings, and live concert performances, is a celebration of the group’s 55 years in show business.

Crafted from countless hours of rare archival footage and never-before-seen family home movies, plus newly-shot interview and concert footage featuring the Sisters and their friends and entertainment colleagues Andy Williams and Kathie Lee Gifford, THE LENNON SISTERS: SAME SONG, SEPARATE VOICES contains current and classic full-length musical performances of their greatest hits, highlighting their iconic and intricate familial harmonies.

For the very first time the original singing quartet - Dianne (Dee Dee), Peggy, Kathy and Janet - along with their younger sister Mimi (who now performs with Kathy & Janet as the Lennon Sisters trio) candidly share the inspirational journey of the intimate highs and lows of their lives in show business; from their early days on television to their own variety series - The Lennon Sisters Hour and the headline-grabbing murder of their father; from their controversial break with The Lawrence Welk Show to working with Andy Williams for 10 years on his weekly variety show and in concert at Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas; from their days of extensive record-breaking appearances in nightclubs, theatres and state fairs to their continuing career today, not just as performers but also as toymakers, with a line of toys & dolls called “Best Pals” designed by Kathy & Janet to take kids and their parents back to a simpler time.

Distributed by American Public Television, and produced by Polly O. Entertainment this all new Premium Service public television event is available nationwide beginning November 26, 2011 (check your local public television listings.)

About The Lennon Sisters
As one of the most acclaimed and admired vocal groups in popular music, The Lennon Sisters (LennonSisters.com) are entertainment icons and throughout a dazzling career have conquered all facets of show business. First finding overnight success as television stars, they continued their rise to fame as recording artists, best-selling authors and live performers in theaters, nightclubs and major performing arts centers throughout the United States, where they continue to captivate audiences with their legendary harmonies.

America first fell in love with The Lennon Sisters as the "girls next door." For 13 years on The Lawrence Welk Show, the Sisters (Dianne, Peggy, Kathy and Janet), charmed the nation with their sweet-voiced harmonies. They were dubbed "America's Sweethearts of Song" and Americans still admire them today.
After their well-received television debut, the Sisters began a concert career, traveling extensively to make record-breaking personal appearances in every major U.S. city, and throughout the heartland.

As their popularity grew, merchandising tie-ins such as paper dolls, TV trays and coloring books, began to appear. As the quintessential American girls, they sang for seven United States Presidents, Eisenhower, Kennedy, Johnson, Nixon, Ford, Carter and Reagan, an achievement that few other performers can claim.

The vocal group also embarked on a successful recording career upon the release of their first album, Let’s Get Acquainted. Their early singles were Billboard chart hits, and subsequent albums including The Lennon Sisters Sing Twelve Great Hits, On the Groovy Side and The Lennon Sisters Today spawned turntable favorites. Their two holiday albums, Christmas with the Lennon Sisters and Noel remain perennial bestsellers on CD.

On television, they made hundreds of guest appearances on virtually every variety and talk show including The Mickey Mouse Club, The Ed Sullivan Show, The Hollywood Palace, Perry Como’s Kraft Music Hall, The Jackie Gleason Show, The Tonight Show and The Cher Show.

Their first solo television special for ABC, The Lennon Sisters Show, earned the Sisters their own musical variety series, Jimmy Durante Presents the Lennon Sisters Hour. Their variety series, which paired them with show business legend Jimmy Durante, proved a sparkling showcase for the Sisters’ vocal, dancing and comedic talents. The show attracted such top name guest stars as Sammy Davis, Jr., Bob Hope, Perry Como, George Burns, Desi Arnaz, Jack Benny, Milton Berle, Dinah Shore, Andy Williams, Merle Haggard, Wayne Newton, and the Osmonds.

The Lennon Sisters next joined The Andy Williams Show as regular special guests, and for over a decade they also appeared live in concert with Andy. Their critically acclaimed performances at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, propelled them to the top ranks of U.S. live performers.
“America's Singing Sweethearts” were documented in their memoir, Same Song, Separate Voices. The book gave the public new insight into the unique, personal struggles each has faced and the challenges of four distinct individuals.

The Lennons have been the inspiration for questions on such top game shows as Jeopardy and Family Feud, and also in Trivial Pursuit. Recently Saturday Night Live has featured a recurring skit spoofing The Lawrence Welk Show and the Lennon Sisters starring comedy favorite Kristen Wiig.

In 1994, they launched a new facet of their career, becoming the featured performers at the Champagne Theater in Branson, MO for 17 years, drawing hundreds of thousands of visitors to the area and helping to establish it as an entertainment mecca.

After Peggy’s retirement in 1999, younger sister Mimi Lennon joined Dianne “Dee Dee”, Kathy and Janet in the foursome. Following Dianne’s retirement, Mimi continued singing with Kathy and Janet. The group became a trio and the Lennon sound continued without change.

Still a frequent presence on television, the Sisters recently appeared on the Today show. And in November 2011 they begin a two month run headlining their own special Christmas show at the Andy Williams Moon River Theater in Branson, Missouri. This marks their 18th consecutive season in Branson.

For their work on television they were awarded a star on the world famous Hollywood Walk of Fame, immortalizing their popularity. In 2001, marking another achievement in a stellar career, The Lennon Sisters were formally inducted into the National Vocal Group Hall of Fame. Their instant stardom has lasted more than 55 years; The Lennon Sisters are American Legends.
