"Joanie Madden is a clever opportunist.
Eight years ago, a promoter called her and asked if her group, Cherish the Ladies, could embark on a Christmas tour.
Its leader answered in the affirmative.
'Then I asked the group, 'How do you play a Christmas show,' ' Madden says while chuckling. 'We didn't know what to do.'
But they still made the most of their opportunity.
Just two months ago, Cherish the Ladies delivered a rousing Christmas show in Central Jersey.
Now, Christmas is over for the quick-studies, but their tour, which stops tonight at the Sellersville Theater, has just begun."
