2010-2011 Season

Beyond Broadway: A Celebration of Love in Song with Lauren Kennedy and Alan Campbell

September 25, 2010

 A sizzling evening of music performed with panache by a pair of critically acclaimed Broadway, film and television stars. Showstoppers from Broadway, standards from the great American songbook, swing numbers, country classics and rock ‘n’ roll!


Pianafiddle

November 12, 2010

Is it bluegrass? Is it jazz? Is it classical, old time, ragtime, or blues? If Pianafiddle is performing, the answer is YES! Beginning only with a familiar tune, violinist/fiddler Adam DeGraff and pianist Randy Morris improvise as they go, blending the traditional, the unwritten and the spontaneous, ranging from Bach to bluegrass.


Galumpha

March 5, 2011

Combining stunning acrobatics, striking visual effects, physical comedy and inventive choreography, Galumpha brings to life a world of imagination, beauty, muscle and merriment. A sensory feast of images ranging from the ridiculous to the sublime, drawn together into a seamless whole, consistently brings audiences to their feet.


Carrie Newcomer

April 9, 2011

Describing Carrie Newcomer as a singer-songwriter is a little like saying Noah was a boat-builder. One of the definitive voices of the Heartland, the Indiana native sings of the small joys and pains in life, emphasizing the little moments that are often taken for granted as she illuminates life with startling depth, humor and clarity.


Blood Done Sign My Name

May 7, 2011

Moving theatrical adaptation of the book about the murder of a young black man in Oxford, NC, in 1970.  Performed by acclaimed playwright and actor Wiley accompanied by powerful gospel singer Mary D. Williams.
