The Ten Tenors perform at the Broken Arrow PAC on Jan. 24.
Continuing its fifth anniversary season, the Broken Arrow Performing Arts Center kicks off 2014 with internationally acclaimed singing sensation The Ten Tenors, who will be celebrating Broadway’s greatest hits on Jan. 24 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets range from $20 to $60 and are available at www.brokenarrowpac.com or (918) 259-5778.
“This incredible live experience from one of the hardest working touring acts is an absolute must-see,” BAPAC Executive Director Mark Frie said. “The Ten Tenors have a unique approach to combining a mixture of rock and classical music with some of Broadway’s greatest tunes, resulting in a sound that is uniquely theirs.”
This musical ensemble shot to international fame during a guest spot on Oprah Winfrey and hasn’t stopped since. Amidst incredible international success, this Australian troupe has performed an average of 250 shows per year across seven continents. Continually striving to challenge themselves and their audience, they have sold over 3.5 million concert tickets, have four gold CDs and two platinum, as well as two gold DVDs and one platinum.
“The Ten Tenors respectfully tip their hats to their classical roots and share with audiences unique renditions of the genre’s best pieces, but they also push the boundaries of what it means to be a tenor and to sit in the classical genre in today’s world,” according to The Ten Tenors website.
The Ten Tenors will lend their talent and individuality to a collection of Broadway’s most loved classics, including “The Impossible Dream” from “Man of La Mancha,” “Music of the Night” from “Phantom of the Opera” and “Bring Him Home” from “Les Misérables.”
Closing out Broken Arrow PAC’s fifth anniversary is the Oklahoma debut of the new Broadway smash “Bring It On: The Musical” on Feb. 18 and Tony-Award® winning Best Musical “Memphis” on April 22.
On Feb.18, the BAPAC theatre will be full of explosive dance and aerial stunts as “Bring It On: The Musical” presents a night sprinkled with sass. Inspired by the 2000 film “Bring It On,” this musical will take the audience on a high-flying journey through friendship, forgiveness and determination. It tells the story of the challenges and unexpected bonds formed through the thrill of extreme competition, which is sure to be everything the audience hoped for and nothing like they expected.
April 22 brings award-winning “Memphis” to Broken Arrow from the underground dance clubs of 1950s Memphis, Tennessee. A winner of four 2010 Tony Awards including Best Musical, “Memphis” bursts off the stage with explosive dancing, irresistible songs and a thrilling tale of fame and forbidden love. Inspired by actual events, “Memphis” is about a radio DJ who wants to change the world and a club singer who is ready for her big break. Come along on their incredible journey to the ends of the airwaves– filled with laughter, soaring emotion and roof-raising rock ‘n’ roll.
