The Ten Tenors will travel to Broken Arrow for their performance on Jan. 24.
It’s the happiest time of the year, and Broken Arrow Performing Arts Center is spreading holiday cheer by offering savings on ticket prices for the last three shows of its fifth anniversary season. The ‘Broadway Triple Play’ includes an evening with Australian musical troupe The Ten Tenors on Jan. 24, 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. The three-show ticket pack ranges from $48 to $144 and is available at the BAPAC Box Office located at 701 S. Main St. in downtown Broken Arrow or by phone at (918) 259-5778.
“Our mission is to bring the world to Broken Arrow, and I think we are doing just that with these three elite Broadway shows,” BAPAC Executive Director Mark Frie said. “It’s been an outstanding fifth anniversary, and we couldn’t have asked for a better way to close out the season.”
On Jan. 24 at 7:30 p.m., The Ten Tenors from all the way Down Under take the BAPAC stage, bringing a mixture of rock and classical music to create 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 become known as one of the hardest working touring acts, performing 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 love 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.
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, Tenn. 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.
The ‘Broadway Triple Play’ is available at the BAPAC Box Office located at 701 S. Main in downtown Broken Arrow or by phone at (918) 259-5778, Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
