Chris Sams and Leslie Jackson take the stage in “Ragtime,” coming to the Broken Arrow PAC on December 8.
It’s lucky number seven for the Broken Arrow Performing Arts Center and Kristin Chenoweth Theatre, as the seventh season of the Spotlight Series is celebrated for 2015-2016 with “Legends Alive,” continuing with two amazing shows for December: the Tony-winning Broadway smash “Ragtime: The Musical” on December 8, and the return of The TEN Tenors with their show “Home For The Holidays” on December 15.
At the dawn of a new century, everything is changing…and anything is possible, in what “Variety” magazine calls “simply stunning in every detail – storytelling at its most vibrant.” “Ragtime” comes to the Broken Arrow PAC stage Tuesday, December 8, at 7:30 p.m. “Ragtime” returns to the road in all-new touring production directed and choreographed by Marcia Milgrom Dodge and produced by the team that most recently brought you “The Addams Family,” “Spamalot,“ “Rock of Ages” and “The Color Purple.”
The stories of an upper-class wife, a determined Jewish immigrant and a daring young Harlem musician unfold – set in turn-of-the-century New York – all three united by their desire and belief in a brighter tomorrow. Their compelling stories are set to theatre’s richest and most glorious Tony Award®-winning score by Stephen Flaherty and Lynn Ahrens, and it is hailed by the “Hollywood Reporter” as “one of the best musicals of recent decades.” Winning Tony Awards for Best Book and Best Musical Score, this 13-time Tony Award nominated musical is a timeless celebration of life – what it could and should be! “Bloomberg News” calls it “explosive and thrilling – nothing short of a masterpiece.”
It’s the most wonderful time of the year, and what better way to celebrate the holiday season than with international singing sensation The TEN Tenors, who return to the Kristin Chenoweth Theatre on Tuesday, December 15, at 7:30 p.m. “Home for the Holidays” is a magical experience for the whole family that will dazzle, delight and captivate audiences. Join Australia’s rock stars of the opera as they amaze and enthrall with their unique selection of traditional and contemporary seasonal favorites.
With soaring versions of “Joy to the World,” “Sleigh Ride,” “White Christmas,” “Amazing Grace,” “Winter Wonderland,” “Feliz Navidad” and many more, “Home for the Holidays” is the perfect way to celebrate the spirit of the season. The Ten Tenors are undoubtedly one of Australia’s most successful touring entertainment groups of all time, with more than 90 million people worldwide witnessing their unmistakable charm, camaraderie and vocal power.
Following 16 years of sell-out performances across the globe, including more than 2,000 of their own headline concerts, The TEN Tenors have cemented their place as one of the world’s most loved classically based contemporary music groups. Celebrated for their wonderfully vast repertoire, breathtaking arrangements and powerful live performances, The TEN Tenors respectfully tip their hats not only to the great classical tenors and composers, but also contemporary music’s most popular artists.
