This is rock ‘n’ roll like you’ve never heard (or seen) before! This young group has been taking the country by storm with their amped-up renditions of classic hit songs from legends like Buddy Holly, Elvis Presley, Roy Orbison, Shirley Ellis, The Beatles, Ritchie Valens, Jerry Lee Lewis, and more. These guys (and gal) will have you singing and dancing along, at any age, shaking things up, cutting up the floor, and leaving you completely blown away. This is not your typical tribute band… This is Rock ‘n’ Roll Reignited. Back by popular demand with Allison Kelly joining Jared and Nick who you loved so much when they were here before!

Fresh from the success of OKLAHOMA, SOUTH PACIFIC, and THE KING AND I, Broadway’s greatest composing team wrote an original musical comedy – the first of its kind – to be performed live on TV in 1957. It was the most watched program in television history in its original airing starring Julie Andrews. There have since been two more spectacular TV productions over the years starring such greats as Lesley Ann Warren, Ginger Rodgers, Whitney Houston, Whoopi Goldberg, Jason Alexander, and many more. Now you can enjoy this live stage production of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s musical adaptation of one of the world’s most enduring love stories. This is a show designed to delight the child in all of us. Whether you’re eight or eighty you’ll be captivated by its humor, its romance, its beauty, and its great, great music.

Local restaurants are also bringing regional talent to the area, along with delicious food and refreshing drinks to enjoy while listening!
