Sweeney Todd – The Demon Barber of Fleet Street

October 18 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Sweeney Todd – The Demon Barber of Fleet Street

Presented by AGHS Theatre Department

Oct. 12 – 20, 2018

Sweeney Todd
has become a worldwide success since being awarded eight Tony Awards (including Best Musical), for its Broadway premiere. Stephen Sondheim’s and Hugh Wheeler’s (A Little Night Music, Pacific Overtures) tasty, thrilling, theatrical treat has simultaneously shocked, awed and delighted audiences across the world.

An infamous tale, Sweeney Todd, an unjustly exiled barber, returns to nineteenth-century London, seeking vengeance against the lecherous judge who framed him and ravaged his young wife.

The road to revenge leads Todd to Mrs. Lovett, a resourceful proprietress of a failing pie shop, above which he opens a new barber practice. Mrs. Lovett’s luck sharply shifts when Todd’s thirst for blood inspires the integration of an ingredient into her meat pies that has the people of London lining up… and the carnage has only just begun!

Held in Studio Theater

A Night With Janis Joplin

October 23 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Presented by Turnaround Artists

The Tony Award-nominated Broadway musical, A Night With Janis Joplin is a musical journey celebrating Janis Joplin and the genesis of her musical genius through encounters with her seminal musical influences — Aretha Franklin, Etta James, Odetta, Nina Simone, and Bessie Smith. After each encounter, we hear an explosive Joplin song incorporating those who inspired her into what became her legendary rock & roll style.

Like a comet that burns far too brightly to last, Joplin exploded onto the music scene in 1967 and, almost overnight, became the Queen of Rock n Roll. Her unmistakable voice, filled with raw emotion and tinged with Southern Comfort, made Joplin a must-see headliner from Monterey to Woodstock. Audiences will enjoy Joplin’s favorites, including Piece of My Heart, Cry Baby, Me and Bobby McGee, and many others.

Turnaround Artists is proud to announce that Mary Bridget Davies will be performing. She received a Tony Award nomination for Best Lead Actress in a Musical for her performance as Janis in A Night with Janis Joplin. MBD was also the lead role in the production of Love, Janis. She has toured in Europe with Janis Joplin’s original band, Big Brother and the Holding Company!

Mary Bridget Davies will be accompanied by live back-up singers and a full band.

Rockapella

November 17 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Presented by The Clark Center


“The best musical instrument of all is the human voice – if you’ve seen Rockapella you know that’s the truth.”
– USA Today

As one of the originators of the astonishing full-band sound of “contemporary” a cappella, Rockapella has shown every audience the raw power of pure vocal talent and originality. Their influence is felt everywhere these days- in a capella music shows on network television, the highly successful Pitch Perfect movies, and in student vocal groups that have become popular on college campuses across the country.

Rockapella achieved national fame on PBS’s Where In The World Is Carmen Sandiego? and since then they’ve toured the globe and provided a powerful soundtrack to several generations of vocal music fans, while keeping it all fresh along the way.

With buckets of catchy original pop songs, and complete contemporary revisions of sparkling Motown, pop, and soul classics, this group has always been the one to watch.

“There’s nothing in the way between us and the audience; it’s very human music,” says Rockapella’s Jeff Thacher.

Rockapella – No instruments, no tracks, no mirrors… but always awesome.

Beer and wine available for purchase. Lobby opens one hour before showtime.
