With hits like “Dancing Queen”, “Take a Chance on Me”, “Mama Mia”, “Fernando” and many more, the fun and unbelievably catchy music of ABBA is a pop music phenomenon that still spreads like wildfire, decades after ABBA’s last live performance.

March 22 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Presented by The Clark Center

Sponsored in Memory of Yai Yai & Heiny


“The most dangerous combination since nitro and glycerin.”

There have been many imitators, but there is only one duo in North America sanctioned by Dan Aykroyd and Judith Belushi to don the official hat and sunglasses and walk in the legendary footsteps of Jake and Elwood Blues.

Under the musical direction of Paul Schaffer, The Official Blues Brothers Revue pays homage to Chicago’s rich history of blues, soul music and gospel in the true spirit of the original Blues Brothers.

With Wayne Catania as Jake, Keiron Laffery as Elwood, and backed by a powerhouse band, The Official Blues Brother Revue lays down a big sound performed with passion, precision, and pure soul.

They strike the right balance of humor, music, and mayhem in a show that is fun for all ages and packed with classic hits from the Blues Brothers catalog, including “Soul Man”, “Sweet Home Chicago”, Rubber Biscuit” , and more.

Irish Comedy Tour

March 24 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Presented by Turnaround Artists

The Irish Comedy Tour takes the party atmosphere of a Dublin pub and combines it with a boisterous, belly-laugh band of hooligans.

The clover — make that clever — comedians, whose ancestors hail from the Emerald Isle, include Detroit native Derek Richards; Boston-born Mike McCarthy; Nova Scotia’s Damon Leibert; and from Inchicore, a suburb of Dublin, Ireland Derrick Keane.

Audiences howl at Richards’ tales about his mom’s dog, the holidays and dating a stripper. He has appeared on The Bob & Tom Show, XM and Sirius, and The Weather Channel’s Top 10.

McCarthy’s no-holds-barred humor has landed him on Comedy Central and Showtime. The “comedy barbarian,” as he calls himself, takes no prisoners when it comes to poking fun at society’s most sensitive topics.

Leibert’s unique and energetic style of fiddle playing lies somewhere between the driving dance beat of Cape Breton, and the lyrical music of Ireland. His power-packed performance adds an incredible dimension to the show.

And finally Keane, originally from Inchicore, Derrick first distinguished himself musically when the duo in which he sang and played swept the All Ireland Talent Competition. His band, Inchicore, sets the gold standard for the Irish music scene in New England and across North America.

Don’t miss these hilarious Irish American comedians as they tear apart as well as validate all of the Irish myths and stereotypes.

April 6 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Presented by The Clark Center

Sponsored by Stacy A. Korsgaden Insurance Agency- Farmers Insurance


The Travelin’ McCourys do not stand still. They are on the road—and online— entertaining audiences with live shows that include some of the best musicians and singers from all genres.

It’s always different, always exciting, and always great music. As the sons of bluegrass legend Del McCoury, Ronnie McCoury on mandolin and Rob McCoury on banjo continue their father’s work — a lifelong dedication to the power of bluegrass music to bring joy into people’s lives.

The band has a confidence that only comes with having paid their dues with twenty years on the bluegrass road.
Other groups and new fans hear this immediately — the tight rhythm, the soulful material, and the confidence in taking bluegrass from the safety of the shore into uncharted waters.

Listen as The Travelin’ McCourys tell the story of bluegrass- from the deep roots of the past, out to the newest, greenest leaves that are just starting to grow.

Presented by The Clark Center

This all-Canadian cast has been touring for the past ten years, from Disneyland to Russia, recreating the look and sound of the Bee Gees.

Capturing a full history of the Bee Gees, Night Fever includes Bee Gees hits from every stage of their career, including “To Love Somebody,” “Massachusetts,” I Got to Get A Message,” “I Started A Joke,” “Jive Talking,” “More Than A Woman,” “Nite Fever,” “You Should Be Dancing,” “Tragedy,” “Stayin’ Alive,” and many more.

Broadway’s Next Hit Musical!

May 4 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Presented by The Clark Center

Sponsored by Central Coast Comedy Theater & RyLo Media Design


Every song is fresh.
Every scene is new.
Every night is different.
It’s all improvised
and it’s all funny!

Deb Rabbai, Producer “It’s something like you’ve never seen before, because nobody’s ever seen it before ”

The hilarious Broadway’s Next Hit Musical is the only unscripted theatrical awards show and stage musical. The cast is a team of some of the most talented and experienced improv comedians and musicians in New York City.

The first half of the show is a parody of a typical awards show. The cast takes fictional “hit song” suggestions from the audience. They improvise the lyrics and create an entirely spontaneous evening of music and laughs, competing against each other to create the audience’s favorite song of the evening.

The audience votes for a winner, and in the second half of the show, the cast turns the winner’s song into a full-blown improvised musical, complete with memorable characters, witty dialogue, and plot twists galore.

Broadway’s Next Hit Musical has been seen recently at The Triad, the Tribeca Film Festival, and the New York Musical Theatre Festival.

Under the direction of improv veterans Rob Schiffman and Deb Rabbai, the show was hailed by TheaterWeek as “brilliant”, and the New York post called Broadway’s Next Hit Musical “remarkable”.

Don’t miss the next great American musical – it could be written for you!

What fake “Hit Song” title will YOU suggest? (Can’t be an actual song title.)

Note: Only Family – friendly humor!
