Shrek Jr, The Musical

November 9 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Presented by Coastal Performing Arts Foundation (CPAF)

Coastal Youth Theater is bringing the fantastical world of Shrek to life!

Based on the beloved DreamWorks film, Shrek The Musical Jr. presents a treasure trove of creativity, including vibrant costumes, sets, puppets (there is a fire-breathing dragon after all) and more! Irreverently fun for the whole family, Shrek proves that beauty is truly in the eye of the ogre.

Coastal Youth Theater (the group who brought you Annie, Fiddler on the Roof, Hairspray, Aladdin and others) is proud to be performing this production. While there is bright, fun, vibrancy in the costumes, music, and sets, the underlying message is one of great importance for any age – acceptance. Acceptance of who we are as individuals and of each other. Acceptance of our weaknesses so we can turn them into strengths, and of understanding that while we are all different we all have our purpose and are making a difference in this big crazy world.

Director Natalia Salsbury,, musical director Mark Robertshaw, and choreographer Brianna Deveraux will once again bring their magic to the Clark Center with this unbelievable production. It’s a must see for everyone!

Held in the Studio Theater

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.
