Georgia Southern University’s Performing Arts Center Announces 2010-2011 Season Schedule
Season ticket renewals will begin next week for the 2010-2011 season at Georgia Southern University’s Performing Arts Center which will feature a diverse blend of music, dance and dramatic performances including Stomp! and A Chorus Line.
‘Fans of theatre and music have much to look forward to as we begin our new season,” said Performing Arts Center (PAC) Director Albert Pertalion. ‘We are thrilled to bring performers and performances that have electrified crowds around the world here to Statesboro, and we urge people to buy their tickets early to these in-demand shows.”
The season opens Friday, September 24 with the return of the Carolina Chocolate Drops. This string-band trio was such a hit when they performed at the PAC two years ago that audiences clamored to have them return.
Champions of the Dance, which is the stage version of the hit television seriesDancing with the Stars, will ‘wow” audiences on October 8. Many of the same dancers and the same choreographer from the television series make up this stage performance complete with amazing costumes, sets, and lighting.
On November 5, Gershwin on Broadway will delight audiences. A pianist and two vocalists will perform some of George Gershwin’s most beloved classics from the 1920’s and 1930’s.
Christmas comes a little early to the Performing Arts Center on November 18 when vocalist John Berry performs. His rich baritone voice lends a quality to holiday selections that have made him an area favorite.
The percussion extravaganza Stomp! is guaranteed to be one of the hottest tickets of the season. This musical that originated in London has brought audiences to their feet around the globe. The cast takes ordinary – and extraordinary – objects and turns them into instruments during this enthralling show that has garnered rave reviews worldwide and is sure to do so when it is performed at the PAC March 8.
Tango Buenos Aeries brings the world’s most romantic, and seductive, dance to the PAC on March 24.
The season ends with the classic Broadway smash A Chorus Line on April 12. This musical about a New York audition has thrilled audiences for decades. Fans who want to see this show are encouraged to purchase their tickets early. Season ticket renewals will be on sale from August 10 through August 25. New season ticket subscriptions are available beginning August 31, and single tickets will go on sale September 14.
