Frank Sinatra Tribute Set for Warner Theatre, 4/27
Steve Kazlauskas is recognized as one of the foremost authorities on Sinatra and his music. He is a true tribute artist and makes no attempt to be a look and sound alike clone. With a vocal range that allows him to sing Frank's songs in their original keys, he's able to reach and sustain those high notes and croon softly on those signature low notes that were part of Sinatra's distinctive singing style. His fans agree, it's about the next best thing to hearing Frank himself perform this timeless music. From Vancouver to Los Angeles and from West Palm Beach to New York audiences marvel at Steve's unique ability to bring the memory of this cherished entertainer to life.
Tickets are $18 and can be purchased by calling the Warner Box Office at 860-489-7180 or online at www.warnertheatre.org
Built by Warner Brothers Studios and opened in 1931 as a movie palace (1,772 seats), the Warner Theatre was described then as "Connecticut's Most Beautiful Theatre." Damaged extensively in a flood, the Warner was slated for demolition in the early 1980s until the non-profit Northwest Connecticut Association for the Arts (NCAA) was founded and purchased the theatre. The Warner reopened as a performing arts center in 1983, and restoration of the main lobbies and auditorium was completed in November 2002. In 2008, the new 50,000 square foot Carole and Ray Neag Performing Arts Center, which houses a 300 seat studio theatre, 200 seat restaurant and expansive school for the arts, was completed. Today, the Warner is in operation year-round with more than 160 performances and 100,000 patrons passing through its doors each season. Over 10,000 students, pre K-adult, participate in arts education programs and classes. Together, with the support of the community, the Warner has raised close to $17 million to revitalize its facilities. NCAA's mission is to preserve the Warner Theatre as an historic landmark, enhance its reputation as a center of artistic excellence and a focal point of community involvement, and satisfy the diverse cultural needs of the region.
