The Warner Theatre will welcome back Cash Is King, the music of Johnny Cash, June Carter and The Tennessee Three, to the Nancy Marine Studio Theatre Saturday, July 23 at 8:00 pm.

Cash Is King brings the legendary rebel Johnny Cash back to life in this high energy and entertaining re-creation show. Now you can experience the father of Outlaw Country as he was in his prime, from his Sun Records days to his historic concert at Folsom Prison. Singer Brian Chicoine captures Cash's trademark baritone, while his band delivers the infectious, driving rhythm of The Tennessee Three. Of course, it wouldn't be a Johnny Cash show without Mrs. Cash, June Carter, brought to life by Vicky St. Pierre on such classic duets as "Jackson". With authentic costumes and stories from Cash's eventful life, Cash Is King is the true Johnny Cash experience.

Tickets are $30. For tickets, call the Warner Box Office at (860) 489-7180 or visit 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.
