THE LONELY HEARTSTRING BAND
FRIDAY, DECEMBER 6, 2019 | BLUEGRASS | $42/$37
The Lonely Heartstring Band embodies the modern American condition - an understanding and reverence for the past that informs a push into the future. George Clements (guitar, vocals) Patrick M'Gonigle (fiddle, vocals) Charles Clements (bass, vocals) Maddie Witler (mandolin) and Gabe Hirshfeld (banjo) bring together their own musical styles to create a sound greater than the sum of its parts. Combining soulful instrumental virtuosity with soaring three-part harmonies, their growing repertoire of original songs and compositions showcases not only their considerable talents, but a dedication to meaningful roots-conscious music.
SATURDAY, DECEMBER 7, 2019 @ 11AM & 1:30PM | FAMILY | $20/$15
TheaterWorksUSA's production of Peter Pan is based on John Caird and Trevor Nunn's 1982 adaptation of the J.M. Barrie play, which was originally developed for London's Royal Shakespeare Company. In the spirit of the original tale, this production tells the story through the eyes of six children living in Edwardian England. Together, they transform the Darling family nursery into Neverland, turning pillows into clouds, long-johns into shadows, an ironing board into a ship's plank, and antique snowshoes into a crocodile's snapping jaws. This enchanting production celebrates childhood and captures the magic of the imagination. Ages 3 and up
STANLEY JORDAN PLAYS JIMI
The Music of Jimi Hendrix
SATURDAY, DECEMBER 7, 2019 @ 8PM | ROCK | $45/$35
World-renowned guitarist Stanley Jordan has developed a new live show called "Stanley Jordan Plays Jimi." This is a tribute show, but it's not pure imitation. Instead Stanley builds on Jimi's legacy in a myriad of creative way. As Stanley explains it, "This is my fantasy Jimi Hendrix concert if Jimi were still alive and playing today. By re-imagining his music and channeling his persona I try to bring that fantasy to life."

THE PAPER BAG PLAYERS: Here We Go!
THURSDAY, DECEMBER 26 & FRIDAY, DECEMBER 27, 2019 @ 11AM & 1:30PM | FAMILY |$20/$15
America's longest-running theater for children, The Paper Bag Players bring us HERE WE GO! a family-friendly hour of new and old sketches featuring hilarious stories, lovable characters, original music, on-stage painting, and signature paper and cardboard sets and costumes. A chair with a mind all its own refuses to be sat upon. A group of trees, with a little help from the audience and their very own angel, discover how to outsmart a woodchopper. A king raises a baby dragon named Two-Teeth to become a fine, noble friend, with a cardboard castle complete with drawbridge and a celebratory fireworks display! In The First Day of School, three children of very different temperaments sing their feelings about the start of a new school year. With vivid paint and lively song, we journey straight out of the galaxy to an undiscovered planet where our astronauts meet a sweet little alien with a sense of humor. These are just a few of the playful flights of imagination in The Paper Bag Players' joyous journey: HERE WE GO! Audiences young and young-at-heart join the fun: laughing, singing, up on their feet and dancing!
