    May 10, 2019 - May 25, 2019 @ Dupree Theater

    This Tony Award-nominated, hilarious, roller skating musical adventure about following dreams despite the limitations others set, rolls along to the original hit score composed by pop-rock legends John Farrar and Jeff Lynne. Based on the Universal Pictures cult-classic movie of the same title, which starred Olivia Newton-John and Gene Kelly, “Xanadu” is hilarity on wheels for adults, children and anyone who has ever wanted to feel inspired.

  3. Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Bluegrass Band, Entertainment Series of Irving

    May 18, 2019, 7:30 PM - 9:30 PM @ Carpenter Hall

    What if The Beatles were actually from somewhere in the Black Mountain Hills of South Dakota? Bands have been covering Beatles tunes for decades, but none quite like Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Bluegrass Band. Imagine the music of the Fab Four shaken up with infusions of bluegrass and jazz and topped off with a classical twist. The result is a most satisfying musical.
