From Sept. 8 through next August, Parker Arts will be offering entertainment events to please people with interests ranging from classical music to dance to comedy to children’s programming. Tickets are available for Family Circle members and others may buy starting in August.
Here is a sampler of events, picked from regional and national performers:
Theater buffs may enjoy American classics such as “A Chorus Line” and “The Full Monty,” produced by Inspire Creative.
For shorter patrons and their parents, the Family Discovery Series offers a look at Central City Opera: “Eureka Street” and Big Bubble Circus plus the Parker Symphony’s “Sounds of the Season” on Dec. 1.
The highly imaginative Wonderbound Dance Company will perform “Wicked Bayou with Clay Rose and the Widow’s Bane,” as well as a program with the Colorado Symphony.
Comedy cts will includes famous funny guy Howie Mandel, who held forth on “Deal or No Deal” and “St. Elsewhere,” as well as Ryan Hamilton.
Celtic music fans will look forward to Natalie MacMaster and Donnell Leahy, while the Colorado Jazz Repertory Orchestra, led by Art Bouton of Lonetree, brings its skilled instrumentalists to “Friday Night Jazz: A Night in New Orleans” and “Ella and the Great Ladies of Song ...”
Holiday music will also include CJRO’s “Big Band Christmas,” as well as Parker Symphony and Parker Chorale concerts and “The Nutcracker of Parker.”
In spring, families will enjoy the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band and, in another realm,: “Me Jane: Adventures of the Young Jane Goodall.” The symphony and chorale will perform and Magician Bill Blagg will make us wonder; “How did he do that???”
The popular “Comedy and Cocktails” returns March 30 and a family performance of “The Full Momty” will involve local actors in the summer with performances July 19 to Aug. 4, 2019.
(Then, it will be time to look forward to yet another season!)
Facilities include the 536-seat PACE Center theater, the Mainstreet Center with its 250-seat theater, and Discovery Park, where free concerts are playing as we speak.
