Dirty Dancing: The Classic Story On Stage

Dance Play, Drama, Musical
Dirty Dancing: The Classic Story On Stage is an unprecedented live experience, exploding with heart-pounding music, passionate romance and sensational dancing. Seen by millions across the globe, this worldwide smash hit features the hit songs 'Hungry Eyes,' 'Hey Baby,' 'Do You Love Me?' and the heart-stopping '(I’ve Had) The Time Of My Life.' It’s the summer of 1963, and 17-year-old Frances 'Baby' Houseman is about to learn some major lessons in life as well as a thing or two about dancing. On vacation in New York’s Catskill Mountains with her older sister and parents, Baby shows little interest in the resort activities, and instead discovers her own entertainment when she stumbles upon the staff quarters when an all-night dance party is in full swing. Mesmerized by the raunchy dance moves and the pounding rhythms, Baby can’t wait to be part of the scene, especially when she catches sight of Johnny Castle, the resort dance instructor. Baby’s life is about to change forever as she is thrown in at the deep end as Johnny’s leading lady both on-stage and off with breathtaking consequences. Don’t miss your chance to see this record-breaking live theatre sensation. You’ll have the time of your life.

Travis Tritt

Country, Bluegrass
This Grammy-winning, singer/songwriter from Marietta, GA, once the southern-rocking outlaw of country music, is now a 30-year veteran of the Nashville scene who has received multiple awards from the Country Music Association and has been a member of the Grand Ole Opry since 1992. Over the years, he's also explored other musical genres, including a duet with soul music star Sam Moore in 2006 and then teaming up with Randy Jackson (of "American Idol" fame) in 2007 for "The Storm," where he tested the waters of R&B, soul and blues-infused songs, which put him back on the charts with the hit single, "You Never Take Me Dancing."

Jerry Douglas Presents The Earls of Leicester

Bluegrass, Cover/Tribute Band/Performer
Jerry Douglas presents The Earls of Leicester, a bluegrass powerhouse that came together to present the legendary music of '50s and '60s icons Earl Scruggs and Lester Flatt. The band released its eponymous debut in 2014 to immediate acclaim, including the 2015 Grammy for Bluegrass Album of the Year and sweeping wins at the International Bluegrass Music Association Awards. With their second album, the July 2016 release "Rattle & Roar," the Earls have conjured up a fresh batch of Flatt & Earl Scruggs songs, delivered with the Earls' now-signature blend of homage, virtuosity, and perspective. Douglas remains the band's producer and hypnotic dobroist, joined by Shawn Camp on lead vocals and guitar, Jeff White on the high harmony and mandolin, Charlie Cushman on banjo and guitars, Johnny Warren on fiddle, and Barry Bales from Alison Krauss & Union Station on vocals and bass.
