The Ultimate Queen Celebration Starring Marc Martel

Bohemian Rhapsody • Somebody to Love • Fat Bottomed Girls • Killer Queen

It’s simple: Queen’s Roger Taylor and Brian May hand-picked singer Marc Martel to take on the lead vocals for their Queen tribute tour. Martel’s killer vocals are heard as Freddie Mercury in the 2018 Bohemian Rhapsody film.

His audition video of “Somebody to Love” garnered 13 million views on YouTube. Marc not only sounds dead-on like Freddie Mercury, but he embodies the heart and soul Freddie poured into every song. The Ultimate Queen Celebration is an evening you’ll be talking about long after the lights go down.

Jersey Boys
Sherry • Big Girls Don’t Cry • Walk Like A Man • Can’t Take My Eyes Off You • December 1963 (Oh, What A Night)

They were just four guys from Jersey until they sang their very first note. They had a sound nobody had ever heard…and the radio just couldn’t get enough of it. But while their harmonies were perfect onstage, it was a very different story off stage—one that has made them an international sensation all over again.

Go behind the music and inside the true-life story of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons in the Tony® Award-winning musical phenomenon, Jersey Boys. From the streets of New Jersey

to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, this is the musical that’s just too good to be true.

Jersey Boys is not recommended for all ages. The show contains smoke, gun shots, strobe lights, drug references, sexual situations, and profane “authentic Jersey language.”

Finding Neverland

Finding Neverland is “far and away the best musical of the year!” (NPR).

The winner of Broadway.com’s Audience Choice Award for Best Musical is a breathtaking smash that “captures the kid-at-heart,” says Time magazine. Vogue cheers, “It’s a must-see that you’ll remember for years to come!”

Originally directed by visionary Tony®-winner Diane Paulus and based on the critically acclaimed Academy® Award-winning film, Finding Neverland tells the incredible story behind one of the world’s most beloved characters: Peter Pan. Playwright J.M. Barrie struggles to find inspiration until he meets four young brothers and their beautiful widowed mother. Spellbound by the boys’ enchanting make-believe adventures, he sets out to write a play that will astound London theatergoers. With a little bit of pixie dust and a lot of faith, Barrie leaves his old world behind for Neverland where nothing is impossible and the wonder of childhood lasts forever. The magic of Barrie’s classic tale springs spectacularly to life in this heartwarming theatrical event.

The Common Read

Gary Schoeniger – Co-Author of Who Owns the Ice House?

Clifton Taulbert – Co-Author of Who Owns the Ice House?

In the late 1950s, Glen Allan, Mississippi, was a poor cotton community. For many, it was a time and place where few dared to dream. Who Owns The Ice House? chronicles Uncle Cleve’s journey from life in the Mississippi Delta at the height of legal segregation to being recognized by Time magazine as “one of our nation’s most outstanding emerging entrepreneurs.” Gary Schoeniger and Clifton Taulbert create a powerful and compelling story that captures the essence of an entrepreneurial mindset. It reaches into the past to remind us of the timeless and universal principles that can empower anyone to succeed.
