January 13 – Jordan Peterson All-Request Show 7:30 pm Adults $16
Jordan Peterson is not your average "piano man." He performs on land and sea to standing room only crowds, and he continues to gain new fans with each and every performance. This all-request show will be based on what YOU, the audience, want to hear! He can play nearly any request, and Jordan's dynamic vocals and energetic piano playing are something you don't want to miss! For more information about Jordan, visit JordanPeterson.net.
February 17 – FLY Dance Company: The Gentlemen of Hip-Hop 7:30 pm $16/ Students $8
Sponsored by KAAPA Ethanol FLY is an all-male contemporary dance company from Houston, Texas known for its high-energy performances with clever staging to a variety of music, including classical, jazz, pop, hip-hop, experimental, drumming and live sound effects. Labeled an artistic phenomenon, FLY crosses street dance with classical choreographic principles. Their technique is hip hop—very creative, gymnastic, and highly masculine. FLY’s concerts are clean-cut, wholesome artistry designed to cross all audience boundaries—young and old, men and women, sophisticated and unsophisticated—with pieces combining styles and cultures to reflect contemporary Americana. They will do an outreach activity with Minden’s East Elementary school on the following Monday. This project is generously funded by Mid-America Arts Alliance, the National Endowment for the Arts, and the state arts agencies of Arkansas, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, Oklahoma, and Texas.
March 2-4, 9-11, 16-18 – Minden Community Players “Mary Poppins” Fri & Sat 7:30 pm/ Sun 2:30 pm $15
One of the most popular Disney movies of all time is capturing hearts in a whole new way: as a practically perfect musical! Based on the books by P.L. Travers and the classic Walt Disney film, Disney and Cameron Mackintosh's Mary Poppins delighted Broadway audiences for over 2,500 performances and received nominations for nine Olivier and seven Tony Awards, including Best Musical. The jack-of-all trades, Bert, introduces us to England in 1910 and the troubled Banks family. Using a combination of magic and common sense, Mary Poppins must teach the family members how to value each other again. She takes the children on many magical and memorable adventures, but Jane and Michael aren't the only ones upon whom she has a profound effect. Even grown-ups can learn a lesson or two from the nanny who advises that "Anything can happen if you let it."
