Looking Ahead: Wolf Gang and Drumline Live Arrive This Weekend

October 29, 2012

The upcoming weekend is a busy one for Blumenthal Performing Arts.  Here are a few things we’re excited about this week:

Did you hear?  In response to the great demand for Wolf Gang’s first appearance in Charlotte, their 8 pm show on Saturday, Nov. 3 is being moved from Stage Door Theater to the Booth Playhouse to accommodate more fans! Featuring special guests Atlas Genius and The Royal Concept, this will be a general admission seated show with a limited standing area at the front of the stage. All Wolf Gang tickets purchased for the Stage Door Theater will be honored at the Booth Playhouse.

Scottish-born Max McElligott attributes his diverse musical output to being raised listening to his parents’ record collection and honing his taste from an early age. “Growing up I was always listening to what they were blaring in the living room which would be David Bowie, Fleetwood Mac or the Talking Heads,” he says.  Here’s a taste of what you can expect this Saturday!

Drumline Live returns to Charlotte this Sunday, Nov. 4, in Belk Theater at Blumenthal Performing Arts Center.

This versatile group of musicians and dancers brings an explosive energy and athleticism to an eclectic mix of sounds. Equally at home with the hottest contemporary hip hop, R&B, classic Motown tunes, and the rousing sounds of the great brass tradition, Drumline Live shares the American marching band experience with a wider audience.

“We’ve taken the excitement of an HBCU football game halftime show, increased the intensity by a thousand watts, and created a musical journey that will touch every emotion,” said Don P. Roberts, creator and director.

  • Fabulous, Baby!  Sister Act The Musical is ON SALE NOW!

Sister Act tells the story of Deloris Van Cartier, a wannabe diva whose life takes a surprising turn when she witnesses a crime and the cops hide her in the last place anyone would think to look—a convent!  The feel-amazing musical comedy smash rejoices Jan. 8-13 in Ovens Auditorium.

Under the suspicious watch of Mother Superior, Deloris helps her fellow sisters find their voices as she unexpectedly rediscovers her own. Sister Act is a sparkling tribute to the universal power of friendship.  CLICK HERE for more information on Sister Act.

Charlotte is one of a handful of cities Jekyll & Hyde is playing prior to its Broadway opening. American Idol star and Tony® Award nominee Constantine Maroulis joins with Grammy® Award nominee and R&B superstar Deborah Cox to inject new life into the classic tale of good and evil.  CLICK HERE for more information on Jekyll & Hyde.
