It’s MAGICPublished 12:02am Saturday, September 21, 2013
That’s how new CAC season is being described…
T he 41st season of Covington Arts Council performances is going to be simply magical, said Paula Harr, CAC’s executive director.
“It’s about illusions, great music and fabulous comedy,” Harr said of the season. “And there’s nothing in the world like live theater. You can see a TV show, but to see it live is a whole different experience. Our ticket prices, it’s cheaper than going to the movies, plus you’re supporting a local group.”
Harr said The Spencers, a husband-and-wife duo, will make their third appearance in Andalusia as part of this year’s CAC season.
Their “Theater of Illusion” is described as a
“stark contrast to the traditional magic show” and the couple is described by critics as “modern day Houdinis.”
“This couple brings their props in a 65-foot customized truck and trailer,” Harr said. “It’s not a rabbit being pulled out of a hat show. These people are simply amazing.”
Next, Andalusia will host the “world famous” Glenn Miller Orchestra.
“I’m really excited about that,” Harr said. “As far as big bands go, they’re the gold standard. Their music is wonderful, and this will be a fabulous show for anyone who loves music.”
Rounding out the calendar will be performances by comedienne Etta May and “America’s premiere doo-wop ensemble” and openers for Jay Leno’s Las Vegas show, the Alley Cats.
At $50 each, season tickets are the best deal in town to get four shows, Harr said. Individual tickets will be $15 in advance; $18 at the door and $10 for students.
