‘Young Frankenstein’ comes to haunt the Wilson Center in JAX


FSCJ Artist Series and the FSCJ Nathan H. Wilson Center for the Arts are proud to present the 13th Annual High School Summer Musical Theatre Experience!  This program provides theatre opportunities to 7th-12th graders in the First Coast area and allows them to work hands-on with some of the highest recognized local and regional theatre professionals at the FSCJ Nathan H. Wilson Center for the Arts.  This year, participants will perform Young Frankenstein” for six performances only!  Over
70 student performers and technicians have trained for this production
.

From the creators of the record-breaking Broadway sensation, The Producers, comes this monster new musical comedy.  The comedy genius of Mel Brooks adapts his legendarily funny film into a brilliant stage creation – Young Frankenstein!

About the show: Grandson of the infamous Victor Frankenstein, Frederick Frankenstein (pronounced "Fronk-en-steen") inherits his family's estate in Transylvania. With the help of a hunchbacked sidekick, Igor (pronounced "Eye-gore"), and a leggy lab assistant, Inga (pronounced normally), Frederick finds himself in the mad scientist shoes of his ancestors. "It's alive!" he exclaims as he brings to life a creature to rival his grandfathers. Eventually, of course, the monster escapes and hilarity continuously abound.

Every bit as relevant to audience members who will remember the original as it will be to newcomers, Young Frankenstein has all the panache of the screen sensation with a little extra theatrical flair added. It will surely be the perfect opportunity for a production company to showcase an array of talents. With such memorable tunes as "The Transylvania Mania," "He Vas My Boyfriend" and "Puttin' on the Ritz," Young Frankenstein is scientifically proven, monstrously good entertainment.

So nice - we saw ‘Chitty Chitty Bang Bang’ at the Alhambra twice

It’s an old car; no, it’s a boat; no, it’s a plane - it’s “Chitty Chitty Bang Bang”.  Chitty was so nice - we had to see it twice.  If you have guests visiting for this month, you may want to consider bringing them to see the theatre production of “Chitty Chitty Bang Bang” at the Alhambra Theatre & Dining.  This columnist returned to see the show along with her husband and visiting Granddaughter.  The music, dancing and characters are fabulous.  If you read the review from Gala Night, you’ll see that this review features some of the other fine actors and scenes that you will experience when you go to the Alhambra this month.

“Me Ol’ Bamboo”, sung by the Caractacus Potts (Shain Stroff) and the Ensemble is a very colorful number and the choreography from James Kinney* is spectacular.  “Chu-Chi Face” performed by Baron & Baroness Bomburst (Kurt McCall* & Lisa Valdini*) has a lot of finesse and flair as the actors sing and dance across the stage with gusto.  The entire show will keep you entertained as you experience actors moving up & down the steps and throughout the theater.  This is a “must see” for the entire family.  Tickets are still available.  Get yours today.

Cummer Museum adding to their July calendar

One of the most influential voices in American political and social culture for more than 40 years is coming to the Cummer Museum of Art & Gardens. Bob Colacello, close friend and colleague of Andy Warhol, will be speaking at the Cummer Museum on July 19, 2018.
Bob Colacello
Also slated for July will be the newest exhibition at the Cummer Museum of Art & Gardens, Urban Spaces, Open Skies: 20th-Century American Landscape, will be on view July 27, 2018 through February 3, 2019.  Drawn from the Cummer Museum’s extensive collection of works on paper, this presentation will feature more than 30 prints celebrating modern cities and the timeless charms of the country.  Visitors can admire how artists have aptly captured the changing landscape of burgeoning cities like Chicago and New York, with its iconic Brooklyn Bridge, busy streets, workers, and harbors. In contrast to such images, the stillness and serenity of the countryside (with its wide-open spaces, fields, and lakes) offer a welcome respite from the sometimes-chaotic urban life that we live in.

‘Chitty Chitty Bang Bang’ has a car that is unbelievable

Now that the kids are out of school, you only have 39 more days to be able to say, “I witnessed some amazing phenomenons at the Alhambra Theatre & Dining, during the production of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang’”.  This is a fascinating show for all ages, and not just for the young at heart.  There is a different language that resonates throughout the Alhambra, through some of the songs of CCBB, such as “Chu-Chi Face’ (sung by the fabulous Lisa Valdini* as Baroness Bomburst /Miss Phillips and Kurt McCall* as Baron Bomburst/Lord Scrumptious).

As you will see from the slide show, the cast is dressed very colorfully due to the creations from costume designers Camala Pitts and Dorinda Quiles.  Kudos to all the actors for their superb singing, dancing and lines.  It is a treat to see how the construction of the Chitty Car is converted from an old wreck, to a drivable automobile, to a magnificent frying machine; through the artistry of Ian Black.  Many of the actors are from Florida and their creativity is displayed in every aspect of his show which didn’t require a top-named actor or actress (* Actors’ Equity Association).  Thanks to all our professional, local talent.

Made exclusively for this show, the menu from Chef DeJuan Roy is as follows and awaits your palate:
First Course (Choice of One) House Salad chopped iceberg, roasted corn, cherry tomato, green onion, cheddar cheese, Thousand Island *GF*; OR Smoke House Appetizer BBQ smoked sausage with house-made potato salad *GF*.

The ‘Whitney Houston Show’ will soon be in JAX

“The Greatest Love Of All: The Whitney Houston Show” starring tribute artist Belinda Davids, announces first national tour, for one spectacular performance at Jacksonville’s Times-Union Center on Saturday, July 21, 2018.

The tour announcement comes hot on the heels of star Belinda Davids’ lauded performance on Fox TV’s Showtime at the Apollo Christmas Special in December 2017, where her spine-tingling rendition of ‘I Will Always Love You’ – on the very stage where Whitney Houston filmed her famous Greatest Love of All film clip, no less - earned her not only the awe of host Steve Harvey and an enthusiastic ovation from the live audience, but over 10 million views of the performance video on Facebook in the days following.

Though this is Davids’ first major U.S. tour as the principal of “The Greatest Love of All: The Whitney Houston Show,” she’s no stranger to US audiences, having toured extensively as a backing vocalist for the likes of Keri Hilson, Keyshia Cole and Monica in earlier years.  Davids says of her return to the U.S.,
“This is the birthplace of Whitney - her home and her essence and the place and experiences that made her the incredible person and artist that she was. I know Americans hold her memory dear, and I’m first and foremost a Whitney fan myself, so I cannot wait to be surrounded by others who treasure her just as much as I do. Every audience, every fan that I perform to is special, but I know that this tour will be particularly special.”

Audiences across Europe, the UK, Middle East, Asia, Australia, New Zealand and Davids’ home country of South Africa, have already been wowed by the production, which has been touring since 2013.  A five-piece band, backing vocalist and choreographed dancers will accompany Davids on stage as she pays tribute to Houston with live performances of I Wanna Dance With Somebody,” “How Will I Know,” “I Have Nothing,” “Didn’t We Almost Have it All,” “One Moment in Time,” “Queen of the Night” and 15 other chart-topping hits.

Showtime Australia’s international production house, led by respected long-time father and son team Johnny and Jono Van Grinsven, in the roles of Producer and Technical Director respectively, has put together custom-designed lighting, theatrical effects, and more than 20 different hand-crafted costumes to complete the sensory spectacle and keep audiences enthralled through the course of the two-hour show.

‘The Oak Ridge Boys’ bring a variety of sounds to JAX

Staying in town or leaving for vacay, you’ll want to celebrate your love of music by purchasing your tickets and making summer plans and great memories.  One of the most distinctive and recognizable sounds in the music industry that combines Classic Gospel, Country, and Patriotic music is coming to Jacksonville/Orange Park, Florida.  The Oak Ridge Boys” will bring their “Shine the Light Tour” to the Thrasher-Horne Center, on July 20, 2018 at 8 p.m., for one night only.

They’ll bring a string of hits that includes the pop chart-toppers: “Elvira,” as well as “Bobbie Sue,” “Dream On,” “Thank God For Kids,” “American Made,” “I Guess It Never Hurts To Hurt Sometimes,” “Fancy Free,” “Gonna Take A Lot Of River,” “Y'all Come Back Saloon,” and many more.  Throughout their career, they've amassed 12 gold, 3 platinum, and 1 double platinum album, plus 1 double platinum single, and had more than a dozen national Number One singles and over 30 Top Ten hits.

The four-part harmonies and upbeat songs of the Oak Ridge Boys have earned them multiple Grammy, Dove, CMA, and other ACM awards as well as garnered a host of additional industry and fan accolades. In 2008, they were awarded the coveted Academy of Country Music Pioneer Award. And on October 25, 2015, The Oak Ridge Boys were honored with induction into the esteemed and elite Country Music Hall of Fame. Every time they step before an audience, the Oaks bring three decades of charted singles, and 50 years of tradition, to a stage show widely acknowledged as among the most exciting anywhere.

“I feel like I can do what I do on stage just as good now as I could 20 years ago,” says tenor Joe Bonsall. “I plan to be rockin' my tail off out there as long as I'm healthy. The people who come out, who bring their families to see us, deserve everything I've got.”

Bass singer Richard Sterban comments,
“I think our stage show is one of the reasons for our continuity. We're still having fun doing this. We love what we do. Getting on stage and bringing our music to people is still what we live for.”

Restoration continues at the Cummer Museum of Art and Gardens

Following Hurricane Irma, the Museum’s safety committee reviewed emergency preparedness procedures and updated it based on effects from Irma, a practice that the safety committee performs following each storm.  New areas of preparedness have been identified and will be implemented.
The Museum is looking into mitigation options, to minimize damage in the future.  For example, plants that are more tolerant of salt will be planted, and sealed lighting fixtures will be installed that can be submerged for a period of time.

Garden reconstruction remains a major undertaking and focus. The Cummer advisors, WLA Studio, are preparing comprehensive recommendations that honor their inclusion in the National Register of Historic Places while being mindful of practical environmental considerations.  Much of the necessary infrastructure repairs, including new electrical and irrigation systems, will be completed over the summer.

The Cummer Gardens anticipate being ready to put plants in the ground late fall or early spring and look forward to sharing more details about their grand reopening celebration soon.  Stay tuned and please keep the restoration donations coming.

The Florida Theatre - a venue not to be overlooked


The historic nonprofit Florida Theatre in downtown Jacksonville has been recognized by VenuesNow magazine as the #1 “Top Stop” in Florida for 2018, for all venues with up to 2,000 seats.  The designation honours the Florida Theatre as one of the most important stops in the state for touring artists. The venue rankings were determined by attendance from June 1, 2017 through April 31, 2018.

VenuesNow is a leading international trade publication that covers the business side of entertainment and sports, particularly as it relates to venues. The designation honored the Florida Theatre’s “
Outstanding performance!”

The Florida Theatre’s attendance of 140,323 during this period bested the 1,871 seat Barbara Mann Performing Arts Hall in Fort Myers with attendance of 137,944; the 1,741 seat Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall in Sarasota with attendance of 133,201; the 1,168 seat Parker Playhouse in Fort Lauderdale with attendance of 63,003; and the 800 seat Capitol Theatre in Clearwater with attendance of 46,486.

The Florida Theatre also presented the most shows during this period, with 134 taking the historic theatre’s stage, as compared to 109 at the Barbara Mann, 96 at the Van Wezel, 79 at Parker Playhouse and 90 at the Capitol Theatre.

Florida Theatre Vice President of Programming Kevin Stone said, “’The ‘Top Stop’ designation validates the work we’ve been doing to improve our offerings across all genres of music, dance and theatre. If you are a touring artist working in Florida, the Florida Theatre has become an important part of any serious tour itinerary.”  Stone is responsible for booking the Theatre’s performances.

Numa Saisselin, President of the Florida Theatre said, “Jacksonville is becoming a serious entertainment center not just for North Florida and Southern Georgia, but for the entire State of Florida. We’re pleased to play an important part in that effort with our partners, and our brother and sister venues and arts organizations in Jacksonville.”

The historic, nonprofit Florida Theatre is sponsored by Community First Credit Union. For a complete list of upcoming events or to buy tickets visit the Theatre’s official web site.
