In the Heart of the Blue Ridge…in the Heart of the Foothills…in the Heart of Morganton…

                                                                                          

“Feel the Beat” …atCoMMA.

Welcome to MainStage Morganton, 2014-2015, and what promises to be another stellar season on the CoMMA stage.  The stars not only come out but they truly shine as the talents and stories come to life in grand fashion in Season 28.

            If you are a past or current MainStage Season Subscriber, you know the value that goes with being in that same seat show after show, year after year.  Beyond a savings that isnearly 45% off the single ticket price, there are new and exciting benefits that undoubtedly enhance the performance attendance experience for all season ticketholders.

This season, for the first time, join us at Stage One, apre-performancewine receptionprior to four events for all MainStage season ticketholders.  At one hour prior to the stage lights going up, party with other MainStage’ers on the CoMMA mezzanine for some light refreshments and lighthearted fellowship.   Stage One is just how we say thank you for your continued dedication and support.

As for the season itself…Begin by sitting back and relaxing under the willow oaks in the summer fun BackPorch series.  The MainStage season opens with country music star and Grammy winner, Pam Tillis, followed by four national Broadway musical tours, incredible concert performances throughout the year, including a holiday spectacular with legend BJ Thomas, and closing in May with Blood Sweat and Tears...There’s not a theatre standing that offers what our Morganton performance place brings to the city.  Each event promises to please and awe.  Who else can put a ventriloquist act with “Mutts Gone Nuts” and make it work?  Who else boasts the unknown, “THE SHOW 3”, but CoMMA?  Look through this brochure, do the math and compare…CoMMA has no rival.

And if just perhaps the MainStage Morganton season package is not for you, we hope you will join us as a single ticket buyer through 2014 and 2015.  All the seats are good, and one has your name written on it!  But remember, CoMMA tickets are reserved seating, so there are more choices the earlier you make your purchase.

It’s really simple…call the CoMMA Box Office or come by and make plans for a season of joy, laughter,  and most of all, rhythm…like you’ve never experienced before.

 “Feel the Beat…”

From the Director...

Welcome to MainStage Morganton, 2013-2014. As CoMMA enters Season 27, we know that it would not have been possible without the local and regional support of the tens of thousands who continually enjoy and support live stage performances in Morganton. So it is fitting and indeed proper that we say "Thank You" for your role in the memories and successes over the years.

The new MainStage season is offered on the following pages where you will find a wide variety of concerts, Broadway musicals, gripping drama and specialty offerings unsurpassed. There truly is something for everyone. Whether you choose to be a MainStage Morganton season ticketholder or decide to purchase the shows one event at a time, we promise that you will enjoy, and perhaps even be moved, with what lies in store.

By holding the line on ticket prices via blockbooking, artists eager to perform, and having created long-term relationships with quality artist management groups, MainStage Morganton has to be one of the best deals around...and you do not want to miss a second of the new MainStage season.

On behalf of the City of Morganton and those who come to our community as singers, dancers, actors, magicians, acrobats, and more, we truly appreciate the support and 'applause' of the best audience a performer could ever ask for.

So, what's not to like! It never gets old to say, "I know you're gonna love it!!!

- Bill Wilson , Director

ms-Masters-of-Motown-CollageFriday Aug. 23, 2013  |  7:30 pm

MASTERS OF MOTOWN has been called the most entertaining history lesson ever performed! This show authentically reproduces the look, choreography, style and sound made famous by a record label that was relatively unknown at the time but went on to profoundly influence the history of popular music. The performance goes beyond the music to preserve the integrity of the entire Motown experience. For many, MASTERS OF MOTOWN is the ultimate stroll down memory lane. For younger generations, the show offers a way to experience a period in our country's past that produced many of the greatest music acts ever recorded.

The show features a completely live performance with seasoned musicians and world-class performers from The TFC Band. This group has toured extensively world-wide for more than 30 years, performing at private events, festivals, casinos, corporate events and military bases from coast to coast and overseas, including tours of Europe and Africa. After having toured together for decades, The TFC Band created the MASTERS OF MOTOWN show in 2008 as a way to heighten the experience for their fans and deliver the full package—a stage show which captures the sights, sounds and feel of the Motown era.

Based in Virginia Beach, Virginia, the 10-person cast of MASTERS OF MOTOWN has performed to numerous sold-out audiences and garnered rave reviews across the country at venues ranging from community theaters and universities to performing arts venues and concert halls.

20140822-ms-pam-tillis-2-900px     Recording Artist PAM TILLIS has been a formidable force in country music since her first single hit the charts in 1990. She has racked up 14 Top Five hits including six that hit #1, and has sold over 6 million records. An accomplished songwriter, PAM has had her compositions recorded by artists as varied as Chaka Khan, Martina McBride, Highway 101, Juice Newton and Conway Twitty. She was one of the first women in Nashville to produce her own album, and she was awarded the coveted Female Vocalist of the Year by CMA in 1994. In 1999 PAM showed her trademark versatility by being the first female country entertainer to ever star in a Broadway Musical when she appeared in Smokey Joe's Cafe. PAM was inducted into the Grand Ole Opry in 2000.

     PAM TILLIS can tell you what it is like to win big awards, run a record label, sing on Broadway, and sell platinum records, but she'd much rather change the subject to the future. "I've traveled a million miles in my career," says TILLIS. "The next million don't scare me a bit."

ms-Lorrie-Morgan-1-20120828Loretta Lynn Morgan was born to make music... Lorrie Morgan, a child of the Opry, staked her claim as being one of the youngest to have made his/her debut at the Mother Church of Country. Applauded for her talents and commitment to country music and her heritage, Lorrie made history of her own when she became a lifetime member of the Grand Ole Opry at the age of twenty-five; youngest person ever to become a member of the Grand Ole Opry.

Today, Lorrie has become the essence of country music femininity. Having blossomed from a bright-eyed Opry starlet to carrying the torch for many a lady trendsetter—Patsy Cline, Loretta Lynn, Tammy Wynette—Lorrie Morgan has become a renaissance woman of the genre recognized as royalty by her fans and her peers.

Lorrie made her mark with what have now become timeless country standards, "Five Minutes," "Something In Red," "Watch Me" and "What Part Of No" to establish her place as a bright and shining country star—a modern woman making country music history. "I have been a daughter, a bride, a mother, a divorcee, a widow, a single mother, a grandmother, a breadwinner, and ultimately, a survivor. It seems, in many ways, that I am a living, breathing country song and I know what I sing."

Lorrie Morgan has sold over six million records and a trophy room adorned with reminders of gold and platinum successes (including fourteen top ten hits, twelve recorded albums and four Female Vocalist of the Year awards). Her duet partners have included the likes of Frank Sinatra, Johnny Mathis, Andy Williams and The Beach Boys. She's performed on Broadway and abroad.

Like a freshwater pearl, Lorrie Morgan is a natural gem that shines in a palette of colors. Her music, her life, her heart--black, white, lavender or pink, the overtones reflect her light.

"Infectious and unbridled energy.... it blows the roof off..."  - Jeff Johnson, The Chicago Sun Times

THE OFFICIAL BLUES BROTHERS REVUE recreates the live concert experience, integrating the humor and songs from the original film and subsequent albums. Produced by Judy Belushi Pisano and Dan Aykroyd, the Revue pays homage to Chicago's rich history of blues, soul music and gospel in the true spirit of the original BLUES BROTHERS. Under the musical direction of Paul Shaffer, Jake, Elwood and the high-energy eight-piece Intercontinental Rhythm & Blues Revue Band lay down a big sound, performed with the passion and precision of the original BLUES BROTHERS. Fun for all ages, THE OFFICIAL BLUES BROTHERS REVUE strikes the right balance of humor, music and mayhem featuring Wayne Catania and Kieron Lafferty as Jake and Elwood.

The characters of Jake and Elwood Blues, created by John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd in 1978, were initially imagined as frontmen for a fictitious American blues and soul band. Since their film debut in 1980, the irreverent characters have resonated with people around the world and the BLUES BROTHERS have catapulted into a cultural phenomenon and musical, comedic, and cinematic legend.

The end result is a show as fresh and relevant today as it is nostalgic for the purists. The audience gets to know and love four dynamic talents and cheer them on with each exciting, individual performance.

deer camp"DEER CAMP" THE MUSICAL stars Tony Papenfuss and John Voldstad, best known as "My Brother Darryl and my other Brother Darryl," on the Newhart television show.

"DEER CAMP" hilariously follows four fearless deer hunters from on their annual trek to deer camp in search of the elusive 14 point buck. But things are looking bleak this season...After decades of hunting trips, the guys have yet to bring home a single deer and the wives are getting suspicious. This season the need to show their wives that they are the mighty hunters they claim to be. This is not so easy when the thought of drinking beer and hanging out in the deer shack is more appealing than freezing in a deer stand. They find themselves in panic mode on the last day of camp with no deer in sight. Luckily for our guys, what happens at deer camp stays at deer camp.

Laugh and sing a long as they hatch a plan to save their hunting paradise without firing a shot.

ms-LaNisa-Frederick---Letters-Home“LETTERS HOME” puts the current wars in Afghanistan & Iraq front and center by bringing to life actual letters written by soldiers serving in the Middle East. The production is inspired by the New York Times Op-Ed Article “The Things They Wrote” and the subsequent HBO documentary Last Letters Home, and additionally uses letters and correspondences from Frank Schaeffer’s books, Voices From the Front, Letters Home From America’s Military Family, Faith of Our Sons, and Keeping Faith. The play without politicizing gives audiences a powerful portrait of the soldier experience in the ongoing war. The initial production was critically acclaimed and was nominated for a Joseph Jefferson Award for “Outstanding New Play.”

Although the title, ”LETTERS HOME,” implies that all the letters are from soldiers, the piece includes a small number of correspondences from parents – their words, being no less important.  One theme seems to unite their diverse voices; the belief that the person standing beside you is more important than you are. The soldiers help define for the audience—patriotism and what it means to serve our country today, through acts of bravery, compassion, social responsibility, sense of community and brotherhood. Collectively the production gives a voice to a generation that went to war against terror in Afghanistan and to war in Iraq.  More importantly, “LETTERS HOME” reveals the humanity that lies within the war as seen through the eyes of the men and women fighting it.

(Recommended for audiences 15 and over/Language & Dramatic Content)

"I've always been a fan of using music to create a strong emotional connection, and I know these performances along will do just that." - JOHN

Twenty five years and 50 plus recordings into his multi-faceted, ever-evolving musical career, JOHN TESH is finally ready to swing—not metaphorically as in the cliché "for the fences," but literally. On his new Big Band collection and accompanying public television special distributed by APT titled "John Tesh Big Band Live!" the keyboardist fronts a full blown ensemble and horn section playing Great American Songbook classics. The projects mark an all-time first for the lifelong musician—letting his lead vocals shine front and center. For the four-time Emmy Award winner and two-time Grammy nominee, these projects are unique creative departures from his rich history as a composer and performer of "sports music," new age, contemporary jazz and inspirational works. More importantly, and in a deeper sense, they mark a return to his musical roots.

Tesh's highly successful and varied career path includes a 10-year run as anchor on Entertainment Tonight, six hit public television specials, including his landmark Live At Red Rocks in 1994, a string of #1 radio hits, his popular nationally syndicated radio show "Intelligence For Your Life" in which he has 14.5 million listeners, and a high profile advertising and marketing company. His musical accolades since releasing his debut album Tour De France in 1988 include seven million units in total sales; a Keyboard Magazine Award; a 2003 Grammy nomination for "Best Pop Instrumental Album" for his double CD The Power of Love; and gold certification for his Live At Red Rocks album.

With his latest musical ventures, Tesh not only pays homage to his early days as a musician, but also fashions a journey inside the jazz, big band and swing music that shaped the world from the early to mid 20th Century. Recorded at Capitol Records Studios in Hollywood, where Sinatra recorded many of his most enduring sides, John Tesh Big Band features exciting new arrangements of nine standards and three familiar Tesh originals. Tim Landers, Tesh's musical director for the past 25 years, chose Tony Guerrero and Willie Murillo, two veteran jazz trumpeters, to do the 25 piece horn arrangements and orchestrations, respectively. The classic selections include "The Summer Wind," "I've Got The World On A String," "The Way You Look Tonight," "Blue Skies," "In The Mood," "Sway" and "Beyond The Sea." The re-imagined Tesh originals are "Barcelona," "Spanish Steps" and "Give Me Forever."

CHARLYHORSE

Thursday Nov. 6, 2014  |  7:30 pm

20141106-ms-cleverlys-charlyhorse     You ain't seen nuthin' like this! THE CLEVERLYS hail from a remote part of the Ozarks near Cane Spur, Arkansas. This off-the-wall country/comedy band has us wondering if they are on the level or completely off their rocker. It's just pure fun...especially if you have a little 'country' in your roots...and they play some fine music, too.

     CHARLYHORSE, a favorite on CoMMA's BackPorch, comes to the "big stage" for their first time. Superb musicianship accompanied by perfect harmonies make this a great opener on any stage.

MATHEMAGIC – Starring Bradley Fields
Friday Nov. 22  |  10:00 am – School Performance

"Among the top magicians in the entertainment world." - Tennessee State University

"Captivating and amazing!" - Smithsonian Institution

Actor, director and one of the most acclaimed magicians in the world, Bradley Fields began professionally at the age of fourteen. Working as apprentice to actor-magician, Jack Adams, Bradley began performing in schools, nightclubs, theaters, and on television. Using comedy, mime and characterization, Fields developed a style so original, that he became the first magician to appear in rock concerts and at such legendary nightspots as New York's Gaslight, the Bitter End, Washington's Cellar Door and Chicago's Quiet Knight. Newspaper critics at the time compared him to Marcel Marceau, Charlie Chaplin, and Harpo Marx. Variety said, "What was once standard boite fare is now a real novelty."Fields impresses with his work and he walks off to much appreciation." The Rochester Democrat & Chronicle called him "New York's funniest magician."
