The Kathleen C. Cailloux City Center for the Performing Arts is planning a full summer slate.
Events fill the calendar from May to September at The Cailloux City Center in Kerrville — with something for everyone to enjoy.
Playhouse 2000 will open the third production in their 2019 Season on June 13. The modern comedy “Women In Jeopardy” features a strong cast and edgy script that will liven up the VK Garage Theater for three weekends. Tickets are just $22 for general admission.
Television, film and stage superstar John Schneider is also a talented and successful country music singer. The actor who created the role of Bo Duke on “The Dukes of Hazzard” had many top-10 country hits, including “I’ve Been Around Enough to Know,” “You’re The Last Thing I Needed Tonight,” and “Country Girls.”
John will bring those hits and more to “An Evening With John Schneider” on June 22 at 7:30 p.m. The night will include a collection of stories about stars he’s worked with through the years, offering a chance to get to know him in a more personal way. Tickets range from $20 to $35.
The following weekend, Branson star and multiple-award-winning artist Shoji Tabuchi will present the full show that rivals major events in New York and Las Vegas, but maintains the perfect atmosphere for the whole family.
The Shoji Tabuchi Show will be in The Cailloux Theater on June 29 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets range from $41 to $51.
Yellow Lab Productions will offer their latest production in the VK Garage Theater on July 11, 12 and 13 at 7:30 p.m. each night. Admission to Yellow Lab shows are $15.
The Dynamic Learning Center will partner with the Dietert Center and NASA to present “A Tribute to Apollo 11,” on July 11 at 6 p.m. The evening celebrates 50 years since the most spectacular achievement in the history of space flight, the first human footsteps on the moon.
NASA pioneers Gerry Griffin, Jack Lousma and Tom Moser, all of whom were personally involved in the flight heard round the world, will be part of a panel of experts who will share first-hand accounts of the journey that led to this achievement.
Attendance at “A Tribute to Apollo 11” is free, but registration is required. Tickets are available through the Dietert Center by phone at 830-792-4044 or online at www.clubed.net. Registration is also available in person or through the Cailloux City Center box office.
Another free event is offered on July 24, when Trinity Baptist Church presents a concert by the nationally famous vocal ensemble The Centurymen on July 24 at 7:30 p.m. The group is one of America’s largest and most decorated men’s choruses. Though free, tickets are required, and can be requested at the church or at the Cailloux box office after June 15.
P2K Youth Theater’s annual Summer Musical Theater Camp will present the results of six weeks of study in production of Disney’s “Beauty and The Beast Jr.” on July 26 and 27 at 7:30 p.m. and July 28 at 2:30 p.m. in the Cailloux Theater. These kids will offer a family-friendly experience that you can enjoy for just $20 for adults, $10 for children.
Playhouse 2000’s summer comedy, the fourth production of season 2019, is the uproarious “Southern Fried Funeral.” When Dewey Frye dies suddenly, his family is left to pick up the pieces — if they don’t kill each other first.
“Southern Fried Funeral” will be seen in the VK Garage Theater Aug. 9-25, Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 p.m., with Sunday matinees Aug. 18 and 25 at 2:30 p.m. Tickets are $22 for general admission.
Direct from Chicago, Lisa Rock (of national touring show “Close to You: The Music of The Carpenters”) and Melissa Minyard (of Broadway’s original production of “Les Miserables”) and their four-piece band will bring ’80s hits back to life. “’80s Night Out” will play the Cailloux on Aug. 17 at 7:30 p.m.
With tickets priced at just $15 to $25, it’s the perfect time to crimp your hair, put on those stirrup pants and shoulder pads to dance and sing along to favorites like Irene Cara’s “Flashdance (What a Feeling),” Pat Benatar’s “Love is a Battlefield,” Whitney Houston’s “How Will I Know” and others.
The Cailloux wraps up the summer with country music star Mark Wills, who will sing his number-one hits “Jacob’s Ladder,” “Wish You Were Here” and many more on Sept. 21 at 7:30 p.m.
Sponsored by Michael and Delayne Sigerman and Kelly and Kathy Leonard, this concert by one of the newest members of the Grand Ole Opry has seats available from $25 to $50.
