The Perseverance Theater’s “A Christmas Carol” was one of the highlights of last season’s Cailloux Performances.

 

Playhouse 2000 is inviting the public to look ahead to a new season of entertaining, enlightening events with a free party on Sunday.

Managers of the Kathleen C. Cailloux City Center for the Performing Arts, Playhouse 2000 are inviting the public to enjoy hors d’oeuvres, beverages and a presentation previewing the six events that will make up the 2019-20 Cailloux Performances Season.

After the 3 p.m. presentation, guests will be able to immediately lock in their favorite seats and save as much as 15 percent by purchasing their “Full Season” or “Pick Three” ticket packages.

The Cailloux Performances were founded in 2012 in order to bring the world of performing arts to Kerrville, according to a press release from the center. The first series included a set of three concerts featuring John Denver tribute artist Ted Vigil, the world-famous Four Freshmen, and, direct from Russia, the Nikolai Massenkoff Folk Festival.

Since then, the series has grown to encompass six events from fall to spring, with an emphasis on offering a variety of arts and artists from across the globe. 

Previous highlights have included London-based a capella band Semi-Toned, Canadian dancers of The Step Crew, Japan’s Golden Dragon Acrobats and internationally famous acts such as The Dallas Brass, Broadway Live and The Glenn Miller Orchestra. 

Art forms represented have included folk dance and ballet, rock, country, folk, jazz, pop and classical music, and a wide variety of amazing performance art including Vocal Trash, Magicians Nelson Illusions, concert re-creators Resurrection: A Journey Tribute, and stage artists ArtRageous.

Over the years, the series has continuously offered a wide variety of carefully selected events designed to enhance the quality of life in Kerrville and the Hill Country, according to the press release. 

“The upcoming season promises to bring the same commitment to high quality entertainment and ‘something for everyone’ appeal that audiences have come to expect,” states the release.

All are invited to Sunday’s event, which will be at The Kathleen C. Cailloux City Center for the Performing Arts, 910 Main St.
