The Clermont Performing Arts Center on Tuesday announced its 2019-20 season, “Impressions in Time.” The performances make up a rich tapestry interwoven with classics from the world of theater, music, and pop culture, a news release states.
Season packages and individual show tickets go on sale at noon Tuesday, June 11. Tickets are available at clermontpac.com, at the center’s box office at 3700 S. U.S. Highway 27 (open 1-5pm p.m. Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday), or by calling 352.394.4800.
“It’s entertainment at its finest at Lake County’s premier venue,” Clermont City Manager Darren Gray says in the release.
The newly refurbished Clermont Performing Arts Center includes the Mainstage—Lake County’s largest performance hall at 1,200 seats—and a 250-seat Black Box Theater.
The season debuts with entertainer Tony Danza and his four-piece band’s hit show, “Standards & Stories.” Combining timeless music with wit, charm, storytelling, and a dash of soft shoe and ukulele performances, Tony performs a selection of his favorite standards from “The Great American Songbook” while interweaving stories about his life and personal connection to the music.
Other Mainstage shows include “Celtic Yuletide” from “Riverdance” tenor Michael Londra; the award-winning circus duo Great DuBois; the popular “Nunsense” play performed by the Moonlight Players troupe; and “Mutts Gone Nuts,” a hilarious canine show.
An amazing concert lineup includes “Stars of the Sixties with Herman’s Hermits”; for Beatles fans, “1964 The Tribute”; “Hotel California,” the original tribute to the Eagles; “The Queen’s Cartoonists,” a jazz combo with a funny bone; and the comic opera “The Pirates of Penzance.”
The Black Box Theater continues to provide dazzling programs in an intimate setting, including fan-favorite “SAK Comedy Lab,” critically acclaimed “Letters from Home,” and the Friday Night showcase, featuring some of the hottest comics and variety acts in the country. The signature matinee series, “You Are There, Too!” returns with Emmy Award-winning host Charlie Grinker, according to the release.
