Artist Series: Chi Town Transit Authority

The 2018-2019 season promises to be an exciting line-up of great entertainment for all ages opening August 30 with Atlanta-based Chi-Town Transit Authority bringing back the legendary sounds of the band Chicago.  Introducing a phenomenal group of seven players who have made a life study of the music of Chicago Transit Authority, Chi-Town brings the soul and sound of the original group to you as never heard or seen before. All the hits from “25 Or 6 To 4", to "Beginnings", to "Does Anybody Really Know What Time it Is?” will be covered in this concert that will be sure to command encores and standing ovations with every audience. Learn more at  A Meet the Artist Reception for season ticket holders will be hosted by Tyndall Federal Credit Union. 

Artist Series: A Band Called Honalee

On October 30 A Band Called Honalee, a modern-day folk trio inspired by the legacy of Peter, Paul & Mary, and featuring the music of Bob Dylan, The Mamas & The Papas, The Byrds, Simon & Garfunkel, and others from the 1960’s folk rock era, comes to the Chipola stage.  Musically accomplished, interactive and energetic, their shows allow audiences to experience this timeless music live onstage once again.  The group believes the melodies and messages of the 1960s folk and folk/rock era are just as relevant today as they were when they were first sung, perhaps even more so.  Their mission is to share this uniquely American music with new audiences, while rekindling the passion of life-long fans.  Most of all, they celebrate the power of these songs to inspire people and bring them together once again. Learn more at A Meet the Artist Reception for season ticket holders will be hosted by Hancock Bank.

This event will bring those photographs and letters to life with theatrical monologues written directly from the personal pages of history. Patrons will have the opportunity to see these pieces and other artifacts in the Art Gallery exhibit coinciding with the production that evening. Since its founding, the Institute has continued to enable thousands of veterans to preserve their legacies of service.

Almost Maine

The 2018-19 season opens with Almost, Maine, Oct. 18-21. Almost, Maine, is a town that’s so far north, it’s almost not in the United States - it’s almost in Canada.  And it almost doesn’t exist. Because its residents never got around to getting organized. So it’s just Almost. One cold, clear Friday night in the middle of winter, while the northern lights hover in the sky above, Almost’s residents find themselves falling in and out of love in the strangest ways.  Knees are bruised.  Hearts are broken.  Love is lost, found, and confounded.  And life for the people of Almost, Maine will never be the same. It’s love. But not quite. Tickets are available at the CFA Box Office or online beginning Oct. 4. ACT Fund members may purchase tickets Sept. 27.

Beauty and The Beast

The Academy Award-winning film Disney’s Beauty and the Beast comes to life in this romantic and beloved take on the classic fairytale (Feb. 21-24, 2019).  The stage version includes all of the wonderful songs written by Alan Menken and the late Howard Ashman, along with new songs by Menken and Tim Rice.  This “tale as old as time” tells of Belle, a young woman in a provincial town, and the Beast, who is really a young prince trapped under the spell of an enchantress.  Tickets go on sale Feb. 7, with ACT Fund tickets available Jan. 31. The “Be Our Guest!” Reception on Feb. 23 at 5:30 p.m., is a special benefit for 2018-19 ACT Fund members only. Guests will enjoy a sweet treat and have the opportunity to meet cast members and take photos before the show.
