The Nampa Civic Center is proud to announce its exciting 2016-2017 Performing Arts Series. This season’s lineup includes something for everyone.
The season opens with the fan favorite McManus Comedies: A Fine and Pleasant Misery. Tim Behrens and his one-man show give just enough details to connect each viewer to each misadventure. The Salt Lake Tribune writes, “Behrens brand of humor keeps the show fast paced, raucous and fun to watch.”
This season also marks the anticipated premiere of the Moscow Ballet and its rendition of Swan Lake. Revered as the epitome of classical ballets, Swan Lake is a gripping tale of love, betrayal, and the triumph of good over evil. It is the haunting story of Odette, a young maiden bewitched by the evil sorcerer von Rothbart under whose spell young maidens are condemned to be swans by day and human only at night. New York Times writer and Chief Dance Critic, Alastair Macaulay writes, “Expansive … transcendent music … the Russian style is elegantly generous.”
In addition, the Performing Arts Series includes the pop-culture phenomenon and American Idol Winner Taylor Hicks. The Season 5 winner will make his debut in Nampa Jan. 14. Don’t miss the pop-TV icon serenade with you his one of a kind voice and musical influence.
Season ticket holders are also first in line for Hotel California: A Salute to the Eagles. For more than two decades, HOTEL CALIFORNIA has touched the hearts of fans all over the world, by faithfully and accurately reproducing the Grammy award winning sounds of the Eagles.
The season wraps up with two amazing female vocalists. Alexis Cole will warm the hearts of so many as she treats audiences to the Magic of Disney Love Songs.
The Annie Moses Band, fresh off their newly produced PBS special, “The Art of the Love Song” will wow Nampa the same way they do audiences at the Grand Ole Opry.
“This is possibly one of the best star studded Performing Arts Series in recent history,” said the Civic Center’s Director John Cantlon. “I am happy to say that the 2016-2017 Season delivers solid entertainment from world class ballet to comedy to great music. There is truly something for everyone. As one of Idaho’s premier performing arts centers, we continue to fulfill our mission to bring sheer delight while creating great memories in a warm and intimate setting.”
