|Arts Council will kick-off return with 'The Curious Savage'|
|Written by Holyoke Enterprise|
Phillips County Arts Council will begin the annual membership drive at this weekend’s three performances of The Curious Savage.
Memberships for the 2009-10 entertainment series will be sold, starting with the kick-0ff weekend.
On Friday, Aug. 7 the performance will be in Haxtun at the Community Center. On Saturday and Sunday Aug. 8-9, the performances will take place at KarDale’s in Holyoke.
PCAC membership ticket holders will be permitted the same number of punches as the number of performances. Punches may be used all on one performance or one for each performance. Tickets are fully transferable and may be used by anyone if the holder is unable to attend a performance.
The season opens Saturday, Oct. 3 with Everything Fitz by the Fitzgerald Family, a family band featuring the high-energy fiddling and percussive step dancing of four of Canada’s finest young musicians.
Next will be Dr. John Elliff and the Hoagies on Sunday, Nov. 8 with a repertoire embracing Hoagy Carmichael, Louis Armstrong, Louis Jordan, Nat King Cole and Billie Holiday.
Circus INcognitus is next in line on Thursday, Feb. 18. A natural clown, Jamie Adkins brings his many talents to a new one-man show. Adkins catches grapes on a fork, balances sheets of paper on his nose, pops ping pong balls, walks on ropes and juggles just about everything around him.
Finally on Monday, April 26, Home Free. A perfect fusion of comedy and four-part harmony. Built upon the acoustic beauty of ‘a cappella” singing and combined with one astounding vocal percussionist.
PCAC is a nonprofit group dedicated to supporting the arts in Phillips County. The main sources of income for programming are membership, grants and freewill donations.
Members will also be allowed to attend reciprocating art associations in Ft. Morgan, Burlington, Imperial, North Platte and McCook, Neb. A complete schedule of all concerts is available with a season membership ticket.
