The city of Marshall has announced its performing arts season schedule for the Memorial City Hall Performance Center.
The premier season will run from October to April and features a variety of acts for all ages, from boogie-woogie blues to Texas-legend country music to classic rock ‘n’ roll and much more.
Marcia Ball will serve as the opening act Oct. 26 to officially open Memorial City Hall Performance Center, a restored 552-seat auditorium with professional sound, recording, video and new seating.
Ball, the 2018 Texas State Musician of The Year, has won worldwide fame and fans for her ability to ignite a full-scale roadhouse rhythm and blues party every time she takes the stage.
Other acts scheduled to perform during the premier season of Memorial City Hall Performance Center are:
Nov. 9: Gary P. Nunn, a nationally-known Texas country artist
Dec. 19: Celtic Angels Christmas, an Irish vocal quintet group featuring a true celebration of Christmas in Ireland
Jan. 24: Farewell Angelina, an all-female country group featuring a blend of harmonies over blazing double violins and guitars
Feb. 15: One Night in Memphis, a tribute band to legendary Sun Records recording artists Carl Perkins, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis and Elvis
March 20: Aquila Theatre: 1984 will feature a group of performers that will bring “1984,” George Orwell’s cautionary novel to the stage
April 17: “The Wonder Bread Years,” a fresh and funny salute to Americana, will feature a fast paced, hilarious production that gracefully walks the line between stand up and theater.
“I think we’ve put together an outstanding line up for our inaugural performing arts season that will appeal to all ages and styles,” said Memorial City Hall Performance Center Manager Glenn Barnhart. “We wanted a diverse set of acts and I believe we have delivered on that front — you have musical acts, theatrical productions, a comedy show — so there are things that will appeal to everyone.”
The inaugural performing arts season is presented in association with the Marshall News Messenger and KMHT Radio. Single-ticket sales for all shows are taking place.
