The Lennon Sisters Christmas
Tuesday, December 13, 2016 8:00 PM
Luhrs Performing Arts Center

8:00 PM to 10:30 PM - Luhrs Performing Arts Center: In 1955 four very young girls, Dianne, Peggy, Kathy and Janet Lennon, walked onto the stage at ABC Studios, in Hollywood and sang their way into America's hearts. Their first Christmas appearance on The Lawrence Welk Television Show welcomed them into millions of homes across America where they literally grew up in front of their audience every Saturday for 13 years. That showcase was the beginning of a career which would see them star in their own TV series, sing for seven U. S. Presidents and perform with nearly every major star in Hollywood. The Lennon Sisters recorded over 400 songs and have sold millions of recordings. When Dianne and Peggy retired, their younger sister Mimi joined Kathy and Janet in 1999. This winter we are thrilled that The Lennon Sisters will be bringing their holiday gift of music to the Luhrs Center for a performance during their final tour, filled with their unmistakable harmonies, video highlights of their fabulous career, heartwarming stories, medleys from the past and present, tributes to great performers, many traditional Christmas melodies and so much more.

Seussical
Sunday, January 22, 2017 1:00 PM
Luhrs Performing Arts Center

1:00 PM to 3:30 PM - Luhrs Performing Arts Center: "Oh, the thinks you can think" when Dr. Seuss's best-loved stories collide and cavort in an unforgettable musical caper! Adapted from the Broadway version, this musical adaptation, especially for young audiences, features The Cat in the Hat as the host and emcee (and all-around mischief-maker) in this romp through the Seuss classics. When the sweet, good-natured elephant Horton hears a small cry for help coming from a small speck of dust, he promises to rescue and guard it because "a person's a person, no matter how small." Along the way, Horton meets JoJo, an imaginative young Who from Who-Ville; Miss Gertrude McFuzz, the one-feathered bird; and the amazingly lazy Maysie La Bird. Dr. Seuss's beloved classic characters find themselves intertwined in an incredible crazy-quilt adventure, in which the power of imagination and the most miraculous "think" ever save the day! This program is approximately one hour in length and is appropriate for audiences in grades K-5.
