Small-town America brings nationally-known performers to a historic theatre
The Lancaster Grand Theatre announces its inaugural season for 2013-2014. The Lancaster Grand Theatre opened its doors in 1925 and quickly became a Central Kentucky landmark. With the completion of a $4.2 million restoration that was almost 12 years in the making, The Lancaster Grand will again host outstanding entertainment for citizens of the region after being closed for almost 50 years. The theatre is located at 117 Lexington Street in Lancaster.
The ever-popular Glenn Miller Orchestra and the classic rock of the Coasters and Platters highlight the upcoming opening season. The schedule also features a variety of international dance with Rhythm of the Dance from Ireland and from Russia, the Rudolf Nureyev State Ballet Theatre’s production of The Nutcracker. The international flavor continues with the celtic vocals of the Women of Ireland and the amazing acrobatics of a cirque favorite, Cirque d’ Or.
From Kentucky comes Lee Cruise’s Kentucky Comedy Tour and The Boxcars with Special Guest J.D. Crowe, the legendary Bluegrass banjo player. Kentuckians will also identify with The Sixth Man: Rise of a Big Blue Nation, the touching and dramatic documentary on the fans of University of Kentucky basketball. The holiday season will be brighter, too, with a fully-staged performance of the timeless classic musical, A Christmas Carol.
Children’s school performances are also a special component of the Lancaster Grand’s inaugural season and will target area school children daytime performances of Cirque d ‘Or, Riders in the Sky, Junie B. Jones, Rhythm of the Dance, and A Christmas Carol at discounted student pricing.
