Our hearts go out to those who are still dealing with challenges. We are asking that each patron bring a donation of canned goods, non-perishable food items or a new, unwrapped toy to every performance. These donations will be distributed to members of the community who are still struggling.
We continue our concert series welcoming The Atlantic City Blues Brothers Tribute Band to our stage on Jan. 6, 7 and 8. Direct from Atlantic City’s Boardwalk Showroom, starring Cooper Jordan (Creator/Elwood), Nathan Olmedia (Jake) and directed by two-time Tony nominated Broadway producer, Stephanie Rosenberg this is a tribute show not to be missed. They’ll get the joint jumping with all the hits you know and love, including “Somebody to Love,” “Goin’ Back to Miami,” “Soul Man,” “Sweet Home Chicago” and many more.
