Get ready for big bands, belly laughs and sights that defy description. This fall, Yavapai College Performing Arts Center offers a little bit of each to launch its 2017-18 season. Couples – young and old – as well as families and music lovers will find plenty to get excited about in Prescott’s most gorgeous performance facility.
The fun starts August 26, with swing and sass from some of the finest cats in jazz. The Prescott Jazz Summit All-Star Big Band gathers legendary musicians from around United States for an energetic, big band extravaganza.
What do you get when you combine theatre, stand-up and a popular book about men and women? One of the best date nights ever! On Friday night, September 8, Men are from Mars/Women are from Venus, adapts John Gray’s classic bestseller into insightful, hysterical vignettes that cover dating, marriage, the bedroom and beyond.
Then, bring the kids September 22 for a mind-blowing, action-packed spectacular. The Magic of Bill Blagg Live! is an interactive tour-de-force of jaw-dropping illusions that will have your entire family saying, “How did he do that?” all the way home.
The Prescott Jazz Summit, Bill Blagg Live! and Men are from Mars mark the start of a YCPAC season that will feature artists like The Texas Tenors, Celtic Fire and Garrison Keillor in 2018. The full season will be announced this summer. Please contact the YCPAC Box Office, 1100 East Sheldon Street, call 928-776-2000 or visit www.ycpac.com to learn more.
