The Four Freshmen
October 09, 2016
Doors open @ 6:30pm
Show starts @ 7:30pm
Tickets are $36 - $42, click below link to purchase tickets

The Four Freshmen have been delighting audiences for almost seventy years. Their longevity is due to the quality of their music and arrangements of The Great American Songbook, the uniqueness of their sound, exciting performances that keep the material new, their strong musicianship and the fact that they keep recruiting fresh youthful talent.
They’ve won JazzTimes and DownBeat Magazine’s Readers Poll for Best Vocal Group. They have over 50 albums, 70 top-selling singles, six Grammy nominations and an enthusiastic active fan club called The Four Freshmen Society.
The Four Freshmen harmony has influenced and inspired many groups that followed including The Mamas and the Papas and Manhattan Transfer. Brian Wilson credits them with inspiring the Beach Boys and said, “I have loved the Freshmen harmony since the first time I heard them. They are my favorite band to watch perform live.”

Rating: R (for sexual material, full frontal nudity, language throughout, and drug and alcohol content)
Genre: Comedy
Runtime: 101 minutes

In this new comedy from the grateful husbands and devoted fathers who wrote The Hangover, Amy has a seemingly perfect life--a great marriage, over-achieving kids, beautiful home and a career. However she's over-worked, over-committed and exhausted to the point that she's about to snap. Fed up, she joins forces with two other over-stressed moms on a quest to liberate themselves from conventional responsibilities--going on a wild, un-mom-like binge of long overdue freedom, fun and self-indulgence--putting them on a collision course with PTA Queen Bee Gwendolyn and her clique of devoted perfect moms.

The third in director Sam Raimi's stylish, comic book-like horror trilogy that began with The Evil Dead (1982), this tongue-in-cheek sequel offers equal parts sword-and-sorcery-style action, gore, and comedy. Bruce Campbell returns as the one-armed Ash, now a supermarket employee ("Shop Smart...Shop S-Mart") who is transported by the powers of a mysterious book back in time with his Oldsmobile '88 to the 14th century medieval era. Armed only with a shotgun, his high school chemistry textbook, and a chainsaw that mounts where his missing appendage once resided.

Unlike any Beatles tribute band you’ve ever seen, Doctor Robert marks a new generation of tribute bands, bringing a thoroughly modern sound and feel to the Fab Four’s classics. The band is quickly becoming respected for its extended, high-energy sets including everything from “Please Please Me” to “Abbey Road,” and because no two shows are ever the same. Dressed in mod-Beatles circa 1964, Doctor Robert relishes the challenge of recreating even the most demanding musical compositions in a live setting, often improvising during the performance. Like the quintessential Beatles tribute band, The Fab Faux, Doctor Robert does not attempt to impersonate the Beatles. For Ben Wright, Karen Janssen, Casey Falter, and Kevin Reinert, it’s all about the music and the infectious energy created when Beatles fans come together.

Thanks to the carelessness of a cute little dog, newlyweds Geena Davis and Alec Baldwin are killed in a freak auto accident. Upon arriving in the outer offices of Heaven, the couple finds that, thanks to a century's worth of bureaucratic red tape, they're on a long celestial waiting list. Before they can earn their wings, Davis and Baldwin must occupy their old house as ghosts for the next fifty years. Alas, the house is now owned by insufferable yuppies Catherine O'Hara and Jeffrey Jones. Horrified at the prospect of sharing space with these obnoxious interlopers, Davis and Baldwin do their best to scare O'Hara and Jones.
