The Rogers Center 2016-17 Season, on sale now!
What can you expect this season at the Rogers Center for the Arts? Featuring 25 major productions, 16 films, a dozen art exhibits, 18 additional mid-week concerts, and more as of yet un-announced events, you can expect something for everyone! Highlights from the professional offerings include the wildly entertaining Internationally acclaimed theatrical experience The Intergalactic Nemesis: Target Earth – A Live Action Graphic Novel. “I’ve never been a part of a show that people seem to love so much,” says creator Jason Neulander. “They laugh, clap, and cheer through much of the show and then after we actually get to meet them because we sign the books after every performance. So we get to chat with folks who have absolutely had the time of their lives.” Part Flash Gordon, part Casablanca, this live radio show – graphic novel mash up is a one of a kind sensation that has audiences from all generations riveted! In addition, theatrical offerings include the New England premier of Creature: A spooky comedy by Heidi Schreck, two musical comedies: I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change and the classic My Fair Lady, and two edgier comedies The Santaland Diaries and Dog Sees God: Confessions of a Teenaged Blockhead.
Musical offerings include performances by Boston Brass (And the nominees are … ) , The Renaissance Men (Christmas Past/Christmas Present), the international a cappella sensation Women of the World with Boston Jazz Voices, Jazz fusion master Mark Zaleski and his band, members of the Boston Symphony Orchestra with Hugh Hinton, and the ever popular Tony Kenny (Tony Kenny’s Irish Celebration). And for Family Friendly fare with both local and international flairs we proudly offer Puppet Showplace Theatre in October and two different shows by the Cashore Marionettes: Life in Motion and Simple Gifts.
The Tambakos Film Series opens on September 7 with the classic Rebel Without a Cause, followed up by 15 other brilliant offerings. This free series includes a pre-screening conversation with faculty and guest speakers.
