This year’s Cultural Series brings Diverse Shows for Diverse Audiences to our beautiful Etherredge Center stage.
Following in the footsteps of previous family shows like “Artrageous” and the “Queen’s Cartoonists,” we kick off our season with a performance for all kids, from 1-92! Vocal Trash, performing on October 23, has been described as “Glee meets Stomp,” and has energized audiences from New York to Seattle to Las Vegas to Beijing.
November 15 brings a taste of New Orleans to Aiken, with the world-famous Preservation Hall Jazz Band. Coming to us live from the venue that gave the band its name, they have “held the torch of New Orleans music aloft for over 50 years” with the vibrant sounds of the French Quarter.
Moving into the new year, the award-winning Aquila Theatre company returns to Aiken with their production of Julius Caesar. In this striking new production, Shakespeare’s tense political thriller jumps off the stage.
On February 17, join us for one of the most incredible—and incredibly talented—trios you’ve ever seen or heard. Empire Wild features three classically-trained musicians exploring the fusion of classical, Broadway, pop, and folk music.
On March 30, we conclude our season with African Soul International. Founded in 1998, this group has toured the world, performing with and for some of the biggest names in entertainment, politics, and more. With traditional African drumming and dance, they have brought the joy of African performance culture to over 100,000 people.
