The season begins Sunday, Oct. 28, at 4 p.m. with “Yesterday and Today: The Interactive Beatles Experience.” Do you have a favorite Beatles song? Share that with the McGuigan brothers, and your song could be selected for the concert set list.
The Performing Arts Series continues Sunday, Dec. 2, at 4 p.m. with Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol.” With 26 beloved Christmas carols, a cast of 20, and beautiful sets and costumes, “A Christmas Carol” is the perfect way to ring in the holiday season without the big city traffic. Audience members are invited to participate in a toy drive accompanying the show that will benefit CASA for Kids of South Central Texas.
At 4 p.m. on Feb. 24, Blinn brings “Second City: Made in America (Some Assembly Required)” to Brenham audiences. The Second City celebrates what makes America tick in a hilarious revue that is always fast, fresh, and spectacularly funny. See the troupe that has launched the careers of comedy’s best and brightest, such as Bill Murray, Stephen Colbert, and Tina Fey.
The Performing Arts Series will conclude with “The Doo Wop Project” on Sunday, March 31, at 4 p.m. The stars from Broadway’s smash hits “Jersey Boys” and “Motown: The Musical” recreate ’50s and ’60s favorites and “re-doo” contemporary pop hits by stars like Jason Mraz, Adele, and Maroon 5.
In addition to providing incredible entertainment, Blinn’s Performing Arts Series also is a unique academic program. At Blinn, theatre students serve as the “local crew,” filling roles such as stagehand, deck electrician, followspot operator, wardrobe assistant, audio technician, and countless other stage-related jobs, and are responsible for running much of the show in partnership with tour artists and crew under the supervision of Blinn Technical Theatre Arts Director Kevin Patrick.
