Jay Psaros (folk/pop)

The combination of rootsy acoustic picking and alt. rock jamming displays the versatility of Jay as a songwriter and musician as a whole. Recently, Jay has just come home from almost four months on tour supporting the release of his latest album “On Up the Road,” which is a “more polished roots-based dragnet of various Americana music genres than his debut.” The sound is “eclectic, sometimes poppy and downright danceable.”

The Velveteen Rabbit

The classic tale of the stuffed rabbit who longs to become real comes to life for a whole new generation in this delightful production. Just as the velveteen rabbit becomes real, the audience's imagination converts three actors and their simple props into a wise old rocking horse, a cavalcade of mechanical playthings, a kind-hearted fairy, and of course, a stuffed rabbit who is transformed by the love of a young boy. The Velveteen Rabbit is a joyous testament to the wonder of a child's imagination.

Boyz II Men

Four time Grammy® Award-winning group Boyz II Men—Wanya Morris, Nate Morris and Shawn Stockman bring their distinctive individual voices and peerless harmonies to songs made famous by Bonnie Raitt, The Manhattans, Journey, The Spinners, Sam Cooke, the Beatles, and Cyndi Lauper. Boyz II Men weave these diverse selections together into an album-length symphony, one that flows seamlessly from an impassioned “I Can’t Make You Love Me” through the shimmering a cappella sound of “Time After Time” to “When I Fall In Love,” a beautiful reworking of a great American standard.
