Returning and new performances include Manhattan Transfer, Kylie Frey, Christmas on Ice
The Holland Theatre is excited to announce its Holland Presents 2023-24 Season – “LOVE IT LIVE!”
The season kicks off with “Remembering Red – A Tribute to Red Skelton” on Sept. 16, and includes legends like The Manhattan Transfer on their final world tour; rising country star Kylie Frey with local bass player Jesse Jervis (see related story about their America’s Got Talent debut in Tuesday’s paper); and a return of Irish supergroup Lunasa.
Other highlights include family-friendly events new to the Holland stage, such as Christmas Celebration on Ice, The Great Dubois circus, Magic of Kevin Spencer — a sensory inclusive event, and America’s Got Talent-famous illusionist Chris Funk.
Continuing are the annual free concerts from West Central Ohio Community Concert Band, and new this year are free movies for Halloween and Valentine’s Day.
Windmill Productions will bring local talent to the stage with an Edgar Allan Poe reader’s theater, Disney favorite “Moana Jr.”, the groundbreaking play “Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner,” and beloved classic “My Fair Lady.”
“There is something for everyone this season — country, rock, jazz, pop, bluegrass, theater, circus and more. Additional events will be added throughout the season,” said Greg Titus, Holland Theatre executive director. “We also continue to expand our youth outreach program in our local schools.”
