ALAN CUMMING

Legal Immigrant

Friday, May 11@ 8PMRiders in the Sky

Alan Cumming was described by Time Magazine as one of the most fun people in show business, by the New York Times as a ‘bawdy, countercultural sprite’ and the New York Observer as a ‘frolicky pansexual sex symbol for the new millenium’. But he thinks you shouldn’t believe everything you read. He became an American citizen in 2008 and Legal Immigrant is a cabaret of songs and stories about his life and loves in his adopted homeland.

He has performed with Jay Z and Liza with a Z; he has won a Tony, hosted the Tonys and been nominated for an Emmy for doing so; he has a soap called Cumming In A Bar, and a bar called Club Cumming; he made back to back films with Stanley Kubrick and the Spice Girls; he has played God, the Devil, Hitler, the Pope, a teleporting superhero, all the parts in Macbeth, General Batista of Cuba, a goat opposite Sean Connery, Dionysus, a Smurf (twice) the EmCee in Cabaret (thrice), a James Bond baddie - oh, and political spinmeister Eli Gold on seven seasons of The Good Wife for which he received multiple Golden Globe, Emmy and SAG award nominations; he is the author of five books including a #1 New York Times best-selling memoir; he appeared on Sesame Street, Dora the Explorer, topless in Playgirl and naked on the cover of his second album.

Alan Cumming is many things to many people - renaissance man, style icon, social activist, bon viveur - but to himself he is a story-teller and provocateur for hire.

*The Salina Community Theatre will be hosting a fun Q & A with Alan Cumming on Thursday, May 10 @ 7pm. This event is free (as long as you have purchased a ticket to Friday’s show at the Stiefel! You must present it at the door.) This is also limited to the first 150 people to call the Stiefel or Community Theatre to register. Our thanks to Michael Spicer and the tremendous Salina Community Theatre for their support and enthusiasm for this show.

USD 305 LIVE featuring
JOE'S PET PROJECT

Wednesday, May 23@ 7PMRiders in the Sky

The Salina Education Foundation is thrilled to announce that it is bringing back 305 LIVE, a collaboration between the rock band, Joe’s Pet Project, and the students and faculty of USD 305.  This will be the fourth time the concert has been presented, and this year the Ed Foundation will again partner with the Stiefel Theatre to give students and audience members a professional rock performance experience.

Joe’s Pet Project is a five-member rock group, all of whom graduated from Salina Public Schools.  They have performed at the Smoky Hill River Festival, Ad Astra and Rolling Hills Zoo, to name a few local venues.  Nathan Tysen, award-winning Broadway Lyricist, whose plays Tuck Everlasting and Amelie opened on Broadway, and Ryan McCall, musical director at the University of Kansas, will teach a master class in songwriting. Ten students from each middle and high school will be taught the basics of songwriting by dissecting a few rock and roll hits and examining their structure. After learning the basics, participants will collectively write a song with the band that will be premiered at the 305 LIVE concert on May 23.  In addition to the original song, middle and high school students will be involved in all technical and performance aspects of producing a rock concert. 

New this year!  At guests’ requests, all seats will be reserved.

AL STEWART

Classic Album Concert - Year of the Cat

Saturday, June 2 @ 8PMAl Stewart

Year Of The Cat – A Classic Album Live! – Al Stewart and a full backing band, The Empty Pockets, recreate the iconic platinum album “Year Of The Cat” from start to finish, plus a bonus set of the many hits from his other albums including the platinum-selling “Time Passages.” This show sold out two days at London’s Royal Albert Hall and is selling out theaters across North America.

Al Stewart came to stardom as part of the legendary British folk revival in the sixties and seventies and developed the combination of folk-rock songs with delicately woven tales of the great characters and events from history. Stewart has 19 studio albums between “Bedsitter Images” in 1967 and “Sparks of Ancient Light” in 2008, plus the live album "Uncorked" with Dave Nachmanoff in 2009. Al continues to tour extensively around the U.S. and Europe. He is perhaps best known for his hits ‘Year of the Cat” from the Platinum album of the same name and the Platinum follow up album “Time Passages.” But his career spans four decades as a key figure in British music. He played at the first ever Glastonbury Festival in 1970, worked with Yoko Ono pre-Lennon and shared a London apartment with a young Paul Simon.

THE AVETT BROTHERS

SOLD OUT

Wednesday, June 27 @ 8PM 3 Doors Down

When you're receptive to the forces around you, you'll notice there's something powerful in the air. It's that feeling of inspiration to which The Avett Brothers consistently remain open." It's a spirit that courses through everything that they do. You could call it a "creative lifeblood" or a "muse", but it's ultimately indefinable. However, you can hear it and feel it within 2013's Magpie and the Dandelion. Recorded immediately after The Carpenter with Rick Rubin (marking their third consecutive team-up in the studio with the iconic producer), the North Carolina quartet—Seth Avett, Scott Avett, Bob Crawford, and Joe Kwon—rode a creative wave that yielded another ponderous, poetic, and passionate collection on the heels of their most successful set to date, no less. Their eighth studio album went on to debut at #5 on the Billboard Top 200. A string of sold out shows followed as the boys continued to dream up their next step. Much like their own music, it promises to continue tradition, while making a decidedly personal statement. If you keep your eyes, mind, and heart open, you'll undoubtedly feel it.

It's been over nineteen years since these humble beginnings.
