ArtsPower’s under-the-sea musical tells the story of Nugget, a minnow, and Fang, a shark, who get along swimmingly — until Nugget’s first day of minnow school. There, Nugget learns that minnows are supposed to be afraid of sharks! To regain Nugget’s trust, Fang takes desperate and hilarious measures. Nothing goes as planned. Fang is moping in deep
waters when he notices that Nugget and his minnow schoolmates are caught up in some big trouble (and one very big net). Holy mackerel! Can Fang save the day and prove he is a true friend?

Laith Al-Saadi has always had the perfect combination of Midwestern hustle and incredible musical chops – honed at the University of Michigan school of music in his hometown of Ann Arbor and on stages across the country working with legends like Taj Mahal, Luther Allison, Buddy Guy, Son Seals, Gregg Allman and B.B. King.

“Laith is one of the most diverse talents we have,” said Maroon 5 frontman and “The Voice” coach Adam Levine. “Incredible guitar player, incredible singer.”

January

From the group that brought you the Zeppelin, Beatles and the Pink Floyd Tribute
Classic Albums Live Presents: The Eagles – Hotel California

Classic Albums LiveSaturday, January 19 / 7:30 p.m.
LA-Z-BOY CENTER, MEYER THEATER
RESERVED SEATING:  $27
VIP Seating $37*


The Eagles’ legendary album, “Hotel California,” comes to life when Classic Albums Live performs the album in its entirety, note for note, cut for cut.

Musician Craig Martin founded this acclaimed, Toronto-based concert series in 2003 in which different groups of musicians reproduce every sound heard on the original album. “Classic Albums Live,” he says, “is simple in its quest: note for note - cut for cut. When you have amazing songs, a perfect album and a deep love of music – there’s nothing else needed. ‘Hotel California’ features Classic Albums Live at its best.”

Featuring massive hits like “New Kid in Town,” “Life in the Fast Lane” and the title song, “Hotel California” was one of the
biggest-selling albums of the 1970s and the most popular (non-compilation) Eagles album. “The deep cuts – the ones that don’t get radio play – those are the ones that are like finding gold on a beach,” said Martin.

*VIP Seating includes balcony seating, munchies and cash bar.

Drew HastingsDrew Hastings
Saturday, February 2 / 7:30 p.m.
LA-Z-BOY CENTER, MEYER THEATER
RESERVED SEATING: $17.00
VIP SEATING:  $27.00*



As a comedian, Drew Hastings has been a well-known standup for 20-plus years, doing comedy specials, “Tonight Show” appearances and regular guest segments on the national “Bob & Tom Show.”

Once a loft living, city dweller, he left Los Angeles at age 50 to take up farming in rural Ohio where he has a cow/calf operation. He now shares the very funny tales to go with it. In addition, he was re-elected to his second term as mayor in the rural city of Hillsboro, Ohio, where his politically incorrect candor is often controversial but usually well received.

Drew Hastings is the most unlikely farmer and mayor you have ever met!

*VIP Seating includes balcony seating, munchies and cash bar.

LA-Z-BOY CENTER, MEYER THEATER
RESERVED SEATING:  $20*
VIP SEATING:  $30*

If you love the indulgence and insanity of Mardi Gras but can’t make it down to Louisiana, then join us on Saturday, March 2 for one of the most exciting events of the year. Let the good times roll with a pre-party in the atrium at 5 p.m. that will feature yummy food, Mardi Gras cocktails, festive dance, wild décor and jazzy jams by the funky and fun Atlas Jazz. Then, dance your way into the Meyer Theater at 7:30 p.m. for the headline performance by Vaud and the Villains. Then, wrap up your evening with another hour of music, drink and fun back in the atrium!

Vaud and the Villains was born out of whimsical dreams, glitter and boa feathers. The big show has an orchestra and cabaret and has evolved over the years from a folk band singing traditional tunes to an originally voiced, genre-bending spectacle commonly described as Americana Noir meets Moulin Rouge. It is seedy and inspiring yet gritty and sublime. Bring your wretched souls, your sins and your dancing feet – they will save you and you will never be the same!

Amber Brown is having what may be the worst year of her life. She and Justin Daniels were the perfect team: they laughed at each other’s jokes, sat next to each other in class and stayed best friends when Justin’s dad had to move away. Now things are different. Now, Justin’s house has been sold and he is going to Alabama; that is too far from New Jersey to think about.

ArtsPower’s uniquely funny and forthright musical portrays a feisty young girl who refuses to let her problems get the better of her. You will laugh and cry with Amber as she learns some valuable lessons about the virtues of patience and the meaning of forgiveness
