One of the most explosive movie musicals in recent memory bursts onto the live stage with exhilarating results. When Ren and his mother move from Chicago to a small farming town, Ren is prepared for the inevitable adjustment period at his new high school. What he isn’t prepared for are the rigorous local edicts, including a ban on dancing instituted by the local preacher, determined to exercise the control over the town’s youth that he cannot command in his own home. When the reverend’s rebellious daughter sets her sights on Ren, her roughneck boyfriend tries to sabotage Ren’s reputation, with many of the locals eager to believe the worst about the new kid. The heartfelt story that emerges is of a father longing for the son he lost and of a young man aching for the father who walked out on him. To the rockin’ rhythm of its Oscar and Tony-nominated top 40 score,  FOOTLOOSE is the ultimate 80’s dance musical with a message!

KIRK FRANKLIN: THE LONG LIVE LOVE TOUR @ Au-Rene Theater at The Broward Center for the Performing Arts
Jul 17 @ 7:30 pm

Kirk Franklin is one of the brightest stars in contemporary gospel music. An incomparable artist, speaker, a New York Times best-selling author, businessman and humanitarian, he has spent over 20 years as the top selling artist of inspirational music. A multiple Grammy award winner, Kirk Franklin, shows no signs of slowing down, revolutionizing Gospel Music and bridged the gap between the faith community and mainstream Urban Music culture. Working with such artists as Bono, Stevie Wonder, the late Whitney Houston, Lacrae, Kanye West and Chance the Rapper, the genius fusion of a message hope and hip-hop beats have made him a mainstay atop Billboard charts. With such phenomenal success, it is small wonder that some have hailed him as “the Garth Brooks of gospel.”

Murder for Two @ Actors' Playhouse at the Miracle Theatre
Jul 17 @ 8:00 pm – Aug 11 @ 3:00 pm

Mixing classic musical comedy with a dash of Agatha Christie, everyone is a suspect in this house of eccentric characters unfazed by the dead body on the floor. Murder for Two is a hilarious musical murder mystery with a twist; one actor investigates the crime, the other plays all 13 suspects, and they both play the piano! A zany madcap musical mystery, this 90-minute whodunit is a highly theatrical duet loaded with killer laughs.

Playing July 17 – August 11, 2019

Performances Wednesday – Saturday at 8 p.m., Sunday at 3 p.m.
