Mr. Sipp "The Mississippi Blues Child"

He brought down the house during our Thacker Mountain Radio show with his dynamic and energetic performance earning a standing ovation. We are thrilled to have Mr. Sipp and his band return to entertain us with his unique style of blues music.

Mr. Sipp, the winner of the 2014 International Blues Challenge and the 2014 Gibson Best Guitarist Award, began playing guitar at age 6. Having played gospel for over 20 years, Mr. Sipp decided to try something new and found his calling with the blues in 2009. He has won the hearts of blues fans and won multiple awards with his performances that bring people to their feet and makes them want to dance.

Walter Anderson Players Present
The Addam's Family Musical

The Addam's Family is a smash-hit musical comedy that brings the darkly delirious world of Gomez, Morticia, Uncle Fester, Grandma, Wednesday, Pugsley and, of course, Lurch to spooky and spectacular life. This magnificently macabre new musical comedy is created by Jersey Boys authors Marshall Brickman & Rick Elice, and Drama Desk-winning composer/lyricist Andrew Lippa (The Wild Party).

The Addams Family features an original story, and it’s every father’s nightmare. Wednesday Addams, the ultimate princess of darkness, has grown up and fallen in love with a sweet, smart young man from a respectable family. A man her parents have never met. And if that weren’t upsetting enough, she confides in her father and begs him not to tell her mother. Now, Gomez Addams must do something he’s never done before - keep a secret from his beloved wife, Morticia. Everything will change for the whole family on the fateful night they host a dinner for Wednesday’s “normal” boyfriend and his parents.

Come meet the family. We’ll leave the lights off for you.

Reserved Seating: Adults $20

Vienna Boys' Choir

The Vienna Boys' Choir is a choir of long-standing tradition; it is one of the oldest boys' choirs not attached to a church or a college. It was the choir attached to the Austrian court; its roots go back to the 13th century, but records from the early phases are tenuous and scarce. In the late 15th century, the choir was part of the court music of Maximilian I, the Holy Roman Emperor, who moved the court from Innsbruck to Vienna and thus is credited with the foundation of the Chapel Imperial.

We are so honored to have this historic choir perform in our beautiful theater. Enjoy a night of classical music as performed by these highly talented youths.

Reserved Seating Tickets: $59 for adults & $35 for children (10 and under)
