December is full of one-of-a-kind performances that you can only see at the Clermont Performing Arts Center!
Thursday, Dec. 12 Emmy and Peabody Award winner, Charlie Grinker, hosts “You Are There Too!” Each month Grinker shares his rare videos and personal anecdotes gained during his decades interviewing hundreds of top celebrities. The December session is entitled “They Died Too Young.”
When a talented artist’s flame extinguishes too soon, the loss resonates forever. Grinker revisits the extraordinary lives and talents of some of history’s legendary figures who died young, including: Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, John Lennon, Vincent Van Gogh, Jimmy Dean, George Gershwin, Patsy Cline, Carole Lombard, Elvis Presley, Jimi Hendrix, John Belushi, Chris Farley, Gilda Radner, Ernie Kovacs and Andy Kaufman, Marilyn Monroe and Princess Diana.
The show starts at 2:00 p.m. in the Black Box Theater and tickets are $10.75.
“Let’s Get Rockin!” comes to the Black Box Theater on Friday, Dec. 13. This unique karaoke show features a live band similar to Rising Star at City Walk. Audience members are encouraged to join the band to sing and even play instruments that are provided. With props, costumes and karaoke, it’s like the popular video game Rock Band come to life! The Let’s Get Rockin’ band members play and sing along, which allows participants to be part of the performance, while ensuring that the dance floor stays packed and everyone at the event has a rockin’ good time.
The show starts at 8:00 p.m. and tickets are $15.
Experience Christmas with a Celtic Twist on Saturday, Dec. 21 when Emmy Award-winner Michael Londra, the voice of Riverdance on Broadway, brings his “Celtic Yuletide” to the Clermont Mainstage.
Take a musical journey through Ireland, told through song, dance and the festive stories from Londra’s youth. The holiday-inspired production combines traditional carols, such as “Silent Night” and “First Noel,” with new holiday songs, like “Beyond the Star” and features dancers from “Riverdance” and “Lord of the Dance.”
This one-of-a-kind performance is perfect for the entire family and will make this a holiday you’ll never forget.
The show starts at 7:30 p.m. on the Mainstage.
