February is full of one-of-a-kind performances that you can only see at the Clermont Performing Arts Center!
The month opens with “The Pirates of Penzance” a comic opera in two acts. The music was written by Arthur Sullivan and the libretto was created by W.S. Gilbert. The popular opera has been a hit with audiences and critics since its New York debut in 1879.
“Pirates” will be performed by the prestigious New York Gilbert and Sullivan Players, a professional repertory company under the direction of artistic director Albert Bergeret. The production includes a cast of 23 members and a 17-piece orchestra.
The show will take place on Feb. 8 beginning at 4 p.m. on the Mainstage. Tickets can be purchased on CPAC’s website or through the box office.
Take a trip down memory lane with “You Are There, Too!” Emmy and Peabody Award-winner Charlie Grinker presents his latest installment in the series, “Superstars of Sports, Up Close and Personal.”
On the field or in the ring, they appear superhuman. But out of the public view, what are the superstars of sports really like? Grinker mines his vault of rare film to share his award-winning interviews with these sports stars.
Get up close and personal as you’ve never been before with moments such as:
- Mickey Mantle explains that as he watched American astronauts landing on the moon, he wished he had been there to see how far he could hit a baseball in outer space.
- Muhammad Ali explains his dismay when he orders his favorite ice cream cone and complains because the chocolate scoop is always on the bottom.
- Babe Ruth takes us inside his gym to show off the exercise program that enables him to stay in shape, even after a lunch of five hot dogs and a couple of beers.
The show will take place on Feb. 13 beginning at 2 p.m. in the Black Box Theater. Tickets can be purchased on CPAC’s website or through the box office.
Spend Valentine’s Day laughing with the one you love at Friday Night at the Black Box. Ron Feingold headlines this month and is joined by Austin Mann and Big Biker George. The show starts at 8 p.m. on Feb. 14. Tickets can be purchased on CPAC’s website or through the box office.
Back by popular demand, Mutts Gone Nuts, a smash hit featuring 10 of the world’s most talented four-legged performers and their equally-talented trainers.
Scott and Joan Houghton unleash their hilarious pooches, including Guinness World Record Holders: Feather, the world’s highest-jumping dog, and Geronimo, who holds the record for jumping rope.
All the canines in this action-packed thrill show are from rescue shelters, adding to the endearing quality of this family-friendly show.
The show will take place on Feb. 22 beginning at 7:30 p.m. on the Mainstage. Tickets can be purchased on CPAC’s website or through the box office.
