Another chance at love!

Our Valentine's day party last year was such a hit we're bringing it back for another year and we're also bringing back David Slater to perform once again because of your comments.  Singing all the classics from the great American songbook David put on quite a show last year and he's ready to fly up from Dallas again to entertain here at the Center.  For those not here last year David Slater is considered one of the country's top Cabaret  entertainers.  With his smooth voice and effortless style he glides through many of the great songs made popular by Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Perry Como and others.  

Now combine David with a great atmosphere, good food and plenty of friends and you have an evening to remember for you and your Valentine partner.  No partner?  Don't let that deter you.  Just show up with friends and have a good time.  

This year the Center will be presenting a fabulous dessert presentation for your enjoyment while you party, drink and dance.

Twelve Number One country Billboard hits and counting!

With the recent release of Jason Aldean’s hit “1994” that name-checked many of Joe Diffie’s twelve Number One hits, the legendary singer found himself squarely back in the hearts and minds of country fans. The multi-platinum-selling artist has never slowed down – writing, touring and recording a myriad of projects including his critically acclaimed 2010 bluegrass album “Homecoming,” and his upcoming ”Country Unplugged” acoustic tour with fellow hit makers Mark Chesnutt and Lorrie Morgan. The video for his most recent single “Girl Ridin’ Shotgun,” which features cameo appearances from such superstars as Blake Shelton, Brad Paisley, Toby Keith, Lee Brice, Tim McGraw, and Keith Urban has amassed well over 7 million views on Youtube.

With chart-toppers like “Pickup Man,” “Third Rock from the Sun,” and “John Deere Green,” and 13 albums and over 20 Top 10 singles to his credit, Joe has little to prove at this point in his career, yet he still has a fire in his belly to make good country music. A renowned songwriter in his own right, Joe has hits for artists like Tim McGraw, Conway Twitty, and Jo Dee Messina to his credit

Neil Simon's Favorite with a twist!

All the fun and laughs just a different gender.  After the great success of his original buddy comedy the show was adapted and re-shaped with a women's perspective.  No poker game this time, let's try Trivial Pursuit.  Think of the opportunities for jokes with that game.  Featuring an outstanding cast of local actors this Civic Center production promises all the fun, snark and laughs of the original.

Date: May 10 and 11
Time: 7:30 PM
Tickets: TBA
