Festival 56 will be kicking off their 2021 summer season with a fun-filled night of music and entertainment at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, June 17.
The Opening Cabaret will feature a number of artists from all over the country, while also giving audiences insight to what talent, creativity, and artistry will be in-store this summer. It will also include a sample from each of the productions that will be presented as part of Festival 56′s summer season: Polkadots: the Cool Kids Musical, Romeo & Juliet, and Godspell.
This event is a reason to celebrate for Festival 56, in that it is the first time audiences and performers will be able to share the same space for nearly two years, a milestone that has been long-awaited since the company’s last live performances in 2019.
Different from years past, all of Festival 56′s performances will be held on an outdoor stage behind the Bureau County Metro Center in order to ensure the health and safety of all artists and patrons. Concessions will be available for all to enjoy, but audience members may wish to bring their own lawn chair, bug spray, or sunscreen.
Tickets to the cabaret are $8 in advance or $10 at the door. For more information or to purchase tickets, call or visit the box office from 12-5 p.m. Monday-Saturday at the Grace Theater, 316 S. Main St., Princeton, 815-879-5656, or visit www.festival 56.com.
