HOUGHTON, Michigan (August 20, 2014) – Rozsa Center for the Performing Arts’ 2014-2015 season will bring world-class entertainment to Michigan Technological University’s campus in Houghton. The season includes 24 performances, encompassing film, lectures, music, theater, dance, opera and more. From Broadway and ballet to a cappella and jazz, the Rozsa has programming for all tastes and all ages. The season even includes a unique opportunity for a local student to perform alongside professional actors. Flexible season ticket packages are on sale now through August 31. To help patrons keep track of 2014-2015 season events, Rozsa is bringing back its full-color wall calendar, which lists events taking place each month. The calendar will be mailed to season subscribers and local businesses. The general public can pick one up at the Rozsa Center or call 906-487-2073 for distribution locations.
The Rozsa’s 2014-2015 season highlights include a return of the Russian National Ballet Theatre’s Swan Lake and a reimagining of the beloved Lerner and Loewe Broadway musical, Camelot. Set to the hauntingly beautiful Tchaikovsky score, Swan Lake tells the classic tale of Odette, a beautiful maiden transformed into a swan by an evil knight. Featuring a darker, grittier Sir Lancelot, the four-time Tony Award-winning Camelot tells the fabled story of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table. Local male students in grades elementary to middle school will be invited to audition for the featured role of Tom of Warwick in Camelot. Stay tuned for details about this exciting opportunity.
The Rozsa’s 2014-2015 season will have plenty of fun family entertainment, including The Very Hungry Caterpillar and the ever-popular Rainforest Reptile Show for younger audiences. The Rozsa Center also offers two unique programs designed to engage area high school and elementary students in the arts. Class Acts Extra Credit is geared toward high school students who can earn extra credit for attending a show for $1.00. Class Acts offers shows for all ages and interests. For more information about Class Acts, ask your child’s teacher, or call the Rosza Center.
