March 19th (7:30pm): Dan Rather – Those who hear Dan Rather speak often say that he is one of the most extraordinary communicators of our time. With more than 60 years spent chronicling our world and nation, few can match the authority, experience, and perspective that the famed newsman brings to almost any subject. With a career that began in radio and is currently shaping news coverage in social media and beyond, Dan Rather has earned his place as one of the world’s most influential and respected journalists. During 44 years at CBS, including 24 years as anchor of the “CBS Evening News,” he interviewed every president since Eisenhower and personally covered history-making events. He is the recipient of virtually every honor in broadcast journalism, including numerous Emmy® Awards, several Peabody Awards and the 2012 Edward R. Murrow Lifetime Achievement Award.

April 9th (7:30pm): “Finding Neverland” – A breathtaking smash, based on the critically-acclaimed Academy Award-® winning film, “Finding Neverland” tells the incredible story behind one of the world’s most beloved characters: Peter Pan. Playwright J.M. Barrie struggles to find inspiration until he meets four young brothers and their beautiful widowed mother. Spellbound by the boys’ enchanting make-believe adventures, he sets out to write a play that will astound London theatergoers. With a little bit of pixie dust and a lot of faith, Barrie leaves his old world behind for Neverland. The magic of Barrie’s classic tale springs spectacularly to life in this heartwarming theatrical event. Public sales start March 4th. Tickets are $37-$77.
