Alexa Rose Trio in Concert

Alexa Rose Trio in Concert

Saturday, January 26th, 2019 – 7:30 pm - Saturday, January 26th, 2019 – 9:00 pm

Historic Masonic Theatre and Masonic Amphitheatre
510 Main Street
Clifton Forge, VA  24422 Map

ALEXA ROSE Trio
Saturday, January 26, 2019, at 7:30pm
In the John E. Hillert Auditorium
Tickets: Main Orchestra: $20; Rear Orchestra and Front Balcony: $17; Rear Balcony: $15; Box Seats: $30.

Alexa Rose has the rare ability to find strikingly original melodies that nevertheless sound like they must have existed for a long time, stored away maybe in the ether of creativity, self-evident and awaiting discovery. Moving deftly between complex dexterity and heart-tugging familiarity, Rose achieves a sound that pushes gently alongside the bright vocal experimentalism of Joni Mitchell and Joanna Newsom while maintaining the brassy attitude and simple refrains that run straight through American roots music from mountain ballads to rock n roll.

Rose spent her formative years curating original music in the Blue Ridge, including Covington, releasing two albums in her early twenties. You can often catch her sporting her dusty Frye boots in some southern lagoon, or on the regional radio stations that spin her latest full-length release, "Low and Lonesome." Written on a hand me down guitar from her mother, the title track is a toast to Rose's heritage, and its anthem-like chorus haunts the listener with a somberness evocative of Gillian Welch.

Church Basement Ladies: Rise Up O Men

Church Basement Ladies: Rise Up O Men
Sunday, March 10 at 2 PM
in the John E. Hillert Auditorium
Tickets: Adult: $37; Senior (55+): $35; Box Seats: $50; Groups of 8 or more save 10%

MEN IN THE PARISH BASEMENT?
WHAT’S A CHURCH LADY TO DO?

Find out when the talented touring company of actors stops in Clifton Forge for an afternoon of theatrical high-jinx.

“Rise Up O Men” gives the gents a chance to shine in the latest installment of the Church Basement Ladies musical comedy series.

This sidesplitting, uplifting peek into the lives of the rural Norwegian Lutherans who audiences first fell in love with in 2005 is the sixth chapter of the story begun in the original Church Basement Ladies. Rise Up O Men features familiar faces: Mrs. Mavis Gilmerson, Mrs. Vivian Snustad, and Mrs. Karin Engleson who would never leave the basement kitchen unattended, of course (who would make bars for the youth group meeting?). But as they busy themselves with preparations for their church's participation in the town’s 1964 Centennial Celebration, we get to see their coming and goings from the eyes of the menfolk, who have their own problems to solve. Karin’s husband Elroy, farmer Carl and Great War vet Arlo are joined in brotherhood by series staple Pastor E.L. Gunderson. Their camaraderie unites them as they deal with furnace salesmen, looming retirement, rival Protestant denominations, the Pastor’s bad jokes, and Arlene’s even-worse cooking.

Originally produced by Troupe America Inc, the original musical comedy, “The Church Basement Ladies”, opened at the Plymouth Playhouse in Minneapolis September 2005 to a response so enthusiastic that its initial run lasted two-and-a-half years. Five sequels have expanded the universe of these familiar and beloved comedies, affectionately known as the “Steel Magnolias of the Prairie,” making The Church Basement Ladies the most successful show in Troupe America’s 30-year history. Millions of Americans have discovered a heartfelt connection to the deeply funny church matriarch characters through regional and national touring productions.

**By contractual arrangement, there are only Adult, Senior and group ticket rates for this production.**
