PBSC theaters to launch new season
Palm Beach State College’s three theaters at its Belle Glade, Lake Worth and Palm Beach Gardens campuses are gearing up for their 2021-2022 performing arts season that begins in January with a diverse lineup of performances.
With the theme “See it Live,” the Dolly Hand Cultural Arts Center, Duncan Theatre and Eissey Campus Theatre staff are hoping patrons will be excited to return for more in-person performances. Two of the theaters also are celebrating milestones this season, including the 40th anniversary for the Dolly Hand Cultural Arts Center and the 35th anniversary for the Duncan Theatre.
The lineup varies at each theater and includes a wide range of musical and dance performances, as well as tributes to legendary artists like Elvis Presley, Whitney Houston and Linda Ronstadt. It also features a return of popular events, including Drumline Live, an international tour based on Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) marching band tradition. For the first time, the Dolly Hand Cultural Arts Center is launching a gospel music series.
“We are extremely excited about our dynamic schedule and the opportunity to have more live performances as we continue to return to some sense of normalcy,’’ said Mark Alexander, theatres executive director. “We have something for everyone this year, and we look forward to seeing our patrons.”
Individual tickets go on sale Oct. 14.
