The South Miami-Dade Cultural Arts Center is bringing an electric inventory of cultural programming to South Florida with its 2019-20 season.
Iconic performances include the Broadway national tour of The Color Purple; Meat Loaf’s production BAT featuring his band, The Neverland Express, and American Idol-winner Caleb Johnson; The Naked Musicians, an Australian duo that performs magic tricks in the near-nude, and “Choir of Man,” an internationally recognized singing group that guests will even be able to join on stage for a pre-show drink.
Celebrating its ninth season, SMDCAC is renowned for bringing a diverse selection of performances to its main stage that appeal to all patrons. Dance enthusiasts will experience nationally and internationally recognized companies, including America’s Got Talent acts, a powerful tango duo, and a Miami-based ballet company. Meanwhile, those with a taste for eccentric, visual presentations will enjoy performances from renowned acrobats, illusionists and magicians.
In addition to its main-stage lineup, the center will have programming in its Black Box and Lab theaters, which will play host to the intimate performances of rising jazz stars, instrumentalists and dancers.
To kick off the season, SMDCAC is hosting its free Backyard Bash event on Oct. 12, which features live music, food trucks and more. Attendees are encouraged to bring lawn chairs and blankets, pick up information on the upcoming season, and tour the facility.
For young audiences, SMDCAC is offering an exclusive lineup of performances through its Family Series. The center also is continuing to partner with Culture Shock Miami, the county’s young audience development program that offers $5 tickets to performances, museums and cultural attractions around Miami-Dade County productions for young adults.
