2018 was Seminole Theatre’s biggest year yet, with record audiences and 3 in-house community theatre productions. And it looks like for 2019, theatre is off to a great start in Homestead.
The winter portion of the theatre’s season is diverse. With everything from magic to musicals to classical music- there’s something for everyone.
Kicking off the New Year is Forever Young (January 4), a musical about five best friends who discover that a record player can change everything. Set in a suburban basement, the musical is jam-packed with powerhouse vocals, dynamite choreography, and music that you know (and probably love) from the 70s , 80s and beyond. Stop by early for an 80s themed party before the show featuring karaoke, a photo booth, themed drinks and more!
The Chipper Experience (January 12) is a family comedy and magic show that fuses the rousing with the ridiculous. Chipper Lawrence leads the audience through a lighthearted spree of juggling, illusions, bizarre stunts, and mentalism. The theatre is also accepting submissions for Seminole’s Funniest Home Videos. Finalists get to enjoy the show for free and have their videos shown at the event! Check the theatre’s website for details.
The theatre has never been short of incredible musical acts. From Art Garfunkel to the genre-bending contemporary orchestra Nu-Deco and beyond, it’s done a great job of satisfying musical tastes of all kinds. Coming up in the winter is classical pianist Julian Gargiulo who is coming to Homestead (January 27) after playing Carnegie Hall.
“Every time I talk to him he’s in another country,” says Executive Director of the Seminole, Mickey McGuire. “What you wouldn’t guess is that he’s also this really engaging, funny guy, and he has a way of involving the entire audience. You don’t need to be a classical music buff to enjoy the show, and to see a world-renowned artist like Julian for just $20-$30 is a steal.”
All tickets to these and other shows can be purchased at seminoletheatre.org or by calling 786-650-2073 or visiting the box office at 18 N Krome Ave. Homestead, FL 33030 anytime from 12-6pm, Tues-Sat.
