FM Kirby Center 2014-2015 Season

Celtic Woman, Vince Gill, The Irish Rovers, Chazz Palminteri among highlights
The F.M. Kirby Center for the Performing Arts is proud to announce the line-up for its 2014-2015 Season, which features the best of Broadway, comedy, music, film, one tour’s United States premiere and so much more. Always “At The Heart of the Arts and Entertainment,” the Kirby Center offers a diverse, star-studded group of performances that include Celtic Woman’s 10th Anniversary Tour, The Irish Rovers’ Farewell Tour, The Time Jumpers (featuring Vince Gill) and a Broadway package of Jekyll & Hyde and Chazz Palminteri’s A Bronx Tale, just to name a few.
The new season also includes previously-announced performances by Dweezil Zappa, John Mueller’s Winter Dance Party, comedian Bill Maher and legendary Grateful Dead lyricist Robert Hunter, all of which are on sale now.
An Evening with Groucho highlights the Kirby Center’s annual Signature Series, while 360 All-Stars adds the some high-flying, urban-circus flair, and Slapstick Sonata makes its U.S. debut right here in Wilkes-Barre.
Presented by Prague’s Cirk La Putyka, one of Europe’s most pioneering physical theater companies, Slapstick Sonata is an absurd yet poetic theater piece without text or words, set to the music of Mozart, Handel, Shostakovich and others.
The ongoing Young People’s Theater Series also returns, now with a lower ticket price of only $6 (every 16th ticket is still free) and features school-time stage adaptations of The Wizard of Oz and Beauty and the Beast, among others.
The new season also welcomes the return of the W. Curtis Montz Film Series, which will be themed into three different categories - Science Fiction, Mystery and Stars of Hollywood – and now features matinee and evening screenings on specific Sundays throughout the fall.
Individual tickets for the 2014-2015 Season go on sale Friday, May 30th at 10:00 a.m., but Kirby Members can pre-purchase their seats beginning Friday, May 16th at 10:00 a.m.  Pre-sale tickets will be available at the box office or by calling (570) 826-1100.
