Luhrs Center Presents Forever Motown

Luhrs Center Presents Forever Motown

On Saturday, June 4, enjoy seeing the greatest Motown groups of all time, all on stage together again! That’s Forever Motown, and it’s so good for the soul. Hitsville churned out all the No. 1 hits back in the 60’s and 70’s…and this show celebrates the best of the best from Berry Gordy’s Detroit hit-making factory. A fabulous cast, backed by a band of incredible musicians, represents Motown royalty-performing the beloved songs from the greatest groups, artists, and songwriters of all time: The Four Tops, The Temptations, The Supremes, Smokey Robinson, Mary Wells, Marvin Gaye, Tammi Terrell, and Stevie Wonder. Tickets are $0, $35, $30 abd $20. Purchase here. Show begins at 7:30 PM.

“Clearly the best Motown Review to date”, raved CBS News; “Captures the essence of America’s own music in an evening of sheer fun, “ wrote the Washington Post. “Bring your dancing shoes, and bring the whole family. This is a show for everyone,“ exclaimed the Entertainment Review. Sing, dance and celebrate the music of your life to songs like “My Girl”, “I Heard It On The Grapevine,“ “Reach Out,” “Shop Around,” “Dancin’ In The Street,“ “Stop, In The Name Of Love,” “Ain’t Nothing Like The Real Thing,” “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough,” “How Sweet It Is (To Be Loved By You),” and “Uptight”-nearly thirty nonstop hits in all!

The Luhrs Center is a premier facility and is unmatched between Harrisburg, Pennsylvania and Harrisonburg, Virginia. When the Center opened to the public in January 2006, Shippensburg became perfectly positioned to build upon its tradition of attracting national touring companies and nationally known performers and speakers. The Center currently attracts symphony orchestras, dance companies, and four-star performers.

THE MAGIC OF MOTOWN Saturday, January 13, 2018 at 7pm $35, 30, 20
Group Discount available for 10 or more
Wine & Beer available for purchase when the doors open at 6pm
– The Capitol Theatre audience will take a stroll down memory lane as they relive, or experience for the first time, the incredible harmonies and smooth moves made famous by The Temptations, The Four Tops, Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, Earth, Wind & Fire, James Brown, The Spinners, The O’Jays and many more! In the 1960’s, some of the most iconic names in music history were discovered in the Motor City of Detroit, which ushered a worldwide craze that transformed into 1970’s soul. The Magic of Motown is a celebration of these artists, their music and timeless style. This dynamic and driving tribute spans more than a decade of Motown and soul classics – every one of these songs among the most recognizable and culture-defining songs in pop music history. The show features stylishly-costumed, smoothly choreographed performances, the hallmark sounds of Detroit Motown and Philadelphia soul, backed by a seven-piece band. Includes a moving tribute to Dr. Martin Luther King.

TAPESTRY – TRIBUTE TO CAROLE KING Saturday, January 20, 2018 at 7pm $35, 30, 20
Group Discount available for 10 or more
Wine and Beer available for purchase when the doors open at 6pm
-This show is some kind of wonderful and beautifully and faithfully recreates the glorious sound of a Carole King concert, which will leave the Capitol Theatre audience with memories of the great music she wrote and recorded, including “You’ve Got a Friend”, Natural Woman”, “It’s Too Late”, “So Far Away”, “I Feel the Earth Move” and “Beautiful” – the title song of the mega-hit Broadway musical about the life and times of one of America’s most prolific, honored, and revered singer-songwriters. Tapestry: Tribute to Carole King stars national touring Jeannie Austin on piano and vocals with her back-up singers and live band. Carole King is without question the most successful and revered female singer-songwriter in pop music history. More than 400 of her compositions have been recorded by over 1000 artists, resulting in 100 hit singles – from “Will You Love Me Tomorrow” for the Shirelles to “Take Good Care of My Baby: and “Run to Him” (#1 and #2 hits for Bobby Vee in 1961), “Crying in the Rain” (The Everly Brothers, #6 in 1962), “The Loco-Motion” (Little Eva, #1 in 1962), “Up on the Roof” (The Drifters, #5 in 1962), “One Fine Day” (The Chiffons, #5 in 1963), I’m Into Something Good” (Herman’s Hermits, #13 in 1964), “Just Once in My Life” (written with Phil Spector for The Righteous Brothers, #9 in 1965), and “Don’t Bring Me Down” (The Animals, #12 in 1966). It was her 1971 album “Tapestry” that took King to the pinnacle, winning all 3 of the key Grammy Awards – record, song and album of the year as well as best female vocalist honors for King. With more than 25 million units sold, Tapestry remained the best-selling album by a femal artist for a quarter century, and King went on to amass three other platinum and seven gold albums.

MARK NIZER – 4D Entertainer and World Class Juggler Sunday, January 28, 2018 – 4pm The perfect way to end IceFest $23, 20, 15
Group Discount available for 10 or more.
– The only live 4D show in the World!
Entertainment Magazine states, “Without a doubt the hottest juggler on the entertainment market, Mark Nizer is simply incredible.” Don’t miss the combination of original comedy, world class juggling, movement, music and technology that promises a spellbinding evening. Nizer has opened for dozens of major Hollywood personalities and performed in dozens of major venues around the world. Imagine a concert experience that incorporates light, sound, and color to create a multidimensional 4D visual feast for the eyes. Throw in world-class juggling, a good dose of outrageous humor, and some unexpected technology and you have Mark Nizer’s unique, one-of-a-kind show that has been described by Performance Magazine as “nothing less than brilliant.” The fun begins from the moment Nizer takes the stage. While most performers ask people to turn off their cell phones, Nizer asks his audience to turn ON their phones. With the help of his virtual assistant, Siri Nizer (of iPhone fame), he then uses the devices as an interactive lighting element.
Great for the entire family! At the show, 4D glasses will be available while supplies last through the generosity of The Toy Box in Downtown Chambersburg. Special glasses not needed to enjoy the show!
