This Week at the Cobb Energy Centre April 18 – 24, 2016
We have two exciting shows at the Cobb Energy Centre this week!
Fashioned after Broadway’s Tony Awards, the Georgia High School Musical Theatre Awards – Shuler Hensley Awards celebrate excellence in high school musical theater. The Awards are named in honor of actor/singer and Georgia native, Shuler Hensley, winner of the prestigious Tony Award, Outer Critics Circle Award and Drama Desk Award. The program embodies a spirit of camaraderie and celebration for the arts in high schools across Georgia. Atlanta’s Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre provides a beautiful, state-of-the-art home for the Shuler Awards. The Shulers are a part of the National High School Musical Theatre Awards – The Jimmy Nederlander Awards.
Be sure to tune in to GPB Thursday at 7:30 pm!
And, you don’t want to miss Ragtime the Musical this weekend! AT THE DAWN OF A NEW CENTURY, everything is changing…and anything is possible. RAGTIME returns to North America in a striking, all-new touring production from the producing team that most recently brought you THE COLOR PURPLE and SPAMALOT. The stories of an upper-class wife, a determined Jewish immigrant and a daring young Harlem musician unfold – set in turn-of-the-century New York – all three united by their desire and belief in a brighter tomorrow. Their compelling stories are set to theatre’s richest and most glorious Tony Award®-winning score by Stephen Flaherty and Lynn Ahrens.
