Orpheum Announces Its Red Carpet Series

WGIL Newsroom . Local News 303

After months of waiting Orpheum Theatre Executive Director Kevin Maynard released the lineup for the 2014-2015 Red Carpet Series.
The series which starts in August kicks off with comedian Rex Havens and his one man show, “Rex Havens: Everything I need to Know I Learned from my Wife.”
This year’s series looks a bit different, starting in August and ending in June and Maynard tells WGIL the changes were made in an effort to reach a wider audience.

” I think that the season that we are offering this year is a wider spectrum, I think that it’s a season that, it would be hard for you to not find a show that you would at least wanted to see. As well as I think all the shows that we are bringing a quality. I think people will enjoy themselves immensely.”

Maynard says other shows include Switchback, The Magic of Bill Blagg, and “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof.”
Also this season YES! Program will feature a show called Doctor Kaboom: Here Comes Science!
