MCCC’s Kelsey Theatre Announces Summer Schedule

6/5/14


West Windsor, N.J. – Mercer County Community College’s Kelsey Theatre never goes dark for long! Kelsey’s summer season commences on July 12 with the first of four performance events that run through August 16. Tickets are on sale now, with discounted packages available with the purchase of three or all four of the shows.  Kelsey Theatre is located on the college’s West Windsor campus, 1200 Old Trenton Road.

Reock & Roll Revue, which has brought groundbreaking rock ’n roll classics to the Kelsey stage since 2011, presents a “Classic Album Encore” on Saturday, July 12 at 8 p.m. and Sunday, July 13 at 2 p.m. The band will reprise selected highlights from each of its acclaimed shows – The Beatles White Album, The Who's Quadrophenia, Crosby Stills, Nash and Young's Déjà vu, The Band, The Allman Brothers' Eat a Peach and Eric Clapton's Journeyman.  The music will be accompanied by video and narrative that tie the bands together from a political and cultural perspective.  Tickets are $25 for all. (These shows sell out quickly, so get your tickets soon.)

Reock and Roll Revue kicks off the summer at Kelsey Theatre with its “Classic Album Encore” July 12 and 13.

Next up is “Meet Me in St. Louis,” to be presented by The Yardley Players on Fridays, July 18 and 25 at 8 p.m.; Saturdays, July 19 and 26 at 8 p.m.; and Sundays, July 20 and 27 at 2 p.m. Theater-goers will travel back to the turn of the 20th century when the World's Fair comes to St. Louis and change is afoot for the Smiths, a proud local family. The Smith children love their hometown and can't wait to enjoy the fair.  But will their father’s job offer in New York City upend their idyllic lives? The show is based on the 1944 Judy Garland movie and features such memorable songs as “Skip to My Lou,” “The Boy Next Door” and “The Trolley Song.”  Tickets are $20 for adults, $18 for seniors, and $16 for students.

Another classic American musical follows with “Li’l Abner” on Fridays, Aug. 1 and 8 at 8 p.m.; Saturdays, Aug. 2 and 9 at 8 p.m.; and Sundays, Aug. 3 and 10 at 2 p.m. M & M Stage will bring Al Capp’s beloved cartoon characters off the page and onto the stage.  This wild musical tale is a foot-stomping mix of hillbilly nonsense and sharp humor as the residents of Dogpatch have a run-in with the government that will tickle the funnybone. Tickets are $20 for adults, $18 for seniors, and $16 for students.

Last up – and back by popular demand! – is the Fourth Annual Kelsey Theatre Awards Ceremony on Saturday, Aug. 16 at 8 p.m.  Presented by K2KEntertainment and the Kelsey Theatre Advisory Board, this festive evening is a comedic musical event and awards ceremony rolled into one, complete with reprises of memorable scenes and performance numbers from the 2013-14 season.  It’s Kelsey’s very own People’s Choice Awards, with fans invited to nominate and vote for their favorites online here starting June 23. Tickets are $16 for all.

A special Kelsey Kids event is “Frozen - the Movie Sing-A-Long,” presented by MCCC and Theater to Go.  Fans of the movie can sing along to the words of the Academy Award-Nominated film event of a generation.  The screening includes a costume parade and contest, trivia contest and a gift bag of interactive things to do during the movie, led by the talented cast of Theater To Go.  "Frozen" comes to Kelsey Theatre on Saturday, June 21 at 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. (The screenings set for Saturday, July 12 are sold out.)  Tickets are $18 for adults, $16 for seniors, and $14 for children 2 and up.

Discounted ticket packages include 25% off the purchase of tickets for four shows and a 20% discount for three shows.  Tickets are available online or by calling the Kelsey Theatre Box Office at 609-570-3333.  Those purchasing a package can print the Summer Series order form here. Kelsey Theatre is wheelchair accessible, with free parking available next to the theater.
