PEMBROKE — A musical that took home a Tony Award in 2010 is coming to the Givens Performing Arts Center on Jan. 16.
The critically acclaimed MEMPHIS won four 2010 Tony Awards including Best Musical and Best Original Score along with four Drama Desk Awards including Outstanding Musical, Outstanding Music and four Outer Critic Circle Awards including Outstanding Musical, Outstanding Score and Outstanding Choreography.
MEMPHIS takes place in the smoky halls and underground clubs of the segregated 50’s, where a young white DJ named Huey Calhoun fell in love with everything he shouldn’t: rock and roll and an electrifying black singer. MEMPHIS is an original story about the cultural revolution that erupted when his vision met her voice, and the music changed forever.
The show features music by Bon Jovi’s founding member and keyboardist David Bryan.
Tickets are on sale now at the GPAC Box Office or by calling 910-521-6361. Ticket prices range from $20-$35 for the show, which begins at 8 p.m.
