Showcase Series 16 17

Historic Seminole Theatre Executive Director Mickey McGuire and Pinnacle Venue Services announce the 2016-2017 Seminole Showcase Series.  This year's line-up includes a bevy of high profile musical performers as well as comedians, theatrical performers, and even circus acrobats.

The Historic Seminole Theatre re-opened in December of 2015 after being shuttered for nearly four decades.  The inaugural Showcase Series season brought many renowned artists to the South Miami Dade area, from Jon Secada to the The Wailers to country star Brandy Clark.  The theater looks to expand on the initial success with 2016-2017 season, including a series of firsts for the theater.

SammyKershaw270x320"We're excited about the diversity of this Showcase Series season" said Executive Director Mickey McGuire. "We are situated in a diverse community, and it's important that our programming reflect that.  I think everyone can look at this season and find at least one performance that they are really excited about - if not two or three!"

The season, which runs from October to May, kicks off with Country Night featuring 3-time platinum award winner Sammy Kershaw.  The first Country Night featured line dancing, BBQ food trucks, and an after party at a local saloon, and Seminole Theatre staff plan to make it a tradition.  "We loved that people could build an entire night's experience around the event.  Not only can you experience an awesome artist like Sammy Kershaw, as well as amazing local talent Jade Sanders, but plan a whole experience around it" says McGuire.

Another highlight of the season is comedian and television personality Drew Lynch.  Lynch captured America's heart when he overcame his

severe stutter with a Golden Buzzer performance on America's Got Talent.  "Do something every day that scares you" is a motto that Lynch lives by.

In December, Homestead will be visited by the Shanghai Acrobats of the People's Republic of China.  After more than 50 years’ efforts, the troupe has become one of the most influential and competitive acrobatic companies in China and has won many awards at the acrobatic and circus competitions at home and abroad.

The series will present two theatrical tours, the first time professional theater will have ever played in the iconic building.  In November, the Seminole will host "Vincent", a one man play by Leonard Nimoy reflecting on the life of Vincent Van Gogh.  Starring James Briggs, the production comes to Homestead after recently completing a run Off-Broadway.  In March, the series presents the 35th Anniversary Tour of "Forbidden Broadway", the musical comedic romp poking fun at Broadway favorites.

GarfunkelBannerThere's one name that should resonate far and wide, according to Executive Director McGuire.  "We're very lucky this season to be working with someone who I believe is truly a living legend in the music world."  On February 3, Art Garfunkel will play an intimate, acoustic performance in the historic theater auditorium.  Although it has been over 40 years since Bridge Over Troubled Water was recorded, Art Garfunkel's image and signature vocal remain among the most instantly recognizable in popular music. His "beautiful countertenor," as Neil Strauss described Art's voice in The New York Times, is clear and resonant, surely one of the finest instruments in all of popular music, and a time-honored friend to a world of listeners.

The Seminole Showcase Series is only the beginning, however, according to McGuire.  Still to be announced are the WLRN Radio Theater Series, a collaboration with WLRN bringing classic and new radio plays to stage, a Latin Series presenting artists from around the Spanish speaking world, and Film Series.  "The Seminole Theatre began its life as a movie theater.  While we celebrate the evolution to a state of the art performing arts center, it's important that we celebrate our history, and that's why we're working hard to bring cinema back to the Seminole Theatre."
