Take 6
JOHN AND ALICE BUTLER HALL


Grammy-winning a cappella gospel music sextet heralded by Quincy Jones as the “baddest vocal cats on the planet,” Take 6 is the quintessential a cappella group and the model for vocal genius.  Six virtuosic voices unite in crystal clear harmony, against a backdrop of syncopated rhythms, innovative arrangements, and funky grooves that bubble into an intoxicating brew of gospel, jazz, R&B, and pop. With praise from such luminaries as Ray Charles, Stevie Wonder, Brian Wilson, Ella Fitzgerald, and Whitney Houston, the multi-platinum selling vocal phenom has toured across the globe and collaborated across genres. Take 6 is recognized as the pre-eminent a capella group in the world.

A free Cybercafé Knapp Stage Pre-Show Concert featuring the UD Gospel Choir precedes this performance from 6:00 – 7:00 p.m.

Moon Mouse: A Space Odyssey
Lightwire Theater of New Orleans

JOHN AND ALICE BUTLER HALL

A cosmic adventure celebrating differences! Marvin the Mouse wants to be popular. Constantly bullied and picked on by the “cool” rats, he is labeled a loser and a geek. To escape the continuous badgering, Marvin retreats into his science books and world of fantasy. He longs for adventure and heroism. Join Marvin on the space adventure of a lifetime: a trip to the moon on his homemade rocket, where he meets a strange cast of misfit creatures, experiences infinite peril, and views awesome beauty. Will Marvin make his dreams come true and experience the glory and acceptance he craves? Puppetry-based neon creatures come to life in Lightwire’s signature brand of electroluminescent artistry, poignant musical storytelling, and evocative, life-like imagery.

Children will get to meet the puppeteers and puppets after the show!

Six Guitars
BABKA THEATRE - A B.I.T.E. SIZE SERIES EVENT

Six Guitars is a tour-de-force love letter to music and a pitch-perfect blend of music, comedy, and characters. Chase Padgett delivers a virtuosic performance as he becomes six different guitar players each with their own distinct voice, views, and musical style (blues, jazz, rock, classical, folk, and country). During this 85-minute show, each of the characters, ranging from a 19-year-old rock prodigy to an 87-year-old blues man, share their journey with music from discovery to mastery through songs and stories that leave every audience laughing, crying, and falling in love with music all over again. 

There will be an optional bonus post-show Q & A with Chase!

Shaun Johnson Big Band Experience
JOHN AND ALICE BUTLER HALL


The Shaun Johnson Big Band Experience is a rare newcomer to traditional pop...fusing a big band spirit with an inventive edge...more risky than Bublé, more modern than Sinatra. Shaun, an Emmy award-winning crooner (and lead singer of the internationally known vocal group, Tonic Sol-fa) indelibly stamps vocal jazz and swing with a contemporary punch - to the delight of both traditionalists and newcomers - emerging as an original voice in the continuing tradition of the American singer. Shaun is joined by his band including piano, drums, bass, trumpet, trombone, alto and tenor sax.
