Imperial Theatre – Friday April 27 at 7:00 PM
Colton Ballet presents an exciting and inspiring evening of music and dance on Friday, April 27 at 7:00 PM at the Imperial Theatre. The evening features Colton dancers with renowned local musicians Karen Gordon, Garden City Jazz and Augusta’s favorite Russell Joel Brown. Augusta native and Ailey II dancer, Christopher Wilson, and guest artists Olivia Powell and John Deming will also be featured. Peter Powlus collaborates with these artists to create a chic jazz club milieu with a swinging, fun flare. Caitlin McCormack challenges the imagination with an intriguing, amusing work. Saudade Amore, choreographed by Louisville Ballet soloist and MOMIX artist, Amanda Hulen, features the Cirque du Soleil-like virtuosity of two stunning professional dancers. And Augusta audiences will delight in the sheer joy of watching Christopher Wilson in Peter Powlus’ Sol Man, conceived with a 1940’s era energy and spirit. Interspersed throughout these pieces, Russell has chosen a medley of jazz and Broadway show tunes and Karen and her band will offer a set filled with jazz favorites.
The evening promises to be an electric yet sophisticated, elegant yet fun, evening of music and dance. Tickets range in price from $25-$35 and can be purchased at: imperialtheatre.com or by calling 706-722-8341.
