COME...there are still many The excitement of having you join us for the second half of the 20132014 season is captured by Young Auditorium’s spokesperson, Emmy award winner, John McGivern. John states, “It’s been my pleasure to introduce the Broadway Tour of Memphis and the amazing presentation by the Gay Men’s Chorus of Los Angeles and to sit in this theater and enjoy these shows as an audience member. I love to sit in the dark, in a wonderful space and get caught up in the story being told. That’s what we do here. We tell stories.” It is our mission to amaze you with top notch performances, new state-of-the-art lighting and sound systems, and an amazing facility including a beautiful new courtyard to enjoy on those gorgeous spring days before and after a show. We firmly believe that you will be amazed by the variety and quality of performances we have in store for you.

AMAZED!

BE ENTERTAINED by the antics COME BE AMAZED! of the Church Basement Ladies in A Mighty Fortress is Our Basement. The Ladies are back with an all new musical. It’s 1960 and the Church Basement Ladies are once again required to face challenges head-on. Against the changing tide, these pillars of the church stand strong in their faith and friendships with more crazy antics, more great new songs, and more lessons reluctantly learned.

BE DELIGHTED by Emmy award

winner John McGivern in Summer Stories. Travel back in time as John reminisces about the best times of summer: Memorial Day, the last day of school, 4th of July, summer camp, family vacation, the dog days of August, and the dreaded arrival of Labor Day when it all comes to an inevitable end with the return to school. John’s brilliant talent for comedy and storytelling will send you into summertime feeling like a kid again!
