The Springfield Arts Council presents Lionel Bart's

Book, Music and Lyrics by

LIONEL BART

Ben Hunt as “Oliver” (left) and Troy Berry as “Fagin”

Produced by The Springfield Arts Council and Youth Arts Ambassadors

The streets of Victorian England come to life as Oliver, an orphan in a workhouse, becomes the neglected apprentice of an undertaker. Oliver escapes to London and finds acceptance amongst a group of pickpockets boys led by the conniving Fagin and the charming Artful Dodger. When Oliver is captured for a theft he did not commit, the benevolent victim, Mr. Brownlow, takes him in. Fearing the safety of his hideout, Fagin employs the sinister Bill Sikes and the sympathetic Nancy to kidnap him back, threatening Oliver’s chances of discovering the true love of a family. Based on Charles Dickens’ novel, Oliver Twist, this Tony and Olivier Awardwinning show is one of the few musicals to win an Academy Award for Best Picture and is an audience favorite worldwide! LIONEL BART’S OLIVER! is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI). All authorized performance materials are also supplied by MTI. www.MTIShows.com EVENT SPONSORS

Hotel California - The Original Tribute to The Eagles

The Original Tribute to The Eagles, Hotel California, returns to the Summer Arts Festival for another incredible evening celebrating the music of The Eagles! Hotel California prides itself on creating the illusion that you are listening to the actual Eagles. They’ve shared the stage with the Doobie Brothers, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Styx, REO Speedwagon, Gretchen Wilson and many more International Artists. They’ve performed in Dubai, Japan, India, Bermuda & all over North America. Take it Easy. Witchy Woman. Life In The Fast Lane. Lyin’ Eyes. Desperado. Best Of My Love. Heartache Tonight… these and a long list of classic rock’s most memorable melodies are celebrated by “the original tribute to the Eagles,” Hotel California. Rocking the classic harmonies and lyrics of a band that defined a generation, Hotel California recreates the sound of Don Henley, Joe Walsh, Timothy B. Schmit, and the late Glenn Frey in an unforgettable evening of music and memories. “It’s no wonder that Hotel California can pack the cavernous SuperStar Venue on a Thursday night. Many a partying fan must have been late for work the next day, as the capacity toward crowd boogied and cheered the band all the way to last call for alcohol.” - The Mississauga News EVENT CO-SPONSOR

Dancing Wheels

If dance is an expression of the human spirit, then it is best expressed by people of all abilities. Considered one of the premier arts and disabilities organizations in the U.S., Dancing Wheels is a professional, physically integrated dance company uniting the talents of dancers both with and without disabilities. Mary Verdi-Fletcher, the first professional wheelchair dancer in the U.S., founded the Dancing Wheels Company in Cleveland in 1980. Born with spina bifida, Mary wanted to offer others with disabilities full and equal access into the world of dance. An almost unimaginable concept at the time, Mary’s vision and passion have since helped to revolutionize our very notion of dance – as well as what defines a dancer. Furthering the mission of inclusive arts and recreation opportunities for all, the School of Dancing Wheels opened its doors in 1990. That same year, a partnership with the Cleveland Ballet created the Cleveland Ballet Dancing Wheels, which went on to delight audiences for nearly a decade. Now part of Professional Flair, Inc., a 501(c) arts and disabilities organization, Dancing Wheels continues to travel the globe advocating disability awareness. With a repertory of over 40 works from nationallyesteemed choreographers and a message of inclusion and accessibility, the Company continually expands the reach of artistic possibilities while celebrating the universal spirit of dance. Presented with support from Community Health Foundation Springfield Rotary Club ASL (American Sign Language) interpretation for this performance provided courtesy of The Springfield Foundation The Ohio Arts Council helped fund this organization with state tax dollars to encourage economic growth, educational excellence and cultural enrichment for all Ohioans.

The Capitol Steps

The Capitol Steps have elevated political satire to an art form. Before The Daily Show, Full Frontal, and The Colbert Report, this Washington, DC-based comedy troupe gave their audiences laugh cramps with their bipartisan lampooning. No matter who or what is in the headlines, you can bet the Capitol Steps will tackle both sides of the political spectrum and all things equally foolish. The troupe returns to the Summer Art Festival with a new show of musical and political comedy, titled Orange Is the New Barack. Although the Capitol Steps are based in Washington, DC, most of their shows are out-of-town or for out-of-town audiences, whether it’s the National Welding Supply Association, a University audience, High Schoolers, or State Legislators. The only complaints the Steps seem to get are from politicians and personalities who are not included in the program! Most cast members have worked on Capitol Hill; some for Democrats, some for Republicans, and others for politicians who firmly straddle the fence. No matter who holds office, there’s never a shortage of material. Says Elaina Newport, “Typically the Republicans goof up, and the Democrats party. Then the Democrats goof up and the Republicans party. That’s what we call the two-party system.” Whether you’re a Republican, a Democrat, a snowflake or a deplorable no one is safe from the group that puts the “MOCK” in Democracy! EVENT SPONSORS

(www.targetdayton.com/) You will also hear a community choir made up of individuals from several Springfield churches which will be led by Aaron Clark (www.acamlive.com). We know you will be blessed through these groups! The Nehemiah Foundation was birthed out of a city-wide prayer meeting in 1993. For 25 years, people passionate about God and driven by a deep love for Springfield and her people have worked to prayerfully and strategically address the needs of the people of Clark County. Today, The Nehemiah Foundation equips and resources local leaders of non-profit organizations committed to meeting the physical and spiritual needs of youth and families in Clark County. From homelessness and hunger to counseling and residential treatment programs for addiction and trauma; from children’s programs to growing strong leaders for tomorrow, the Nehemiah Foundation serves leaders and non-profits across the city to make our hometown a better place to live.

Shaun Hopper with guest Chris Sgammato

Shaun Hopper is unquestionably one of the finest acoustic-fingerstyle guitar players in America, a rare jewel in the tapestry of the Tampa Bay music scene. Dazzling us with his fiery originals and covering everything from Chet Atkins to Andre Segovia and from The Beatles to Queen, Shaun never fails to mesmerize! Born and raised in Adel, Georgia, Shaun began playing guitar at age 12 after hearing a local street musician fingerpick a Nirvana song outside the local arcade. That’s all it took to light the fire. Shaun played bass in several rock & country bands, cutting his teeth at local Valdosta clubs, touring the Southeast. Today, Shaun is pursuing his own compositions (including songwriting) as well as learning arrangements and compositions from some of the best guitarists on the planet. He is undaunted at every challenge, citing “time” as his only obstacle.“You have to keep playing if you want to reach those next levels,” Hopper says. “You have to make time to practice or it won’t happen.” His words echo his daily ritual and the results are self evident. Moving thematically through his repertoire, Shaun takes his audience on a tour from Celtic imagery and Classical medley to soulful ballads and jazzy improvs, all of which he might counter punch with a Nashville “hot licks” session, neck popping original or 70s pop song. With listeners caught off balance, he is still able to rouse them up with a contagious sing-a-long or two. Song by song, night after night, Shaun always raises a smile, a glass and if not... a standing ovation.

Fans of Tom Petty are unanimous is their appreciation of The Petty Breakers and their celebration of the late, great artist.

Based out of Southern California, this band accurately recreates the sights, sounds and concert experience of a Tom Petty concert. Playing to packed houses all over the United States, The Petty Breakers is comprised of excellent musicians who have performed and recorded with international artists. The Petty Breakers were chosen to perform on AXS TV’s “The World’s Greatest Tribute Bands,” honoring the music of this legendary American icon. All the classics - “American Girl,” “Break Down,” “Free Fallin’,” “Mary Jane’s Last Dance,” “Refugee,” “Runnin’ Down a Dream,” and many more - are perfectly reproduced by this talented band. “As many of you know, we’ve been paying tribute to the music of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers all over this great country for the last 8 years. Recently, we all suffered a major heartbreak when we lost one of the most prolific and brilliant singer songwriters this world has ever known.” “First and foremost, we want to send out our heartfelt condolences to Tom Petty’s family, bandmates, friends and fans. Myself and my bandmates were devastated when we learned the news and are still numb as we mourn this loss. We are humbled by the number of messages we received expressing condolences and encouragement to continue to pay him tribute, and to keep his music alive. We would like to invite all fans to come and celebrate the life and music of Tom Petty.” (from www.thepettybreakers.com)

Pull out your flip-flops, put on your Hawaiian shirt, and get ready for a change of attitude as The Parrots of the Caribbean return to Veteran’s Park for our annual Parrothead Party in the Park! Parrots of the Caribbean delight audiences throughout the U.S. and Canada. Along with your favorite Buffett hits, they perform the acclaimed original hits from their CD “Cool Bayou,” a Trop-Rock Island blend of Zydeco, Rock, Country, and Patriotic flair that will have you up and dancing all night long.

Lead Singer and harmonica player Dave Albrecht - aka J.B. - bought his first harmonica at age 18, and by 30 had landed a front-man position impersonating Dan Aykroyd’s “Elwood Blues” character in a nine-piece Blues Brothers Tribute. For the next five years, that band traveled the US. Soon after, Dave signed with “Legends in Concert,” a top-ranked show of impersonators at the Imperial Palace in Las Vegas. However, Dave had been long-inspired by his love for the music of Jimmy Buffett, and took his passion in a new direction. He gathered some of the finest seasoned musicians for The Parrots of the Caribbean, and almost a decade has earned acclaim as the number one Jimmy Buffett tribute act in the country, and a Summer Arts Festival favorite!

Just ask Scott and Joan Houghton, who have made a career out of doing just that… taking dogs from shelters to show business with their comedic canine show “Mutts Gone Nuts!” You’ll howl with laughter at Mutts Gone Nuts! - Canine Cabaret! Expect the unexpected as the “disorderly duo,” Scott, Joan, and their hilarious pack of pooches, present this comedy dog thrill show like you’ve never seen before! This top-notch family-friendly performance unleashes the talents of nine amazing canines, includes incredible high-flying frisbee dogs, tight wire dogs, dancing dogs, magic dogs, and of course, the one and only “Sammie, The Talking Dog!” The canines of Mutts Gone Nuts were adopted from animal shelters or from rescue groups. Only all positive, rewards-based training methods are used, which means looking for what the dogs like to do naturally and cultivating those talents, rewarding and reinforcing the positive behaviors with treats and toys, and ignoring unwanted behaviors.

The Temps

The nerdy, yet irresistible musical geniuses (and self-proclaimed “Smartest Band in the Midwest”) The Temps hail from very nearby in Ohio. Their collective inability to stick with full-time employment sparked the genesis of this high energy, dance rock band. Although ultra comfortable with data entry and mall security work, The Temps work best on stage, entertaining the masses with their upbeat renditions of dance cover music from the 80s to today. Their uncanny and clever mix of music genres stretches from The Black Keys, Johnny Cash, and Green Day to Michael Jackson, Flogging Molly, and Lady Gaga. The Temps’ fans, many of whom frequent shows in “I love Nerds” and “Talk Nerdy to me” tee-shirts, have come to expect the unexpected from the “fab foursome.” From the beginning of the show when the band runs on stage, until simultaneously stripping out of their office attire (on stage) down to their matching necktie tee-shirts, The Temps are sure to quench their fans’ thirst for entertainment!

Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Bluegrass Band

Bands have covered Beatles tunes for years, but none like Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Bluegrass Band. Imagine the music of the Fab Four shaken up with infusions of bluegrass and jazz and topped off with a classical twist. The result: a satisfying musical cocktail. So, what if The Beatles were actually from somewhere in the Black Mountain Hills of Dakota? Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Bluegrass Band is a collection of four very different musicians creating a new sound from the greatest music ever written by the greatest band ever, The Beatles. Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Bluegrass Band’s repertoire features new and innovative takes on songs like Eleanor Rigby, Back in the U.S.S.R., Come Together, Blackbird and more. Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Bluegrass Band is a modern bluegrass band that plays and sings the songs of The Beatles. The band starts with some of the best music composed by Paul McCartney, John Lennon and George Harrison, then takes it on a “magical mystery tour” all its own. Fundamentally, it’s an acoustic version of The Beatles using a little experimentation. These familiar songs come from instruments you normally wouldn’t expect to hear, played in a way they are not normally played. “This isn’t your same old Beatles band,” says Dave Walser, founder of the innovative group. A fan of the classic quartet since he first saw them on the Ed Sullivan Show, Dave was inspired to create Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Bluegrass Band after seeing McCartney’s Back in the U.S. tour in 2002. “I thought it would be fun to get some great musicians together and play all acoustic versions of Beatles songs. Each of us adds a little something different to the mix”. The result is a pleasing sound with a lot of fun surprises along the way.

Stayin’ Alive - The World’s #1 Tribute to The Bee Gees

Stayin’ Alive brings audiences the songs and sights of a full Bee Gees play list, singing blockbusters such as “Night Fever,” “You Should Be Dancing,” “Nights on Broadway,” and “Stayin’ Alive”. In addition, they perform softer poetic ballads such as “Massachusetts,” “Fanny Be Tender,” “Words,” and “To Love Somebody,” among other great memories. From traditional hits like “Massachusetts” to disco era mega-hits like “Jive Talkin’,” the authentic look and falsetto voices of this Canadian production allow you to relive those great memories of the 70s. Stayin’ Alive’s vocal match to the Gibb Brothers (Barry, Maurice and Robin) is uncanny, and creates an eerie sense of seeing the Bee Gees live in concert, beginning with their 1967 breakout album Bee Gees First, with songs like “I Gotta Get A Message To You” and “I Started A Joke” and continuing through “How Deep Is Your Love,” “Love You Inside Out,” and “Too Much Heaven.”  Stayin’ Alive captures the full history of the Bee Gees’ music, is the largest and most definitive production of its kind, and is the quintessential tribute band to the Bee Gees, capturing the excitement of live performance and the subtleties of the human voice! “Some tribute bands sound good. Some look good. Some move & dance like the original etc… But every once in a while, you get this powerhouse combination of sounds GREAT, looks GREAT, stage presence is GREAT, show is GREAT, light show is GREAT!!! Such was the case tonight with this Bee Gees Tribute Band called, “Stayin’ Alive” from Canada.” – Mike Thomas, “Magic and Memories” Walt Disney World Blogger EVENT SPONSOR
