Nitsch Theatre Arts Rising Stars
Saturday, June 10, 3:30 – 4:30 p.m.
The "story" of Nitsch Theatre Arts NFP began in the heart of a little girl who always loved to sing, dance and put on shows for her grandma.
This is the girl who always wanted to take dance and drama classes, but whose family just didn't always have the means and availability to get her there. Thank goodness a friend took her to a free class and the dance studio owner saw "something" in this young lady and allowed her to work for her classes. Thank goodness her high school had a solid drama program that allowed her to realize that she had always been right about what her passion was – the theatre was her second home.
This young girl became a teacher.....and that is when the arts started taking a backseat to other academics. A dream was born "to make sure all students and adults have access to the arts" because she knew that the arts have the power to change lives. After all, it had made all the difference in hers.
Nitsch Theater Arts provides performance, technical, and creative arts opportunities for adults, youth, and people with special needs. They provide arts education in schools and communities at a reasonable or no cost to participants.
Come enjoy this performance by NTA’s Rising Stars – a group of talented young people giving back to the community through performance

The Neverly Brothers
Saturday, June 10, 8:30 - 10:00 p.m.
The Neverly Brothers concerts are a tribute to one of the most exciting chapters in music history: the birth, near death and
resurrection of rock n’ roll. Their one-of-a-kind high energy stage performances take you on a musical guided tour of rock history – from 1955 to 1965.
The first half of their concert pays tribute to the music created by the 1950s American Rock n' Roll pioneers - which by 1960 had become a distant memory but became the inspiration for the next wave of young rock bands from Britain. The second half then pays tribute to the 1964 British Invasion bands that re-recorded the forgotten 1950s American rock music – along with lesser known early 1960s rhythm & blues songs, recorded their own original songs and pulled Rock n' Roll from the edge of extinction by re-inventing and re-energizing it for a new generation.
You'll learn rock history and be thoroughly entertained with their chronological song sequence, stories behind the music and vintage wardrobe changes. Their repertoire consists of show-stopping renditions of early hits by Jerry Lee Lewis (Great balls of fire), Chuck Berry (Johnny B. Goode), Eddie Cochran (Summertime blues), Buddy Holly (That’ll be the day), The Beatles (Twist & shout), The Rolling Stones (Satisfaction), The Kinks (You really got me), The Dave Clark Five (Glad all over) and more.
It‘s not “moldy oldies” – it’s “old-school cool!” So hop aboard our virtual tour bus and fasten your seatbelts for an exciting MAGICAL HISTORY TOUR!
