Niswonger Performing Arts Center announces season

July 27, 2017

Now entering its 13th season, the Niswonger Performing Arts Center invites new and returning guests to "Experience the Arts" with another lineup of entertainment featuring 32 performances for the 2017-2018 Season.

From classic rock to theatrical productions, country and contemporary Christian, NPAC once again brings some of the top names in entertainment to Greeneville, Tennessee. The season kicks off Aug. 26 with "Roll With It" country music star Easton Corbin, continues with performances from Air Supply, Ronnie Milsap and Greeneville's own, The Band Perry, then closes on May 19 with the comedy of Tim Hawkins.

Among many others, NPAC welcomes for the very first time, Grammy-winner Michael Bolton, classic rock icons Grand Funk Railroad, Motown sensation The Four Tops, country hit-maker Tracy Lawrence, and the legendary Eddie Money. Four stars from the original cast of Broadway's Jersey Boys, The Midtown Men, also light up the NPAC stage and bring to life their favorite "Sixties Hits" from The Beatles, The Beach Boys, Motown, The Four Seasons and more. Dailey & Vincent and Jimmy Fortune, who played for a capacity crowd at their last visit to NPAC, return for a night of country and bluegrass.

The holidays bring country superstars The Oak Ridge Boys' Christmas Celebration Tour, contemporary Christian artist Laura Story, and an all-new stage production of "A Charlie Brown Christmas." Join Charlie Brown, Snoopy, Lucy, Linus and the rest of the Peanuts gang, as the classic animated television special comes to life on stage in a production that is sure to delight fans of all ages.

Straight from the U.K. and for the first time in the U.S., "The Simon and Garfunkel Story" is a critically-acclaimed concert style theater show. Using state-of-the-art video production with original film footage, lighting and a full live band performing all the hits, "The Simon and Garfunkel Story" is a moving and powerful concert and covers all the hits such as "Mrs. Robinson," "Bridge Over Troubled Water," "Homeward Bound," "Sound of Silence" and more.

The dinosaurs will be roaming at NPAC this season as Erth's Dinosaur Zoo LIVE guides your family on a tour through pre-historic Australia. You'll observe, meet and interact with an eye-popping collection of lifelike dinosaurs in this theatrical performance. Families won't want to miss the stunts, tricks and comic antics of more than a dozen rescue dogs in the high-energy show, Chris Perondi's Stunt Dog Experience, and prepare to have your mind blown with four internationally acclaimed mentalists with Masters of the Mind.

"Regardless of what kind of performances you enjoy, you can "Experience the Arts" this season at NPAC," said Vicki Hudson, executive director of NPAC.
