VocaPeople an a capella group at the CraterianThis internationally renowned vocal ensemble takes the art of a capella singing into the stratosphere. But then that’s only natural: they claim to be extraterrestrials from a planet where people communicate exclusively through music. Whatever their origin (rumor has it they’re actually from Israel), Voca People produces a truly intergalactic sound by melding soaring vocals and beat-box wizardry. You’ve never seen or heard anything like them! Presented by: Craterian Performances 6 February 2013 at 7:30 PM

This final installment in the Nunsense franchise — perhaps the most successful series in theater history — stars Cindy Williams, better known as “Shirley” to fans of the long-running TV sitcom Laverne and Shirley. In Nunset Boulevard, the Little Sisters of Hoboken are thrilled to be invited to sing at the Hollywood Bowl — until they discover that the venue is actually the Hollywood Bowl-a-Rama Bowling Alley. Hijinks, both comical and musical, of course ensue. Go here for more information on the nunsensical (sorry couldn't resist) revue. 24 January 2013 at 7:30 PM Presented by: Craterian Performances
Posted by:Ellen | Posted on: January 11th, 2013 | 0 Comments[caption id="attachment_2719" align="alignright" width="175"] Rock of Ages, a musical comedy[/caption] "Rock of Ages" a musical comedy. The critics call it “cheerfully cheesy,” “splendidly silly” and “insanely fun.” They hail it as a “frenzied, foot-stomping sexy smash.” And really, who could resist a big Broadway musical built around such classic ‘80s rock hits as “Don’t Stop Believin’,” “Can’t Fight This Feeling,” and “I Want to Know What Love Is”? Featuring big egos, big guitar solos, and even bigger hair, Rock of Ages will have you both laughing and rocking — often at the same time! Go here for more information on this smashing Broadway musical. 18 January 2013 at 7:30 PM Presented by: Craterian Performances
