Live Entertainment and Lush History

103 123
The Great Falls Civic Center was built just after one of America's most troubling times.
This entertainment and conference venue rose from the ashes of the Great Depression, a direct result of Franklin D.
Roosevelt's New Deal.
The Work Projects Administration, or WPA, made the Civic Center possible when the organization was created in 1935.
The most popular part of the Civic Center is the plush Mansfield Theater.
It can be adapted to any form of production, such as opera, rock concerts, musicals, plays, lectures, ballet, conventions, and road shows.
This 1782-seat theater was built with great care and features beautiful architecture.
The acoustics at the Mansfield Theater are better than any other venue in the state.
It is a truly elegant entertainment hall that will whisk you back in time to the exciting 1940's.
And speaking of exciting, the theater prides itself on providing some amazing and inventive productions.
October will bring to life the Great Falls Concert Association's presentation of Rhythm and Passion.
This promises to be a thrilling tale about the creation of some of our most passionate dances: the salsa, the tango, and the gaucho.
The production runs for one night only, so be sure to reserve your seats as soon as possible, so that you don't miss out on this amazing experience.
All tickets are $30 per person.
In November, the Great Falls Community Concert Association will present Chris Brubeck's Triple Play.
This concert will feature three stellar musicians, who will bring folk, blues, jazz, funk, and classical music to the state of the Mansfield Theater.
These seats are also $30 per person, so you will want to reserve early to get the best seats possible.
Michelle Burger, an internationally known mezzo-soprano and current resident of Great Falls, will present an evening of glorious opera on February 4, 2011.
The Cascade Quartet and Chinook Winds will perform as well, both in accompaniment, and in performances of their own.
It is not an evening that should be missed.
As always, seating is by reservation, and tickets are $30.
This is only a very small sampling of the entertainment that the Mansfield Theater has planned for the upcoming seasons.
If you are interested in checking out other top-notch presentations, then be sure to check the theater's calendar.
You will find a wide and varied array of musical and dramatic performances that will keep you entertained well into a new year.
