Great Lakes Center For The Arts Announces Summer & Fall Season For Dreamers

Great Lakes Center for the Arts announces a thrilling lineup for the 2024 Summer & Fall season—A Season for Dreamers—featuring performances that will entertain, inspire, and transport audiences to a world of imagination and wonder. Subscription packages are on sale now, with single tickets becoming available in waves on May 1, June 1, and July 1.

From May through October, the Center is set to present performances for the dreamer in everyone, including world-renowned a cappella vocal ensemble The King’s Singers, Hollywood royalty Lucie Arnaz, Gala headliners The Temptations and The Four Tops, the Broadway sensation Mamma Mia!, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, and encore performances by Christ Botti and LeAnn Rimes, just to name a few.

“Opening weekend at the Center is always a celebration, and this summer is no exception,” said Executive Director Matthew Kacergis. “We’re kicking it off with the legendary Preservation Hall Jazz Band. Hailing from the heart of the French Quarter of New Orleans, this ensemble has been the heartbeat and soundtrack of The Big Easy for more than 60 years.”

“While I am looking forward to all of the events in the upcoming season, I am especially excited about a special project premiering in June,” Kacergis continued. “‘When You Wish’ will be a soaring musical tribute to 100 years of magic with original arrangements of Disney’s greatest hits created just for the Center. Patrons of all ages are invited to relive the moments that shaped our childhoods and taught us to dream. We have a few surprises planned that will make for a very memorable experience for the whole family.”
