Connect2Culture is announcing the upcoming season lineup for the “Curtains Up” series.
For the 2018/2019 season, 5 shows will be presented to the public, instead of three as in previous years. Performances include an improv show called "Best Of... The Second City," "The Jazz Ambassadors of the United States Army Field Band," "the Ten Tenors" for a Christmas Special, "the Midtown Men," and Joplin's very own Grant Landis. Connect2Culture representatives expect a big turnout for the shows, helping boost Joplin's economy.
"They're going to stay in our hotels, and they're going to eat in our restaurants, and shop at our retailers, and buy their gas and their food and their groceries while they're here. We are going to be an economic engine for our community by bringing this kind of quality entertainment to Joplin,” says Clifford Wert.
