Time: 8:00 PM
Location: Coronado Performing Arts Center

Tickets

Men Are From Mars – Women Are From Venus LIVE!, the one-man fusion of theatre and stand-up starring Peter Story, is a light-hearted theatrical comedy based on the New York Times #1 best-selling book of the last decade by John Gray, is back by popular demand to the Coronado Performing Arts Center on Friday, February 6 at 8 pm. Moving swiftly through a series of vignettes, the show covers everything from dating and marriage to the bedroom. Tickets are now on sale at Ticketmaster.com. For tickets or more information, visit Coronadopac.org or call 815-968-5222.

Men Are From Mars – Women Are From Venus LIVE! is more than just the book.

After beginning in Paris in 2007, Men are From Mars–Women are From Venus LIVE! has been seen by more than one million people around Europe. It debuted in the United States in February 2013 in Raleigh, North Carolina and played at the Coronado Performing Arts Center on November 22, 2013 to capacity crowds!

This hysterical show will have couples elbowing each other all evening as they see themselves on stage. Sexy and fast paced, this show is definitely for adults, but will leave audiences laughing and giggling like little kids!

Starring in this theatrical comedy is PETER STORY. Peter has appeared in primetime shows on all three major networks--some of his favorite credits include CSI (directed by Quentin Tarantino), Without a Trace, Ugly Betty and recurring roles on Jay Leno’s The Tonight Show and Rob Lowe’s The Lyon’s Den.  He stars opposite Steve Guttenberg in the cheesy horror film, Cornered, and can be seen opposite Weed’s Elizabeth Perkins in the hilarious short, Le Chat Est Mort. 

He is a proud alum of the New Harmony Project and an avid storyteller with The Moth.

Peter's story of how he and his wife won a dream wedding competition was just featured nationally on NPR’s The Moth Radio Hour, a show featuring the country's best storytellers.

Commenting on the show, Peter said, “It's a great recipe for a night out: a little storytelling blended with some comedy and a dash of sage wisdom from the book. A delicious evening of entertainment.”

When Mars and Venus collide, the adventures are earth-shatteringly hysterical.

RSO Classics: Memories from Times of War featuring Amy Conn ::

RSO Classics: Memories from Times of War featuring Amy Conn Date: Saturday February 14, 2015
Time: 7:30 PM
Location: Coronado Performing Arts Center

Tickets

 The Good Soldier Schweik is a satirical Czech anti-War novel recounting the adventures of a hapless soldier in World War I, who Czechs adopted as their national personification. Czech/American composer Kurka wrote a darkly comic opera on Schweik, using a jazzy orchestra of only winds, brass and percussion.   Acclaimed soprano Amy Conn makes her RSO debut in three contrasting works. John Philip Sousa wrote a simple but moving setting of J.D. McRae’s famous poem, “In Flanders Fields the Poppies Grow”, honoring the thousands of anonymous war victims buried there. Barber’s dramatic setting of text by William Agee hearkens back to a rural America as yet unscarred by World Wars. Glière’s unusual concerto, written shortly after World War II, offers a dazzling display of the coloratura voice. Ravel ostensibly wrote his Tombeau as a tribute to baroque composer François Couperin, but dedicated its movements to friends who had died in World War I.

Renowned foodist and television personality Alton Brown today announced the return of Alton Brown Live! The Edible Inevitable Tour, on the heels of the successful inaugural run to 46 US cities.  Over 100,000 tickets were sold for the Food Network star’s show, featuring a pinch of comedy, talk show antics, a multimedia lecture, live music (he sings!) and a dash of "extreme" food experimentation (ponchos are provided for those in the first few rows), and of course...puppets.  Enthusiastic fans and critics have raved about the interactive component where Brown invites audience members on stage to serve as his assistant. 

Brown will bring Alton Brown Live! The Edible Inevitable Tour to Rockford’s CoronadoPerformingArtsCenter on Sunday, February 15, 2015. Tickets are on sale June 6 at 10AM and are available at the Coronado Performing Arts Center Box Office, Coronadopac.org, and Ticketmaster.com.

“We have combined science, music, food, and a few other things no one in his right mind would allow me to do on TV, into a two hour extravaganza that’s fun for the whole family,” says Brown.  He has been cultivating the show’s material for about a decade and wrote most of the musical numbers which all take a comedic look at food.

Brown, author of seven books including the James Beard award winning “I’m Just Here for the Food” and New York Times bestselling sequence “Good Eats,” has hosted numerous food series including “Iron Chef America.”  He currently serves as host on the game show “Cutthroat Kitchen” and as a mentor/judge on “Food Network Star,” which premiers its 10th season on June 1st.  Brown created, produced and hosted the Peabody award winning series “Good Eats” for 13 years on Food Network, which still can be seen on the Cooking Channel.

RSO Classics: An American Salute ::

RSO Classics: An American Salute Date: Saturday March 28, 2015
Time: 7:30 PM
Location: Coronado Performing Arts Center

Tickets

Gould’s famous American Salute, an electrifying set of variations on the Civil War tune, “When Johnny Comes Marching Home,” leads to a touching remembrance of Americans, whether Union or Confederate, who lost their lives in the Civil War. A commission by the Philadelphia Orchestra produced a rare partnership of two young composers who created this work in 2003. Copland’s final symphony, premiered in 1946, captures in sound the confidence of the World’s undisputed superpower, post-war America, building a thrilling climax from Copland’s own “Fanfare for the Common Man.”
