Don’t Miss Out on Your Chance to ROCK THE ARTS

Posted on August 23, 2019
What do you get when five of the biggest names in art and culture in Little Rock combine forces? You get ROCK THE ARTS, the ultimate ticket package that gets you the best seats at five of Little Rock’s best performances. 

The Arkansas Repertory Theatre, Arkansas Symphony Orchestra, Celebrity Attractions, Ballet Arkansas and Opera In The Rock have joined together to offer a ticket package like no other – for one fee you’ll get a ticket to a knockout performance hosted by each organization. 

Not convinced? Check out the incredible productions included in the package:

MILLION DOLLAR QUARTET
Arkansas Repertory Theatre - September 7, 2019 – 2:00 p.m.

Four musical legends. A one-in-a-million recording session. On December 4, 1956, in the studios of Sun Records in Memphis, Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins, and Jerry Lee Lewis gathered to meet with legendary producer Sam Philips. What happened next was pure rock and roll magic. A casual introduction of Lewis to Perkins unexpectedly evolved into an epic jam session of country, gospel and rock classics, captured on tape but not released until 1981.

BEETHOVEN & BLUE JEANS
Arkansas Symphony Orchestra at Robinson Performance Hall – November 9, 2019 – 7:30 p.m.

 
Explore the rich musical heritage of Arkansas with a pairing of composers with local roots – William Grant Still and Florence Price – with Beethoven's groundbreaking Symphony No. 3, “Eroica." Pianist Karen Walwyn, a specialist in the piano works of Florence Price, and guest conductor Andrew Grams take the stage with your ASO for BEETHOVEN AND BLUE JEANS.
 
WICKED
Celebrity Attractions at Robinson Performance Hall – January 2, 2020 – 7:30 p.m.

 
So much happened before Dorothy dropped in. WICKED, the Broadway sensation, looks at what happened in the Land of Oz…but from a different angle.  Long before Dorothy arrives, there is another young woman, born with emerald-green skin—smart, fiery, misunderstood, and possessing an extraordinary talent. When she meets a bubbly blonde who is exceptionally popular, their initial rivalry turns into the unlikeliest of friendships…until the world decides to call one “good,” and the other one “wicked.”

MASTER/WORKS
Ballet Arkansas at UA-Pulaski Tech CHARTS Theater – April 26, 2020 - 2:30 p.m.

 
Filled with works by choreographic luminaries, MASTER/WORKS combines the best of live music and cutting-edge contemporary dance with celebrated classical repertory. Sponsored by the Stella Boyle Smith Trust, MASTER/WORKS is the 3rd installment of a 3-year concert series designed to elevate the art form within the region. 

LA TRAVIATA
Opera In The Rock at the Arkansas Repertory Theatre – May 31, 2020 - 2:30 p.m.


OITR’s production of this glamorous and dramatic opera in three acts will be set in Hollywood during the 1940’s, with the leading soprano role, Violetta, sung by Arkansas native Keely Futterer. 


From music to theatre and even opera and dance, the ROCK THE ARTS package has a little something for everyone, and at just $223 (that’s a 25% savings), you won’t find a better deal in town.
