The Glema Mahr Center for the Arts is excited to announce our Fall 2014 lineup including Lyle Lovett & His Large Band, country artist Chris Young, actor Stephen Lang, and Little River Band. The split-season schedule will make it easier for package buyers, and it will give the Glema Center to flexibility of waiting until the fall to finalize our Spring schedule so we can take advantage of last minute routing opportunities so we can keep our ticket prices down. We were able to do this for our Fall season, and we are thrilled that we are able to bring in four acts that could be a Headliner for any Season!

Lyle Lovett & His Large Band 7 p.m. Sunday, August 10, 2014 (Note special time)
A singer, composer and actor, Lyle Lovett has broadened the definition of American music in a career that spans 14 albums. Coupled with his gift for storytelling, the Texas-based musician fuses elements of country, swing, jazz, folk, gospel and blues in a convention-defying manner that breaks down barriers. Garden & Gun recently called Lovett “one of America’s most beloved singer/songwriters,” and he was featured in the coveted “What I’ve Learned” column in the February 2012 issue of Esquire. Since his self-titled debut in 1986, Lyle Lovett has evolved into one of music’s most vibrant and iconic performers. His rich and eclectic body of work is one of the most beloved of any living artist today.

William Shakespeare's "Much Ado About Nothing” Presented by Cambridge American Stage Tour - 7 p.m. Thursday, September 11, 2014
Now in its fifteenth year, Cambridge University's Cambridge American Stage Tour, established under the patronage of Dame Judi Dench, has been performing to packed houses and critical acclaim. Each September, Cambridge's most talented actors, directors, designers and technicians travel across the Atlantic to bring a Shakespeare play to colleges, high schools and professional theatres. This year's production, Much Ado About Nothing, will be directed by Emily Burns. The Cambridge American Stage Tour says of this year’s play: “Filled with live music, a line-up of vibrant characters and sparkling dialogue, this is Shakespeare’s comedic skill at its absolute best. As devious strategies are prepared, sides drawn and redrawn, and untruth after untruth exposed, the outcome of each romantic match is just too close to call — at least until the final hand has been shown!”
