Coming spring of 2022 to the Campus Theatre: it's the Live from Lewisburg Variety Show!
The producers of the Live from Lewisburg Variety Show would like to, once again, thank our audience and sponsors for making our November premiere such a success! We also would like to share an update about our next show.
The Live from Lewisburg Variety Show was created, in part, to celebrate being together in person – something so essential to all of us, and so missed during the pandemic shutdown in 2020 and early 2021. We were thrilled to be able to safely gather in November.
With the wide-spread nature of the Omicron variant, we feel that gathering in person in large numbers is more complicated at this time – and consequently, we have decided to delay the next Live from Lewisburg Variety Show until Spring.
In the meantime, we are accepting audition submissions for those that may be interested in performing with us in the Spring. We’ll make an announcement once we have a firm show date, but if you’d like to submit a video for us please visit https://www.livefromlewisburg.com/auditions.
We look forward to welcoming you when we can all safely gather once again.
Collaboration - The Arts - Community
At the heart of the Live from Lewisburg Variety Show is a message and ideal of community. We're drawing inspiration from the history of the arts and theatres, hearkening to a time when the community theatre was truly the center stage for news and entertainment. We firmly believe that even in the darkest of troubled times, arts and entertainment can be our guiding light to a better tomorrow, and we can all work together to lift that light up for all to see!
We are thrilled to be partnering with two fellow organizations - the Campus Theatre and the Lewisburg Downtown Partnership - to bring this performance to our community. We're also showcasing local artists and the show is receiving patronage and sponsorship from local businesses.
We are so thrilled to have had two great years of summer concerts with the LIVE! from Lewisburg series. These concerts truly did capture the vision we had of enabling our community to celebrate music and the arts together in a safe way. We adapted to the challenges of the Covid-19 pandemic, inviting friends and neighbors to listen to local musicians in our outdoor spaces. Through the darkness and uncertainty of these many months, we refused to give up what is most important: our sense of togetherness.
Now, as we are rounding a corner in the darkness, we think that 2022 will be our time to step INTO THE LIGHT. To that end, we are excited to announce we are partnering with nationally beloved singer-songwriter and motivational speaker KJ Reimensnyder-Wagner. KJ is well-known for her positivity and the diversity of her songs, having a smile and music for everyone and every occasion. It’s that positive outlook that we are hoping to make the centerpiece of our new LIVE! from Lewisburg: Into the Light concert series!
Creating a safe opportunity for community gathering is still at the heart of our mission, and with the changes to the pandemic and health guidelines, we believe we can safely move the LIVE! from Lewisburg concerts to indoor venues. With that in mind, we are creating a new vision for these concerts as more intimate and resonant performances by local artists. We are working with Lewisburg's beautiful churches to hold concerts in their sanctuaries, inviting people to see the wonderful architecture and art in these buildings and to enjoy the deep acoustics they can offer. We hope to have a variety of musical genres, from pianists, to jazz and blues, to vocal groups, and more - anyone who can make the most of the beauty these spaces can offer. And, as always, the concerts will be free to the public!
We are currently looking for performers or ideas for performances for this incredible new LIVE! from Lewisburg: Into the Light series. If you or anyone you know might be interested in performing in these beautiful sanctuaries, please contact Cynthia Peltier by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
