Broadway Musical, Phil Vassar Shows Rescheduled for Summer Dates at the Cole
March 31, 2020 – While many people have found creative ways to be entertained at home during this time of restrictive travel and gathering, the Cole Auditorium has confirmed new dates for the remaining two shows of the 2019-20 DeWitt Performing Arts Series.
Tickets purchased for the previous show dates will be honored for the new dates. Anyone who has misplaced tickets for either show should call the Cole Box Office at (910) 410-1691. Tickets are still available for both shows and can now be purchased online at www.richmondcc.edu/showtickets.
“We are grateful to be able to reschedule these two shows that are wrapping up the finale of the DeWitt Series, which has been bringing a variety of great performances to the Cole for over two decades,” said Cole Auditorium Director Joey Bennett. “We look forward to having people back in our state-of-the art facility, which is getting a facelift with fresh new paint and new carpet while events have been put on hold.”
‘An American in Paris’
“An American in Paris” is the new Tony Award®-winning musical about an American soldier, a mysterious French girl and an indomitable European city, each yearning for a new beginning in the aftermath of war. Acclaimed director/choreographer and 2015 Tony Award®-winner Christopher Wheeldon brings the magic and romance of Paris into perfect harmony with unforgettable songs from George and Ira Gershwin in the show that earned more awards than any other musical in the 2015 season.
