Chautauqua Theater Company: Airness
by Chelsea Marcantel

7/14/2018 - 7/29/2018

Venue: Bratton Theater

When Nina enters her first air guitar competition, she thinks winning will be easy. But as she befriends a group of charismatic nerds all committed to becoming the next champion, she discovers that there's more to this art form than playing pretend, it's about finding yourself in your favorite songs, and performing with raw joy. Airness is an exuberant reminder that everything we need to rock is already within us.
By the writer of the beloved 2016 NPW "Tiny Houses" returns to CTC with her newest play, straight from her triumph at The Humana Festival of New Plays.

The Peking Acrobats®,

7/25/2018 - 07:30pm

Venue: Amphitheater

For the last 32 years, The Peking Acrobats? have redefined audience perceptions of Chinese acrobatics. Accompanied by live musicians performing on traditional Chinese instruments, the acrobats perform daring maneuvers atop a precarious pagoda of chairs and display their technical prowess at such arts as trick cycling, precision tumbling, juggling, somersaulting and gymnastics. They push the limits of human ability, defying gravity with amazing displays of contortion, flexibility and control. The time-honored Chinese music coalesces with high-tech special effects and awe-inspiring acrobatic feats, creating an exuberant entertainment event with the festive pageantry of a Chinese carnival.

The naive young hero, Candide, is plagued by an endless series of bizarre comedic disasters on his globe-spanning search for the true meaning of life. Based on the sharply satirical story of innocence lost by Voltaire, Leonard Bernstein's darkly funny operetta receives its company debut, joining the centennial celebration of the composer's birth. With a delightfully tuneful score, including highlights such as "Glitter and be Gay" and "Make our Garden Grow," Candide truly offers audiences "the best of all possible worlds."

Preferred 1 seating is limited. Please purchase by phone, (716) 357-6250, or walk-up.
