Theater in the Hills of Central Massachusetts
When someone mentions theater, most people think Broadway.
here in Massachusetts people think Boston.
However there is a wonderful gem of a theater right here in the center of Massachusetts called The Cultural Center at Eagle Hill. The Cultural Center is actually two theaters, designed to be state of the art and used for top name productions as well as a teaching tool for Eagle Hill students. The large Abbey Theater is truly impressive seating 463 people along with spaces for six wheelchairs. The smaller Kresge Studio Theater is a small versatile place, perfect for more intimate performances.
The Cultural Center, which opened on November 1, 2008 with a Jane Monheit concert, is about to launch it's third season with a fantastic line-up of performers starting with the Annie Moses Band: Pilgrims and Prodigals.
Led by lead singer and violinist, Annie Wolaver, this talented family band includes her six siblings: Alex, viola; Benjamin, cello; Camille, harp and keyboard; Gretchen, violin and/mandolin; and Jeremiah on guitar. Annie's parents, Bill and Robin Wolaver, are veteran award winning song writers whose talents contribute to this dynamic group. The group performs original music with roots in folk, classical, gospel, pop, and jazz. Featured in two exclusive PBS specials and with a national performance schedule of over 80 concerts a year, this is a show not to be missed and a great way to kick off the third season at the Cultural Center.
