The Compassion Experience: Spartanburg, SC @ Crossroads Baptist Church
Mar 22 @ 11:00 am – Mar 25 @ 7:00 pm

Ever wonder what life is really like in other parts of the world? What if you could experience it for yourself — without leaving Spartanburg?

The Compassion Experience will bring you as close to another country and culture as you can get without a passport. This interactive, immersive display allows you to step into the life of a child who has suffered under the crippling weight of poverty.

But the journey does not end there.

In the span of 20 minutes, you will travel with that child from hardship to hope. And in the midst of hope, you will see that child’s story transformed through the support of Compassion and the child’s life-giving relationship with a sponsor. Don’t miss this life-changing event brought to you by Compassion International and Sugar Land Baptist Church.

Free and appropriate for all ages. Make a reservation at this link: https://cts.compassion.com/events/1205. Walk-ins are also welcome.

ABOUT SOUL INTENT:
Soul Intent is a six piece cover band formed in 2011 and are based in Spartanburg, SC. This upbeat band performs Motown and R&B classics including music from Sly and the Family Stone, Aretha Franklin, and Mother’s Finest. The band members are seasoned musicians consisting of Erika Moore, lead vocalist. Jesse Madden, drums, vocals, saxophonist. Chuck Wilson, bassist, vocals. Terry Hilliard, guitarist. Cliff Williford, keyboardist, vocals, and Melvin Cunningham, percussionist, vocals.

ABOUT BRANDY LINDSEY & JAMISON SMITH
Dan Armonaitis of Spartanburg Herald-Journal has described Brandy’s music as, “an impressive mix of folk-tinged Americana and vintage-flavored jangle pop.” When Jamison isn’t singing and playing electric guitar with her in Brandy Lindsey and the Punch, he can be found leading his own bands—M27 and Big Folk—doing anything from original folk songs to covers. He also is the founder and host of Sunday Songwriters, now it it’s 12th year. On special occasions, the two play stripped-down versions of their songs as a duo, blending harmonies and guitar work.

Dear Evan Hansen @ Belk Theater at Blumenthal Performing Arts Center
Mar 24 @ 1:30 pm – 4:00 pm

WINNER OF SIX 2017 TONY® AWARDS INCLUDING BEST MUSICAL
AND THE 2018 GRAMMY® AWARD FOR BEST MUSICAL THEATER ALBUM.

A letter that was never meant to be seen, a lie that was never meant to be told, a life he never dreamed he could have. Evan Hansen is about to get the one thing he’s always wanted: a chance to finally fit in. DEAR EVAN HANSEN is the deeply personal and profoundly contemporary musical about life and the way we live it.

“One of the most remarkable shows in musical theater history,” says The Washington Post. The New York Times calls DEAR EVAN HANSEN “a gut-punching, breathtaking knockout of a musical” and NBC News says that the musical is “an inspiring anthem resonating on Broadway and beyond.”

DEAR EVAN HANSEN features a book by Tony Award winner Steven Levenson, a score by Grammy®, Tony® and Academy Award® winners Benj Pasek and Justin Paul (La La Land, The Greatest Showman), and direction by four-time Tony Award nominee Michael Greif (Rent, Next to Normal).

The Original Broadway Cast Recording of DEAR EVAN HANSEN, produced by Atlantic Records, made an extraordinary debut at #8 on the Billboard 200– the highest charting debut position for an original cast album since 1961 — and went on to win the 2018 Grammy Award for Best Musical Theater Album. A special edition coffee table book authored by Levenson, Pasek and Paul, Dear Evan Hansen: through the window (Grand Central Publishing / Melcher) is now available, offering an in-depth, all-access look at the musical, including never-before-seen production photos and cast portraits, behind-the-scenes stories, and a fully annotated script by the authors.

On sale now with a PNC Broadway Lights series ticket! Call 704-335-1010 for season subscription information or visit BlumenthalArts.org/Broadway
