Many local residents such as you have experienced The Smith Center in numerous ways since our doors first opened. Whether you have enjoyed world-class performances in our theaters, shared special occasions on our campus, or seen your children inspired by our education and outreach opportunities – you have felt how The Smith Center has changed our community’s cultural landscape.

Starring Broadway’s Finest

Reflecting our benchmark opening night on March 10, 2012 that featured a lineup of Broadway stars, our 5th Anniversary Concert will showcase performances by Broadway’s finest, as well as special appearances by a few surprise guests as they relive The Smith Center’s proudest moments.

Broadway stars Adam Kantor (“Rent,” “Fiddler on the Roof,” “Next to Normal”) and Betsy Wolfe (“Bullets Over Broadway,” “Falsettos”) will emcee the event. Keith Thompson will take the helm as musical director and lead conductor.

We hope you and your friends and family will join us on March 7 to look back on our first five years through an unforgettable evening of song and storytelling.
