Are you wondering what's happening at the Yavapai Community College Performance Hall in April? Well, look no further, because here's what's on the schedule:

“The Mikado” (with live orchestra):

Friday, April 18, 7:30 p.m.
Co-sponsor: The Daily Courier and PACE.
Tickets: $35/$33/$31.

Carl Rosa Opera’s new production of “The Mikado, ” which includes a live orchestra, is a faithful re-creation of the original authorized Savoy production of 1885. This amusing, entertaining opera tells the tale of two young lovers, Nanki-Poo and Yum-Yum, who face many obstacles in their quest to be together. Gilbert’s authenticated prompt book has been the source for the direction, staging, and choreography of this production.

The Lowe Family:

Friday, April 25, 7:30 p.m.
Co-Sponsors: City of Prescott/Acker Trust, KDDL 94.3 FM, KKLD 95.9 FM/KQST 102.9 FM, and PACE.

This high-energy, fast-paced variety show will leave you breathless.

 

“Swinging with the Big Band” starring Patti Page:

Saturday, April 26, 3 p.m.
Co-Sponsors: The Daily Courier, KKLD 95.9 FM, Residence Inn by Marriott and PACE.
Tickets: $38/$36/$34.
