Actors Guild of Lexington will revive its June production of Tommy – The Concert in the city’s newest performance venue, the MoonDance at Midnight Pass amphitheatre at Beamont Center, on Aug. 8.
“When we started building this, we reached out to arts groups and asked them to come out and look at what we were doing,” developer Andy Haymaker said. “Eric Seale from Actors Guild came out, and at the time they were doing Tommy, and he said this would be a great place to present it.”
Tommy was originally presented at Buster’s Billiards and Backroom in early June. The production features the Johnson Brothers Band. This will be the inaugural event at the amphitheater.
Gates open at 6 p.m. and showtime is 7:30 at the amphitheatre on Beaumont Circle. Tickets are $18 adults, $15 students and are available by calling 1-866-811-4111, visiting www.actorsguildoflexington.org or at the gate. Blankets, chairs and food and drink are all welcome.
