A Lot To Offer | Highlands PAC
Proving the wisdom of that old show biz adage, “The Show Must Go On!,” the Highlands Performing Arts Center keeps the plates spinning in this strange year. For announcements in titles, dates and scheduling, visit highlandsperformingarts.com.
Parkin’ at the PAC, Ray’s Drive-up outdoor movie venue, has brought a whole new level of offerings the PAC can present to you during this time of Covid restricted limits on gatherings.
Great Art on Screen is presented by PAC and The Bascom, A Center for Visual Arts.
November’s offering is on Thursday, November 5: Maverick Modigliani. Marking the centenary of the death of Amedeo Modigliani (1884-1920), this documentary is the story of a remarkable talent that transcended stereotypes. From his origins in Livorno, Italy, to the Paris of Picasso and Brancusi that became the center of modernity. The film depicts the life and work of an avant-garde artist who has become a contemporary classic.
Movies will continue on Friday and Saturday nights in November. Since Covid cancelled the Highlands Food & Wine Festival, the weekend of November 13-14 will bring our own celebration of food and wine with two curated food & wine films. Please check the PAC website for the November titles – highandsperformingarts.com.
The PAC auditorium is now allowed to seat 25 lucky people to view the MET Opera and the National Theatre of London encore performances. At 1:00 P.M. Saturday, November 7, The Met Opera presents Il Trovatore, originally broadcast on October 3, 2015.
On Sunday, November 15, at 3:00 P.M., The National Theatre will present Hansard. This is a two-handed play full of witty banter and stinging one liners. Set against the political landscape of 1980’s Thatcher Britain, what starts out as personal digs between a married couple after work on a Friday night crashes into political judgments that bring secrets from the past spilling out of the closet.
There is one concert left on the books for 2020! The Friday after Thanksgiving at 7:30 P.M., PAC will present Sideline. Sideline is a pedigreed six-piece powerhouse whose style has set the pace in Bluegrass for over two decades. Listening to Sideline reminds us of why so many people fall in love with Bluegrass in the first place – pulse-pounding drive, songs sung from the heart, perfected timing and dynamics.
