CAJUN MUSIC, A CAPELLA, AND MORE HIGHLIGHT 2001-02 NEXSTAR SERIES

LA CROSSE, Wis.—Featuring performances based on popular culture, Viterbo University’s hip NexStar series is entering its second year of programming, following on the heels of a successful first season.

The 2001-02 NexStar events, held in the Fine Arts Center Main Theatre, include:

  • Rockapella, Tuesday, Oct. 23, 7:30 p.m.—Rockapella is the hottest and most hip a capella group to hit the airwaves in years. Flawless harmonies and the distinct stamp of ’90s funk prove they’re about to make it big with their magical talents.
  • I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change, Saturday, Feb. 2, 7:30 p.m.—This new, off-Broadway musical revue is a bright, refreshing look at what everyone has felt about relationships but was afraid to admit. Written with style, wit, and a fabulous score, it will have you humming along and chuckling away.
  • Riders in the Sky, Saturday, March 2, 7:30 p.m.—As America’s favorite cowboys step up to the microphone, the magic begins for these romantic, comical, and whimsical men. Join this Grammy award-winning group as they hit the trail for the old west.
  • BeauSoleil avec Michael Doucet, Tuesday, March 26, 7:30 p.m.—BeauSoleil, the best Cajun band in the world, according to Garrison Keillor, is celebrating the 25th anniversary of its special blend of Cajun with elements of zydeco, New Orleans jazz, Tex-Mex, country, blues, and more.

Featuring four different events during each season, NexStar is a distinctly different series from Viterbo’s popular Bright Star Season. The NexStar performances are influenced by modern comedy, music, and theatre from a variety of top performing artists from around the globe.

Season tickets are on sale now. Individual tickets will be available beginning Aug. 23. For additional information on NexStar performances, please contact the Viterbo Fine Arts Center Box Office at 608-796-3100.
