JUST ANNOUNCED: 2024 Summer Concerts

Join us as we welcome Broadway’s rising star, Julie Benko, to the SCA theater for an exclusive performance nestled between the hits Beautiful: The Carole King Musical and Million Dollar Quartet. And that’s not all – we’re ending the summer on a high note with the infectious sounds of Dustbowl Revival, gracing our outdoor stage with their joyful melodies.

Jump into Summer

Featuring Joe Hertler + The Rainbow Seekers

Friday, June 7 | 5:00 pm

Did you save the date yet?  We’re coming back again with the biggest FREE party of the year at Jump into Summer, highlighting all the things that make our little corner of the globe so creatively intriguing! We’ll welcome another incredible Michigan summer with big entertainment, bold imagination, and buckets of joy.

Doors open at 5:00 pm and hands-on activities begin with professional artists! Dust off those dancing shoes from a winter in the closet because the stage will be rocking all night long with beloved musicians including headliner Joe Hertler + The Rainbow Seekers, who “will take you across the mountains of Motown, through the fjords of folk, over the archipelagos of Americana, and-at last-into a funky firth, where only the fiercest of friendships can be found.”

Standby, Me

In the Theater with Julie Benko

Saturday, July 20 | 7:00 pm

When Julie Benko became the standby for Fanny Brice in the hugely anticipated 2023 revival of Funny Girl, she could not have anticipated that she would take her bow as Broadway’s newest breakout star. Joined by her husband Jason Yeager on piano, Julie reflects on the journey leading to her meteoric rise, sharing songs and behind-the-scenes stories of her days understudying in Les Misérables, Fiddler on the Roof, Spring Awakening, and more. From Broadway classics (“People” and “Matchmaker”) to jazz standards (“Twisted”), to contemporary favorites (“What’s Gonna Happen” and “I Dreamed A Dream”), Standby, Me offers an evening of spectacular vocals, theatrical lore, and inspiration for all the greatest stars-to-be.

Dustbowl Revival

Outdoor Concert on the Plaza

Thursday, September 12 | 7:00 pm

Join us in the plaza at the SCA for an outdoor concert featuring American roots jam band, Dustbowl Revival. Known for their joyful, booty-shaking soul songs and cut-to-the-heart folk-rock ballads that lift up their transcendent live shows. End your summer on a joyful note with the uplifting sounds of Dustbowl Revival. Guests can choose to mingle and dance the show away with a general admission ticket, bring your own chair, or snag one of our four exclusive box seats.

As always, this wouldn’t be possible without the support of our incredible sponsors.
