The Fairfield Community Arts Center will continue its performing arts season with a spring line-up of big performances.
“Our spring line-up kicks off on Fri., Jan. 27 with ‘The Boomer Boys Musical.” We have an Off-Broadway cast coming to Fairfield, so that’s really exciting,” said David Sheldrick, marketing specialist for Fairfield Parks & Recreation. “The season goes through May, and we will close with The Trippin Billies, which is the nation’s foremost Dave Matthews tribute band. We have performances coming up for everybody in the next couple of months.”
There are performances that will appeal to seniors, classic rock fans, those that appreciate the hits of Carole King, and Kenny Ahern will present a show for the whole family.
“We have an exciting season coming up, and everybody is going to want to be here,” Sheldrick said.
