’s Summer Entertainment Series continues with two events remaining.
Tonight, Pollard Greens Orchestra is set to play favorites from the past, and Jim Dunham and Jim Dorsett on Sept. will perform Trails Plowed Under, a show based on the life of Western artist Charlie Russell. Both shows, which include a cash bar, come with a buffet dinner. Tickets are $25 for museum members and $30 for not-yet members.
“The Summer Entertainment Series is a great way for our members and guests to enjoy a great dinner theater experience,” Booth Director Seth Hopkins said in a press release. “We also encourage attendees to arrive early to see the museum and view the three outstanding temporary exhibitions currently on view.”
Pollard Greens Orchestra
Pollard Greens Orchestra will play favorites from the 30s, 40s, 50s and 60s and connect the musical selections to historic events in our history. With front man John Pollard on saxophone, along with a keyboardist, drummer, bass player and vocalist, Pollard Greens Orchestra is a talented jazz ensemble. Heavy hors d’oeuvres will be served at 6:30 p.m. and the band will play from 7 to 9 p.m. Dancing is encouraged.
'Trails Plowed Under'
Jim Dunham and Jim Dorsett's Trails Plowed Under features Dunham painting and performing as famous Western artist Charlie Russell. During the show, Dunham will complete a copy of one of Russell’s paintings and recite favorite passages from Russell’s book Trails Plowed Under.
As he paints, Dorsett will perform Western songs related to Russell's work. The evening begins at 6:30 pm with a buffet-style dinner, and all attendees will have the chance to win the painting Dunham completes during the performance.
