Springfield Symphony Hall going to the dogs - and cats

The stage of Symphony Hall in Springfield will be "going to the dogs," literally, on April 22, when the mini circus-like Popovich Pet Theater – mixing animal tricks, clowning, juggling, and balancing – takes over the popular performance hall.

"Our main actors are pets, house pets like dogs, cats and parrots, that have been saved from animal shelters. We call ourselves a pet theater because we build small sketches around the animals who are acting out scenes," said Gregory Popovich.

In the show, audiences will see animals acting out scenarios like:

- Passengers waiting to board a train and sneaking on without tickets
- Students in a classroom sitting behind their desks
- Patients waiting to be seen by a doctor.

"But, this isn't a show just for pet lovers. It's for anyone....a variety act with European-style physical comedy and, of course, the pets. My daughter, Anastasia, also performs in the show along with several other talented performers" said Popovich.

Elvis tribute coming to CityStage

April 14, 2015

If Elvis were alive today he would be 80 years old.

But, don't worry, that's not the age he will be depicted at in the Matt Lewis: Long Live the King show coming to CityStage for three days beginning April 23.

Instead, Lewis, star of Legends in Concert at the Imperial Palace in Las Vegas, will portray Elvis in his prime - from his early years of swiveling hips through the movie years and his '68 black leather comeback special on television to his white jump suit days in Las Vegas.

"My favorite period in Elvis' career is in 1968 when his comeback special ran on television. My voice emulates his voice at that time, and my favorite song is 'If I Can Dream,' which is also in my show," said Lewis about the song which was performed as the finale of his' 68 comeback special on NBC television.

'Live From Nashville' coming to CityStage

April 6, 2015
(As originally seen on MassLive by Keith O'Connor)

All the sights and sounds of Nashville will come alive on April 17 at CityStage in Springfield, when "Live from Nashville," created by Matt Davenport Productions, celebrates the songs that gave Music City its name.

The high-octane show, based from country's rural roots to sold-out stadiums, will feature music from Jimmy Rogers, Patsy Cline to country rockers like The Eagles, as well as Brooks & Dunn, Garth Brooks , Lady Antebellum, Taylor Swift and others.

Brittney Jones, one of four singers in the show, took time out from the road to answer questions about the show and her own career in country music.

What will audiences see when they attend "Live from Nashville?"

We walk audiences through the decades of music from the 50s to now, singing songs from artists such as Patsy Cline, Tammy Wynette, Hank Williams, Reba McEntire, Garth Brooks, Jason Aldean, Carrie Underwood, and Taylor Swift. There is also a little dialogue. We introduce the songs and mention what role they played in country music history. We do change costumes, but we don't change to look closer to the artists. We stay true to who we are as our own artist. We put our own twists on each song, singing them the way we would, not the way the original artists do necessarily. There are times where we are all on stage. There are nine of us in total - five band members and four singer/dancers.
