Broadway In Columbia 2020 - 2021 Season
2020 - 2021

 

Out of an abundance of caution, Presenters and Broadway Touring Productions are adjusting tour dates to time periods we hope will be safer for the general public to experience their productions at full capacity. If you have already placed your order for Season Tickets, we have held it, in the order that it was received, until we were able to reschedule some of the performances. We will be contacting individuals that have reordered to confirm that they would like to proceed with the new dates before we process their orders.

We thank you for your patience and understanding as we continue to deal with these unprecedented times and we look forward to seeing you all back at the Koger Center when we are able to open our doors again.

The following shows are Season Specials that may be bought in addition to the 2020/2021 Season packages.

 

Jersey Boys*

February 21, 2021

They were just four guys from Jersey, until they sang their very first note. They had a sound nobody had ever heard… and the radio just couldn’t get enough of. But while their harmonies were perfect on stage, off stage it was a very different story -- a story that has made them an international sensation all over again.

Go behind the music and inside the story of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons in the Tony Award®-winning true-life musical phenomenon, JERSEY BOYS. From the streets of New Jersey to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, this is the musical that’s just too good to be true.

FEATURING THE LEGENDARY TOP TEN HITS:
“Sherry” • “Big Girls Don’t Cry” • “Walk Like A Man” • “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You” • “December, 1963 (Oh What A Night)” Jersey Boys

Is not recommended for all ages. The show contains smoke, gun shots, strobe lights, drug references, sexual situations and profane "authentic Jersey language."

* As this title is scheduled for a single performance, seat selection will be, by necessity, on a first come - first served basis. Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee your same seating. However, the earlier you purchase your season tickets, the more likely it is that you will get your same seating for this show.
