In three very special performances, the Culver City High School AVPA Music program will present Jazz Cabaret: Two Acts, Two Spaces, One Jazzy Night, Jan. 22-24. The first half of the program will take place in the Robert Frost Auditorium. There, featured vocalists will perform big band hits like Moondance, The Lady is a Tramp, and Come Fly with Me with the full Jazz Ensemble. The event will then move to the more intimate space of the Sony Pictures Theatre, where vocalists will be backed by the Jazz Combo in a selection of standards including My Funny Valentine, Come Rain or Come Shine, Night and Day, and The Girl from Ipanema.
Act One will be free to the public with no ticket required. Because of limited seating in the smaller venue, there will be a ticket charge for Act Two. Performance times for Act One are 7 p.m. on Friday and Saturday evenings, Jan. 22 and 23, and 1 pm. on Sunday, Jan. 24. Act Two will begin approximately one hour after Act One.
Tickets are $15 for adults; $10 for seniors, CCUSD staff and high school students; and $5 for CCHS students with ASB cards and CCMS students. Children in elementary school and younger will be admitted for free but must have a seat reservation. Advance purchase is highly recommended; tickets are available online at www.eventbrite.com/e/jazz-cabaret-tickets-20191557492 (or use short url: https://goo.gl/u08yjB).
