Rockettes Coming to Rhode Island!

Do the heat and humidity have you longing for cooler weather?

Tomorrow night, September 1 at 7:30PM, WSBE Rhode Island PBS features RADIO CITY CHRISTMAS SPECTACULAR (yes, I said Christmas) starring the Rockettes. The world-famous Rockettes bring their signature eye-high kicks and precision choreography to such show stopping numbers as The Parade of the Wooden Soldiers and New York at Christmas. The show has dramatic theatrical lighting effects, breathtaking imagery, and an array of glamorous costumes.

The live show featuring the Rockettes is coming for the first time ever to the Providence Performing Arts Center (PPAC) in November. Through our long-standing promotion agreement with PPAC, WSBE Rhode Island PBS is pleased to announce we have great tickets for you to see the show. PPAC's Marketing Director PJ Prokop will be in our studios tomorrow night with information about how to get the tickets.

Here is information about the show from the PPAC site.

Then at 9 PM, WSBE Rhode Island PBS presents Great Performances IN THE HEIGHTS: CHASING THE BROADWAY DREAM. This televised version of the 2008 Tony Award-winning Best Musical is a moving, funny, and uplifting new show about a community of hard-working immigrants seeking a better life and trying to find their place – their home – in their new country. With a remarkable young cast, thrilling Tony® Award-winning dancing and a dynamic Tony® Award-winning score, In the Heights is an exhilarating journey into a vibrant Manhattan community – a place where the coffee is light and sweet, the windows are always open, and the breeze carries the rhythm of three generations of music.

The Broadway show comes to PPAC in January. Of course we have tickets!
