Over one hundred fifty years ago, the Civil War touched the lives of all
Americans. Their patriotism, bravery, joys and sorrows were expressed in the
songs of the era. Now the songs live again in the concert and lecture series, Music of the Civil War, presented by Ron Selle and Darlene Agner. Darlene’s stories and Ron’s music will take you back to that bygone age of sacrifice, heroism, and emotion.

Tickets are $10 and can be purchased in advance starting Wednesday, May 17 or at the door.

Ron Selle and Darlene Agner will once again be presenting Music of the Forties at the Eagle Performing Arts and Conference Center! Join them as they take you on a sentimental journey through song and story back in time to the good old days of the 1940's. Those were exciting years, those years of the big band, when, for less than a dollar you could spend an entire evening watching and listening to the songs of your favorite orchestras and singers. Audiences thrilled to the big band sound of Glenn Miller, Benny Goodman, Tommy Dorsey and others, singing about love, emotions, and patriotism.

Tickets are $10 and can be purchased starting May 17 by calling the Eagle Box Office at 815-844-1187. Tickets will also be available at the door.

Show dates are Friday, June 9 at 1:00pm and Friday, June 23 at 1:00pm. Doors will open at 12:30. All seats are general admission.

The Eagle Box Office is open 10-4 Monday through Friday. If your call does not get answered, please leave a message and box office staff will return your call as soon as possible.

It’s impossible to crown any one performer as country music’s biggest star, but Hank Williams, Loretta Lynn, Patsy Cline and Johnny Cash would all be near the top of any list. Each broke barriers and changed country music and popular culture forever. Sweet Dreams & Honky Tonks is a new musical revue featuring live musicians presenting the best loved songs of these classic artists along with stories of their colorful lives and careers.

Doors open at 6:30, show starts at 7:00 for this one night only event.

Tickets go on sale to the general public February 20 and are $22 in advance or $25 at the door. All tickets are general admission. Tickets can be purchased over the phone by calling 815-844-1187 or in person by stopping at Pontiac City Hall.

Tickets for Bleacher Bums, Vermillion Players next dinner theatre at the Eagle are on sale now!

Written by Joe Mantegna and directed by Liz Vincent, Bleacher Bums tells the story of die-hard Cubs fans watching the game in the bleachers at Wrigley field. Mick Peterson will play die-hard cubs fan Zig and Kelli Montgomery, a newcomer to Vermillion Players, will play his wife Rose. Sarah Bertram will play sun-worshipper Melody. Anthony Chunk Gullo will be calling the game from the bleachers as Greg and Dylan Webster will be calling the game from the booth as the announcer. Decker, the energetic Cubs fan, will be portrayed by another VP newcomer James Vant. Joe Diaz is taking another turn on The Eagle stage as Richie, a friend to all the "bums" (although no one wants to get to close to him). Brooke Lynn Tuftie returns to VP as the kid in the bleachers. And Marvin, the guy trying to make a buck off of everyone's love for the Cubs, will be played by yet another newcomer to VP Grant Stuart. And the bleachers are nothing without a couple fanatics leading the crowds in some cheers and Cody Leach and Melissa Barton will make sure it feels just like Wrigley for our audience members. The show is being produced by Carrie Beth Curtiss.

Tickets are $35 for adults, $25 for children 12 and under. Tickets can be purchased by calling (815) 844-1187 between the hours of 10:00-4:00 Monday through Friday.

Show dates are March 31-April 2 and April 7-9. Friday and Saturday evenings doors open at 6:00, dinner service starts at 6:15, and the show begins at 7:30. Sunday matinees doors open at 12:30, dinner service begins at 12:45 and the show begins at 2:00.
