Kristin Chenoweth, star of stage and screen, will headline the historic Grand Reopening Celebration of the Alberta Bair Theater at 8 p.m. Sept. 18.
The theater, which has been closed to the public since April 2019 for a $13.6 million renovation and expansion, welcomes the Emmy and Tony Award-winning actress and singer to celebrate this monumental accomplishment.
Chenoweth’s career spans film, television, voiceover, and stage. She is fondly remembered as Broadway’s first Glinda the Good Witch in “Wicked.” Most recently she stars in Apple TV’s musical comedy “Schmigadoon!”
Chenoweth has performed to sold-out audiences across the world, including performances on Broadway, at Carnegie Hall, and Royal Albert Hall. Her most recent album For The Girls is a heartfelt tribute to the great female singers throughout history, particularly some of Chenoweth’s heroes and friends.
“With COVID in the forefront of our lives, we are limiting capacity to allow for socially distanced seating upon request,” said Jan Dietrich, executive director. “For those who choose to celebrate the theater’s historic renovation with us, we strongly encourage wearing masks in the theater.”
All tickets, $150, include the after party on North Broadway, outside the theater on the closed off street where there will be a champagne toast, desserts, cash bars, and the hot club jazz of Rimrock Hot Club. Limited dine around options are available and seating begins at 5 p.m. While Buffalo Block, Juliano’s, and Petroleum Club are sold out, limited seating remains at Bistro Enzo, Hilands Golf Club, and Walkers. Dine Arounds are $250 and include the concert and after party.
Tickets are available at the ABT Box Office, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday through Friday, by phone at 406-256-6052, and on the ABT website at albertabairtheater.org. Dine Around packages are available at the window and by phone only.
