The blockbuster movie is remade for the stage in a sparkling, feel-good comedy, featuring dazzling dance routines and songs inspired by Motown, gospel, soul, and disco.

During the pandemic, the Grammy winning guitarist, vocalist, composer, and multi-instrumentalist has been busy releasing weekly, donation-based, virtual “Mini-Lessons” benefitting Food Banks across the country and working in the studio on previously un-released tracks and new recordings. The currently untitled new record is scheduled for release later this year. 

Throughout his career, Johnson has approached music as a healing force, a way to enhance a listener’s consciousness, and conjure joy and inspiration. More than a year into the pandemic, and because of the pandemic, he reflects that this approach has become reinforced and more enhanced. 

The 2022 Treasure Tour will feature some of the previously un-released gems, some new songs, and some older favorites. His band will include Tom Brechtlein on drums, and Roscoe Beck on bass.

Carolina Ballet will close their 2021-2022 Season with one of the most celebrated stories ever told through the traditions of classical ballet, Giselle.

Giselle features the iconic Wilis, ethereal spirits who rise from their graves to dance at night. These supernatural beings are portrayed by a chorus of 16+ ballerinas—all on pointe, all moving together as one. Counted among the greatest masterworks of the classical ballet canon, Giselle will leave you moved and mesmerized.
