Royal Wood Headlines Second Show In Palladian Series

You may not know him yet, but you are going to LOVE him!

Canadian singer/songwriter Royal Wood will sweep you off your feet when he plays at The Clayton Center on Friday, November 9. The alternative/pop artist delivers beautiful melodies, heartfelt emotions and strong vocals, and his fans will attest that he’s “talented, personable and SO MUCH FUN!”

Proclaimed a prolific songwriter and one of Canada’s major talents by critics, Wood has established himself as a true musical talent. Wood has two albums that have debuted in the Top 30. He has received multiple JUNO nominations, he is a two-time Canadian Folk Music Award nominee and he had a No. 1 added song at Hot AC radio. His songs have been heard on high profile sync placements like Grey’s Anatomy and Private Practice.

Wood just completed a wildly successful and sold out cross-country theater tour opening for the legendary Bonnie Raitt. He is currently touring the world in support of his critically acclaimed 2018 release, Ever After The Farewell.

Tickets to the 8 PM show are $18, plus taxes & fees.

Family Event Added To January Schedule

Family programming at an affordable price can be hard to come by, so The Clayton Center has added a special event to our winter schedule that fits both bills.

Audiences ages 8 to 80 will love Tomáš Kubínek – Miracle Man. Kubínek is a comic genius, virtuoso vaudevillian and all-around charmer who gives audiences an utterly joyous experience. Part clown, part mime, part acrobat, Kubínek’s slapstick brand of humor will leave you clutching your sides with laughter.

Tickets for the Thursday, January 31, show are only $5, plus sales tax and fees. Children ages 8-12 are free with the purchase of an Individual $5 ticket. All children must be accompanied by an adult. Treat your family to a show they won’t soon forget! (Even though children are free; they still need a ticket for admission to the show.)

Due to the focused nature of the program, this performance is not suitable for children under 8 years old.

 

Single Tickets To Palladian Series Shows On Sale Monday At 10 AM

It’s time! Single tickets to shows in the upcoming Palladian Series go on sale tomorrow — Monday, August 13 — at 10 AM.

We expect to be busy in the box office, so the following are a few tips to help you get the very best seats in the house to see your favorite performers.

  • Tickets will go on sale online, by phone and in person beginning at 10 AM. Please do not call the box office before this time as we will be unable to take your call.
  • We expect a high volume of sales in the first hour that tickets are on sale. Please be patient. If you are purchasing tickets by telephone, please leave a clear message that includes a call back number. We will be responding to messages in the order that they are received.

If you are purchasing tickets online, please keep the following in mind:

  • The ticket sales page for your selected performance will include a black & white seating chart below the instruction to “PLEASE CLICK ON A SECTION FROM THE MAP BELOW TO SEE SEAT AVAILABILITY WITHIN EACH SECTION.” You MUST click within one of the sections on that map in order to access available seating. You will be directed to a page that indicates the available seating within that section. (Blue circles indicate available seats.)
  • Be assured that the seats you see as available online are the same seats that are available for sale through the box office. Please do not select seats online and then call the box office to confirm availability. This places a hold on the seats and prevents the box office staff from accessing the seats for sale.
  • Most importantly, remember that the only authorized ticket sales agents for The Clayton Center are
    • The Clayton Center website at theclaytoncenter.com
    • etix.com
    • The Clayton Center box office at 919-553-1737, ext 2

Tickets purchased from unauthorized sources can not be honored. Tickets purchased from outside sources are often inflated in price and are not eligible for assistance if tickets are ever lost or stolen or if the event is canceled or rescheduled. The Clayton Center is not responsible for tickets purchased from other sources.

Thank you! We look forward to seeing you this season.

 

Al Strong & The Fresh Five To Headline Palladian Series Preview & Presale Party

We’re having a party!

The 2018-19 Palladian Series Preview and Presale Party is Friday, August 10. A $10 ticket will buy you an evening out AND the chance to purchase individual tickets to shows in the season before they go on sale to the general public.

Durham’s Al Strong and the Fresh Five headline the event with a 7:30 PM concert. A pre-show reception featuring hors d’oeuvres and a cash bar takes place beginning at 6:30 PM. (Note that tickets purchased after Wednesday, August 1, will be for concert admission ONLY and will NOT include the preshow reception.)

Al Strong & The Fresh Five push the envelope in defying musical genres, with hints of AfroBeat, rock, jazz and soul music all nicely woven together.
It’s all dance music for this group and a chance for pure musical expression. When not performing in the Raleigh-Durham area, Al balances his nonprofit and teaching responsibilities with traveling and performing. He is regularly booked in jazz scenes up and down the East coast, frequenting cities such as New York, DC and Atlanta. He has headlined his own shows at the BlueNote Jazz Festival, the Winter Jazz Fest, Blues Alley and a host of other clubs. At the heart of Strong’s work ethic is dedication to building a brand based on good, honest music that connects with and speaks to the listener’s hearts.

Tickets to the Palladian Series Preview and Presale Party go on sale on Friday, June 29, at 10 AM. Visit theclaytoncenter.com or call The Clayton Center Box Office at 919-553-1737 for more information or to purchase tickets.

 

Say Hello To “Bye Bye Birdie” July 27-28, August 1-4

Clayton Youth Theater is busy rehearsing for the 2018 summer production of Bye Bye Birdie.

Winner of 4 Tony Awards including Best Musical, Bye Bye Birdie is a loving send-up of the early 1960s, teenagers, and rock & roll. When rock star and teen idol Conrad Birdie is drafted into the army, his manager, Albert Peterson, faces financial ruin. Desperate for a publicity stunt big enough to help him survive Birdie’s departure, Albert and his secretary, Rose, hatch a plan to send Conrad to small-town America to sing one last song and give a goodbye kiss to one lucky fan on national television.

Hit songs from the show include Put on a Happy Face, Kids!, One Last Kiss, and A Lot of Livin’ to Do.

CYT will present Bye Bye Birdie on July 27, August 2, 3 and 4, at 7 PM, and Saturday, July 28, at 2 PM. Tickets for the show are $12 for adults, $6 for students 18 and under plus sales tax and fees. Tickets go on sale on Monday, June 25, at 10 AM.
