Our 2018 sold-out hit is back with its original cast. Condrea Webber, Deon Taylor, Chantel Ross, Kristal Lawrence, and Jody Odom unite with pianist Alice Bond, Rollie Harper on drums, and Ed Jonnet on saxophone to celebrate the songs made famous by Thomas "Fats" Waller. 35 songs, including I Can't Give You Anything But Love, It's A Sin to Tell a Lie, Mean to Me, Your Feets Too Big and Honeysuckle Rose are performed live on stage in the new Renaissance Backlot. The 'Joint will be Jumping' indeed!
Part of the Avita Innovation Concert Series
$25.00 per car
Throughout the summer, the Renaissance will present various outdoor entertainment events in the parking lot behind the theatre.
Come and safely enjoy concerts, live performances, and drive-in films projected onto a brand new screen generously donated by Lind Media Company and Lind SignSpring Group, LLC, and the Panasonic 8000 Lumen 3LCD Digital projector and Short throw Lens donated by Rand and Mary Smith.
Unless otherwise announced, all events will be held in a Drive-In format to accommodate current guidelines for mass gatherings. The lot will open 1 hour before the designated performance time.
Audio for all Backlot events will be broadcast on an FM radio station. If your car doesn’t have FM stations or if you want to conserve your battery, you are welcome to bring your own portable radio.
For safety reasons, no cash will be accepted at the gate. Please note that tickets are very limited. Please purchase in advance and check our social media pages for capacity announcements.
Parking will be on a first-come, first-serve basis, with larger vehicles such as trucks and SUVs asked to park in the rear out of consideration for other patrons.
FOOD, RESTROOMS, & SAFETY
You are welcome to bring your own food and we encourage take-out from local restaurants. Food Trucks will be on hand depending on availability, and the Ren will of course have popcorn, drinks, and candy available for purchase. Renaissance concessions may be purchased online with your ticket and picked up at the food kiosk.
The restrooms inside the Renaissance’s back entrance will be open for your use. They will be sanitized throughout the evening and will be limited in capacity. Unless you are picking up food or using the restroom, we ask that you remain in your car for the duration of the film. If you need to exit your vehicle, we do request that you wear a mask.
Cars will be ushered out by row after the performance.
Keep an eye on our website and social media for any changes or additions to the schedule! Until we can be inside the theatre again, we are excited to bring the stage to you!
All tickets purchased online and via phone are available for pick up at the Renaissance Box Office will call window prior to the event or during normal business hours.
