HUTCHINSON — Stage 9 will present the inaugural event for our new Excite Series in the 2018 season. A fun, rocking and rousing Stage 9 Live! PopUp Choir. Stage 9 Live! “Songs That Get People Lit” will be at 6:30 p.m. on Jan. 20 located at 9 S. Main, Hutchinson.

Stage 9 is proud to offer these special presentations throughout the year as part of a brand new series that we are naming to honor their mission: to excite minds, move hearts and change lives through theatrical performance, arts education and live entertainment. The Excite Series combines the Second Stage and Special Events into a broad offering of fun and memorable activities as only Stage 9 presents. Talking Tombstones and Stage 9: On Broadway [Underground] are the first two events of this series. Excite Series events (including Stage 9 Live!) will be added throughout the year so keep your eyes on our website and Facebook page for dates, times and ticket prices

This event is recommended for ages eight years and older. Similar to last year, Stage 9 is pleased to be offering the world famous PopUp Choir experience for the Hutchinson community. Come join us for an evening of “Songs That Get People Lit.”

Members of the audience will learn four songs that will later be performed, recorded, and posted to YouTube and our Stage 9 social media.
