CARLEY RAE JEPSEN
BROWARD CENTER PRESENTS
A STAGED CONCERT READING OF
NEW PSYCHEDELIC MUSICAL ORANGE JUICE
The Boward Center for the Performing Arts and Banana Buzz, Ltd. presents a new production in its final stages of development. Performances will be held in the Abdo New River Room on Friday, July 26 and Saturday, July 27, 2019 at 7:30 p.m.
Told through the music of famous bands that didn’t make it to the Woodstock music festival, the music follows a conservative father who embarks on a voyage of discovery, after hitching a ride on the bus of a band headed there. Along the way he learns the weird and wonderful reasons some of the era’s greatest rockers missed out on playing the most iconic music festival of all time.
When we think of the 60's there are some very famous bands that spring to mind but many of them didn’t play at Woodstock for many reasons, which was an inspiration for the producers to write Orange Juice.
Performed without sets or costumes, this staged concert has music direction by Carl Ginsbrg Fantel and choreography by Katie Thomas.
There are a lot of people who remember the 60's but even those of us too young to have been there can still be inspired by the positivity and desire to change the world that fueled the hippie movement, and of course, people of any generation can enjoy the music.
Following the performance, audience mermbers have the chance to meet with the writing team and provide feedback. Tickets are $10 at Ticketmaster and the Center’s box office located at 201 S.W. Fifth Avenue, Fort Lauderdale. Purchase online at Ticketmaster.com and BrowardCenter.org. For more information call 954-462-0222.

Carly Rae Jepsen is a Canadian singer, songwriter, and actress. Jepson performed several lead roles in her high school’s musical productions and pursued musical theatre at the Canadian College of Performing Arts in Victoria.
After completing her studies, she competed on the fifth season of Canadian Idol in 2007, placing third. In 2008, she released her folk-influencd debut studio album “Tug of War.” Jepsen’s breakthrough came in 2012, when her single “Call Me Maybe” achieved significant mainstream popularity; the song was the best-selling single of the year, reaching number one in 18 countries.
As a result, she was signed to a joint worldwide record deal with Schoolboy Records and Interscope Records. Jepson’s second studio album “Kiss,” was released later that year. It marked a greater shift into mainstream pop music and saw fair commercial success, reaching the top ten in Canada and the United States.
In 2015 Jepson released her third studio album, “Emotion,” which led to the success of “Really Like You,” and received critical acclaim. Her fourth studio album, “Dedicated,” was released in May 2019.

LIONEL RICHIE A POPULAR AWARD WINNING SINGER
COMING TO HARD ROCK LIVE HOLLYWOOD
Lionel Ritchie is known for creating numerous hits, both with the Commodores and as a solo artist. He was a founding member of the Commodores, a top R&B act of the 1970's before finding success as a solo artist with the number one single “Truly,” from his self-titled debut album.
More hits soon followed, including ‘Hello” and “Dancing on the Ceiling.” In 1985 he co-wrote the famine relief song “We Are The World” with Michael Jackson. Richie’s later albums include “Louder Than Words,”and “Coming Home.” He enjoyed renewed chart success with his 2012 country album, Tuskegee, and was named a judge for the 2018 reboot of American Idol.
Having already demonstrated his songwriting chops with the Commodores, and by penning the hit ballads “Lady” (for Kenny Rogers) and “Endless Love” (sung with Diana Ross), Lionel Ritchie launched his self-titled solo album in 1982.
He hit the jackpot with the lead single “Truly,” which surged to number 1 late in the year, while “You Are”and “My Love” also landed inside the Billboard Top 5.
Richie’s next effort was “Can’t Slow Down.” The success of this project, which won Richie a Grammy for Album of the Year, helped cement his status as one of music’s biggest stars.
