Howlin’ at the Hall with Brandon Lay

On January 11th, Brandon Lay will be performing at Kanza Hall for Howlin’ at the Hall. From 6-10 pm, come out for some live music at this unique, country rock-focused music hall. Lay brings his own Tennessee flair to his music, inspired by John Mellencamp, Alan Jackson, and Bruce Springsteen. He draws styles and techniques from the rock & roll and R&B in Memphis and classic country in Nashville. Be sure to purchase your tickets in advance.

Night at the Arboretum: Lunar Eclipse

On January 21st, head over to the Overland Park Arboretum and Botanical Gardens for a special Lunar Eclipse viewing event. Tickets are only $3 for non-members and include admission to the park. Beginning at 7 pm, join other locals to witness our planet pass between the sun and the moon while you enjoy fun, educational activities. Bring your flashlights and friends for a night out in Kansas’ beautiful natural environment.

Shear Madness

Throughout January, the New Theatre Restaurant will be performing “Shear Madness” starring Home Improvement’s Richard Karn. This play is the longest running comedy in American history and just reached its 31st year at the Kennedy Center for Performing Arts in Washington D.C. Follow Inspector Nick O’Brien as he inspects the murder of a famous pianist. The ending of each performance is different, allowing you to visit several times through February 17th. You can purchase your tickets online.
