Emerald Coast Theatre Company is searing some sizzle into summer 2021 with a hot new live entertainment series. Summer Pop is a series of four different fun-filled entertainment events — ranging from alternative pop/rock, comedy, Broadway, Rat Pack-era tunes and even a little opera. The series will run on Fridays and Saturdays throughout June and July at ECTC’s performance space located at 560 Grand Boulevard, upstairs, in the Grand Boulevard Town Center in Miramar Beach.
“We are thrilled to bring this fun summertime music celebration to our community and are grateful that it will benefit our education programs,” says ECTC co-founder and producing artistic director Nathanael Fisher. “Each musical event will be a great evening out, so we invite everyone to come to one, or enjoy them all.”
The Summer Pop Fundraiser Series line up is as follows:
Friday, June 18 – Comedy Night! – Enjoy side-splitting comedy by a stellar line-up of regional comedians during an evening hosted by Northwest Florida’s funniest, Jason Hedden. The evening features comedian/actor/singer Jenn Weeks with a hilarious headline act by “blue-collar dad” Nathan Wallace— a Top 100 World Series of Comedy.
Saturday, July 17 – Jordan and Michelle’s “Back to Broadway” show – a fun-filled, high-engery tribute to the Broadway music of today and yesterday.
Saturday, July 24 – Frank & Friends with Peter Lake – Enjoy tunes from Frank Sinatra, Giacomo Puccini, Andrew Lloyd Webber and many more favorites.
Come on out and enjoy a glass of wine or beer while being entertainment by top talent in a relaxed, lounge atmosphere.
Come early to take time to browse the beautiful art on display in the ECTC lobby.
Sponsored by the Cultural Arts Alliances of Walton County, this exhibit features around 40 pieces of original artwork by CAA members. This special partnership is a fundraiser for ECTC. Purchase a piece of original art and 20 percent of the proceeds will benefit ECTC and its education outreach programs.
A virtual silent auction of valuable packages including food, wine, art, spa and excursions will coincide with these fundraising events. The virtual silent auction will go live June 1. Winners will be selected at the conclusion of the Summer Pop series.
Tickets to each Summer Pop music event fundraiser are $30 per person or purchase a Summer Pop pass including all four events for $100.
The Summer Pop Experience Package is $120 and includes: tickets for two, charcuterie board for two by Vintij Food & Wine, one bottle of wine and reserved preferred cafe seating for two. A limited number of packages are available.
