Wednesday Putting the smooth into jazz, Spyro Gyra brilliantly blends soul, Latin, pop and world beat influences to become one of most famous instrumental ensembles of all time. They hit the pop charts with their number one "Morning Dance" (title track of their platinum selling album), have gone on to sell more than eleven million records and have racked up nine Grammy nominations in their forty plus years.

You haven’t seen “Little Shop...” until you’ve seen THE MILL do “Little Shop...”!!

The voracious Audrey II will once again consume the Mill stage (and, indeed, the entire theater) with music and mayhem. It’s a not-to-be-missed event of monstrous proportions!
