NOTE: Kristin Chenoweth was originally scheduled to perform on July 21. She must postpone her performances this summer due to ongoing complications from a past neck injury and will take time off so she can properly heal. We wish her a quick recovery. She will return to perform with us in 2019 on a date that will be announced at a later time. (Edit made 6/6/2018)
