  • Season tickets for the Chillicothe Area Arts Council’s 2013-14 season are on sale now and can be purchased by contacting the arts office at 660-646-1173 or by stopping by the Chillicothe Area Chamber of Commerce office, 514 Washington Street.
    The 2013-14 season runs from September to June and opens with Chautauqua in the Park Sept. 7-8, followed by a Saturday night Sept. 14 show, Rock Legends, featuring Billy McGuigan and his band playing the music of Elvis, Buddy Holly, Billy Joel, Elton John and others. Sept.29 the Arrow Rock Lyceum Theatre will perform the comedy “Tuna Does Las Vegas” about Tuna,  the third smallest town in Texas.
    In November the Chillicothe Area Community Choir will present “Harvest Harmony” under the direction of Frank Thomas, retired Missouri Western University professor of choral music, and in December, country music legend Gene Watson and his Farewell Party Band return to Chillicothe.
    After Christmas, arts council programs feature the Missoula Children’s Theatre with a week-long residency;  a program of classical guitarists; an organ and piano concert, an opera performance and a musical tribute to the music of the ‘60s—“California Dreamin’”. The Sliced Bread Jam Bluegrass Festival will return in June 2014.
    “For as little as $63 (a student season ticket is $30, and a senior ticket is $58), a season ticket holder can attend great shows between September and June,” Becky Wallace, arts council president, said. “That is more than a 50 percent savings on individual ticket prices. A season ticket is a bargain for our members, and provides great entertainment close to home,” she said.
    Funding for the non-profit Chillicothe Area Arts Council is provided through individual and business season memberships, through local foundations and gifts, and through the Missouri Arts Council, a state agency.
