Mark Johnson and Emory Lester in Concert @ Ocala Civic Theatre
Apr 29 @ 2:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Award-winning acoustic duo Mark Johnson and Emory Lester will appear in concert at Ocala Civic Theatre.

Johnson, on banjo, plays a unique fusion of bluegrass, traditional folk, and acoustic styles called “clawgrass,” expanding on an old Appalachian style of playing known as clawhammer. Lester, on mandolin and guitar, is also known for his musical creativity and strong lyrical style. Bass player Kene Hyatt also joins them to bring his talents to this concert. Inspired by a wide range of music, these talented musicians blend the modern with the traditional to create a fresh new sound.

Johnson and Lester return to Ocala Civic Theatre for a third time, after successful concerts in 2009 and 2013. The nationally acclaimed duo also wowed audiences on “The Late Show With David Letterman” in 2012, appearing with actor/comedian and fellow banjo player Steve Martin. They recently completed a sold-out European tour and will be appearing at the Grand Ole Opry this spring.

Shrek: The Musical @ Ocala Civic Theatre
May 18 @ 8:00 pm – 10:00 pm

Once upon a time, a hideous green ogre named Shrek lived all alone in a secluded swamp – until all the storybook characters of the kingdom are banished there by the evil little Lord Farquaad, spoiling his swampy solitude. Bitter and angry, Shrek ventures out into the world, befriended by a wisecracking Donkey on his journey. Meanwhile, locked in a castle tower guarded by a ferocious fire-breathing dragon is Princess Fiona, dreaming of true love’s first kiss and a romantic rescue by Prince Charming. But unlikely hero Shrek isn’t quite the brave knight she had in mind… even though the feisty Fiona has a few secret flaws of her own. The beloved Oscar-winning film magically transforms into a spectacular Tony Award-winning stage musical that celebrates the power of love and friendship, courage, epic adventures, and being yourself. Will they all live happily ever after? This irreverently funny fairy tale will make you a believer!
