Vocalist Clint Holmes kicks off Live at Lynn series
BOCA RATON — Lynn University and Jan McArt, Director of Theatre Arts Program Development, announced that Clint Holmes will be the opening performer of the 2011-2012 season of the “Live at Lynn” Theatre Series at the Keith C. and Elaine Johnson Wold Performing Arts Center:
He will appear Oct.15 at 7:30 p.m. and Oct. 16-at 4 p.m.
Holmes, known for his hit single, “Playground in my Mind,” got his first break when Joan Rivers invited him to be her sidekick and announcer on the now defunct The Late Show. This was followed by a two-year stint on Entertainment Tonight for which he served as musical feature and event correspondent, and later landed his own Emmy winning talk/variety show entitled, New York at Night.
Named “Entertainer of the Year” in Las Vegas and Atlantic City, Holmes’ casual elegance and silky vocal stylings have a magical way of filling a room with a warm, comfortable sound. His appearances at The Kravis Center for the Performing Arts and The Colony Hotel’s Royal Room Cabaret, along with his Sammy Davis Jr. material with the Palm Beach Pops, have made him a return-demand favorite locally.
Tickets are $45/mezzanine, $50/orchestra, and $65/box. They are available at the Lynn University Box Office, located in the Wold Performing Arts Center at 3601 N. Military Trail. Tickets also may be purchased online at http://our.lynn.edu or by phone at 561.237.9000.
The 750-seat Wold Performing Arts Center, located on Lynn’s campus in Boca Raton, features superb acoustics, a modern lighting system, a large, light-filled lobby, and flexible space well suited for dramatic productions, concerts and other cultural events.
