On Stage in February


Whether you are blissfully wedded or still pitching woo, the Wichita Grand Opera offers a Valentine's Day celebration unlike any other you'll find in the city. 

Enjoy a Big Band Valentine, featuring the full-bodied sounds of big band music, led by Michael Andrew. Andrew is best known as former headliner and bandleader for the Rainbow Room in New York City. The Rainbow Room opened in 1934, and has hosted crown princes and princesses from Spain, Norway, and Sweden, among others. For the rest of the clientele, a trust fund was assumed, with a dress code that was white-tie formal and required.

The dress code is a little less rigorous for the evening that Wichita Grand Opera has planned, but no less romantic. Surprise your love with VIP tickets for dining, dessert, wine, and a champagne toast, or go with regular admission tickets, which include dessert, coffee, and tea, plus the chance to dance the night away at Century II’s Exhibition Hall.

Or get the children out of the house and off the television, computer, and telephone screens—Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood Live! is at the Orpheum Theatre on February 10. This interactive musical, set in the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, includes such characters as Katerina Kittycat, Prince Wednesday, and Mom and Dad Tiger.  Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood Live! provides an evening of song, dance, laughter, friendship, and fun, and it might be just the cheerful ray of sunshine your little ones need after the days of cold midwinter.
