BROADWAY STAR RETURNS TO HELP RAISE FUNDS FOR THEATER THAT HELPED JUMPSTART HIS CAREER

 

Fort Worth, TX – Jubilee Theatre is thrilled to present a one night only command performance featuring Jubilee royalty, Broadway star and Fort Worth native Major Attaway.  A Night With Major Attaway & Friends is a fundraising initiative in celebration of Jubilee Theatre’s 39th birthday.  Join us on Monday, June 17, 2019 at 7:30 p.m. at the Four Day Weekend Theater located at 312 Houston Street. 

 

Attaway will also be joined on stage by fellow Fort Worth natives and Jubilee veterans Sheran Keyton and the Joe Rogers Trio along with newcomer, Kyle B. Spears.  Under the musical direction of Joe Rogers, this cabaret-style  program will take you on a journey as Major and friends rewind the hands of time reliving some of Jubilee’s best stage moments while sharing a few personal favorites. Attaway and Keyton have shared the stage in Jubilee classics like God’s Trombones, Ain’t Misbehaven, Little Shop of Horrors to name a few.

 

“What a tremendous treat to pair this trio of local talent together in honor of Jubilee Theatre’s mission and birthday,” states D.
