The Rock ‘n Roll Jubilee

Back by popular demand, “The Rock ‘n Roll Jubilee” will return to the Robinson/Olsson Auditorium in West Point on Saturday, January 13, said Arts Alive spokesperson Donna Kline. The show features music from the “titans of teen town”: Elvis Presley, Buddy Holly, Roy Orbison, The Everly Brothers and Ricky Nelson, and is sponsored by Baylands Family Credit Union and the New Kent Woman’s Club. Show time is 7 p.m.    

The Rock n’ Roll Jubilee is a musical and theatrical performance that channels the spirits of the founding fathers of rock n’ roll, presented in the context of a live 1958 broadcast on fictitious WJKS radio. The show combines the theatrical elements of the Grand Old Opry, the sensibilities of the Prairie Home Companion, and the excitement generated by the founding fathers of rock as they barnstormed across America, spreading the gospel of rock & roll.

The music is authentically presented by Craig Evans, Brad Tucker (both of The Taters), Brian Sulser, George Garrett, Jim Wark, and BJ Kocen. In addition to the greatest songs ever written, the Jubilee includes 1950s period advertisements, skits, and lots of laughs and surprises.

Tickets are $25 for adults, $20 for seniors (65-plus), and $10 for students. Group rates are available at $15 each for groups of 10 or more. Tickets may be purchased online at http://www.artsaliveinc.org, by phone at 843-3475, or by emailing .
