Based on the novel, The Year the Yankees Lost the Pennant by Douglass Wallop, Damn Yankees the Broadway mega-hit and winner of seven Tony Awards, including Best Musical, hits it out of the park! The winning score by Adler and Ross and a devilish book by George Abbot have made this sporty musical comedy a true American classic.

Middle-aged baseball fanatic Joe Boyd, trades his soul to the Devil, also known as Mr. Applegate, for a chance to lead his favorite team to victory in the pennant race against the New York Yankees. As young baseball sensation, Joe Hardy, he transforms the hapless Washington Senators into a winning team, only to realize the true worth of the life that he’s left behind. Joe ultimately outsmarts Applegate, returns to his former self and shepherds the Senators to the World Series.

Light, fast-paced and devilishly clever, Damn Yankees is a homerun hit, featuring all-American subject matter and an irreverent sense of humor. The perfect choice for a high school’s spring musical or community theatre production, Damn Yankees is a wicked, romantic comedy, sure to please.

Iconic Ladies of Soul and Jazz featuring Myrna Clayton
Sep 26 @ 7:00 pm

Tickets on sale in early August!

 

“America’s Songbird”
Nothing compares to the live performances of America’s Songbird Myrna Clayton.

Audiences around the world get up to dance when Myrna sings; mesmerized by her soul-filled, profound musical message for all. Tagged “The Maynard Ferguson of Jazz vocals” by Jazz orchestra conductor in Kazan, Russia, Myrna is America’s Songbird, showcasing her versatility across a broad mix of American music: Jazz, Pop, Soul, Gospel, R&B, Blues, or Country. Myrna’s entertaining and uplifting performances are unforgettable, whether performing for a few or many, she invigorates the audience to dance and sing along, building a connected community in the moment.

We are delighted to share that the U.S. State Department has awarded Myrna and her band, “The Myrna Clayton Experience” the opportunity to serve their country by representing American Music Abroad at US Embassies EurAsia’s Baltic Region: Lithuania, Latvia, Belarus, Estonia, and Maldova. They were selected 1 of 10 bands out of 400 bands from 40 states and traveled for the entire month of May 2018.

America’s Songbird has performed across the world in Germany, France, Great Britain, Nigeria, Russia, and Belarus as well as across the U.S., from New York City to New Orleans. Myrna attracts audiences to hear her sing whether it’s at theater halls, festivals, churches, outdoor amphitheaters, national/international conferences, or conventions. Many of these wonderful, diverse performances have been captured through live recordings. In addition to performing with her own band, Myrna enjoys bringing a featured vocalist for Big Bands. She has performed with four (4) Big Bands in Atlanta GA, including Atlanta’s oldest and longest-running Jazz orchestra (the African-American Philharmonic Jazz Orchestra) and Westside Winds 24-piece “Big Band” Jazz Orchestra (the most diverse big band orchestra in the southeast). She has also performed with seven (7) Big Bands across the countries of Russia and Belarus. Her versatility abounds.

Myrna is a quintessential entertainer, singer/songwriter, bandleader, flutist, A&R/vocal performance coach, and studio-session singer. A trained musician and singer since the age of 5 at her father’s church, Myrna has the skills to store an impressive repertoire and showcase her multi-octave instrument. Versatile in her range of American musical genres, Myrna’s jazz singing is remarkably versatile. She is equally at ease in performing Smooth Jazz, Classical Jazz Standards, Swing, Bebop, Fusion, and Contemporary Jazz.

In 2017, Myrna was selected by top award-winning Theatre Presenters and Producers for a coveted “juried” showcase at SouthArts’ 2017 Performing Arts Exchange. She has been the opening act for a wide array of top artists such as Kirk Whalum, Ruben Studdard, Alex Bugnon, Lalah Hathaway, and The Manhattans.

BACKGROUND
While greatly influenced by Ella Fitzgerald, Aretha Franklin, Nancy Wilson, and Natalie Cole, Myrna proudly acknowledges that her singing roots began in the church. Born in Alabama and raised in Atlanta GA, Myrna’s father(minister and educator) and mother(librarian and archivist) instilled a drive within her for excellence and education. Myrna made her singing debut at the age of five in her father’s church. She graduated from Atlanta’s prominent Northside High School of Performing Arts, earned a BS at Alabama A&M University, and went on to achieve an MBA from Atlanta University, building a successful corporate marketing career first before switching to launch her career as a professional American singer.

America’s Songbird Myrna Clayton is beloved for her charming and generous persona, her gifted and authentic performing artistry — and for being a loving force for humankind. Her willingness to help others develop their artistry comes from Myrna’s belief in paying back a debt of gratitude — for her gift of song.
