CCP stars Hackmann to appear in concert

CROSSVILLE — They’re back! After Cumberland County Playhouse gigs as Lancelot and Guinevere in Camelot and Beast and Beauty in Beauty and the Beast, newlyweds Nicole Bégué Hackmann and Nathanial Hackmann gave a concert two years ago before Nate left on a national tour. They are back onstage in Les Misérables at CCP, opening March 8, and due to the wonderful sold out success of their first duet concert, they are presenting another. Join them March 30 as Nate and Nicole perform Golden Anniversary Songbook — Playhouse Songs of Yesterday and Tomorrow.   The brilliant vocal styles and delightful repartee will make this an evening not be missed.

Nate has just returned from the national tour of Les Misérables and is starring as Jean Valjean in the brand new Playhouse production. Nicole is portraying the lovely Fantine. Their stunning vocal work and acting prowess are highlights of the show.

Nate and Nicole met and later dated as a result of their participation in the company at CCP. They have returned with their beautiful nearly one-year-old son, Alexander James (named in honor of Playhouse Producing Director James Crabtree) and are continuing their love of performing together here in Crossville. The concert will provide a fantastic opportunity to hear these favorites stretch their vocal wings and provide a variety of styles of music. Last time they sold out the house. So buy your tickets early.

Golden Anniversary Songbook – Playhouse Songs of Yesterday and Tomorrow is sponsored by Bruce and Carmen Wyatt. Call 484-5000 for tickets and information or visit CCP on the web at www.ccplayhouse.com.

Currently showing is Steel Magnolias (rated PG, through March 29, sponsored by Dr. Stanley Bise, M.D.) and Les Misérables (rated PG-13, runs through May 3 and is co-sponsored by Tennessee Plateau Oncology/Dr. Dirk C. Davidson, MD and by Dr. Vianney E. Villaruz, MD, Cardiology CMG-CMM). Coming soon is The Miracle Worker (April 5 – May 17, rated G and co-sponsored by Lauren and Mason Fox, and by Crossville, Inc.).

  • Conlee Color HI.jpg Conlee to perform at Palace

    John Conlee is a lot like the songs of which he sings. He lives a domestic life with his wife Gale and three children, Rebecca, Jessica and Johnny. During the past two decades, Conlee has achieved a level of success that he has sustained by simply being himself and by making records that the listening public can relate to. He is a gifted entertainer, but he’s not into the glitz and hype of the entertainment world. He’d rather spend his “off the road” time working on his 32 acre farm outside of Nashville or engaging in his woodworking and gunsmithing hobbies.
