Majestic Theater announces its 2022-2023 Celebrity Season – Yahoo News

Jul. 3—Experience the magic of live entertainment with Gettysburg College’s Majestic Theater during the 2022-2023 Celebrity Season, which kicks off in August. The season lineup includes performances by world-renowned musicians, dance shows, a magician, live theater and the first-ever film festival dedicated to the films of Ken Burns.

The centerpiece of the 2022-2023 season is “Who Are We? A Festival Celebrating the Films of Ken Burns,” set for Feb. 10 to 12. The weekend, representing the first film festival ever dedicated to and sanctioned by the documentary filmmaker, will include 25 hours of film screenings from across Burns’ 40-year catalog, three presentations featuring Burns, and opportunities to hear from Burns’ colleagues about the music, scripts and cinematography that have come to characterize his work. Tickets for the three events featuring Burns are $29 each. A festival pass including admission to all paid events and early seating at festival events will also be available. Many festival events are free to attend, but ticket reservations are required. Advanced ticket reservation is strongly recommended and only available by calling or visiting the box office.

Opening the 2022-2023 Celebrity Season in early August are two popular concerts that always get audiences singing along. Rock legend and founding member of both the Hollies and Crosby, Stills and Nash, Graham Nash returns to the Majestic at 7:30 p.m. Aug. 7.
