Coming Soon to the Sunrise Civic Center Theatre and Art Gallery
Experience the arts in Sunrise:
Saturday, August 17th, at 7:00 p.m. – Woodstock’s 50th Anniversary Weekend!
In August of 1969, Woodstock drew nearly a half million people, shutting New York State Thruway exits and becoming a symbol of the Sixties’ peaceful coexistence. The music of Woodstock – by Crosby, Stills and Nash; Joan Baez; Arlo Guthrie; The Who; Jefferson Airplane; Jimi Hendrix; and others – became the soundtrack of a generation. The PinkSlip Duo takes you on a virtual pilgrimage to Woodstock, complete with live music and vivid images. Wear your tie-dye and relive this pop culture milestone. Reserved seating: $18 adult, $10 child.
