The TAC will get off to a fast start at 3 p.m. Sunday with “ARTrageous” at the Claudia Crosby Theater on the campus of Troy University.  ARTrageous will perform interactive vignettes including singing, dancing, live music, puppetry and painting and TAC members will enjoy the performance, front and center. ARTrageous is a sampling of the variety of arts entertainment that the TAC will present in 2020.

“ARTrageous is just the beginning of an amazing year of arts entertainment that concludes in December with the traditional “Shelia Jackson and Friends Holiday Concert,” Hopper said. “We invite everyone to join us Friday night and learn more about the TAC and the benefits of membership.”

The TAC memberships range from a $100 sponsor membership through Grand Benefactor for $450. Season tickets come with each level of membership beginning with one ticket.  However, those who attend the TAC membership event Friday night will have the opportunity of a special membership that includes three season tickets for only $150. That’s an early benefit of membership and one of the many benefits of TAC membership, Hopper said.

“Join us Friday night from 6 until 8 at The Studio and learn more about the TAC and the benefits and opportunities of membership,” Hopper said.
