The Dixie Carter Performing Arts Center in Huntingdon has announced the lineup for its new season.

Celebrating 15 years, the Dixie has brought several nationally recognized musical acts, Broadway-style theatre productions and culturally-rich art exhibits to West Tennessee.

Henry County native Lori Neal Nolen is the executive director of The Dixie.

“We have been working hard to build a relationship with our area, and we are starting to see that hard work come full circle. The Dixie is a true part of our community.

With solid seasons behind us, The Dixie is proudly able to revisit some past successes, while adding in some top-notch new events this year,” Nolen said.

This season’s lineup at The Dixie boasts artists like Keb’ Mo’, Paul Thorn, Tyler Hilton, Diamond Rio, Karen Peck and a surprise guest to be announced later in the season.

The stage will also host the ever-popular School Time Performance Series as well as The Missoula Children’s Theatre.  

Most of the performances are at 7:30 p.m. beginning with Tyler Hilton on Oct. 19 followed by “The Hit Men: Legendary Rock Supergroup” on Oct. 26. 

A show called “The Tribute” is planned for Nov. 23 with “Keb’ Mo’s Jingle Bell Jamboree” set for Dec. 21.

Jan. 18 is the date for the surprise guest artist.

Two shows are set for February. The first will be at 8 p.m. Feb. 1 — “JJ Grey and Mofro” — with the Kentucky Headhunters coming at 7:30 p.m. Feb. 15.

On March 21, the Black Jacket Symphony will present Prince’s “Purple Rain.”

The Missoula Children’s Theatre will bring “Sleeping Beauty” to the Hal Holbrook stage at 3 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. on March 28.
