St. Louis theatre calendar for the week of December 27, 2010

[Updated Thursday, December 30, 2010]

[Looking for auditions and other artistic opportunities? Check out the St. Louis Auditions site.]

I'm now adding my own purely personal comments to events about which I think I have anything worthwhile to say. Because that's what bloggers do.

Everydaycircus Inc. performs shows hourly from 11 AM to 4 PM each weekend at City Museum, 701 N. 15th St. Shows are FREE with regular museum admission. (645-4445 or 231-CITY).

First Night, Grand Center's annual New Year's Eve celebration of the performing and visual arts, starts at 6 PM on Friday, December 31. In keeping with this year's theme, Fasta-sea, Grand Boulevard will be illuminated and animated in a colorful display of blue and green "aquarium" lights and projections. More than 150 performing and visual artists will participate, including magician Justin Kredible, storyteller Bobby Norfolk, and performers from The Imaginary Theatre Company, The Improv Trick, Upstream Theater, as well as cabaret artists Joe Dreyer and Rosemary Watts. The evening concludes with a fireworks display at midnight.  For more information, visit

David Robertson
The St. Louis Symphony, conducted by David Robertson presents a New Year's Eve Concert on Friday, December 31, at 7:30 PM at Powell Symphony Hall, 718 North Grand in Grand Center. For more information, call 314-534-1700.  This is usually a very festive event which, according to the SLSO web site, will be "full of musical surprises".   One item you won't want to be surprised by: Grand will be closed from Lindell  to Delmar for First Night  (see above). The Veterans Administration parking lot across Delmar and the lot accessible from Samuel Shepard Drive are reserved for SLSO concertgoers at $10 per vehicle.  You'll need to present your concert tickets for admission into the lot.  You might want to arrive early and check out some First Night events before and/or after the concert.
