Events

At the Carrollwood Cultural Center, magic is around every corner. Music fills the air, colors dress the walls, dancers float on stage and drama evokes emotion. The Center has been honored to host an array of local talents from visual artists, instrumentalists, singers, dancers and theatre groups. We look forward to introducing more area talent through future performances and concerts. Who knows? Perhaps our next headliner will be you!

LECTURE: General Robert E. Lee
May 10 @ 6:00 pm

“I have led the young men of the South in battle; I have seen many of them die in the fields.  I shall devote my remaining energies to training young men to do their duty in life”.  “I will give that sum”. – General Robert E. Lee

Lee WeepsGeneral Robert E. Lee portrayed by Al Stone

Al Stone has portrayed General Lee at the annual Gettysburg reenactment for eight years, including the 150th anniversary of Generals Lee and Grant at Appomattox, Virginia. He has participated in more than 1,000 other reenactments, including the nationally televised “The Trial of Robert E. Lee” at Liberty University’s annual July 4th celebration in 2002. He has appeared as General Lee in more than 30 small and big screen documentaries and movies. Mr. Stone has been described by Civil War re-enactors and historians alike as presenting the “most accurate impression of General Lee in the union today.” 

The articles of clothing worn by Al are designed to replicate that worn by General Lee at various periods of his life.  Every step has been taken to be authentic and a visit to the Confederate museum in Richmond will testify as to this authenticity.  It’s Al’s intent to provide you a memorable visit with the venerable General Robert E. Lee. READ MORE

CYPRESS CREEK DIXIELAND JAZZ BAND
Jun 10 @ 8:00 pm

Cypress Creek Dixieland JAzz BandThe Cypress Creek Dixieland Jazz band is a group of local musicians with strong roots in the Tampa music scene.  Members have performed with everything from brass bands to concert bands, pit orchestras to Symphonies, Chamber ensembles to swing bands, polka bands to a Cappella  groups and almost anything in between.

But what keeps this group together is their love for the early jazz music of New Orleans Dixieland.

“Arguably the happiest of all music is Dixieland jazz. The sound of several horns all improvising together on fairly simple chord changes with definite roles for each instrument but a large amount of freedom, cannot help but sound consistently joyful.”  – Scott Yanow

Book by Douglass Wallop & George Abbott

Music & Lyrics by Jerry Ross & Richard Adler

Based on the novel, The Year the Yankees Lost the Pennant by Douglass Wallop

Presented by MAS Community Theatre

Directed by Aaron Washington

Based on the novel, The Year the Yankees Lost the Pennant by Douglass Wallop, Damn Yankees the Broadway mega-hit and winner of seven Tony Awards, including Best Musical, hits it out of the park! The winning score by Adler and Ross and a devilish book by George Abbot have made this sporty musical comedy a true American classic.

Middle-aged baseball fanatic Joe Boyd, trades his soul to the Devil, also known as Mr. Applegate, for a chance to lead his favorite team to victory in the pennant race against the New York Yankees. As young baseball sensation, Joe Hardy, he transforms the hapless Washington Senators into a winning team, only to realize the true worth of the life that he’s left behind. Joe ultimately outsmarts Applegate, returns to his former self and shepherds the Senators to the World Series.

Damn Yankees is being produced by special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI).
