The Ordway Center is saying goodbye to its 306-seat McKnight Theatre, which is being torn down to make way for an 1,100-seat concert hall, in grand style.
The St Paul venue has scheduled a blowout concert, called “The Night of a Million Stars,” for April 28. It will be the last public event there.
The show will feature artists who have performed in the theater over the past decades. The line-up offers such Twin Cities notables as Kersten Rodau, T. Mychael Rambo, Christina Baldwin, Jamecia Bennett, Dieter Bierbrauer, Gary Briggle, Yolande Bruce, Julius C. Collins III, Debbie Duncan, Nicole Fenstad, Ben Bakken, Jessica Fredrickson, Greta Grosch, Monica Heuser, Tonia Hughes, Jennifer Baldwin Peden, Kacie Riddle, Randy Schmeling, Erin Schwab, Austene Van and Regina Marie Williams.
The evening also will feature performances by James A. Rocco (above) artistic director at the Ordway, and conductor Raymond Berg. Tickets, $40-$250, are at 651-224-4222 or online.
