WBTT is thrilled to present, from Friday, February 12 and running through Sunday, March 14, the return of its open-air concert series, “Light Up the Night!” The cabaret-style show features a live band led by Resident Music Director (and bass player) James “Jay” Dodge II, accompanying a variety of popular WBTT artists – including favorites like Raleigh Mosely, Henry Washington and more – as they perform soul hits of the 1970s. Selections will include "Superstition," "Let's Get It On," “I Want You Back," "Brick House," "September" and many, many more. Joining Dodge in the band will be Todd Bellamy, piano, Brennan Stylez on auxiliary keys, Brad Foutch, guitar, and Etienne “EJ” Porter, drums.

The artists will perform under the awning along the west side of the theater building, while patrons watch from the closest areas of the parking lot. Chairs within painted 6-foot circles – to ensure safe distancing – will accommodate one or two guests within each circle. Advance tickets will be sold in one-week increments to accommodate exchanges for inclement weather; there will be no door sales. There will be temperature checks at the gate and masks will be required at all times with no exceptions. No concessions will be sold and no food or drink will be allowed on-site, to ensure masks stay on for the duration of the evening.

Show takes place Tuesdays through Sundays. “Light Up the Night!” tickets are $40/person with seating in socially distanced parties of one or two. Go to westcoastblacktheatre.org or call the Box Office at 941-366-1505.
