The Door Community Auditorium (DCA) has announced its 2020-21 Main Stage performance schedule. Because of the uncertainty surrounding the coming months, however, all programming decisions will be firmly rooted in public-health recommendations and state law. DCA will also offer ticket refunds if a performance does not take place or a ticket holder feels unwell.
The season will open with country-music great Tanya Tucker on July 13, with special guest Reverie Lane opening for her. The Steely Dan tribute band Steely Dane will perform July 16, and jazz pianist Chick Corea will take the stage July 22. A cappella sensation Straight No Chaser will perform July 25, followed by the old-time string band Old Crow Medicine Show on July 29.
Bluesman Keb’ Mo’ will return by popular demand Aug. 16. The Four Tops will kick off Labor Day weekend Sept. 4, and country torchbearer Marty Stuart and His Fabulous Superlatives will appear Sept. 12. On Sept. 20, DCA will host The Wailers, and Delbert McClinton will take the stage Sept. 27.
Comedian Paula Poundstone will bring her humor to Fish Creek Oct. 3. The Latino dance troupe Ballet Hispanico will perform Oct. 14, and Manitowoc Minute’s Charlie Berens will deliver his hilarious, Wisconsin-based comedy again Oct. 18.
On Oct. 29, country-folk duo The Cactus Blossoms will appear in a double bill with Idaho songwriter Eilen Jewell. Don’t miss the Zimbabwean vocal ensemble Nobuntu in concert Nov. 7. On Nov. 28, Joanne Shenandoah will present Giving Thanks to Mother Earth. DCA will celebrate the winter holidays with the Glenn Miller Orchestra on Dec. 11 and its annual Play It Forward for the Holidays show Dec. 27.
DCA’s programming will continue throughout the winter. On Feb. 26, it will present Bessie, Billie and Nina: Pioneering Women in Jazz. Meeting Mozart will introduce young audiences to classical music on March 4. And Black Violin will present its genre-defying “classical boom” music April 28. All of the winter Main Stage shows are part of DCA’s Passport Program, meaning they contain educational elements for Door County youth as well.
