“I staged the show so that people would gather around a campfire or a picnic hut,” added Beiser.

2019 specifically marks the 25th season of the Adkins family that La Comedia owns. The family is looking forward to what is expected to be an outstanding season with family-friendly titles such as “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat”, “Newsies”, “Shrek The Musical” and “Elf The Musical”.

“We have loved serving and entertaining you, and we hope that with your continued support we can create memories for many more years to come,” said producer Joe Adkins. “Since our acquisition in 1995, we have made many changes and improvements to the facilities and operations. One thing that remains consistent is our desire to provide a unique, high quality dining and entertainment experience that is unique in the region. “

Grammy and Emmy Award winning Denver, inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 1996, has sold over 33 million records worldwide. Beiser hopes the audience will have the opportunity to reflect on his sonorous legacy.

“I’m sure a lot of people know John Denver, but for those who don’t know, this show is a great opportunity to get to know him better,” he said. “On the post-show meet and greet line, we heard some people say how excited they’ll be to find their John Denver albums at home and hear his music again. This show revives an old friendship and also introduces others to his music. “
