Gettysburg, PA (May 31, 2024) – Musical tributes and dazzling physical feats will fill the historic 1925 auditorium at Gettysburg College’s Majestic Theater when the 2024-2025 Celebrity Season kicks off this August. The season lineup includes classic rock and roll, jazz, the universal languages of comedy and percussion, daring street acrobatics and athleticism, and the annual one-night Mountainfilm on Tour screening event. Tickets go on sale to the general public on Friday, June 21. Majestic members can access ticket pre-sales starting Wednesday, June 19.

The launch of the 2024-2025 season coincides with Executive Director Brett W. Messenger’s arrival at the Majestic after arriving in Gettysburg in late May following Founding Executive Director Jeffrey Gabel’s retirement in early 2024. Messenger is looking forward to getting to know Gettysburg audiences and is already working to schedule additional performing artists to grace the stage during the season.

“The upcoming season is rife with opportunities for Majestic audiences from near and far to gather for meaningful entertaining experiences. I look forward to getting to know our audiences and this community over the course of many great nights of music and performance,” said Messenger. “The Majestic’s Founding Executive Director, Jeffrey Gabel planned a thoughtful slate of performances for us to enjoy together. It is a true testament to his great legacy and dedication to this community and audiences young and old.”

Since the 1980s, 1964 The Tribute has been thrilling live audiences by transporting them to an early 1960s Beatles concert, re-created with period instruments, clothing, hairstyles, and onstage banter. After last appearing before Majestic audiences in the summer of 2012, 1964 returns to Gettysburg on Friday, August 9 at 7:30 p.m. to kick off the season. The performance is made possible by the J. William Warehime Fund of the Majestic Theater Centennial Endowment.

On Saturday, October 12 at 3 p.m., internationally renowned BAM Percussion brings The Blue Barrel Show to the Majestic with its powerful rhythms and riotously funny sketches. This show, made possible by the Sites Family Endowed Fund for Children’s Programming and the Jean S. LeGros and Jeffrey Gabel Endowed Fund for Family Programming, is appropriate for all ages. Next on Friday, October 25 at 7:30 p.m., audiences are invited to witness an evening in music history. When Carl Perkins, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis and Elvis Presley met up at Memphis’ Sun Records on December 4, 1956, no one could have guessed the jam session that ensued would turn into a landmark evening in rock and roll. One Night in Memphis pays tribute to that historic night with rockabilly, country, gospel, and pure 1950s rock and roll showcased by a live band. The performance is made possible by the Majestic Theater Centennial Endowment’s Lydia Ziegler Clare Fund.

Mountainfilm on Tour returns for the fifth year on Friday, January 24 at 7:30 p.m. Bringing the latest culturally rich and inspiring documentary short films from the annual Mountainfilm festival held each May in Telluride, Colo., Mountainfilm on Tour has become a tradition to warm up Gettysburg audiences each January. Films explore themes connected to Mountainfilm’s mission to use the power of film and art to inspire audiences to create a better world.

Jazz at Lincoln Center PRESENTS brings the soul of Mardi Gras to the Majestic on Wednesday, February 26 at 7:30 p.m. with New Orleans Songbook. Featuring world-class rising musicians straight from New York’s Lincoln Center, this evening of live performance immerses audiences in a celebration of the composers and melodies of the historic epicenter of jazz, the Crescent City. Finally, on May 2 at 7:30 p.m., 360 AllStars connects the street to performing arts with a supercharged urban circus featuring world champion and world record holding artists and athletes exploring all forms of rotation. New Orleans Songbook and 360 AllStars are each made possible in part by the Majestic Theater Centennial Endowment Fund.
