Announcing the 2019-2020 George Daily Auditorium Professional Season!

OSKALOOSA, IA— The George Daily’s long awaited 2019-2020 Professional Season has been announced! There’s fun and laughter for everyone this season as humor, dance, and music take our stage!

New this year, the show sponsors and the Auditorium would like to recognize different groups that impact our community. A group will be highlighted as our “Community Spotlight Group” for each show of our season. This year, our featured groups are Business and Retail Organizations, Public Servants, Educators, Senior Citizens, Manufacturing, and Non-Profit Organizations. As thanks, upon purchasing tickets, members of the Community Spotlight group will receive a discount. From our sponsors and all of us at the Auditorium, thank you for all you do.

The season opens on Thursday, September 12, 2019 with a special Preview of Pat Hazell’s latest one-man shows, “Permanent Record.” Seinfeld writer, Pat Hazell, has made a name for himself over the years, and it’s left him with a permanent record of his life. Hold on tight as the creator of The Wonder Bread Years and My Funny Valentine turns a stroll down Memory Lane into a breakneck speed chase down Memory Highway. If you can’t laugh at yourself, why not laugh at him?

Join us in tribute to one of music’s greatest, Johnny Cash, with “Terry Lee Goffee” – The Ultimate Tribute to “Johnny Cash” on Sunday, November 17, 2019. When Johnny Cash’s sister, Joanne, saw Terry Lee Goffee perform his tribute to Johnny in Nashville, she said, “It’s a wonderful show, I would recommend it to anyone. You don’t impersonate my brother, you pay tribute with honor.” Terry Lee Goffee’s tribute has taken him around the world performing hits like “A Boy Named Sue,” and “I Walk the Line.” He looks like Johnny. He sounds like Johnny. Nobody does Johnny Cash like Terry Lee Goffee.

Our season concludes with Fly Dance Company on Wednesday, March 25, 2020. FLY is what happens when street dance and classical music meet, but that’s not all. Their performance style is called “theatrical hip-hop” – “theatrical” because acting is an essential element of this style. FLY is pure fun – youthful energy, risk-taking movement, and clever choreography set to a mix of surprising musical selections. Their community outreach touches an average of 50,000 kids annually with educational shows, residencies, and workshops that are unmatched in variety and positive social impact. Put it all together and we think you will agree… “There is no other group like FLY Dance Company.”

Each year, it costs over $180,000 to operate the George Daily Auditorium and all our programs. Ticket sales, sponsorships, and grants help but don’t cover all our expenses. Our equipment and technical expertise serve community forums like Eggs & Issues and impact the school districts like Oskaloosa, New Sharon, EBF, and Moulton-Udell. These opportunities are only made possible through the generous support of our Friends of the Auditorium. Our Friends support the professional season, educational outreach, and the George Daily Youth Theatre – culture, education, and entertainment for an entire region. Make your tax-deductible donation at bit.ly/gdcafriends or mail it to George Daily Auditorium, 1800 North 3rd St., Oskaloosa, IA 52577.
