Sugarland’s Jennifer Nettles will perform a rare, intimate solo show at the Murchison Performing Arts Center in Denton, Texas on January 15, 2011, to benefit Attic Community Playground, a non-profit organization supporting the performing arts. Jack Ingram will open the show.
“Attic Community Playground is one of my dearest charities,” Nettles says. “Art programs within schools continue to be cut. To me this is a very sad fact. I not only enjoy a career in the arts, but I also enjoyed and benefited from the performing arts as a kid. Music, band, chorus, drama—each of them provided me with outlets of emotional exploration and self expression, and offered me an avenue to develop self confidence.”
Proceeds from the show will go to the Ponder High School Band and Choir Program in Ponder, Texas, and the music program at The Museum School of Avondale Estates, Georgia—a suburb of Nettles’s adopted hometown of Atlanta.
Tickets priced at $50 and $200 are on sale now. $200 VIP tickets include a private meet and greet opportunity with the performers. Also included: complimentary food & beverage at the meet and greet and preferred seating at the event.
Attic Community Playground (ACP) is a non-profit organization that supports the performing arts. Art programs within schools—band, chorus, drama, art—continue to be cut. To me this is a very sad fact in that I not only enjoy a career in the arts, but I also enjoyed and benefited from the performing arts as a kid. Music, band, chorus, drama—each of them provided me with outlets of emotional exploration and self-expression, and offered me an avenue to develop self-confidence. ACP hopes to help provide students with opportunities for experiencing and studying the arts in an effort to develop their self-expression, emotional exploration and self-confidence.

I would go with the 200. 00 tickets. How can you go wrong? Your supporting the arts with your money and you are meeting the performers and getting dinner and a show. I’m pleased to hear when a big artist supports a small charity. Every small charity needs so much. – said Stephanie Higgins on Jan 10, 2011
