The Bergen Performing Arts Center has announced two more crowd-pleasing shows added to its full roster of outstanding entertainment. Founded in 2003, the 1,367-seat venue is housed in a recently renovated historic Art Deco-style theater in Englewood.
“Hits! The Musical” — Wednesday, March 8, 7 p.m.
Dionne Warwick, six-time Grammy Award winner and music legend, presents this 90-minute show of extraordinary singing, spectacular dancing, hundreds of costume changes, and state-of-the-art lighting and sound.
Songs like “Signed, Sealed, Delivered,” “Hero,” “I Will Always Love You,” “Singing In The Rain,” and nearly 80 more of America’s most popular songs will be performed by a troupe of talented young singers and dancers. Members of the cast of 29, ages 10-22, were selected from a nationwide audition of over 7,000 individuals.
A great show for all ages — America’s next great musical! To learn more, visit thehitstour.com.

“Get The Led Out” — Friday, July 14, 8 p.m.
From the bombastic and epic, to the folky and mystical, Get The Led Out (GTLO) has captured the essence of the recorded music of Led Zeppelin and brought it to the concert stage. The Philadelphia-based group of six veteran musicians who deliver Led Zeppelin live — Paul Sinclair, Paul Hammond, Tommy Zamp, Eddie Kurek, Jimmy Marchiano, Andrew Lipke, Adam Ferraioli, and Phil D’Agostino — recreate the songs in all their depth and glory with studio overdubs.
The concert mimics the “light and shade” that are the embodiment of “The Mighty Zep.” Their attention to detail and nuance makes a GTLO performance an awe-inspiring.
Also included: a special “acoustic set” with Zep favorites like “Tangerine” and “Hey Hey What Can I Do.” With no wigs or fake English accents, GTLO delivers a high-energy Led Zeppelin concert with heart-thumping intensity.
