“Hank Williams Remembered”: Jake Penrod

The Artesia Arts Council is proud to release the lineup for its upcoming season at the Ocotillo Performing Arts Center, set to run Sept. 11, 2016, through May 6, 2017.

The schedule will open at 3 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 11, with “Hank Williams Remembered,” performed by Jake Penrod. At 2 and 7 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 24, comedy magician Dana Daniels will perform.

Jason Alexander – “George” from TV’s “Seinfeld” – calls Daniels “by far the most consistently funny comedy magician I’ve ever seen. His material is flawless, as is his magic, and everyone goes out both amazed and aching with laughs.”
