TCA brings Pure Michigan to the stage this summer with an extraordinary lineup of movies, music and comedy. The Black Box Summer Series is scheduled for the fourth Thursday of June, July, and August at 7:00 PM. Located in the cool and comfortable auditorium of the TCA, the series is sure to entertain and be a respite on those hot summer nights.

Opening the series on June 25th is an exciting and compelling one hour documentary entitled “Our Fires Still Burn: The Native American Experience.” The documentary has been positively reviewed by Booklist and is airing nationally on PBS. The film invites viewers into the lives of contemporary Native American role models living in the Midwest, particularly Michigan.  It dispels the myth that American Indians have disappeared from the American horizon, and reveals how they continue to persist, heal from the past, confront the challenges of today, keep their culture alive, and make great contributions to society. Their experiences will deeply touch both Natives and non-Natives and help build bridges of understanding, respect, and communication.

Thursday, July 23rd brings, Steve Smargon and Friends – A Night of Comedy! Steve was the winner of the Tecumseh Center for the Arts’ “So You Think You’re Funny?” Comedy Open Mic Night and will be joining a cast of other local comedians during this jovial night of jokes and jests.

Closing out the Black Box Summer Series will be Red Tail Ring on Thursday, August 27th. This Americana music is an elegant blend of string and vocal harmonies. Since their 2011 debut double-album, Red Tail Ring has played 130 shows a year with tours to both U.S. coasts and performances in Denmark and Germany.

 Beat the summer heat with cool music, an intriguing documentary or light-hearted comedy show. The TCA is a great place to meet up with friends and family for an end of the week outing. The TCA lobby lounge opens at 6:00 pm with a variety of refreshments including beer and wine. You can also swing by Evans Street Station and enjoy their Patio Parties before and after the shows.
