Internationally acclaimed hypnotist and mentalist Bastille is bringing his mystifying bag of tricks to the Community Theatre July 18 and 19, 2014. This is a return trip for Bastille. He performed at the Pine Bluff Dinner Theatre series in 2013 and garnered rave reviews for his riveting performance. He will be joined by his wife, Kaya, a seasoned performer who adds a new dimension to the already intriguing and entertaining trip throught the mysteries of the mind.
Bastille has been baffling audiences as a mentalist and hypnotist for over 20 years. He has been a long-time headliner on cruise ships and has appeared on national television. While touring 22 countries, he performed the first show in East Berlin after the wall came down.
In this unique experience, people can say they didn’t just see a show … they were part of a show. Sophisticated audiences from London to Las Vegas are mesmerized by the man they call “BASTILLE”.
“Absolutely amazing … impossible!” — “Mysterious, entertaining and classy.”

A consummate jazz musician who has performed at Lincoln Center, Carnegie Hall and the highly regarded New Jersey Performing Arts Center, Rio Clemente holds his audiences spellbound with the sheer brilliance of his improvisations, and his unique fusions of classical passagework with jazz. None of that is news to Rio Clemente fans in Pine Bluff. He performed here in the 2013 Pine Bluff Dinner Theatre to rave reviews and requests to return.
Anyone who has listened to Rio Clemente play piano, comes away in awe. This master artist mixes a strong classical background with a rich knowledge of jazz history, then adds an amazing sense of creativity and interpretation. The result is music that is different from others, and nearly always produces a standing ovation and cries for "more."
To make the trio, Rio is joined by Gene Perla on bass and drummer, Wayne Dunton, two highly regarded instrumentalists in their own rights. Perla has been on the jazz scene for more than 40 years and is not only noted for his musicianship, but as a music publisher and educator as well. Dunton is in constant demand by leading jazz and performance bands.

Imagine the atmosphere of an early 20th century theatre with state-of-the-art lighting, digital video, and surround sound. That's what you'll find in the meticulously renovated Community Theatre in Pine Bluff, Arkansas,
Our restoration is functionally complete, but we continue work on tweaks and details. We suspect that in a building this old, attention to tweaks and details are de rigueur activities.
Just to be in the theatre and see its fine points is a fascinating experience and well worth the trip, but the real fun starts when the lights go down. We have scheduled a series of world renowned entertainers live on stage throughout 2014. You can see great live shows in our people-friendly theater environment..
