December 7 - 16  ALBANY CIVIC THEATER PRESENTS ALTAR BOYZ
Albany Civic Theater
235 Second Avenue - Albany, NY  (518) 23.
ALTAR BOYZ is a foot-stomping, rafter-raising, musical comedy about a fictitious Christian boy-band on the last leg of their national 'Raise the Praise' tour. The Boyz are five all-singing, all-dancing heartthrobs from Ohio: Matthew, Mark, Luke, Juan and Abraham. As they perform and develop a rapport with the audience, the Boyz question their loyalty to each other and ask whether or not it’s faith that is really holding them together. They finally deliver a message of unity – that 'there is no star as bright as its constellation, no harmony in a single voice.' Join the Boyz in their quest to “unburden the soul” through song and laughter!

Performances are from 12/7/18 – 12/16/18 Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 PM Sundays at 3:00 PM

Tickets are $20, and are available by calling 518-462-1297. Online reservations will open two weeks before the event at www.albanycivictheater.org
