Alice Cooper’s 16th Annual Christmas Pudding
Dec. 9, 5:30 p.m. (doors open); 7 p.m. (show time)

Rock pioneer Alice Cooper knows how to throw one heck of a party … and what a guest list! This year his annual fundraising event at Celebrity Theatre in downtown Phoenix will include such members of the FM radio pantheon as Slash (Guns N’ Roses), Rob Halford (Judas Priest) and Ace Frehley (KISS). The star-studded evening also will feature performances by Alice himself, blues/rock icon Edgar Winter, bassist David Ellefson, industrial rockers Filter, comedian Gary Mule Deer, guitarist Nita Strauss, drummer Glen Sobel and country band Sixwire.

Additionally on the bill are the Solid Rock Dancers and the winner of this year’s Proof is in the Pudding Musical Talent Search.

Proceeds from this exciting evening help to support Alice Cooper’s Solid Rock Teen Center, which helps disadvantaged youth by offering free afterschool activities, including music, dance and art lessons.

Celebrity Theatre, 440 N. 32nd Street, Phoenix, AZ. For more information call (602) 267-1600 or visit http://celebritytheatre.ticketforce.com, or www.facebook.com/acsolidrock.


Jesus Christ Superstar Sing-A-Long, featuring Ted Neeley
Dec. 15, 7 p.m.

Andrew Lloyd Webber’s groundbreaking Broadway musical stirred up the world when it hit the stage in 1971. Two years later, it was filmed by Norman Jewison (Rollerball, Moonstruck, Fiddler on the Roof, The Thomas Crown Affair, etc.), starring Ted Neeley in the role of Jesus.

This screening of a new digital print will include a costume contest (judged by Neeley, naturally!), a VIP reception before the film and a meet-and-greet afterward. Subtitles will help anyone who doesn’t know the words to sing along with Neeley, Yvonne Elliman, Josh Mostel, et al. to songs such as “I Don’t Know How to Love Him” and “Superstar.”

This rare opportunity to watch the film with Neeley will be one of the final chances in 2017 for audiences anywhere to see this new print with its star. Neeley resumes his hectic touring schedule with a live production of Jesus Christ Superstar in Europe starting in the spring of 2018.

The Loft Cinema, 3233 E. Speedway. For more information call 795-0844 or visit loftcinema.org, or tedneeley.com.
