For The Vista
They’re back! After CCP gigs as Lancelot and Guinevere in Camelot, Beast and Beauty in Beauty and the Beast, newlyweds Nicole Bégué Hackmann and Nathanial Hackmann gave a concert two years ago before Nate left on a National tour. They are back onstage in Les Misérables at CCP, opening March 8, and due to the wonderful sold out success of their first duet concert, they are presenting another. Join them on March 30th as Nate & Nicole perform Golden Anniversary Songbook – Playhouse Songs of Yesterday & Tomorrow. The brilliant vocal styles and delightful repartee will make this an evening not be missed.
Nate has just returned from the National tour of Les Misérables and is starring as Jean Valjean in the brand new Playhouse production. Nicole is portraying the lovely Fantine. Their stunning vocal work and acting prowess are highlights of the show.
Nate & Nicole met and later dated as a result of their participation in the company at CCP. They have returned with their beautiful nearly one year old son, Alexander James (named in honor of Playhouse Producing Director James Crabtree) and are continuing their love of performing together here in Crossville. The concert will provide a fantastic opportunity to hear these favorites stretch their vocal wings and provide a variety of styles of music. Last time they sold out the house, so buy your tickets early!

CCP joins Coalition
The Cumberland County Playhouse has joined a statewide coalition comprised of more than 80 sports and entertainment organizations in support of legislative action to protect Tennessee fans from rogue ticket scalpers.
The Tennessee Sports & Entertainment Industry Coalition (TSEIC) is calling on the Tennessee General Assembly to approve common sense reforms this session so that the ticket resale market is safe for fans.
The proposed legislation, called the Fairness in Ticketing Act, will strengthen the free market by empowering fans to make informed decisions when they purchase tickets for music, sports and other performance events held in Tennessee.
“We are proud to stand with more than 80 artists, venues, and major events in support of the Fairness in Ticketing Act,” said Jim Crabtree, producing director of the Cumberland Playhouse. “Our number one priority is Tennessee patrons, and we’re tired of watching them be preyed upon night after night.”
by out-of-state scalpers.”
If passed, ticket brokers will be required to disclose certain information about the tickets they’re selling, such as the face value and exact location of the ticket, and whether or not the seller actually has the ticket in their possession.
