GREEN BAY, Wis. (WFRV) – Meyer Theatre has booked four shows for its “official” 2021 live, in-person season as a sign that the “beat goes on” at the downtown facility.

“Keeping everyone safe and healthy is our number one priority,” the theater says on its Facebook page. “We have the following plans in place to abide by mandates and still have a great experience at the Meyer Theatre.”

Other shows are booked, and Let Me Be Frank Productions has resumed performances, though the calendar remains flexible. Info: meyertheatre.org.

Here is a look at the season, with information from the theater’s website.

+ Firefall and Atlanta Rhythm Section: 7:30 p.m. Jan. 22.

“Atlanta Rhythm Section carries the mantle of ‘Southern Rock,’ but by performing more musically diverse hits with softer, pop flavor, they have a sound all their own.” Hits include “So Into You” and “Imaginary Lover.”

“Firefall’s layered harmonies backed by driving rhythms transcends may genres from rock to country to AC and brought the band platinum and gold success.” Hits include “You Are the Women,” “Strange Way” and “Just Remember I Love You.”

+ Femmes of Rock: 7:30 p.m. Feb. 26.

“Featuring the music of AC/DC, ELD, Queen, Led Zeppelin, The Eagles, Jimi Hendrix, Prince, Metallica, David Bowe, Pink Floyd and more, Femmes of Rock, led by violinist and arranger, Nina DiGregorio, has rocked audiences worldwide with their blistering solos, unique arrangements – not to mention their beauty and charm.” 

+ “Jane Lynch & Kate Flannery: Two Lost Souls:” 7:30 p.m. March 18.

“Emmy-award winning actor Jane Lynch (‘Glee’) and Kate Flannery (‘The Office’) put their one-of-a-kind spin on songs from Broadway to The Barry Sisters to the Swingin’ Sixties. Like the Rat Pack with a couple of broads.” 

+ The Oak Ridge Boys: 7:30 p.m. April 11.

“The Oak Ridge Boys have one of the most distinctive and recognizable sounds in the music industry. Their four-part harmonies and upbeat songs have sold over 30 million records and spawned 25 Number One hits.
