"Ovation! Performing Arts returns to the stage this July with our sensational concert show, “Diamonds in the Rough”! Not every Broadway musical runs for years, or even months. But there are so many less successful musicals which have songs that are worth singing -- songs that we call Diamonds in the Rough. Join us as we celebrate Broadway and our return to the Bainbridge stage with your favorite local performers! Only two shows, on July 22nd and 23rd, so get your tickets now!"
