Glow Announces the 2021 Festival Season!

Announcing Glow’s 2021 Summer Festival Season 

This August 19-29 we promise to reflect on all that we’ve been through and celebrate all that lies ahead.  We’re preparing to #GlowOn with live performances!

In August we’ll bring you a compact, safe and innovative season that provides everything you’ve come to expect from Glow: thought-provoking, relevant and beautifully conceived productions of musical theatre and opera with exceptional performers and live musicians.

We are ecstatic to perform in a new venue for 2021- The Fred Collins Performing Arts Stage at the Kroc Center!  Located in Downtown Greenville with ample free parking, this theater not only provides the intimacy you crave, but is also spacious enough to accommodate our expansive productions and allow social distancing.

Rock Opera

Rebellious. Revolutionary. Relevant.

A fusion of rock, pop, musical theatre and opera.

August 19, 20, 21, 27 & 28 at 8pm, August 22 & 29 at 3pm

With a kaleidoscope of song, dance and poetry, Rock Opera confronts our recent collective experience having undergone a national pandemic, a re-emergence of racial reckoning and cultural chaos. Personal perspectives from the cast mix with legendary and revitalizing music from productions and artists like Queen, Marvin Gaye, Foreigner, Jesus Christ Superstar, Rent, Carmen and Tosca. Celebrate the resilience of the human spirit in this truly epic musical performance! Seating is limited- reserve your tickets early.


Elegant. Intimate. Uplifting.

Your favorite love duets and arias sung by two international opera superstars.

August 25 at 8pm, August 28 at 3pm

Experience the passion, thrill, and power that is unique to opera. Swoon-worthy tenor Hugo Vera from The Metropolitan Opera and soprano primadonna Marina Harris from the San Francisco Opera join their powerhouse voices together for an exhilarating evening of operative love duets and famous arias. Featuring selections by Verdi, Puccini, Mozart, and Leoncavallo (among many others) this passionate concert is a must see for opera lovers and those new to opera. Seating is very limited-reserve your tickets early

The Jenna & Christian Show

Personal. Humorous. Heart-warming.

A special once in a lifetime concert featuring Glow co-founders (and married couple), Jenna and Christian Elser. 

August 26 & 29 at 8pm 

Delight in love with Glow’s co-founders Jenna & Christian as they share anecdotes from their “showmance-turned-love-story” as well as their most cherished memories from Glow’s past seasons. Revel in this rare and charming treat as they sing their favorites from Broadway’s greatest productions like South PacificAnnie Get Your Gun, Camelot, and I Do! I Do!  Be sure to reserve your seat for this limited event.
