Proctors Announces New Concert, Six More Shows


Veteran soul diva Patti LaBelle is slated to step into the spotlight at Proctors in Schenectady at 8pm on Saturday, October 29.

From her early days fronting the girl group Patti LaBelle & the Bluebelles through her iconic rock ‘n’ soul group LaBelle to her ongoing soul career, LaBelle’s big voice and exciting performance has consistently brought down the house.

With prices ranging from $25-$85, tickets will go on sale to the general public at 10am on Tuesday (September 6).

And here’s a round-up of more new shows announced for Proctors:

Fireworks Ensemble with Empire State Youth Orchestra
Saturday, February 11, 8pm
Empire State Youth Orchestra and area schools will get the chance to learn from and perform with the riveting Fireworks Ensemble — a small group making big waves on the classical scene with edgy moves like a rock-inspired take on Stravinsky.

“ChipandGus: A Comedy with Balls”
Thursday-Saturday, April 6–8, 7:30pm
“ChipandGus: A Comedy with Balls” is unlike any play that’s come before: a funny, fast, moving and profound piece that happens while two guys — writer/actors Christopher Patrick Mullen and John Ahlin — are playing ping pong. The play, which takes place in the back room of a run down sports bar, is actually set in Schenectady.

Neil deGrasse Tyson: The Cosmic Perspective

“Hedwig and the Angry Inch”
Tuesday & Wednesday, May 16 & 17, 7:30pm
Brilliantly innovative, heartbreaking, and wickedly funny, “Hedwig and the Angry Inch” is the landmark musical by John Cameron Mitchell and Stephen Trask that Entertainment Weekly hailed as “groundbreaking and undoubtedly ahead of its time.”
