The Unity of Bellevue church is taking full advantage of its newly renovated performing arts center this month with three different shows set to hit the stage.

On Sunday, Nov. 16 at 2 p.m., Purple Phoenix Productions is hosting its next salute to musical legends with singer Sheldon Craig and the Purple Phoenix Orchestra performing “Unforgettable: the Nat ‘King’ Cole Songbook.

Craig, whose Broadway and acting credits include Ragtime, Smokey Joe’s Cafe, Starlight Express, and Dreamgirls, is slated to perform more than 30 of Cole’s greatest hits including “Mona Lisa,” “Lush Life,” “Walking My Baby Back Home,” and his iconic hit “Unforgettable.”

The following week, the group will debut its performance of “Doubt: A Parable” directed by David Duvall. The 2005 Pulitzer Prize and Tony award winner for best play centers on the suspicions of a principal of a Catholic school who thinks the new priest is taking advantage of a male student.

Without any proof, she embarks on a campaign to remove the priest from the school in order to protect the students creating doubt among everyone involved.

The four performance show opens Thursday Nov. 20 at 7:30 p.m., with two 8 p.m. shows Nov. 21, and 22, and a 2:30 p.m. matinee on Sunday, Nov. 23 at 2:30 p.m.

The following Sunday, Nov. 30, at 2 p.m., the UPAC will host its first Michael Powers Group Holiday Show featuring the jazz musicians hits from his two holiday records “Frosty’s Funky Holiday” and “Frosty the Bluesman.”

Tickets for any of the shows start at $20 for general admission and $15 for students under the age of 16.
