Get set to fill your social calendar: The Marathon Center for the Performing Arts (MCPA) has announced its lineup for the fall 2017-2018 season. For the opening event, the MCPA (200 W. Main Cross St.) has recruited balladeer Johnny Mathis to perform on Sunday, September 10. The singer of classic hits like “Misty,” “Chances Are” and “It’s Not For Me To Say,” has garnered five Grammy nominations. Additional events for the season include a stage performance of Sense & Sensibility, Jane Austen’s timeless novel; hip hop and country music artist Kevin Mac; and the Gilbert and Sullivan operatic classic The Pirates of Penzance. Around Christmas, the MCPA will be bringing The Nutcracker back for a second year, and will close out the season in April with a performance by the bronze medal winner of the 15th Van Cliburn International Piano Competition.
