TCCA presents American Spirit on Feb. 28

 NASHVILLE, Tenn. –  Award-winning show producers, Matt Davenport Productions, will present their newest touring show, “American Spirit,” at the Payson High School Auditorium in Payson on Tuesday Feb. 28 at 7 p.m.

Initially inspired by the ten-year anniversary of the events of September 11, 2001, the “American Spirit” show concept developed by writers Matt Davenport and Scott Seidl has evolved into a montage of the moments, memories and music that embody the “American Spirit.”

More than a patriotic show, this fully costumed and choreographed production show, with a cast of 10 performers, will take the audience down memory lane through eyes of a slightly befuddled Mayor of Hometown, USA remembering the American Revolution, Civil War, Jazz, Broadway, Spirituals and more - America’s heroes on the battlefield and ball field rubbing elbows with entertainers and politicians alike.

“I saw something in my friends and neighbors that I recognize as uniquely American in the days and weeks after that infamous day; we wanted to put that pride - that shared history - at center stage,” says Mr. Davenport. Matt Davenport Productions has produced award-winning box office success across the United States since 1992.

The production will feature a soloist from Payson High School and members of the Payson Choral Society.  Concertgoers are encouraged to show their own “American Spirit” by wearing red, white and blue attire to this unique event.

Single tickets are $35 as available. Children and youth, grade 12 and under, will be admitted free when accompanied by a ticket holding adult. For more information visit the association website at or call 928-478-4363 or 928-474-4189. 

The Tonto Community Concert Association is committed to bringing quality entertainment to the Rim Country through an annual concert series and support of the fine arts in Payson schools. This series is intended as an enriching cultural experience for the people of Payson and those in surrounding communities.  Live On Stage, Inc. provides acclaimed, affordable entertainment attractions and support services to an American community of concert presenters.
