Poppin’ Like it’s Hot


This year’s Nationwide Insurance Picnic with the Pops runs June 19th through July 31st, and will feature Grammy Award-winning singer/songwriter Peter Cetera, Kansas, The Ohio State University Marching Band and Wicked Divas (two of Broadway's Elphabas from WICKED, Julia Murney and Stephanie J. Block, together for the first time). The 2010 Nationwide Insurance Popcorn Pops runs June 25th through July 23rd, and will feature three special family concerts recommended for children ages 3-12. The 4th of July program, Patriotic Pops, will, of course, conclude with fireworks.

Most of the regular season and several of the Popcorn Pops are led by Albert-George Schram, a man who should really have a cartoon modeled after himself. His talent and personality highlight each evening spent with the Pops.

As always, you can enjoy the evening “picnic style” on the lawn with your own gourmet fare or purchase reserved seating for one of the center stage tables and have your evening catered by Vito’s. Either way, rain or shine, the Pops will go on. Tickets can be purchased at www.picnicwiththepops.com for $12 or are available at Giant Eagle locations for a discounted price of $11. See you there!
