Emens Shows

Here Come the Mummies: Saturday, September 28th 8:00pm   It’s been a long and dusty road since 1922 when, at a dig in the desert south of Tunis, Professor Nigel Quentin Fontenelle Dumblucke IV (1895-1973) unearthed the ruins of an ancient discotheque to find a dozen undead Egyptian mummies inexplicably throwing down what he dubbed, “Terrifying Funk From Beyond the Grave.”  

See what all is coming to Emens for the 2013 - 2014 Season.
