On Your Feet! Brings the Heat to Walton Arts Center

NORTHWEST ARKANSAS, October 16, 2018 – Based on the story of Grammy®-winning international superstar Gloria Estefan and her husband, producer and musician Emilio Estefan, On Your Feet! is coming to Walton Arts Center. The hit Broadway musical will run for an eight-show engagement Dec. 4-9.

Tickets start at $38 plus applicable fees and can be purchased in-person at the Walton Arts Center Box Office, by calling 479.443.5600 or by visiting waltonartscenter.org. Patrons also can get reserved parking for $7 when they purchase their show tickets.

Gloria Estefan has sold over 100 million records and sold out stadiums around the world. Emilio and Gloria Estefan together have won 26 Grammy Awards® – but their success in the music industry is only half the story.

From the heart of Havana to the streets of Miami came a cultural phenomenon unlike anything the music industry had ever seen. On Your Feet!  follows the Estefans' journey through adversity to superstardom, set to their chart-topping, smash hits including “Rhythm Is Gonna Get You,” “Conga,” “1-2-3,” “Get On Your Feet,” “Mi Tierra,” Don’t Want To Lose You Now” and “Reach,” in addition to an original song written by Gloria and her daughter Emily Estefan.

On Your Feet! is directed by two-time Tony Award® winner Jerry Mitchell (Kinky Boots, Hairspray) and choreographed by Tony Award nominee & Olivier Award winner Sergio Trujillo (Jersey Boys, Memphis), with an original book by Academy Award® winner Alexander Dinelaris (Birdman, The Bodyguard Musical).
