The summer time is usually pretty quiet at Walton Arts Center, but that won’t be the case next week.

Horns will be blowing, toes will be tapping, and Baum Walker Hall will be buzzing with the arts center’s final Broadway show of the year, Motown the Musical, playing June 27-July 2.

The show tells the story of Motown founder Berry Gordy, the featherweight boxer turned music mogul that helped to launched the careers of legendary performers like Diana Ross, Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder, Smokey Robinson, Marvin Gaye and others.

The musical was written by Gordy himself, based on his autobiography, To Be Loved. The show includes classic hits such as “My Girl” and “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough,” and others.
