Tonight the award-winning musical Aida, with a score by Elton and Tim Rice, opens at Artpark in Lewiston, New York. 

Nikki Renee Daniels, who was seen in Les Miserables, heads the cast. She'll be joined by Michael Hunsaker (whose credits include Ragtime) as Radames and Jacqueline Bayne (Dirty Rotten Scroundels) as Amneris

Artpark President George Osborne said, "The Artpark & Company board of directors came to a consensus that this was going to be the year to make a 'splash' with regards to Artpark's theatrical programming. We are continually striving to regain the level of excellence that Artpark's Broadway musicals were once reputed for, and we are extremely confident that this show will do just that." 

It runs through August 19.

Show times are August 9, 10 and 11 at 8 p.m., Aug. 12 at 2 p.m., Aug. 16 at 2 and 8 p.m., Aug. 17 and 18 at 8 p.m. and the 19th at 2 p.m..
