Country singer Lorrie Morgan performs Friday on Middletown’s Sorg stage

Butler Phil performs this weekend.

Songstress Lorrie Morgan is one of multiple well-known performers set to play at Middletown’s historic venue, and she is here this week.

“The Sorg has positioned itself as a multi-genre performance venue, attracting regional and national acts, ranging from country to classical and everything in between,” said Larry Mulligan, an executive board member for the Sorg Revitalization Group. “The Sorg is for everyone in the community, and we work hard to reflect that within our programming.”

Morgan will be in concert with special guest Morgan Cheyenne at the Sorg at 8 p.m. Friday. The cost of advance, reserved seats are $35; tickets for premium seating are $45 and the cost of super premium tickets are $55 in advance. The performance is made possible in part by grants from the Middletown Community Foundation and First Financial Bank.

“We’ve done a lot of work in the theater, and we are trying to focus on the commercial building, and bringing in larger programming like Lorrie Morgan and Rhonda Vincent, and other national acts,” Mulligan said.

Morgan has achieved 40 Billboard-charting singles, including three number one songs “Five Minutes,” “What Part of No” and “I Didn’t Know My Own Strength,” along with 11 additional Top 10 hits. She has sold more than eight million albums and has been honored with four “Female Vocalist of the Year” awards, to name a few.

Sorg’s line-up of shows will continue to bring well-known artists to the stage, along with live theater and music productions.

“‘We’ve brought in over 17,000 guests to downtown Middletown in 2022. That means a lot of seats are being filled in restaurants, bars, and taverns, and people are seeing what we have to offer in Middletown.” Mulligan said.
