FREE ONCE screening at the Modern!
Tickets are required and seating is limited. Free tickets will be available at the Modern's admission desk beginning Friday, February 6 at 10 am.

To celebrate February’s arrival of the musical ONCE to Bass Performance Hall, Performing Arts Fort Worth and the Modern are hosting a free screening of the 2007 film that inspired the Tony Award-winning musical. Join us Sunday, February 8, at 7 pm at the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth. Come early to catch an acoustic set from local singer/songwriter Chris Johnson of Telegraph Canyon. Doors open at 6 pm. A cash bar is available. Enter for your chance to win a pair of tickets to the musical's opening night at Bass Hall. 

Winner of eight Tony Awards, the musical ONCE tells an unforgettable story about going for your dreams, not living in fear, and the power of music to connect all of us.

A vacuum repairman (Glen Hansard) moonlights as a street musician and hopes for his big break. One day a Czech immigrant (Marketa Irglova), who earns a living selling flowers, approaches him with the news that she is also an aspiring singer/songwriter. The pair decide to collaborate, and the songs that they compose reflect the story of their blossoming love.

The touring Broadway production comes to Bass Performance Hall February 18 through 22. For more information and to purchase tickets, visit www.basshall.com.
