The Hendersonville Community Theatre presents “Bye Bye Birdie”

A campy musical send-up of the late 1950s, small-town America, teenagers, and rock & roll. Teen heartthrob Conrad Birdie has been drafted, so he chooses All-American girl Kim MacAfee for a very public farewell kiss. Inspired by the phenomenon of Elvis Presley and his draft notice into the Army.

Musical Comedy Book by Michael Stewart, Music by Charles Strouse, Lyrics by Lee Adams, originally produced by Edward Padula

Rhythm & Brews

Rhythm & Brews continues the tradition of bringing you popular local craft beverages together with original and talented musicians, local food and activities to entertain all ages. Including live music, food, beer, wine and cider from local companies, and a children’s area. Located on Main Street between Caswell and Allen Streets, shows run from 5:30-9:30pm. Tickets and wristbands, for the purchase of beer, wine and hard cider, will be located at the Downtown Hendersonville tent. Please leave your pets comfortably at home.

On July 18th Rhythm & Brews Concert series presents two bands that will not only draw a crowd, but will pull the audience into an energetic and gritty musical experience. Kenny George Band, hailing from Aiken, SC, starts the evening off at 5:30 PM. The band describes itself as a ragtag bunch, whose music and songwriting is honest and organic, with passion, purpose and sincerity—and no pretence. Kenny George and Scott Rankin anchor the band with guitars and vocals along with Randy Borawski on drums, C. Marshall Ely playing the pedal steel guitar and Brooks Andrews on bass. In 2016, the band was voted South Carolina Artists to Watch by the South Carolina Music Guide. Continuing the momentum at 7:30 PM will be the Colby Deitz Band.

The Hendersonville Community Theatre’s Second Stage presents ‘U Rang Durang?’

“U Rang Durang?” includes two of Durang’s most popular one acts, For Whom the Southern Belle Tolls and  ‘dentity Crisis, combined together into one night of bizarre hilarity. These crackpot comedies both turn family upside down in a way that only Christopher Durang can.

For Whom the Southern Bell Tolls

In this parody of THE GLASS MENAGERIE, the fading Southern belle, Amanda, tries to prepare her hyper-sensitive, hypochondriacal son, Lawrence, for “the feminine caller.” Terrified of people, Lawrence plays with his collection of glass cocktail stirrers. Ginny, the feminine caller, is hard of hearing and overbearingly friendly. Brother Tom wants to go the movies, where he keeps meeting sailors who need to be put up in his room. Amanda tries to face everything with “charm and vivacity,” but sometimes she just wants to hit somebody.

‘dentity Crisis

Recovering from a nervous breakdown, Jane is nursed and nagged by her relentlessly cheerful mother, and confused by her oversexed brother—who keeps changing into her father, her grandfather and her mother’s French lover. Eventually all (including Jane’s psychiatrist, who undergoes a sex change operation and swaps places with his wife) change characters again and become Jane herself—leaving her with no identity at all and pointing up the near impossibility of self-identification in our uncertain times.

Stone Soup- Theatre for Young Audiences

Stone Soup- Theatre for Young Audiences

The classic folktale of the feared strangers who inspire a whole community through the use of one little stone charms its way onto our main stage this spring in a world premiere musical. When war-weary foreigners arrive in the village square, fear and suspicion reign. But as the outsiders start to make soup out of a stone, each of the locals is prompted to contribute to the ever-growing, communal meal.

Come share this ageless story with us as it serves up a delightfully poignant reminder that community is built one ingredient at a time.
