In the quaint village of Sleepy Hollow, stories of wonder and strangeness surround the legend of a headless Horseman.

The whole family will enjoy this spooky Halloween treat.

79th Avenue Theatre at the Myrtle Beach Higher Education Center

Music and mayhem during a live broadcast of The Mutual Manhattan Variety Cavalcade from the Hotel Astor’s Algonquin Room on Dec. 21, 1942. The spirit of a bygone era, when the world was at war and pop music meant “Strike Up the Band” and “Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy,” (both in this show), is captured as the harassed producer copes with a drunk lead singer, the delivery boy who wants a chance in front of the mike, the second banana who dreams of singing a ballad, and the trumpet playing sound effects man who chooses a fighter plane over Glenn Miller. Featuring the CCU Jazz Ensemble.

Winner of seven TONY awards and the 1962 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, we follow J. Pierrepont Finch as he climbs his way up the ladder at the World Wide Wicket Corporation instructed by the handbook "How to Succeed In Business Without Really Trying." Filled with frivolity, ambition...and frequent coffee break...this satire of big business a la Mad Men is a send-up of 1960’s values in corporate America and will leave audiences rolling in the aisles.

A whirlwind of romance and wit, Jon Jory’s adaptation breathes new life into Jane Austen’s timeless classic. With four sisters, an overbearing mother bent on match-making and unwanted suitors, Elizabeth Bennet can’t escape the ever-present obligation to find a husband. When the prideful and enigmatic Mr. Darcy enters her life, Elizabeth is faced with an intellectual (and handsome) rival. Can she put aside her prejudices and see through Darcy’s stoic exterior or will her stubbornness get in the way of finding true love? Come and enjoy an evening of delicious verbal repartee with these truly beloved characters!
