MAY RIVER THEATRE CO. PRESENTS NEW SUMMER SHOW
This summer, May River Theatre presents “The Outsiders,” a classic coming-of-age story based on a novel by S.E. Hinton and focused on themes of class conflict, acceptance, and loyalty.
“’The Outsiders’ has been a part of our school curriculum for years and is a staple of modern American literature that is loved by all ages,” said director Michelle McElroy, who recently directed Main Street Youth Theatre’s production of “High School Musical.” “It is also holds great relevance to many American struggles today.”
Class is back in session at Main Street Youth Theatre, where “Disney’s High School Musical” takes the stage June 19-30.
Based on the popular Disney movie, this high-energy production follows the unlikely pair of basketball captain Troy and brainy Gabriella as they surprise their friends by auditioning for the school musical — and deal with young love, friendship and family while balancing their classes and extracurricular activities.
COME SEE HOW HILTON HEAD ISLAND COMMEMORATES FREEDOM
In June of 1865, freedom came to the then-Confederate South when the detestable practice of slavery was put to an end. For a people who had struggled for centuries, it was a day of tremendous joy. On Hilton Head Island and in Bluffton, special celebrations this month will mark the occasion with live music, authentic Gullah cuisine and a remembrance of the day the march to freedom began.
Tickets are on sale for the inaugural Hilton Head Island Music Festival, to be held June 22-23 at the Coastal Discovery Museum.
The two-day festival, organized by Bear Foot Sports, will feature 16 performances by local, state and regional acts.
