Show runs Fri Feb 21 – Thu Feb 29, 2020

At the Summerville Community Theater
Presents: A Public Reading Of An Unproduced Screenplay About The Death Of Walt Disney
Written by Lucas Hnath

Walt would like to read you a story. It’s a story he wrote about himself, and the empire he made, and the city of the future he’s building that will change everything. It’s about his brother, and it’s about everyone, and how they all love him, and how they’ll all miss him so much when he’s gone. ...Right? Lucas Hnath’s A Public Reading is a darkly comic inversion of the Walt Disney persona, a funny and moving meditation on fame, legacy, and the things, and people, you leave behind.

ANDERSON EAST & FOY VANCE: 12 ROUNDS TOUR

NS2 & CMH PRESENT:
ANDERSON EAST & FOY VANCE: 12 ROUNDS TOUR
Show Time: 8:00 PM | Doors Open: 7:00 PM

Equally brash, bold and entirely uncompromising in their respective artistry, Anderson East and Foy Vance are set to hit the road together next spring for the stripped-down and double-billed 12 Rounds Tour. “It’s kind of terrifying but in a good way,” East says of switching up the typical format and touring with his longtime friend where every night of the 19-date trek, the wise-cracking troubadours will share the stage, swap songs and cover each other’s tunes. Oh, and also likely hurl a friendly insult or two each other’s way. Says Vance of the impetus for the joint tour, “It’s really a case of, why not? If the feeling’s good, go with it.

Similar to the impromptu nature of their deciding to tour together, both men agree the forthcoming jaunt will be an exercise in letting go and taking risks. “The possibilities are endless,” East says excitedly of what promises to be one of the year’s most thrilling outings. “I really feel like it’s going to be like an exhibition boxing match every night. Hopefully I don’t get the crap beat out of me.”

Category/Venue: Charleston Music Hall

NS2 & CMH Presents:
AN EVENING WITH AMY GRANT
Show Starts: 8:00 PM | Doors Open: 7:00 PM

Conventional wisdom has it that Amy Grant put Contemporary Christian Music on the map, becoming the first CCM artist to have a platinum record, the first to hit No. 1 on the Pop charts, and the first to perform at the GRAMMY Awards. Since then, Grant has been strumming her way through a thirty-plus year adventure as a singer-songwriter, author, television host, and speaker.

Early on, Grant’s iconic voice became instantly recognizable in both the Christian and pop worlds. Over the years, she has sold more than 30 million albums world-wide, including three multi-platinum, six platinum, and four gold. Her chart performance has also been consistent throughout her career, boasting six No. 1 hits, 10 “Top 40” Pop singles, 17 “Top 40” Adult Contemporary tracks and multiple Contemporary Christian chart-toppers. In recognition of such success, Grant has received 6 GRAMMY Awards and 26 Dove Awards, a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and a star on the Music City Walk of Fame. Additionally, she was most recently inducted into the Gospel Music Hall of Fame in Nashville.

TOMMY EMMANUEL, CGP
WITH SPECIAL GUEST IDA MAE
Show Time: 8:00 PM | Doors Open 7:00 PM

Tommy Emmanuel has achieved enough musical milestones to satisfy several lifetimes. Or at least they would if he was the kind of artist who was ever satisfied. At the age of six, he was touring regional Australia with his family band. By 30, he was a rock n’ roll lead guitarist burning up stadiums in Europe. At 44, he became one of five people ever named a Certified Guitar Player by his idol, music icon Chet Atkins. Today, he plays hundreds of sold-out shows every year from Nashville to Sydney to London. All the while, Tommy has hungered for what’s next. When you’re widely acknowledged as the international master of the solo acoustic guitar, what’s next is Accomplice One, an album of collaborations with some of the finest singers, songwriters and, yes, guitarists alive today – a list including Jason Isbell, Mark Knopfler, Rodney Crowell, Jerry Douglas, Amanda Shires, Ricky Skaggs, J.D. Simo, David Grisman, Bryan Sutton, Suzy Bogguss and many more.





SCHEHERAZADE

Category/Venue: The Gaillard Center

Two Shows: Fri Feb 28, 7:30 PM and Sat Feb 29, 7:30 PM

The Charleston Symphony Orchestra Presents:
SCHEHERAZADE

Daniel Moody, Countertenor
CSO Chorus, Dr. Robert Taylor, Director
College of Charleston Concert Choir, Dr. Robert Taylor, Director
Ken Lam, Conductor

East meets West as the Charleston Symphony performs Rimsky-Korsakov’s Scheherazade, which is based on the collection of middle-eastern folk tales, One Thousand and One Nights. In Rimsky-Korsakov’s own words, “The Sultan Schariar, convinced that all women are false and faithless, vowed to put to death each of his wives after the first nuptial night. But the Sultana Scheherazade saved her life by entertaining her lord with fascinating tales, told seriatim, for a thousand and one nights. The Sultan, consumed with curiosity, postponed from day to day the execution of his wife, and finally repudiated his bloody vow entirely.”
