Appalachian Music Concert: Dale Jett & Hello Stranger

(Snow Date: Saturday, February 27)
Adults $10; Students free

A third generation member of the legendary Carter Family (son of Janette Carter and grandson of A.P. and Sara Carter), Dale Jett carries on his family’s music tradition. Hello Stranger, which also features the talents of Teresa Jett and Oscar Harris, provides the closest possible link to the Original Carter Family. Described as a “true Appalachian Americana experience,” their performances blend traditional songs, historical facts, and stories about growing up within the “family circle.”

Oscar Wilde’s brilliant and wicked comic masterpiece defines wit and style. This “trivial comedy for serious people” is at once blissfully silly and outrageously shrewd. More than 120 years after its first performance, The Importance of Being Earnest continues to delight audiences with its playful language, charming characters, and biting look at contemporary society.

Thanks to the BRCC Cultural Affairs Committee for support of this American Shakespeare Center on Tour production.

Lanford Wilson’s complex play probes deeply - with great dramatic and even comic effect - into the lives of four young adults coming to terms with a fatal boating accident.  As Anna and Larry mourn their drowned roommate Robbie, they are joined in their Manhattan loft by Anna’s boyfriend Burton and Robbie’s terrifying, yet fascinating brother Pale. The four attempt to make sense of their lives, reconsidering their own identities and relationships in light of the recent tragedy. Randy Lilly directs this BRCC Student Production, presented by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, Inc., New York.  Adult themes and language.

This award-winning stage adaptation by renowned playwright James DeVita takes Lewis Carroll’s original Through the Looking Glass and runs with it.  This delightful romp through Alice’s looking glass land retains all the familiar characters – AND introduces dozens of new ones:  a baseball team, a gospel group called The Responsibilities, a train conductor, a peanut salesman, detectives, a Miss America pageant, star-struck tourists, plastic-light-saber wielding knights…and much more.  This BRCC Theatre Workshop for Youth production is directed by Justine Juart, and produced by special arrangement with Pioneer Drama Service, Inc., Englewood, Colorado.
