The story follows sixteen year-old Rachel Stein who is having a bad year. Her father hasn't changed out of his pajamas since 9/11. Her mother has begun a close, personal relationship with Jesus. Her new neighbor, a sixteen year-old Elvis impersonator, has faller for her hard. Her only hope is that Stephen Hawking will save them all. This award-winning, provocative, dark comedy pits science, religion and suburbia against one another - and treats them all with compassion, humor and heartbreak.
The Savannah Sipping Society
August 16,17,18 and 23,24,25; Rowan County Arts Center
written by Jessie Jones, Nicholas Hope & Jamie Wooten
directed by George David McKee
In this lively, side-splitting comedy, four unique Southern women, all needing to escape the sameness of their day-to-day routines, are drawn together by fate and find friendship, hope & healing in places where they least expect it. At an impromptu happy hour, they decide it's high time to reclaim the enthusiasm for life they've lost throughout the years. Randa, a perfectionist & workaholic; Dot who is still reeling from her husband's recent demise; earthy & boisterous Marlafaye, a good 'ole Texas gal; and Jinx, a spunky ball of fire - all discover lasting friendships and a renewed determination to live in the moment - and most importantly, realize it's never too late to make new old friends.
Dining with the Dead
October 18, 19 and 25,26 (Note: no Sunday matinee); Rowan County Arts Center
Written & Directed by JD Reeder
Kick off your Halloween celebration by visiting with some of Rowan County's most interesting personalities from the 1880's and 1890's. Bring a blanket in case of cool weather and gather at the Old Town Cemetery at sunset (Ashland Avenue) to hear stories from Morehead's colorful past, who will "rise from their graves" to relate tales of murder, mayhem, lost loves, and life's other triumphs and tragedies. The event continues with dinner at the Rowan County Arts Center, with another special, spooky surprise to follow. This reincarnation of an audience favorite will also be our 100th show!
