Cross that River
During these racially charged times in the United States with the focus on racial discrimination across the country, Cross That River takes audiences on a musical journey into why Black Lives Matter. Cross That River represents a significant moment in American history where Black Cowboys lived and helped settle the West. It is a story that’s never been told in this way.
The unsettled West of the 1860s provides a new life and new dreams for Blue, a run-away slave, who escapes from slavery to Texas to become one of America’s first Black Cowboys. This compelling tale of freedom integrates fiction with historical fact, and each song presents a different page in this complicated chapter of American History.

One Night in Memphis:
Presley, Perkins, Lewis & Cash
One Night in Memphis tributes a night in rock and roll history that still lives on today. On December 4th, 1956, Carl Perkins, along with his brothers Clayton and Jay booked a recording session at Sam Phillip's Sun Records studios in Memphis, TN. On the session as well as one of Sam Phillip’s latest acquisitions to his stable of acts, a young and cocky piano player from Ferriday, Louisiana by the name of Jerry Lee Lewis. Not too long after they got a satisfactory take, Elvis Presley dropped by (a big star already) and listened in. Johnny Cash dropped in as well. A jam session then ensued and the engineer that day Jack Clement kept the tape rolling without the knowledge of anyone. What survives today is a recording of an event that is a momentous eavesdropping on American recording artist icons in their prime.

Comedian, Author & Singer
Comedienne, author, and singer Heather Land tells it like it is with sarcasm and Southern charm. Practically overnight, Heather burst through the clutter of the online world with her hilarious and witty videos, which have garnered more than 300 million views. After privately sharing her hilarious musings about the oddities of daily life with her immediate friends, they dared her to share them publicly. When she reluctantly posted online, millions of people shared the videos and a true social media star was born. Heather’s audience was first drawn in by her quick wit filtered through a high-pitched Snapchat voice changer, but they have remained connected to her because of the way she shows us how to laugh at the chaos we all live through on a daily basis.

Beaufort Theatre Company
The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee
Winner of the Tony and the Drama Desk Awards for Best Book, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee has charmed audiences across the country with its effortless wit and humor. Featuring a fast-paced, wildly funny and touching book by Rachel Sheinkin and a truly fresh and vibrant score by William Finn, this bee is one unforgettable experience. An eclectic group of six mid-pubescents vie for the spelling championship of a lifetime. While candidly disclosing hilarious and touching stories from their home lives, the tweens spell their way through a series of (potentially made-up) words, hoping never to hear the soul-crushing, pout-inducing, life-un-affirming "ding" of the bell that signals a spelling mistake. Six spellers enter; one speller leaves! At least the losers get a juice box.
