Two Shows Takes The Stage This Weekend!

This weekend you have two shows to choose from (which is a lot more manageable than the five we had last weekend, I'm sure you'll agree). (Although it's always nice to have lots of shows to choose from.) (Yeah.)

Sorry, got carried away there. Here are the shows - a Shakespeare classic in Charleston, and a musical legend in Huntington:

- Man of La Mancha - The 5th Avenue Theatre Company presents this classic stage musical Oct. 23 and 24 at 8 p.m. and Oct. 25 at 2:30 p.m. at the Jean Carlo Stephenson Auditorium in Huntington City Hall. Tickets are $10 for Adults and $8 for Children 12 and under. I've talked to several people who saw it last weekend and they all raved about it, saying it's one of their all-time favorite productions. Highly recommended!

- The Two Gentlemen of Verona
- The Shakespeare play will be presented by the Charleston Stage Company Oct. 22-24 at 7:30 p.m. at the historic Capitol Theater on Summers Street in downtown Charleston. Adults $15, Students $10. All I know is that the director is theatre pro (and my pal) K. C. Bragg, and therefore it must be a terrific production. I hear great things about this Shakespeare fellow, too. Also recommended!
