Two Shows Today (and Three Next Weekend)

My heart goes out to the cast and crew of the three shows that took the show this weekend. Whenever you stage a show, you always fear this kind of weather, because it keeps away all but the most hardy of theatre-goers.

Thankfully, things are warming up and the roads are (mostly) clear, so hopefully you'll get to see one of the shows running this weekend - and if not, they all have more performances next weekend!

Here's the lineup:

- I Love You... You're Perfect... Now Change - ARTS presents this musical comedy in the Renaissance Ballroom (Old Huntington High School). Shows will be presented today and Feb. 5-7. Dinner is at 6:30 p.m. and the show begins at 8:00. Tickets for the show and dinner is $25.00 per person and $10.00 for show only. A group rate is available for groups of 10 or more. The story is based around four couples who take the audience through the whole journey of love, dating, and relationships and pokes fun at the process we go through in search of a mate.

- The Pirates of Penzance - the Charleston Light Opera Guild presents the Gilbert & Sullivan’s musical comedy today and Feb. 7 at 3 p.m. and Feb. 5 and 6 at 7:30 p.m. All shows are at the Light Opera Guild Theater on the corner of Tennessee Avenue and Roane Street in West Charleston. Tickets are $15 and it is festival seating. The box office number is 304-342-9312 - for more info go to www.charlestonlightoperaguild.org.
