Hurrah Players WEBSITE

The Hurrah Players, Virginia’s leading family theatre company, presents Disney’s The Little Mermaid under the direction of Hugh R. Copeland, the founder and artistic director of The Hurrah Players Family Theatre Company and performing arts academy. Since its incorporation in 1984, The Hurrah Players have been and will continue to be, a shining example to both our students and our community that theatre arts can be a vehicle not only for educational enrichment but for the emotional and social well-being of the participants as well.

Based on one of Hans Christian Andersen’s most beloved stories and the classic animated film, Disney’s THE LITTLE MERMAID is a beautiful love story for the ages. With music by eight-time Academy Award winner, Alan Menken, lyrics by Howard Ashman and Glenn Slater and a compelling book by Doug Wright, this fishy fable will capture your heart with its irresistible songs, including “Under the Sea,” “Kiss the Girl” and “Part of Your World.”

Disney’s THE LITTLE MERMAID is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI)

Chatham County Line WEBSITE

Chatham County Line

Come 2020, Chatham County Line will have been a staple of the North Carolina music scene for two decades. Embracing an all acoustic instrumentation and the modern songwriting of leader Dave Wilson the band has graced stages all across the U.S. as well as mainland Europe, Scandinavia, Ireland and the United Kingdom. With seven studio albums of original material to pull from, CCL has a sound all their own and a stage show to match. Songwriter, guitarist and vocalist Dave Wilson pulls tunes out of an ether that is inspired by a shelf bending collection of vinyl records from the 20’s to the 20’s. One listen to their all covers release “Sharing the Covers” [Yep Roc Records 2019] will give you an idea of those inspirations, with songs from the likes of Wilco and Beck shared with those of John Lennon, Tom Petty and John Hartford.

With the recent retirement of founding member Chandler Holt (banjo), the band decided to push their sound a little bit more into the modern world and embrace the use of drums onstage. “We’ve had drums on several albums, most notably Wildwood, and our audience always responded well to those tunes” says Dave Wilson. John Teer who rotates from Mandolin to Fiddle all while singing soaring harmony adds “We’ve done an Electric Holiday Tour for the past 12 years that features an expanded group of musicians on the stage so we’re no stranger to a backbeat.”

With the release of 2020’s Strange Fascination on YepRoc Records, look for the core of CCL; Dave Wilson, John Teer, and Greg Readling [Bass, Pedal Steel] as well as a rotating cadre of drummers to keep traveling the highways, byways and airways to share their special canon of songs with the world.
