A 'Bury Home Campanion in Broadway A 'BURY HOME CAMPANION
Salisbury Symphony
Inspired by Garrison Keillor’s longtime NPR radio staple “A Prairie Home Companion”, the Salisbury Symphony’s 2017 Fundraiser will spotlight the gentle side of life here in “The ‘Bury”. Presented as a live radio show, it is full of the gentle wit ….part fact, part fantasy, part Lake Woebegone with maybe a little dash of Mayberry - but always true to the unique charm of our own town. Developed and scripted by The ‘Bury’s own Kent Bernhardt, the show will feature a host of familiar faces performing as the ‘Bury Home Companion Radio Players and Singers who will bring life to live radio ads and comedy sketches with characters like ‘Guy Noir’, who has now taken up residence in Salisbury in his search for truth. There’s WBTV’s David Whisenant as The ‘Bury’s official announcer, and even a “Sound Effects Guy”, who will add seasoning to our live radio presentation. “A ‘Bury Home Companion” will also spotlight musical talent from the region, from bluegrass to - believe it or not - opera. The ‘Bury has it all. One night only. Limited tickets available. All money raised goes directly to the Salisbury Symphony to help the organization bring quality music and music education programs to Salisbury and the entire region.

The Submission by Jeff Talbott in Broadway THE SUBMISSION BY JEFF TALBOTT
Three Bone Theatre
Winner- Outer Critics Circle John Gassner Award for Best New American Play “THE SUBMISSION is a raw, unsentimental play about race and gender that exposes the quiet prejudice and intolerance among even our most progressive thinkers. It is both uncomfortable and impossible to not watch." -Associated Press Three Bone Theatre presents the Charlotte premiere of The Submission by Jeff Talbott, a fiercely funny and intelligent new comic drama about the words we use to describe each other -- and the things we'll do to get what we want. Danny has written a complex new drama about an African-American family trying to get out of the Projects, and it has just been selected for the nation's preeminent play festival. Problem is: Danny, a young white playwright, submitted the work under a pen name in the hope of increasing its chances for production. So he hires Emilie, a black actress, to stand in for him as author. What starts as a terrible idea becomes more and more terrible as Danny drags Emilie, his boyfriend, and his best friend down a long and dirty path of truth, lies, revelation and betrayal. August 17-19, 24-26 at 8:00pm Duke Energy Theatre at Spirit Square Tickets:
