The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe
Jan 25 @ 10:00 am
South Carolina Children's Theatre

What begins as an innocent exploration of an old home, winds up taking siblings Lucy, Edmund, Susan and Peter far beyond their wildest imaginations, as they step through a huge wardrobe, into a land where an evil witch has taken control and misery reigns. They soon realize they haven’t arrived in Narnia by chance, but have been brought here to play a very important part in restoring natural order and keeping the peace in this magical land.

By demonstrating love, keeping faith and showing courage, the children find they have the power triumph over evil and return Narnia to its rightful leader. Children and adults alike will be enthralled by this classic C.S. Lewis story.

The Marvelous Wonderettes
Jan 25 @ 7:30 pm
Greenwood Community Theatre

This smash off-Broadway hit takes you to the 1958 Springfield High School prom where we meet Betty Jean, Cindy Lou, Missy, and Suzy, four girls with hopes and dreams as big as their crinoline skirts! As we learn about their lives and loves, the girls serenade us with classic ‘50s hits including “Lollipop,” “Dream Lover,” “Stupid Cupid,” and “Lipstick on Your Collar.” In act two, the Wonderettes reunite to take the stage and perform at their ten-year reunion. We learn about the highs and lows the girls have experienced in the past decade and are charmed to find that no matter what life throws their way, they will conquer it together.

The Heath
Jan 25 @ 8:00 pm – 9:30 pm
The Warehouse Theatre
Lauren Gunderson was named the most produced playwright in the nation this year by
American Theatre Magazine. It’s no wonder given how engaging her characters are and how her stories bril-
liantly explore vital human stories. In the latest production from The Warehouse Theatre she turns the focus
to herself and her extended family. Given that her grandfather, a prominent presence in the play, lived and
worked locally, cities and other landmarks of the Upstate region play key elements in the show.

THE HEATH features hallmarks of Gunderson’s work with a powerful female character driving the action and a
wide array of elements from science to Shakespeare to banjo aiding the story as it springs to life. THE HEATH
explores the relationship between a grandfather and granddaughter who are different in every possible way
and uses that framework to plumb the depths of how we reconcile dissimilarities in those we love.

The charming, heartwarming play will feature one of Greenville’s most popular performers, Miranda Barnett,
who originated the leading role of the narrator in the world premiere at Merrimack Repertory Theatre earlier
this year. Barnett taught herself banjo in order to embody Gunderson’s protagonist on stage.
The play runs January 10 -26 and is 90 minutes in length. 
Blue Star Theatre discounts for veterans and active military apply throughout the run. I Pay What I Can Sun-
day is January 12th at 3:00pm with tickets being sold on a first come, first serve basis starting at 2:15pm.

My Fair Lady
Jan 28 @ 7:30 pm
Peace Center

From Lincoln Center Theater that brought you The King & I and South Pacific, comes “a sumptuous new production of the most perfect musical of all time” (Entertainment Weekly), Lerner & Loewe’s My Fair Lady. Director Bartlett Sher’s glowing production is “thrilling, glorious and better than it ever was” (The New York Times). “Every so often a revival comes along that reminds you how indispensable great theater can be” (NY1).

Boasting such classic songs as “I Could Have Danced All Night,” “The Rain in Spain,” “Wouldn’t It Be Loverly,” and “On the Street Where You Live,” My Fair Lady tells the story of Eliza Doolittle, a young Cockney flower seller, and Henry Higgins, a linguistics professor who is determined to transform her into his idea of a “proper lady.” But who is really being transformed?
