Show Information


Music, Lyrics and Book by Lionel Bart
Licensed by Arrangement with Oliver Productions, Ltd. and Oliver Promotions, Ltd.

This beloved musical based on Charles Dickens’ Oliver Twist has won numerous awards including the Tony for Best Musical and Academy Award for Best Picture. Set in the 19th century, Dickens makes important social statements about the conditions of poverty in London, yet does it with comedy, empathy and the every present sense of hope. Songs like “Consider Yourself” and “As Long As He Needs Me” move the exciting plot through the streets of Dickens’ city, entrancing the audience and showing them the historical truths of his time. Family friendly and a must-see for children and adults.

Lend Me a Tenor

“Lend Me a Tenor (Ludwig)” is presented by special arrangement with
Samuel French, Inc.

This comedy won the Tony for Best Play and Best Revival of a Play. The New York Times says it is “one of two great farces by a living writer.” The London Times says, “A remarkable piece of theatre... a masterpiece... Author Ken Ludwig has verve, a sound grasp of plot mechanics and a rare ability to couple high art with low comedy.” Tito Morelli, famous opera star, is supposed to perform Otello, but Tito has been given tranquilizers so the manager has to find someone else to play his role. Once Tito awakens, we have two “Otellos,” two women in lingerie who think they are Tito’s lover and the manager in one mishap after another. Suitable for children.

The Denim King: The Story of Moses Cone

Book by Janet Barton Speer
Lyrics and Music by John Thomas Oaks
Based in part on the book A Mansion in the Mountains by Phillip T. Noblitt

Several years ago the Blue Ridge Parkway Foundation commissioned Janet Speer and John Thomas Oaks to write a musical about the Cone Dynasty and Flat Top Manor, the Cone mansion that resides along the Parkway in Blowing Rock, NC. The Denim King was produced at the Blowing Rock Stage Company and became their best attended production. Lees-McRae is proud to partner with the Blue Ridge Parkway Foundation and Well-Spring Retirement Community to produce this fascinating show, the story of how Moses and his brother Ceasar developed textiles -- particularly denim. Add to that the Cone sisters who accrued one of the largest contemporary art collections in the country and you have a tale worth telling. It takes a musical to show its grandness! Suitable for children.
