Grease Sing-A-Long

  • Koka Booth Amphitheatre

 Cary’s Booth Amphitheatre will host Sing-a-long-a Grease, when the unique, interactive show rolls into town, marking the 45th anniversary of the original stage version of Grease.

You’d better shape up to sing along to the great movie musical, complete with on-screen lyrics and the chance to become a T-Bird or Pink Lady for the night and enter the world famous costume competition.

“It’s the one that you want”, says producer Ben Freedman, who previously brought us Sing-a-long-a Sound of Music. “Sing-a-long-a Grease is the show that audiences have been asking for since we first presented a singalong show back in 1999.”

Sing-a-long-a Greasers will be decked out in their own versions of fifties high school garb worn at Rydell High, including poodle skirts and saddle shoes, black leather biker and powder-pink bomber jackets, chiffon scarves and skinny ties.  Costumes are most definitely encouraged, but singing is mandatory!

Every performance starts with a Sing-a-long-a host who warms up the audience, trains them how to “hand-jive”, deploy the contents of their free magic moments fun packs and heckle in all the right places as well as judge the costume competition. “The rules are, there are no rules.”

Suitability for children: Grease is suitable for all. Children are very welcome, although evening performances can sometimes get a little lively and so may be more suitable for older children (plus the late finishing time may mean that younger ones get tired).

Running time: 2 hours 20 minutes including pre-show

Obit

  • The Cary Theater

It’s a shame no one wants to talk to them at parties, because obituary writers are a surprisingly funny bunch. Ten hours before newspapers hit neighborhood doorsteps—and these days, ten minutes before news hits the web—an obit writer is racing against deadline to sum up a long and newsworthy life in under 1000 words. The details of these lives are then deposited into the cultural memory amid the daily beat of war, politics, and football scores.

Obit is the first documentary to explore the world of these writers and their subjects, focusing on the legendary team at The New York Times,who approach their daily work with journalistic rigor and narrative flair. Going beyond the byline and into the minds of those chronicling life after death on the freshly inked front lines of history, the film invites some of the most essential questions we ask ourselves about life, memory, and the inevitable passage of time. What do we choose to remember? What never dies? (allmovie.com)

Will call tickets may be picked up at The Cary Box Office beginning one hour prior to the movie.

Cliff Eberhardt & Louise Mosrie Featuring Dean Driver

  • The Cary Theater

Cliff Eberhardt
cliffeberhardt.net
Cliff Eberhardt knew by age seven that he was going to be a singer and songwriter. Growing up in Berwyn, Pennsylvania, he and his brothers sang together and their parents played instruments. His dad introduced him to the guitar and he quickly taught himself to play. Fortunate enough to live close to the Main Point (one of the best folk clubs on the East Coast), he cut his teeth listening to the likes of James Taylor, Joni Mitchell, Bruce Springsteen, Howlin’ Wolf, Muddy Waters, Bonnie Raitt, and Mississippi John Hurt — receiving an early and impressive tutorial in acoustic music. At the same time, he was also listening to great pop songwriters like Cole Porter, the Gershwins, and Rodgers and Hart, which explain his penchant for great melodies and clever lyrical twists.

At fifteen, Cliff and his brother Geoff began touring as an acoustic duo, playing the Eastern club circuit until Cliff turned twenty-one and moved to Carbondale, Illinois. There he found space to develop his own voice within a vibrant and supportive music scene that included Shawn Colvin. After a couple of years there and a short stay in Colorado, Cliff moved to New York in 1978. Because the clubs were great (the Bitter End, the Speakeasy, Kenny’s Castaway, Folk City) and the company amazing (John Gorka, Suzanne Vega, Lucy Kaplansky, Julie Gold, Steve Forbert, Christine Lavin, and Shawn Colvin), New York was an ideal musician’s boot camp. Though he put in long hours as a taxi driver, Cliff worked steadily on his music throughout the 80’s, doing solo gigs and studio work, and playing guitar on the road with Richie Havens, Melanie and others. Singing advertising jingles for products like Coke, Miller Beer and Chevrolet (“The Heartbeat of America” campaign) allowed him to devote more time to his songwriting.

Louise Mosrie
louisemosrie.com
Louise grew up in the small town just outside of Nashville, TN on a farm with British parents and several siblings – riding horses, writing poetry and singing with the radio. After college in Knoxville, she “borrowed” her brother’s Sears guitar, bought a simple chord book and started writing songs. The early material was mostly acoustic pop as she tried to channel her English roots while listening to Everything But the Girl and The Sundays.
Fast forward a few years, a move back to Nashville and some deep soul searching, Louise began writing songs about the South – what she knew and where she grew up. In 2008, she began working on a new album eventually to be called “Home” because she’d come full circle in her “voice” as a writer. The album was a mix of bluegrass, country and folk and as she weaved in lush stories and songs about southern life, she was even introduced once as “…William Faulkner with a guitar”. With those songs, she entered some song contests connected to festivals and ended up winning top awards at Kerrville Folk Festival, Wildflower! Festival, Telluride Bluegrass Festival and Falcon Ridge Folk Festival. “Home” debuted at #1 on the Folk DJ charts in January 2010 and went on to be one of the most played albums that year for that chart.

The Women (2008)

  • The Cary Theater

Veteran producer/director Diane English (The Lathe of Heaven, Murphy Brown) helms this contemporized remake of George Cukor’s beloved proto-feminist comedy drama The Women (1939), an adaptation of Clare Boothe Luce’s play. The English version follows the gossip, bitchy wisecracking, and overall disillusionment that erupt among a group of socialite friends when their dearest and most envied learns of her husband’s marital infidelity at the hands of a backstabbing shopgirl. The all-female cast is fronted by Meg Ryan, Annette Bening, Eva Mendes, Debra Messing, Jada Pinkett Smith, and Candice Bergen, with supporting roles inhabited by Bette Midler, Cloris Leachman, and Carrie Fisher. (allmovie.com: Nathan Southern) Please note movie discounts or passes are not allowed for this film.

The Opposite Sex

  • The Cary Theater

The Opposite Sex is an opulent musical remake of Clare Booth Luce’s The Women (1939). June Allyson stars in the old Norma Shearer role, playing the virtuous wife who loses her husband to scheming Joan Collins (as the Joan Crawford character). At first agreeing to a divorce, June decides to win hubby back by utilizing the same crafty feminine wiles that Joan had employed to lead him astray. Doloress Gray plays the counterpart to Rosalind Russell’s vitriolic gossip. The original The Women boasted an all-female cast: the remake includes several male characters, played by the likes of MGM contractees Leslie Nielsen and Jeff Richards. Dick Shawn, Jim Backus and Harry James are also on hand, billed as “special guest stars.” The satirical bite of The Women has been softened in The Opposite Sex, but musical fans should have a good time. Sammy Cahn, Nicholas Brodszky, Ralph Freed and George Stoll were among the songwriters; Collins, Allyson and Jeff Richards perform musical numbers in the film. (allmovie.com: Hal Erickson) Please note movie discounts or passes are not allowed for this film.

Rotary District 7710 6th Annual GlobalRun4Water

  • 201 Soccer Park Drive Cary, NC, 27511 United States

Presented by Rotary District 7710
Produced by Fit & Able Productions, Inc.

District 7710 Mission: Our mission is to help needy people in the world have clean drinking water, because safe water helps to liberate people so they can live healthier, fuller, and more productive lives. At the same time we are going to raise awareness among Rotarians of the worldwide water crisis and improve Rotary's public image as a major player in the water and sanitation cause.

How Past Proceeds were Used:

Over the 5 years of this race, we have raised over $61,000. Using these proceeds in combination with matching funds from District 7710 and The Rotary Foundation, we have been able to provide clean water, hygiene training, and in some cases modern sanitation facilities to villages and schools in Bolivia, the Dominican Republic, Guatemala, Haiti, Honduras, India, Lebanon, Peru, Tanzania, and Uganda.

Clean water, hygiene training, and adequate sanitation facilities are much needed components for disease prevention, good health, and quality of life that the residents of these communities lacked due to their extreme poverty.

New Project - Proceeds from the 6th Annual District 7710 GlobalRun4Water will be used to help fund projects in Peru and other areas currently being evaluated.

An Evening with Alison Krauss & David Gray

  • Koka Booth Amphitheatre

Alison inhabits–and liberates–the very essence that makes each of the songs eternal. While they span different eras and musical genres, there is a unifying sensibility. Some of the songs are familiar–like “Gentle On My Mind,” a signature song of Glen Campbell’s, and “You Don’t Know Me” which was a hit for Eddy Arnold and Ray Charles. Others were lesser known, like Willie Nelson’s “I Never Cared For You” and “All Alone Am I,” originally recorded by Brenda Lee.

Twenty one years since his first studio album, David Gray’s tenth and latest, Mutineers, finds the singer-songwriter steering into unfamiliar territory while cultivating a pugnacious but respectful relationship with his own history. “I think if you’re going forward with an open heart, good things will happen,” says David. “You have to sort of tear up the past and let it go.”
David’s past includes the phenomenal success of White Ladder (seven million copies sold), one of three UK number one albums, with records that became ubiquitous and others that needed to be sought out to be heard. It’s a richness of terrain and experience over a duration that belies the traditions and expectations of popular music as surely as the songs themselves.

Despite such variance in both the content and reception of his prior output, the only certainty David had at the commencement of his new recording was the need to surprise himself, not just in terms of how he worked, but the ideas that drove him and the people he worked with.

Triangle's First and Only Free Outdoor Dance Festiva

  • E. Carroll Joyner Park

An outdoor dance festival debuting on Sept. 30, 2017, in Wake Forest is the first of its kind in the greater Triangle area. The Wake Forest Dance Festival is a free, family-friendly, daylong event from 10 a.m. - 7 p.m. featuring professional dancers at E. Carroll Joyner Park, 701 Harris Road, Wake Forest.

The inaugural event is presented by Wake Forest Arts in partnership with the Town of Wake Forest and will bring a day of dance to the Triangle in an outdoor setting. The event will feature national and regional professional dancers, as well as local rising advanced dance performers.

The festival will begin with an educational technical rehearsal in the morning and conclude with a staged performance lasting through the early evening. During the day, mini dance performances showcasing various dance styles will take place in select areas of Joyner Park culminating with a staged performance.

10 a.m. – noon: Technical Rehearsal – Attendees who want a behind the scenes look can attend the Technical Rehearsal, which is a run-through of the Festival Concert that will take place later in the day. Some of the performers and the stage manager will be available to answer questions.

1 p.m. – 4 p.m.: Tour in Motion – A guided tour will begin at the top of every hour and give attendees the opportunity to experience dance in intimate outdoor settings throughout Joyner Park.

5:00 p.m. – 6:30 p.m.: Festival Concert – The main concert of the festival will feature professional dancers and rising advanced dancers from local dance institutions.

The event will pay tribute to long-time Wake Forest dance instructor Elizabeth “Betty” Hunt Holding and her dance legacy. Having studied ballet under famed Russian choreographer George Balanchine and performed with the Radio City Music Hall Rockettes, Holding arrived in Wake Forest in the 1940s. She opened Wake Forest’s most historic dance studio, the Holding School of Dance, in her home where she taught dance to students for more than 30 years until her death in 2007.

Cary Fire House Tour Marathon

  • 408 Mills Park Drive Cary, NC, 27519 United States

"Going the Extra Mile" 

We are paying tribute to our friend and fellow firefighter Jon Schondelmayer who spent 20 years working his way through almost every station before passing in December of 2013 in a line of duty-related death.  In it's first year this grassroots event was open to only 75 runners from the Fire Department community but last year it was open to the public with over 250!

Proceeds from this year's race will also go to help set up a Project Lifesaver Program, supporting Triangle Miracle League Baseball, and hosting camp experiences for autistic children.

The event has FIVE race options:

Full Marathon (26.2 miles + Extra Mile): starts at Fire House 6 (Hwy Ten Ten and Kildare Farm Rd) and finishes at Fire House 8 (Mills Park Rd. and Green Level Church Rd.). Race individually or as a relay team (2-7 runners).

Half-Marathon (13.1 miles + Extra Mile): starts near Fire House 1 (N. Harrison and Cary Pkwy) and finishes at Fire House 8. Race individually or as a relay team (2-3 runners).

10K (10K & no extra mile): starts at Fire House 5 (on High House Rd.) and finishes at Fire House 8. 

Both the full and half-marathon runners will get to join the Cary Fire Department in their tradition of "going the extra mile."

Relay team members don't need to sign up together all at once. They can sign up individually so long as they select the team name the first person who signed up created (first person pays the registration fee too!). We believe that he who pays gets to pick the team name!

The course winds through greenways and streets alike. The course not only visits almost every Cary fire station you'll also get to actually run through several of the fire station truck bays. All fire stations will act as both rest and accountability stops.

Strides for Speech

  • Edge Soccer Programs

Sanctioned by USA Track & Field

Imagine if the last thing you said tonight was the last thing you said..... period.  Aphasia is a devastating consequence to stroke, brain injury, and other progressive diseases that rob individuals of their ability to express their thoughts and ideas.  Even with intact cognition, memory, and intellect, individuals suffering from aphasia often feel isolated not being able to return to the vocational or recreational pursuits they had prior to their diagnosis. 

The Triangle Aphasia Project, Unlimited is a nonprofit organization that provides programming to individuals with aphasia, their families, and the community.  With a Life Participation approach, we strive to reduce communication barriers and improve social engagement and speech/language potential.  TAP provides group programs, trainings, education and opportunities throughout the Triangle and beyond.

TAP's goal for Strides for Speech is not just to help support its community programming but also provide a fun, safe activity for those with aphasia and their families. Whether you walk, run, stroll, or roll this 5K and 1Ž2 mile is a perfect opportunities for everyone to come together to support TAP and learn more about how they can help those we serve. 

We hope you'll join us on October 14th and please invite your friends and family to walk or run with you!

Jack Williams & Still on the Hill

  • The Cary Theater

JackWilliams is considered a “musician’s musician”, an uncommonly unique guitarist, a writer of vivid songs with a strong sense of place and a storyteller in an old Southern tradition who further illustrates each tale with his guitar. Rich Warren of WFMT Chicago’s The Midnight Special said, “His artistry is nothing short of amazing”. Vic Heyman, in SING OUT!, wrote, “He is one of the strongest guitar players in contemporary folk.”

Still on the Hill: These musicians have grafted the wild climbing vines of bluegrass, folk, classical and mountain music onto the hardiest of Ozark rootstock. The result is yet-to-be-named hybrid music that compels people to stop and listen, to pause in their hectic lives and pay attention to something they’ve never heard before. It’s magic and there’s simply not enough magic in the world today.

The Seven Samurai

  • The Cary Theater

Akira Kurosawa’s epic tale concerns honor and duty during a time when the old traditional order is breaking down. The film opens with master samurai Kambei (Takashi Shimura) posing as a monk to save a kidnapped farmer’s child. Impressed by his selflessness and bravery, a group of farmers begs him to defend their terrorized village from bandits. Kambei agrees, although there is no material gain or honor to be had in the endeavor. Soon he attracts a pair of followers: a young samurai named Katsushiro (Isao Kimura), who quickly becomes Kambei’s disciple, and boisterous Kikuchiyo (Toshiro Mifune), who poses as a samurai but is later revealed to be the son of a farmer. Kambei assembles four other samurais, including Kyuzo (Seiji Miyaguchi), a master swordsman, to round out the group. Together they consolidate the village’s defenses and shape the villagers into a militia, while the bandits loom menacingly nearby. Soon raids and counter-raids build to a final bloody heart-wrenching battle. (allmovie.com: Jonathan Crow)

Military Appreciation Train Ride

  • New Hope Valley Railway

 New Hope Valley Railway (NHVR), will host its Military Appreciation ride day on Sunday, July 9, honoring military personnel and their families. Just a few days after Independence Day, the railroad will honor those who serve our country with up to four free tickets offered to active duty, reserve, National Guard, veterans and retired military personnel for its diesel train excursions.

Much of the historic railroad equipment at NHVR was on a U.S. military base before finding its home at the rail yard. Most recently, the organization acquired two diesel engines aptly named “The Twins”. Diesel Engines 1640 and 1681 are Ex-U.S. Army 80-ton locomotives that were used by a transportation reserve unit for its yearly training at one of the world’s largest military terminals – the Military Ocean Terminal Sunny Point in Southport, N.C. The Twins will be used during ride days and for NHVR’s Operate-a-Loco program.

All four of NHVR’s covered passenger cars were built from flat rail cars that were used to haul tanks and other heavy equipment based at Camp Lejeune in Jacksonville, N.C. The museum exhibit car and gift shop were originally kitchen cars for troop trains during World War II.

Service members and veterans can get free tickets for themselves and up to three family members by presenting military identification at the ticket booth located near the parking lot before crossing the pedestrian bridge to the rail yard.

Free tickets are only available in person at the ticket booth and cannot be reserved online. Additional tickets can be purchased for the diesel rides, which have sold out in previous years.

NHVR’s food vendor Chef’s House will serve slow roasted choice beef, piled on an artisan roll with a tangy horseradish cream and a choice of two sides (herb-roasted red fingerling potatoes, baked beans, country potatoes, sweet kernel corn); hot dog combos with choice cookies and chips; or the NHVR Engineers Breakfast made up of cheesy scrambled eggs, Applewood bacon, country sausage and hearty conductor’s choice potatoes.

Six flavors of hand-dipped premium ice cream and toppings will also be available for $2 per scoop.

Train tickets cost $7-10. The public can purchase tickets in advance at www.TriangleTrain.com/Buy-Tickets but military personnel must get tickets in person at the ticket booth on the day of the ride with proper military identification. Food is not included in the train ticket price.

Upcoming summer events at the rail yard include Diesel & Ice Cream on July 29; Slow Down Sunday on August 13; and Brew ‘n’ Choo Pizza Party on August 26. The full 2017 ride schedule is at www.TriangleTrain.com/Schedule

Fireworks (Hana-B!)

  • The Cary Theater

Actor and auteur, Takeshi Kitano (who in Japan also uses the stage name “Beat” Takeshi, primarily for his work as a television comedian) wrote, directed, edited, and starred in this unusual crime drama. Nishi is a policeman whose emotions seem to run only on two extreme paths—either quiet contentment or brutal rage. Nishi’s life is falling apart around him; his daughter was murdered, his wife, Miyuki, is dying of leukemia, his partner, Horibe, was ambushed by thugs after Nishi left him to visit his wife in the hospital and will now spend the rest of his life in a wheelchair, and another cop was killed coming to Horibe’s rescue. Nishi desperately wants to quit his job so he can spend more time with his dying wife, so he borrows a large sum of money from the yakuza (the Japanese mafia) and takes up a career as a painter while he cares for Miyuki. Not wanting to stay in debt to the gangsters, Nishi engineers a daring bank robbery (using his police uniform and an old auto disguised to look like a squad car) and uses the loot to pay off the yakuza and take his wife on a final vacation. However, the loan sharks are not eager to have Nishi off the hook, and they begin complaining that he still owes them interest on their loan. (allmovie.com: Mark Deming)

The Burmese Harp

  • The Cary Theater

Set against the final days of World War II, The Burmese Harp portrays the experiences of a group of exhausted, war-scarred Japanese soldiers as they prepare to return to Japan. The film focuses on Shoji Yasui, a soldier known to his comrades for his harp playing, who fails to convince a resistant company to surrender and is presumed dead when a battle destroys their hillside encampment. To rejoin his fellow soldiers, Shoji steals the robes of a Buddhist monk and begins to make his way across the countryside. But along the way, he becomes fixated on the hundreds of abandoned, unburied war casualties and begins to assume the duties of his costume and tend to the bodies. Meanwhile, Shoji’s friends mount a search for him, eventually noticing the monk to whom he bears an uncanny resemblance. Director Kon Ichikawa’s film was adapted by frequent collaborator (and wife) Nato Wada from a book by Michio Takeyama designed to introduce children to the fundamental principles of Buddhism.
