Stageworks Theatre presents “The Girls of the Garden Club” by John Patrick

  • 300 West Ballentine Street Holly Springs, NC, 27540 United States (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

**Can’t make to a performance that weekend? Stageworks Theatre will continue a second week of performances at the Fuquay Arts Center on January 24 - 26, 2019!**

For Rhoda Greenleaf gardening is all and the presidency of the local garden club her highest goal. But standing in her way is the incumbent, Lillybelle, who peppers her speech with French phrases and is a general pain in the neck. How to oust Lillybelle and install herself as president becomes Rhoda’s obsession—with husband, children and home all pushed aside as she pursues her own quest. Despite help from other club members Rhoda is stalled, until her daughter’s boyfriend comes up with a novel idea—he slips a voice box into Rhoda’s prize plant, turning it into the world’s only talking flower. As it has been agreed to have the presidency of the garden club go to whomever wins a first prize in the Flower Show, Rhoda appears to be a shoo-in. But then, as fate would have it, complications arise with the indomitable “Girls of the Garden Club.”

Tickets: $14 Adults; $12 Seniors and Students; $10 Season Subscription and Groups (10+)

Bach’s Awakening: Discover Cantata 140

  • Saint Francis United Methodist Church (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Cantata 140 is a chorale cantata composed by J.S. Bach in 1731, using a very famous chorale, “Wachet auf” (Sleepers, Awake!) which appears in many Christian hymnals. The original hymn was written in 1599 by German pastor Philipp Nicolai, after surviving a deadly plague in his town.

The Discovery Series aims to help general audience members move along the spectrum of understanding so that they may more fully appreciate, understand, and enjoy music of all sorts. For concerts on the Discovery Series, the first half will be a discussion of the work itself, including background and description of structural elements that aid the listener in understanding the composer’s intent and meaning. The discussion will be aided by live musical examples played by the performers, to illustrate the salient points.

The second half will then be a performance of the music. Through this experience, the average audience member will have an opportunity to develop their understanding of great works of art, and feel encouraged to attend more concerts.

Sole Mates Valentine 5K & 10K

  • 201 Soccer Park Drive Cary, NC, 27511 United States (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

The Sole Mates Run is a celebration of health and fitness and is coming back for another year! There's no better way to celebrate than with friends and family. So grab your running buddy and get to the starting line!

What's new about this race? THREE THINGS! First, participants can choose to run the race individually (as usual) or they can team up with a partner. Instead of placing by their individual race times, partners will instead place by their combined times. Run together and win together! We might call it "Sole Mates" but it doesn't matter if you pair up with your spouse, kids, significant other, best buddy, or neighbor.

The second change is the course. You've all probably run the WakeMed course at some point. We know that "the Hill" is a tough climb. That's why we're running the course backwards! That means you run down the hill more times than you have to run up it.

Also, third, just like last year we will have hot baked potatoes with all the toppings and homemade brownies for post-race refreshment! The Doubles costume contest will also be judged after the race.
Invite your friends and family to run together!

If you're looking for a great Valentines Day gift for a friend or loved one, sign up for the Sole Mates Run!


Schedule: Saturday February 9th

9:30 - 11:00 AM - Packet Pick-up & Check In
10:45 AM - Kids Sprint Start
11:00 AM - 5K & 10K Start

  • Google Calendar ICS

**Can’t make to a performance that weekend? Stageworks Theatre will continue a second week of performances at the Fuquay Arts Center on April 4 – 6, 2019!**

Seemingly comfortably ensconced in his charming Connecticut home, Sidney Bruhl, a successful writer of Broadway thrillers, is struggling to overcome a dry spell which has resulted in a string of failures and a shortage of funds. A possible break in his fortunes occurs when he receives a script from a student in the seminar he has been conducting at a nearby college—a thriller which Sidney recognizes immediately as a potential Broadway hit. Sidney’s plan, which he devises with his wife’s help, is to offer collaboration to the student, an idea which the younger man quickly accepts. One of the great popular successes of recent Broadway history, this ingeniously constructed play offers a rare and skillful blending of two priceless theatrical ingredients: gasp-inducing thrills and spontaneous laughter.

Tickets: $14 Adults; $12 Seniors and Students; $10 Season Subscription and Groups (10+)

**Can’t make to a performance that weekend? Stageworks Theatre will continue a second week of performances at the Fuquay Arts Center on June 13 – 15, 2019!**

This is a stage adaptation of the movie about the suicidal 19 year old boy who finally learns how to truly live when he meets that delightfully wacky octogenarian, Maude. Harold is the proverbial poor little rich kid. His alienation has caused him to attempt suicide several times, though these incidents are more cries for attention than actual attempts. His peculiar attachment to Maude, whom he meets at a funeral (a mutual passion) is what saves him and what captivates us. This stage version, a hit in France directed by the internationally renowned Jean Louis Barrault, will certainly delight both aficionados of the film and new comers to the story.

Elf, with "Snowball" Fight

Will Ferrell stars as Buddy, a regular-sized man who was raised as an elf by Santa Claus (Edward Asner). When the news is finally broken to Buddy that he’s not a real elf, he decides to head back to his place of birth, New York City, in search of his biological family.

Bring pairs of new socks to this screening. During the snowball fight scene, ball up your socks and fling them at the target of your choice. Please do not throw directly at the movie screen or other folks’ heads. After the film, we’ll collect all the socks and donate them to Dorcas Ministries.

Last year, your generosity helped donate over 700 pairs of socks at our single screening of Elf. Let’s shatter that number with kindness to help Dorcas Ministries serve area needy families.
