**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.

Danielle Miraglia & Emily Scott Robinson Presented by Six String

Danielle Miraglia comes armed with a strong steady thumb on an old Gibson, an infectious stomp-box rhythm and harmonica with tunes ranging from heart-felt to socially conscious that will move both your heart and hips. Her latest “All My Heroes Are Ghosts,” released with her band Danielle M and The Glory Junkies touches on a lot of what might be on your mind these days – the loss of so many musical heroes on the title track, the chaos of “fake news” on “Monster,” our collective anxieties on “All On Fire,” and more.. The music itself blends influences of some of Miraglia’s own musical heroes – The Rolling Stones, Prince, Janis Joplin along with Danielle’s lyrical ability to explore human nature at its best and worst. Danielle M and The Glory Junkies are nominated for a 2018 Boston Music Award for “Blues Artist of the Year” and Danielle was nominated for a 2015 Boston Music Award for Singer-Songwriter of the Year.

AmericanaFest 2018 official showcase artist Emily Scott Robinson is an up and coming folk singer/songwriter who has been making big waves in the Americana scene. With her debut album set to release in February of 2019, she has already won the Wildflower Festival Songwriting Competition, the Kerrville New Folk Songwriting Competition and came in 2nd place at Rocky Mountain Folks Fest.

Stageworks Theatre presents “Harold and Maude” by Colin Higgins

  • 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 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.

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

Six String Presents Jonathan Byrd & The Pickup Cowboys

Jonathan Byrd is a preacher’s son, a Gulf War veteran, and an award-winning songwriter from Chapel Hill, North Carolina, known for literary, outsider songs that have become Americana favorites. The Chicago Tribune called Byrd “one of the top 50 songwriters of the past 50 years.”

Multi-instrumentalist Johnny Waken cut his teeth on electric guitar in Pittsburgh with rock legend Norm Nardini, opening for The Blues Brothers Band on their Red, Hot & Blue tour in 1992. After taking a few years away from music, Johnny is back at it with the Pickup Cowboys.

Austin McCall is a drummer of all trades, having played with such diverse acts as Senegalese griot Diali Cissokho, new Indie duo Violet Bell, and international theater troupe Paper Hand Puppet Intervention. Austin uses all his modes to support Jonathan Byrd’s diverse catalog of songs and Johnny Waken’s instrumental antics.


Jonathan Byrd and The Pickup Cowboys are musical gunslingers, vaudevillian hucksters, and old-fashioned tent revivalists. With their new album Pickup Cowboy (2018), they have brought a bold new set of working-class anthems to Americana fans, and a spirit-raising show to back it up. Visit SixStringPresents.com.

Songs You Love to Sing: Music from the Great American Songbook

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

The Great American Songbook is not, in fact, an actual book or physical collection that authoritatively defines this music. Rather than a binding, the songs are held together by the ethos of an era that many refer to as “The Golden Age of Song,” in which great melodies and sophisticated yet subtle harmonies were combined with witty lyrics and clever rhymes. Many of the writers of these songs are still household names today: George Gershwin, Irving Berlin, Cole Porter, Rodgers and Hammerstein, Hoagy Carmichael, the list goes on.

The quality and craftsmanship of the songs is demonstrated not only by their popularity, but also because they maintain their allure with performers of all types and styles. Above all, these works are the songs we love to sing!

Foster Sleepovers & Foster Information Fair

Are there opportunities to foster kitties that do not require a long-term commitment? What if I feel anxious about caring for tiny kittens - am I still a good candidate to help with SAFE Haven's foster program? The answer is a big YES to both questions!

At our Foster Sleepover discussion, our shelter staff will discuss how many cats - not just kittens - need foster families to take a break from shelter life, to learn to be more social, and to get some important enrichment that increases their chance for adoption.

After attending this seminar, you will be more aware of the foster process and what types of cats and kittens will be ideal for you to care for in your home. SAFE Haven for Cats has an amazing community of fosters who will be delighted for you to join them on an immensely gratifying journey to help homeless cats and kittens find their forever homes!

Tickets are just $5! To purchase visit: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/foster-sleepovers-foster-information-fair-tickets-48161507365
