The Contemporary Youth Arts Company production of Dan Kehde and Mark Scarpelli’s “MARY,” which has become a Christmas tradition here in Charleston, opens tonight at The WVSU Capitol Center Theater. The show runs November 26 and 27 at 8 PM, November 28 at 2 PM, and December 2,3 and 4 at 8 PM. If you haven’t seen the show, below you’ll find two preview videos recorded during a dress rehearsal earlier this week.
This year’s cast includes CYAC veterans Maddy Gourevitch as Gabriel, Donnie Smith as Joseph, Craig Auge as Zechariaih, Katrina Scarpelli Mulyono as Elizabeth, Jonathan Tucker as Herod, and talented newcomber Brynna Horswell as Mary.
Other returning veterans include April Richardson Morgan, Nik Tidquist, and Austin Thomas.
This is a wonderful, original show that tells the story of the brith of Christ in a fun way, and it’s appropriate for the whole family. Tickets are $10 ($6 for students).
After the jump, we have a quick photo essay previewing two of today’s Black Friday ArtWalk galleries.
Clayton Spangler’s Charleston collection is on display at Art Emporium, and it’s a winner, as you can see from the pictures below. Spangler’s view of the Capitol City is sleek and stylish, with many of his digially-manipulated phots printed directly on metal.
The Purple Moon
