Admission for this fifty-ninth edition of 3EC is free, and it will be an evening of music that promises to warm whatever chilled cockles you may have.

The Contemporary Youth Arts Company presents “Lincoln,” a classic opera by Dan Kehde and Mark Scarpelli, beginning Thursday and running on weekends through February 8. Check out this preview clip from a rehearsal…

1779144_564625964756_1135612629_nI saw a previous production of “Lincoln” a few years ago, and it’s a great piece. In fact, we devoted episode 59 of Radio Free Charleston to the 2009 production, and we will bring that episode of the show back this Saturday in the RFC Flashback, so you can get more of an idea of how great this show is.

Performances are 8 PM on Thursday, Friday and Saturday this week and next, with a 2 PM matinee this Sunday. Tickets are available at the door for $8 students and Seniors (65 +) and $15 adults.For more information call the theater at 304-342-6522.

Free Entertainment in the valley includes Rick Perdue at EZ Street in St. Albans at 9 PM and Mojo’s Comedy Night Open Mic at Mojo’s Sportsbar behind The Mound in South Charleston, also at 9 PM.
