February 21 – 23rd, 28 – March 2nd, & 7 – 9th  

February and Saturday shows at 8pm
Sunday Matinee at 2pm
Tickets:  Adults $18.00

This 2811comedy is a play within a play about – what else – a theatre company. It takes place – where else – Buffalo, NY.  The rep theatre company with its own “cast of characters” is quite confused about which play they are doing when Frank Capra is coming to see the show to help him cast his next movie star in an upcoming film.  Well, everything does not quite go as planned.

The Holly Theater is located at
69 West Main Street
just off the historic public square in downtown Dahlonega.

Valentine’s With Sinatra & Martin at the Holly 2/14

29 Jan

RUSSO AND NOE PRESENT VALENTINE’S WITH SINATRA & MARTIN 2/14/2013 8-10pm

Russo and Noe are professional entertainers, not an impersonation act. Although comparisons are often made to the Rat Pack days of Las Vegas, they are based out of Atlanta, Ga. but perform all across the Southeast.
Performing in tuxedos with the trademark Manhattan glass in hand they really do take an audience back to those days. Just close your eyes and you could be at the Sands Hotel in 1962. They are easy and relaxed on stage, slightly ribald with their humor, and possess excellent voices remarkably suited to the swinging, big band era.

NEIL SIMON’S ‘RUMORS’ – The Play, at the Holly Theater

6 Jan

NEIL SIMON’S ‘RUMORS’ – The Play, 1/13-15,20-22,27-29. Fridays & Saturdays at 8 pm, Sundays at 2pm.

Imagine, that there is a party where several couples have gathered at a posh suburban home celebrating their hosts’ 10th anniversary and several things are wrong, very wrong, including the hostess is missing and the host (the deputy mayor of New York) has been shot in the earlobe.

That’s where this classic farce starts and where it leads is a hysterical story of people trying to conceal details from local police and the media as stories crisscross and rumors build.

Playwright Neil Simon is most well-known for plays such as Odd Couple, Biloxi Blues, The Out of Towners, Good-bye Girl and The Last of the Red Hot Lovers and has been a Kennedy Center Honoree, has won four Tony Awards, six writer’s Guild of America Awards, and a Pulitzer Prize.

Opening on January 13th, Rumors will run three weeks with an exciting cast of players, many of which you have not seen on the Holly’s stage before. Directed by Daniel Martin, the play pulls from many of our local residents including Andy Ward, Melanie Pruitt, Josh Cagle, Charity Cagle, Stephanie Neuman, Richard Pace, Gordon Solumbk and coming to our stage for the first time, John Minnich.

Tickets: $15.00, Contact the Holly Theater at 706-864-3759 for more info or to order tickets.

The plays are notable in that two men play the entire cast of over twenty eccentric characters of both genders and various ages. The first play, Greater Tuna, debuted in 1981 in Austin; A Tuna Christmas debuted in 1989.

Hemlockfest 11/4-6 Musical Line Up Announced

12 Aug

For the seventh annual HemlockFest, the Lumpkin Coalition has again assembled an array of the area’s most awesome talents. Headliners for this year’s event—which returns to Starbridge Sanctuary near Dahlonega this November 4th, 5th and 6th—include Colonel Bruce Hampton and the Pharaoh Gummitt, Saint Francis, and the Lefty Williams Band.

Sunday’s line-up will be highlighted by Steel String Session and their brand of cosmic blues rockabilly bluegrass.

Dahlonega’s own prized talents will abound this year, with Home Grown Revival, Emerald Rose, and the Pick & Bow Band returning as crowd favorites. Carly Gibson, a singer/songwriter prodigy from Lumpkin County who completed programs at the prestigious GRAMMY Camp in Los Angeles, will be a new local addition.

This year’s bill includes other first-time HemlockFest performers, including Caroline Aiken, often cited as one of the cornerstones of the Decatur folk movement; and The Reese Boyd Project, which is fronted by a 10-year-old prodigy guitarist. Insonnia, Mean Mary, BlueBilly Grit, and 710 South will also make their HemlockFest debuts. More returning HemlockFest performers include Veronika Jackson, Women of Heart, and Barry Bailey. Unifire Theatre will appear once again with their stunning fire arts show.

HemlockFest is an unparalleled musical experience in a peaceful and beautiful setting just outside of Dahlonega. This all-ages, eco-friendly event features three days of live music, primitive camping, educational exhibits, arts and crafts vendors, a kid’s nature village, rustic living demonstrations, great food, and free canoeing. Both day and weekend passes will be available, and admission is free for kids (ages 15 and under with a supervising adult ticket holder).

HemlockFest proceeds aid efforts to minimize the impact of the non-native hemlock woolly adelgid parasite, which is devastating the hemlock trees of North Georgia at an alarming rate. HemlockFest has affected the raising of more than $100,000 to support predator beetle rearing labs at area colleges and universities. This effort to introduce predator beetles, which feed on hemlock woolly adelgids and are a safe and effective biological control, may help to save our native forests and preserve our quality-of-life.

Visit the website at http://www.hemlockfest.org or call the Hemlock Hotline at (706) 867-5157 for more information about HemlockFest, the hemlock crisis, or to volunteer. The Lumpkin Coalition, sponsor of the festival, is a 100% volunteer non-profit 501(c)3 charitable organization formed to facilitate projects that benefit North Georgia, Lumpkin County, its residents and visitors. The Lumpkin Coalition is dedicated to preserving quality of life for all those who share it. To this end, it supports the preservation of a clean and healthy environment, responsible living, and responsible growth.
