Moon Over Buffalo Playing at the Holly Theater- 2/21-3/9

20 Feb
Come stay with us and enjoy the Moon Over Buffalo playing at the Historic Holly Theater in Dahlonega.
Directed by Linda Thompson

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 trilogy was written by Jaston Williams, Joe Sears, and Ed Howard.The plays are at once an affectionate comment on small-town, Southern life and attitudes but also a withering satire of same. 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.
