See This Show!
The Contemporary Youth Arts Company opened the eleventh edition of Scarpelli and Kehde's rock opera "Mary" on Friday at the Capitol Theatre. The play will continue with performances on Saturday and Sunday this weekend and then Thursday - Saturday next weekend. If you have never seen it you should. If you have seen it before, see it again! It's a great show with some very talented young actors. It is a Charleston original and a Christmas tradition for many around town.
This year's show features 16 year-old Liz McCormick for the second consecutive year as Mary. She is an unbelievable talent with a voice that is far better than a 16 year-old ought to have. Her vocal performance alone is worth the price of admission, but there are at least a dozen other talented singing and dancing kids supporting her.
Tickets are 9:50 at the door, 5.50 for students and adults.
