2013 Fall / Winter Season
This insightful and often moving play about the life and passions of Vincent Van Gogh explores his failed attempt to become a preacher, his doomed efforts at romantic relationships and his discovery of his true calling as a painter. There were three principal facets of Vincent’s adult life: God, Love and Art, and he pursued all three with perhaps an overdeveloped sense of drama, but always with passion. Vincent Van Gogh didn’t just work at things — he attacked them.
The Headless Horseman of Sleepy Hollow
An imaginative adaptation of Washington Irving's famous short-story, The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, complete with the Van Tassel household, the country damsels, the townsfolk’s ghost stories, singing-master Ichabod’s terrible church choir, the quilting frolic, and the climatic chase by the Headless Horseman. Done in the style of 1940's radio dramas with even the sound effects being performed live on stage, our staged radio plays have become every bit as popular as our main stage productions.
The treasured holiday film comes to life before your eyes in the style of the classic 1940's radio dramas. Complete with all the characters you love and love to hate, it's a story of redemption that resonates with all ages, It’s a Wonderful Life has become our American Christmas Carol. Experience the true spirit of the season with this gift for the entire family. A special treat for anyone kicking off their Christmas holiday season in our real-life Bedford Falls, Blowing Rock, NC.
Patterned after the Andy Williams and Bing Crosby TV specials of the 60's and 70's, complete with women in beautiful dresses, men in tuxedo's, a kids chorus, silly comedy skits and lots of singing and dancing, our Christmas in Blowing Rock shows have become one of the most popular traditions in our village. This year's show will be a "greatest hits" version of all our past Chirstmas in Blowing Rock productions.
