This here is a couple o’ mountain stories adapted from some tall tales that have been told to Appalachian children for generations. In the first story, our hero Jack, has decided that he’s had enough of the cold Northwest Wind and decides he’s going to find where the wind starts and plug it so it can’t blow. In the second story, Jack heads out to sell his old milk cow for some much needed food. But instead, he comes across an old mountain man that convinces Jack to trade his cow for a magic bean. Both stories are bound to keep kids and adults alike, engaged and entertained. Length of the two stories is approximately 35 minutes and is performed in the Historic Banner Elk School Courtyard.  Due to limited seating reservations highly recommended. 
The show is an adaptation melding the movie and the 1950’s radio play. It has all the characters you love (and even the one you don’t). The play is staged the way we’ve envisioned it having been performed in the Lux radio studio back in December of 1950, complete with music and the sound effects being performed by the actors live on stage. The show is approximately 1 hour in length and will be performed at a venue to be determined.

Our annual holiday musical variety show patterned after the Andy Williams and Bing Crosby television Christmas specials of the 60's and 70's with lots of singing, dancing, comedy sketches and more.  This will be our eleventh annual production of this type, but even though the format is the same every year, the songs, musical numbers, sketches, and costuming are always fresh and new. .
A vacationing couple decide to quietly celebrate their anniversary with a nice meal at a Greek restaurant in Palm Springs. Unfortunately a needy waiter insinuates his way into their meal in 95 minutes of delicious comedy for the audience to relish…If you’ve never understood the concept of the term hangry, you’ll get it after seeing this show. The show is approximately 95 minutes in length and will be performed at a venue to be determined.
