Where
101 East North Broad Street, Walhalla, SC 29691 [ Map ]
Description
This children's play is based on the Robert Louis Stevenson novel. The magic of this play comes from the way the entire audience creates the storm at sea, a mosquito-infested jungle and a treasure cave filled with eerie ghosts

Guided Hike and Lake Tour: Rock Creek to Laurel Fork

Where
main boat ramp at Devils Fork State Park, Salem, SC [ Map ]
Description
The Jocassee Gorges is home to four really great and sometimes challenging sections of the FHT. One of the most popular - and challenging - is the hike from Canebrake to Laurel Fork Falls.

For this pleasant day we're skipping the challenging part (aptly called Heartbreak Ridge!) and beginning our hike at Rock Creek. From there to Laurel Fork this 4 mile walk in the woods is moderate and oh-so-beautiful, especially with fall color lingering in the mountains.

JLT will also provide the shuttle to Rock Creek and pick hikers up at the Laurel Fork access, with a 'short tour' of Lake Jocassee on the way home! This is a day you don't want to miss... join us!

Matinee -- A Part Equal

Where
Hazel B. Abbott Theater 580 East Main Street [ Map ]
Description
A new play by Derek Davidson.
Everyone knows who William Shakespeare was, but how many know Judith Quiney? Or Margaret Hughes, or Nancy Hallam, or Edwina Booth Grossman? That Shakespeare wrote some of the greatest female roles in theatrical history is not to be doubted, but what about the untold numbers of women—mother, daughters, countless actors, writers, artists—who were instrumental in the creation of his character? Who helped forge his personality, advance his reputation, secure his place at the pinnacle of human artistic achievement? A Part Equal allows a few of these women to speak on their own behalf, either in imagined scenes, or voicing the actual words of some extraordinary individuals spanning the last four centuries, as have been preserved in letters, diaries, memoirs. Come enjoy the company of these exciting, funny, sexy, remarkable women, without whom, we argue, there would have been no William Shakespeare.

If/Then: A Musical

Where
The Playhouse, Furman University, 3300 Poinsett Hwy, Greenville, SC 29613 [ Map ]
Description
Fuurman University Theatre will present the musical If/Then Nov. 8-11 and Nov. 15-18 at 8 p.m., with matinee performances Nov. 12 and Nov. 19 at 3 p.m. All performances take place in The Playhouse on the Furman University campus.

Directed by Furman Theatre professor Maegan Azar, If/Then is open to the public. Tickets are $20 for adults, $17 for seniors and $12 for students.

From the Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize-winning team that produced Next to Normal, Tom Kitt (music) and Brian Yorkey (book and lyrics) craft an original, romantic story in which "Choice and fate collide for a woman at the crossroads of her life."

Says the Chicago Tribune, "If/Then has some lovely insights into how the phantom pains of missing a life we never had can haunt and shape our choices—and that we can always find something new to live for, if we just remember to look up every once in a while."
