Music, theater, festivals, and tours: There's loads of culture happening now

Image by 20091014-arts.jpg

There's always more cultural events going on in town than we can seem to get to plugging. But right now there's really more cultural events than we can get to plugging.

So, we're striking a compromise: Here's a recent e-mail from the city of events going on in Charleston. These won't show directly in our calendar, but at least the word will be getting out there (and, yes, we've already plugged some directly.)

lonely figure, Henry Harry, lies sleeping under a heap of blankets.
Suddenly, he is awakened by the insistent knocking of an unexpected
visitor-who turns out to be Rosannah DeLuce, a distraught young woman
who has fled all the way from Arizona to escape her impending marriage,
and who bursts into the cabin dressed in full bridal regalia.
Exhausted, she throws herself on Henry's mercy. What happen next? You
will have to come and see it to find out. Starring Eleanor
Hollingsworth and Lee Lewis. Directed by Greg Tavares.

you, the audience, are the judge! It's hilarious, exciting and based
entirely on your audience suggestions. That's not all! At the end of
Improv Smackdown there is an intermission and the second act is a fast
paced long form improv set!

Do You like movie sequels? Are you a fan of your television and all the
really terrible programs on it, yet you can't tear yourself away? Well
we are too! This brand new Sketch Comedy show from the minds of The
Assorted Rogues comedy troupe will make fun of all the mindless
television you love, but here there is no digital converter box or
premium cable subscription required, and with more laughs than you can
shake your old useless analog antenna at! Come see Charleston's best
local sketch comedy! It's NEVER the same show twice!
IMPROV RIOT!October 17 at 8p.m.

until it hurts! Come loaded with suggestions for the quick witted
Theatre 99 ensemble members who will take your suggestions...and rock
out hilarious unscripted scenes! Guaranteed to make you laugh!

sketch comedy team of Foxhole Feng Shui (Jason Groce and David Dabney).

their comedy a little on the meaty side.
CATS HUGGING CATS is a five person improv group that finds the comedy
in the mundane. Scenes start out normally but soon become ticking time
bombs of insane hilarity. A show may start out with a scene about a
parent teacher conference or a board meeting, but by the end chickens

lawsuits. If that is not enough -- everyone in the show is totally hot!

Cat on a Hot Tin Roof
Through October 18, 2009

on a Hot Tin Roof is as steamy with hidden desires and lies as a late
summer night in the deep south. This classic Tennessee Williams' drama
plays against the birthday celebration of Big Daddy Pollitt as everyone

who sees the decaying Southern society through the end of a glass,
views the world with disgust and mendacity.
