An Encore Performance......
Last time Porkchop Productions performed for us I gave them two thumbs up (Ála Roger Ebert) but after last Thursday’s performance I am giving them a full downtown high five! This time the ladies performed “Sleeping Beauty” and what a performance it was! They had the children and the adults fascinated with their humor and high jinx! We were so happy to be able to have them back.
Stacy Maxwell and Laura Blanchette, the ladies of Porkchop, are from Aiken SC. They travel all over the Southeast with their shows and also are veteran radio, theater and voiceover artists. They are just a pleasure to host and we hope to have them back soon! They have an excellent Christmas show and we are attempting to get the funding to bring them back for the holidays.
We thank our partners at the Lee County Arts Council and The Bishopville Opera House. The 2011 Lee County Summer Reading program is partially funded by a grant from the SC State Library and the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services.
