As I read through our March issue, I jokingly commented to Hunter that this month’s issue should be called the High School Theatre Production Guide. We are big supporters of the arts around here, but I do not remember ever promoting three great musicals for three local high schools all in the same month. For you theatre lovers, March 9-20 is going to be a busy few days.
First up is Hilton Head High School’s production of Bring it On: The Musical from March 9-13 at the HHHS Seahawk Cultural Center (Formerly the VPAC. Same location, new name.) A few days later you are invited to go “under the sea” with Hilton Head Prep’s production of The Little Mermaid at the Main Street Theatre (March 16-20). Finish your drama binge by going back to the Seahawk Cultural Center for Hilton Head Christian Academy’s Guys & Dolls March 17-19. We cover all three productions and highlight their talented casts on pages 109, 129 and 141.
It’s not just high school thespians competing for your leisure time this month – the calendar is bursting with outside events celebrating spring’s arrival. Andrew Carmines and Clayton Rollison have joined culinary forces to bring us Seafood Fest March 3-5 with several different events in which to partake. I’m especially looking forward to the oyster roast and pig picking set for Friday night at Honey Horn. (See page 31 for more details) The Hilton Head Wine and Food Festival returns this month with numerous events, culminating in the Public Tasting at the Harbour Town Yacht Basin on Saturday March 12. But don’t over-imbibe because the very next day it’s time for the “wearin’ o’ the green” at the Hilton Head Island St. Patrick’s Day parade.
IF you have time in between all of that fun stuff I just mentioned, and you actually plan on getting some things done around the house this month, check out our special Home Improvement section starting on page 43. It may inspire you to take on that DIY project you’ve been thinking about. Better yet, hire one of the professionals featured in this issue and head out to a festival while they transform your house. Two birds, one stone.
Whatever floats your boat this month; have a great time doing it. You only get one go-round in this thing called life.
Until next month!
