Just a friendly heads-up, the map info is "way" off, showing a location in Mt Pleasant, Iowa.

I am biased for I know the music director as a house mate and know how much he puts into it. That said I bought the album for my brother as a Christmas gift when it came out in 1969 so I had listened to it many times. I had never seen a staged production of it, now I have. The actors and musicians brought Tommy to life with emotive singing and dancing, I felt the musicians kept the score driving and moving through all facets, folk to hard driving rock. I saw opening night and I'm going to see another. I paid to get in also no comps for being a house mate.

Really enjoyed the lights last year (2012) that was our first time going. I am not much for holidays to be honest, but the lights transcended Christmas and reached out to all of us. Fun times with nursery rhymes, aliens, santa claus, the bridges, elves, gnomes, reindeer, horses, etc etc. We had to take two laps around in the car to take it all in (including snapping lots of pictures) Word of caution, some folks have complained of lack of porta potties/rest rooms, etc, so go with an empty bladder. We plan to go again this year (this is free if you buy a gold pass, which lets you into the park all year anytime for only $65 fro county residents. well worth buying the pass)
Had an awesome time at this event! Thanks Taco Boy! Lots of people, almost everyone in costume made for a really fun night. Tunes going the whole night kept everybody dancing. I'll be back next year.

This event is rain or shine! If it rains, it will be moved to the screened in porch at Founders Hall :)
the Passages Art Show and Sale is a Great show! I hope it becomes a permanent stop to shop for art and gifts. Our community need this art to represent the african americans.
Hi, I am writing about the Confederate Ghost Walk. You were so kind as to post this last year and was hoping that it could be done again this year. Our event is on the 11th and 12th October 2013 and the contact person for tickets is Pat Blitch at 843-571-3371.

When they stop charging people to park is when I'll return to Folly or at least a modern parking facility where you are charged for how much time you actually spend there. The current system is a racket!
Just another Folly business and bar opportunity to strip the tri-state of another dollar and create traffic jams on the causeway. Not much has changed since the shell games and three-card monty.
We went to the early show on Sunday and had a blast. We had many different age groups and they all enjoyed it. The musical adaptation was well done.
The three lead actresses were fantastic. Each played their parts very well. Each brought strong vocals and excelled in the musical numbers. The actress that played Roz (sp?) was also spectacular. Her acting was great and her singing even better!
The live orchestra really added a great deal to the show.
The only knock I have on the show were the appearances by the real Dolly Parton that were filmed. That sort of took me out of the zone after watching a great actress play the part well. They were brief however and easy to dismiss.
Highly recommend seeing this show.
You must have the printed coupon in order to get the deal. go to the Magnolia Plantations website.
@Paul Bowers - I think you need to dig deeper about Jars of Clay. Your piece doesn't represent who they are at all. Also, you have no clue what the song "Fly" is about -- might I suggest you go to YouTube and look up the Eleventh Hour DVD version of Fly. There is a great intro on the video (Just a hint). I also suggest you attend a show and get a fresh perspective of the band. Maybe get in touch with them and actually interview them so you know what they are up to and what their music is about in this season of their lives.
What gave you the impression they are a Christian rock band? Jars of Clay is a band that plays various types of music from folk to pop to rock but they are not a "Christian rock band." The members of the band are people that have faith in God, but that doesn't make them a "Christian band." There are tons of country, R&B, rock, rap, folk, techno, pop artists that are people that claim faith in Jesus Christ and they attend church, but that does NOT make them "Christian Artists". Why label a group as a specific genre when their music doesn't really all fit into that genre or style?
Musicians can write their music to inspire others or to truthfully speak about real-life issues that are affecting people in the world. Be careful about giving a band the label "Christian" when it does not accurately represent the band. Again, I heard from a little birdie that the band will give you a free ticket to their concert. Take them up on the offer. Go listen, and maybe you will understand what Jars of Clay is really about in this season of their musical journey. Last thing, the "Inland" album is a fantastic collection of songs that will take a listener from a place of anxiety where they feel they need to fight each and every battle they face to a place of peace and wonderment as they start on a journey from the mysterious unknown that takes them on an adventure that will lead them home.
It's 2013. Get to know Jars of Clay from this age and not just think of them as a 90s band with Christian roots.
This is something I look forward to throughout the year! Great event at a great venue!
