Playing After Dark presents "Not of the Ordinary"

Join Pocket Productions for an eclectic evening “Not of the Ordinary,” part of their Playing After Dark series, in downtown Columbia on Friday, June 24. Like past Playing After Dark galas, “Not of the Ordinary” will introduce the audience to unique, unsuspecting art forms beginning with the culinary genius of local legend Chef Malcolm Hudson.

A beautiful four-course meal prepared by Chef Hudson will be served as audience members discover the hidden artists harbored in the thick, sticky air of a Carolina summer night. The meal will begin at 6:30 p.m. with refreshments and horederves in the upstairs reception area of 701 Whaley St, where audience members can mingle surrounded by the evocative works of metal sculptor Mike Pope.

Dinner will be served promptly at 7 p.m. by the stage where DayClean, comprised of Marcus Thomas, on acoustic guitar and vocals and Idris Chandler, on cello, will carry audience members to another dimension with their enchanting, soulful melodies. Software engineer David Hamiter will pick the audience up from their DayClean induced trance and take them into new worlds with his one-of-a-kind digital creations.
Come redefine the audience with us.

Tickets are $25 and can be purchased online at www.playingafterdark.net. Tickets include admission, four-course meal and two glasses of wine. The event will be held at 701 Whaley Street, Columbia, SC 29201. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. Guests are invited to mingle in the lobby and enjoy horederves until dinner is served at 7 p.m. This event is open to the public.

The Columbia Marionette Theatre presents: The Little Mermaid

Check out this unique theatre experience on 401 Laurel Street!

"This modern twist on the classic Hans Christian Anderson follows our heroine to the surface of the sea on her quest to find love. Using wide-ranging scales of marionettes and shadow puppets, our 30 foot stage becomes a vast ocean, and the perfect setting for our story. Vibrantly colored marionettes float suspended above the stage, as if gliding beneath the ocean’s surface." - The Columbia Marionette Theatre

Performances every Saturday at 11:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m., and the third Monday of every month at 10:00 a.m. Tickets are $5 each and are available online or at the door.
