Join us for our next improv comedy show, featuring New Bern’s own Walk-In Bathtub! Our August show is in recognition of Pluto Demotion Day, regarding which most of us still harbor deep resentment. (You’ll always be a planet to me, Pluto!)
On September 5th, 1802, a prominent New Bern lawyer met his political rival, a former State Governor, in a lethal duel on the streets of New Bern. Step back in time to an era where a man’s personal honor was his most cherished quality and any incursion on this prized value could result in fiery and violent retribution. Watch the drama unfold before your eyes in a gripping reenactment of this fateful day.

Join us for an evening of covers and originals performed by Harpist Eryn Fuson, an award-winning musician, songwriter, recording artist, and teacher. After falling in love with the harp at age 15, she released her first album that same year, and later went on to record two more, including her most recent original album “Trail Of White,” on which she sings and plays harp, guitar, piano, cello, hammered dulcimer, and harmonica. Though she can play covers from just about any genre imaginable, her own style is a refreshing fusion of folk and blues, sometimes with jazz and Celtic flavors sprinkled in the mix. She has won multiple awards in the wedding music industry, as well as in Scottish harp & vocal competitions, and is a sought-after touring and studio musician. Ticket sales will begin at Monday, December 9, 2019 at 9:00 a.m.
