MAKING IT HAPPEN FOR MANHATTAN
JUNE 25, 2011
Cocktails: 5:30pm on the Roof of 39 Rue de Jean.
Performance: 7:00pm Charleston Ballet Theatre, located at 477 King Street
The performance will be a world premiere play written by PURE’s own co-founder Rodney Lee Rogers. Mr. Roger’s new work is entitled “A Journey to Center.” It is the story of a new priest, in a small Southern town, who is torn as to if he should come forward with the confession of child sexual-abuse in the 1940’s.
This night of folly and great performing is to benefit PURE’s The Made in Manhattan Project, a semester long course that teaches local Lowcountry high school students how to become young playwrights.
Tickets: General seating $200; Premium Seating $250.
Tickets can be purchased online or by phone at 843.723.4444

After a combined 70+ years in the theater THE FOOL’S LEAR represents the first full collaboration between brothers Randy Neale (Playwright/Actor) and Grant Neale (Director/Actor). Told through the eyes of a motley Fool, the magical world of this production emerges from a large moveable trunk, filled with surprises. When the box opens, look out! Here comes the peril and the valor, the tempest and the refuge, the friends and the foes, and the rubber chickens, swords, manacles and ukuleles that make any story worth watching!
