The excitement of Irish dancing and music will fill the air as Bristol Ballet presents “Celtic Flair”. Music from the wildly popular “River Dance” is featured in much of the production, with tempos that vary from upbeat and exciting to soft and lyrical. Choreographed in the style of Irish Step Dance, some movements may be slightly familiar but with a balletic twist. “The music is great, the dancing is exciting. When you put the two together, it’s a sure success in entertainment.” Michele Plescia, artistic director

“Up the Down Stairs Case”

Friday, March 31st  – 7 pm;  Saturday, April 1st – 7pm  and Sunday, April 2nd – 3pm
Presented by:  
 JCHS Players
Tickets:  $7 adults   $5 youth   

“Hi, Teach!” are the first words to greet attractive Sylvia Barrett. There’s a special happiness in walking into the still-empty classroom and for the first time writing her name on the blackboard. Students pour into the classroom—cautious, testing, challenging. Simultaneously, there’s a blizzard of paperwork, warnings, contradictory orders, indecipherable instructions. Frantic, Sylvia begins to fear she doesn’t even understand the language. An experienced teacher translates: “Keep on file in numerical order” means throw in wastebasket. “Let it be a challenge” means you’re stuck with it. “Interpersonal relationships” means a fight between kids. And “It has come to my attention” means you’re in trouble. Soon Sylvia finds herself the most involved person in the school—involved in the start of a romance and in a near war with a discipline-over-everything administrator, but, most of all, involved in the unexpected, sometimes heartbreaking problems of her students.

They are known as a eatured group at the Virginia Highlands Festival in Abingdon, Virginia where their enthusiastic performances of 60’s and 70’s Rock and Roll classics always leave the crowd wanting to hear more, and prompted one patron to say, “Not bad for a bunch of country boys from Damascus.”  This will be their third year at Heritage Hall, the magic they create as the audience allows themselves to drift back to another time, is well-worth the price of a ticket.

After Dr. Flagels’ last performance at Heritage Hall in 2013, the following critique was penned by  HH Board member and season pass holder Leni Smith. Gary Flegal’s performance at our performing arts theater, Heritage Hall exceeded all expectations. He had the audience, adults and children, spellbound for 90 minutes. After the show he took the time to meet the audience, talk with them individually, and sign autographs. He was very professional and a great entertainer. His show included many humorous moments as well as exciting and baffling magic tricks. After seeing Dr. Flegal, we all believe in magic!
