Downtown Huntington features two Sunday theater matinees

Mar. 10, 2013 @ 10:44 AM

HUNTINGTON —  At a time when such British fare as “Downton Abbey” continues to captivate audiences, what could be more hip than to take a musical walk though a 1911 British novel?
 The Fifth Avenue Theatre Company takes just such a stroll as they unravel the mysteries in the musical, “The Secret Garden,” a 1991 Broadway musical with music by Carly Simon’s sister Lucy that breathed new life into the perennially popular novel by Frances Hodgson Burnett.

  Fifth Avenue closes out its first weekend run of the show at 2 p.m. Sunday, March 10. The rest of the shows are set for 8 p.m. March 15-16. and at 2 p.m. Sunday, March 17 at the Jean Carlo Stephenson Auditorium at City Hall.

Tickets are $12 for festival seating.  For more information call Maxine Loudermilk at (304) 696-5522 or Eddie Harbert at (304) 544-2831.

Also downtown, Curtains Up Players, puts a new spin on an old classic, “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs” at the Jeslyn Performing Arts Center, 1030 4th Ave., Huntington.

The second weekend run ends with a 2:30 p.m. Sunday matinee.
