Beaufort ~ 11th Annual Beaufort International Film Festival

 

The Beaufort Film Society is pleased to present the 11th annual Beaufort International Film Festival February 15 – 19, 2017. Our 2016 festival welcomed nearly 12,500 film lovers to Beaufort for 4 fun filled days of movie watching and star gazing all with the beautiful backdrop of the marshes of the Carolina Sea Islands. This year we are adding a day to the festival, making BIFF a 5 day event. Come experience what has been called by many as the “best little film festival in the southeast.”

All events take place at University of South Carolina Beaufort (USCB) Center for the Arts. Visit www.beaufortfilmfestival.com for a complete schedule of events, tickets and much, much more.

Bluffton ~ May River Theater’s Boeing Boeing

It’s the 1960s, and swinging bachelor Bernard couldn’t be happier: a flat in Paris and three gorgeous stewardesses all engaged to him without knowing about each other. But Bernard’s perfect life gets bumpy when his friend Robert comes to stay and a new and speedier Boeing jet throws off all of his careful planning. Soon all three stewardesses are in town simultaneously, timid Robert is forgetting which lies to tell to whom, and catastrophe looms.

Hilton Head ~ Arts Center of Coastal Carolina: Leading Ladies

Set in the 1950s, Leading Ladies focuses on two English Shakespearean actors, Jack and Leo, who find their careers in a serious rut. They are currently performing “Scenes from Shakespeare” on the Moose Lodge circuit in the Amish country of Pennsylvania. When they hear an old lady in York, PA is about to die and leave her fortune to two long lost English nephews, the actors resolve to pass themselves off as her beloved relatives and get the cash. Hilarity ensues when it turns out the relatives are actually nieces and not nephews. Jack and Leo are not above passing themselves off as two English women to cash in on the would-be inheritance. Things get even more complicated when Leo falls madly in love with the old lady’s vivacious niece, Meg, who’s engaged to the local minister. Disastrous decisions make this upended comedy completely hilarious. Written by Ken Ludwig who also penned the wildly entertaining Lend Me a Tenor, Crazy for You, and Moon over Buffalo.

Performances are Tuesday-Saturday at 8 pm; Sundays at 2 pm; no performances on Mondays.
