Hilton Head ~ Winged Wonders of the Lowcountry at Coastal Discovery Museum

 

The Coastal Discovery Museum will host Lila Arnold of Lowcountry Raptor on February 22 at 3 pm.  Through public education, Lowcountry Raptor fosters a connection between people and birds of prey.  Our goal is to help the human part of the natural community learn to value, understand, and honor the role of wildlife while preserving the natural and cultural heritage of the Lowcountry.  In doing so, we hope to create a future generation of bird lovers.  All the birds of prey featured in the program are non-releasable due to permanent injury and can no longer survive in the wild.  You will see these magnificent birds up close and hear about the role they play in the ecosystem of our Lowcountry.

Cost is $7 per person, for ages 12 and older only, and reservations are required by calling 843-689-6767 ext. 223 or online at www.coastaldiscovery.org

The Museum is located at 70 Honey Horn, with the new temporary entrance on 278 eastbound just past Spanish Wells Road.

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.
