Garrison Keillor to Kick Off a New Myrtle Beach Performing Art Series at The Calvin Gilmore Theater
This January, Garrison Keillor will appear at The Calvin Gilmore Theater in An Evening With Garrison Keillor. The renowned writer, actor and radio personality has an extensive and varied body of work. Writer of the popular books Lake Wobegon Days, Leaving Home and countless others, Keillor is probably best known for his award-winning radio series A Prairie Home Companion and the nationally-released movie adaptation, starring Keillor as himself and co-starring Meryl Streep, Lily Tomlin, Woody Harrelson and Tommy Lee Jones.
His solo performance of An Evening With Garrison Keillor includes hilarious anecdotes about growing up in the American Midwest, the people of Lake Wobegon and late-life fatherhood. With a wonderful, dry sense of humor, Keillor captivates audiences using his unique blend of comedy, class, charisma and wisdom.
The Calvin Gilmore Theater in Myrtle Beach is known for its high quality variety shows, TCO, Good Vibrations and The Carolina Opry Christmas Special. Gilmore’s new Performing Arts Series will feature a number of well-known artists of various genres throughout the year.
Gilmore says, “With its burgeoning local population, the area is ready for something new in entertainment—something that brings popular culture and an intellectual edge to the forefront. We are pleased to introduce this new series with Garrison Keillor, a writer and innovator of the highest caliber.” Other artists will encompass a number of genres, including music, comedy, politics and authors.
The full line-up of the new Performing Arts Series is yet to be announced. It will evolve into an 8 or 10 performance series and will be available as a series pass or by the individual performance.
An Evening With Garrison Keillor will be in Myrtle Beach for one night only, January 25, 2015 at 6 pm at The Calvin Gilmore Theater, with a limited half hour book signing after the show. Tickets will go on sale Wednesday, October 15, at 12:00 pm. To buy tickets call 800-843-6779, visit TheCalvinGilmoreTheater.com or visit the box office.
