American powerhouse vocal trio Red Molly is known for its gorgeous harmonies, musicianship, infectious song writing and warm stage presence. Laurie McAlister (bass) Abbie Gardner (Dobro) and Molly Venter (guitar) weave together the threads of American music: from folk roots to bluegrass, from heartbreaking ballads to barn-burning honky tonk, effortlessly blending their voices into their signature three part harmonies. Gracing stages from Denver to Denmark, and Austin to Australia, Red Molly is now appearing at Franklin Park. Their latest CD, “The Red Album”, released in May 2014, was featured in USA Today.

Main Street Theater presents: Once Upon a Mattress

If you thought you knew the story of “The Princess and the Pea”, you may be in for a walloping surprise! Did you know, for instance, that Princess Winnifred actually swam the moat to reach Prince Dauntless the Drab? Or that Lady Larken’s love for Sir Harry provided a rather compelling reason that she reach the bridal alter post haste? Carried on a wave of wonderful songs, by turns hilarious and raucous, romantic and melodic, this rollicking spin on the familliar classic of royal courtship and comeuppance provides for some side-splitting shenanigans. Chances are you’ll never look at fairy tales quite the same way again after this production!
