Don’t Dress for Dinner
Farce – Marc Camoletti & Robin Hawdon. This stylish comedy turns around two couples trying to arrange a tryst with their lovers in the same house at the same time — unbeknownst to each other — and a hapless cook who becomes a mistress, an actress, a niece and whatever else she needs to be depending on who is inventing the “story” to cover what’s going on! “I can’t think of a better way to forget the recession” -Sunday Times
The Sentimental Journey Orchestra
Back by overwhelming demand this 18-member big band plus two astounding vocalists has been delighting audiences in Atlanta and the Southeast for over 40 years. If you love Count Basie, Glenn Miller and Les Brown, if you love Frank Sinatra or Ella Fitzgerald you need to mark your calendar for this remarkable evening. Last year’s performance sold out and the audience required — not requested — that we bring this exciting show back again!
Songwriters Showcase 21
Local favorite Rob Tiger hosts
- Ben Danaher – who draws inspiration from the writers he looks up to as he writes honest — not trendy — songs with personal roots, and themes that anyone can relate to.
- Alice Peacock – a Nashville-based artist who has released five albums on major and independent labels. She’s recorded a duet with John Mayer, and her songs have appeared in feature films and TV shows.
- Jacob Johnson – The Florence Morning News said, “Johnson sounds like Norman Rockwell paintings and the open road. He is a virtuoso, expressing a working comprehension of dozens of techniques and styles.”
plus other stellar performers for a night of song sharing in an intimate round-robin format. Check back for updates as we add performers throughout the year! This engaging event has become a tradition at the Peacock, and is the best value in the mountains for an evening of quality entertainment.
Thriller – Ira Levin. Sidney Bruhl was, at one time, a successful playwright, but has recently produced a string of flops. When he receives a stunning play entitled “Deathtrap” from one of his writing students, he forms a plan to claim the play as his own. The plot then takes sinister and comedic turns that thrilled audiences on Broadway for four years, and inspired a hit film.
“One of the most successful whodunits of all time” -Chicago Tribune
This group started in 1995 when 4 friends got together to play their favorite Beatles songs just for the fun of it. Twenty plus years later they are still playing together and have created the highest level of authenticity possible. From John Lennon’s on-stage gum chewing, to using exact replicas of the instruments, costumes and gear the Beatles used, they have not left any detail to chance. Tony Perkins of Good Morning America said, “They were great! Their energy and enthusiasm jumps off the stage. It was quite fun to watch them and imagine what it must have been like at an actual Beatles concert!” Get ready to be transported back to the early 60’s and dance!
Lisa Rock in A Carpenter’s Christmas
Lisa Rock recreates Karen Carpenter’s sultry voice in her tribute to one of the greatest pop duo’s of all time. This eight piece band will bring you back to another place and time. The night will include all your favorites like “Merry Christmas Darling”, “Close to You” along with traditional Christmas songs. A Carpenter’s Christmas may very well become a Peacock tradition.
