Michael and his band, Sweetwater, will perform songs that Elvis made famous.

Tickets: $5 per person
We are pleased to announce this the return of this popular travelling summer theatre tour, led by the award-winning Travelling Players Ensemble from Maryland!
The Traveling Players present Sleeping Beauty, an original adaptation of the classic fairytale, using masks, acrobatics, and physical comedy. When a fairy is left off the guest list of a princess' birthday party, she curses the young princess out of spite. Can the other fairies, the king and queen, and a dashing (he thinks) prince break the curse...or will she sleep forever?
This well-loved tale is staged using the masks, characters, and techniques of Comedia dell'Arte! Combining outrageous physical comedy, improvisation, this Commedia presentation will be a truly unique theatre experience.

CCL plays traditional bluegrass and an occasional Eagles tune.
Billboard-charting artists, and headliners, Cane Mill Road are making their return to Clifton Forge from their hometown, just down the road from Doc Watson in Deep Gap, North Carolina. Honoring the past, the band strikes a balance between preserving the bluegrass mountain sound they were raised on and boldly rocking progressive interpretations of that same sound tackling not only complex original music, but classic covers of the Beatles, Dylan, and more.
You’ll love Cane Mill Road’s high-energy performances, easy going rapport both on and off stage as well as the eclectic mix of originals and standards in the show. Touring internationally in Argentina and stateside from New York to Alabama to Missouri to Pennsylvania to Kentucky to Tennessee to Virginia and the Carolinas, the band is proud to be sponsored by Deering Banjos, GHS Strings, Shubb Capos, Sorensen Mandolin & Guitar Co., Kogut Violins, and MiniFlex Microphones.

Underground Lounge and Café and enjoy a fun, fast evening of bluegrass performed by the next generation of pickers. Seating is limited, grab your's today.
The evening is sponsored, in part, by Racey & Dean Inc.
