Who would have thunk that a regional theater could put on a production that could rival what you would see on Broadway, but the production of Mama Mia at the Arts Center on Hilton Head did just that? Great show and very talented performers.

We saw a performance of the musical Sister Act the other evening. It was excellent. That is consistent with other shows we have seen at the Arts Center. The facility is not large, but there isn't a bad seat in the house.
