Leading Ladies Picnic in the Park

October 29, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 6:45 pm


There’s nothing better than great music and great company – in the BEST neighborhood around! Town Theatre will present a second series of concerts by some fantastic performers that have graced not only the Town Theatre stage but are well known throughout the Midlands. And, this year’s twist is that each concert will also feature some of our youth theatre students of past and present.
This week’s concert will be held on Friday, October 29 with some of Town’s leading ladies – Lee Martin and Shannon Willis Scruggs. Lee has wowed audiences in Town’s productions of Hello, Dolly!, Hairspray, The Buddy Holly Story and Newsies. Shannon has grown up on the Town stage having served as a leading lady in Always… Patsy Cline, Jekyll & Hyde, Big Fish, Kiss Me, Kate and Annie Get Your Gun, to name a few. Joining Lee and Shannon will be Caroline Quinn, a former Town youth theatre student who is now studying musical theatre at Samford University. The trio will be accompanied by Michael Simmons.
The concert will begin at 6 PM and will last 30-45 minutes. Tickets are $5 per concert and may be purchased at In the event of rain, the concert will move to Saturday, October 30.

In true picnic fashion, please grab dinner from your favorite Forest Acres’ restaurant to bring to the concert. Please also bring your own seats in the way of tailgate chairs and/or blankets. There is plenty of room at the park to spread out and enjoy the fantastic entertainment.

You can also get your ticket on site – just look for the tent. However, advanced ticketing is preferred as it allows us to communicate with guests in the event of any change. Parking is available at St. Martin’s in-the-Fields Episcopal Church. Pinetree Park is located in the triangle between Coker St., Wofford and Winthop in Forest Acres. Coker runs perpendicular to Trenholm Road near Trenholm Plaza. Town Theatre thanks Forest Acres for their support of this partnership.
