It's a Wonderful Life was such a great production that we went out and bought season tickets for the plays. We also bought tickets for the Return. We've see them before at the Holly and they are so much like the Beatles, it's unreal. Saint Paddy's Eve, we'll be right back at the Holly for an evening with Emerald Rose. Their concerts are great.

The Mountain Music and Medicine Show is another one of our favorites. The setting is Dahlonega from Gold Rush days of the early 1800s to modern times of the early 1950s---? Doc Johnson's traveling Miracle Medicine Show has come to town and set up on the Square in front of Nix's Store, the hub of local commerce and social center of the area. Doc brings musical acts of the time with him as well as his own brand of humor while he exhorts folks to buy his "Wizard Water" elixir for improving their lives. He also showcases local talent on his show. Folks come from all around to hear the music & Doc.
It's great to preserve the Appalachian Heritage of music.

if you enjoy live theater, it has never been a disappointment and for such a small theater is quite charming. A great venue for a concert, not a bad seat in the house. It's under new management, so I hope it continues to prosper as it's a great addition to the entertainment in Dahlonega.

I attended the Holly Theater production of "it's a Wonderful life" this past holiday season and thoroughly enjoyed my experience. The Holly Theater is on the national historic registry and is less than a block off the Dahlonega town square. I was very impressed with the quality of the community production (great set and heartwarming performances from volunteer actors and actresses) In fact, we enjoyed our experience so much that we purchased Holly theater company season tickets for 2013 season (fabulous listing of shows such as Brigadoon, 7 brides for 7 brothers, mousetrap, christmas story and moon over Buffalo.)
The holly also offers concerts and we purchased tickets to attend "the Return Beatles tribute band concert in february. Can't wait to go as I heard them a few years ago and they certainly have the music, mannerisms and look of the original Beatle

We attended the last show of It's a Wonderful Life on the 23rd. The play was excellent and since I booked so far in advance we had front row seats.

The really cool thing about this historic theater is that everyone donates there time. No one get paid!

Well worth taking in a show next time you are in town.
