David Myles
May 17 @ 8:00 pm

David MylesLike his trademark suit, David Myles music is timeless. From soulful, contemporary pop crooners to delicate, jazzy folk ditties, from down-home, back porch roots tunes to infectious hip-hop earworms, this Juno Award winner’s only artistic constants are his always growing, shape-shifting songwriting, and his exceptional ability to entertain.

David effortlessly injects any song with his irresistible energy, which has led him to numerous collaborations – with a Latin Grammy winner to a world-renowned opera diva to a Canadian hip hop star. His endearing live charm, coupled with an uplifting sense of humor, has gained David an increasingly large fanbase, and afforded him frequent festival appearances.

Hovering somewhere around a magic spot between James Taylor and Justin Timberlake, David’s diverse set of musical tools has garnered a staggering number of prestigious nominations and awards. He has earned a reputation as a great showman, and his flawless musicianship and unforgettable stories have made him a favorite with fans everywhere.

Mac Powell & The Family Reunion
Mar 16 @ 8:00 pm

Mac Powell Clayton NCMac Powell grew up in a small town in Alabama. His love for music began at an early age as both of his parents would sing and play guitar around the house. Mac soon began to sing in the local country church by day, and listen to his Dad’s record collection by night.

When Mac was a sophomore in high school, he moved to Atlanta, GA, where his passion for music and faith found an outlet in the band THIRD DAY. Over the past 25 years, THIRD DAY has helped transform Christian music and built a devoted fan base while traveling the world many times over, selling 10 million albums, earning 4 Grammy awards, 1 American Music Award, 24 Dove Awards, and by being inducted into the Georgia Music Hall of Fame.

Along the way, Mac has been honored to perform in front of millions of fans around the world and play music with some of the best musicians in the industry. Many of these acquaintances both onstage and in the crowd have turned from friends into true family members, and now it’s time for a good old fashioned Family Reunion!

MAC POWELL and the FAMILY REUNION officially started in early 2018 as the next chapter of Mac’s musical journey. The Family Reunion is a band that has developed over the past several years from the musical “brothers” that have been recording and playing live with Mac in support of his first two independent solo projects.

The Southern roots – American rock collections are foot-stompin’, hand clappin’ tunes – clearly pay tribute to the early musical inspirations from his childhood. The live show is a blend of classic and sing along Gospel, Country, and American Rock songs, combined with some Mac’s favorite THIRD DAY numbers that he has written, and his latest original tunes.

Offering small class sizes and personal instruction, participants will be taught by the production staff of Carolina Youth Theatre’s summer musical in a nurturing environment that will build confidence and help students understand their strengths and weaknesses on stage. Students will benefit most by participating in all three sessions. Material for each week will be drawn from The Wizard of Oz.

Stage Right will open for registration on April 22 as a three-week package.  Should space remain, individual weeks will open for registration on May 1, 2019. Visit carolinayouththeatre.com for more information.
