Pure Magic starring The Wagsters
Jun 29 @ 4:00 pm – 5:30 pm

Pure Magic starring The Wagsters

The groundbreaking producer and director that introduced live entertainment to Myrtle Beach over 30 years ago is now debuting his latest production, Pure Magic, starring The Wagsters. In this entirely new live production, The Wagsters bring magic, amazement, comedy and drama together with captivating card tricks, confounding disappearing acts and even some silly sleight of hand. After a successful preview showing earlier this year, Gilmore is announcing several dates for the 2017 season with more to be added.

Good Clean Family Fun.

With a charm and wit that is truly contagious, this illusionary duo has already won many hearts. Voted “Magicians of the Year” by Myrtle Beach Herald, The Wagsters have been featured as a special act of Gilmore’s Thunder and Light show and The Carolina Opry Christmas Special over the last two seasons and were so well received that Gilmore saw an opportunity for a feature show. Gilmore said “This is the sort of intimate magic show that every family loves—and Myrtle Beach has had a void in this area of entertainment. It’s the best kind of good clean family fun. The Wagsters are young, attractive, and talented—their star will rise quickly. People of all ages should see this appealing and compelling show while they can. It’s–magic!”

In this audience-interactive improv comedy show, we’ll take suggestions from the audience about the funny things that pertain to Myrtle Beach and we’ll use those suggestions to create instant comedy right before your eyes! Similar to the television show “Whose Line Is It Anyway?” but about Myrtle Beach! Imagine a show about all-you-can-eat buffets, beach stores, snow birds gone wild, tourist traps, traffic jams 17 bypass, 501 and 17 business, a town called Aynor, foreign exchange students on bicycles, time share sales people, bike rallies and whatever else YOU suggest!

This show is an open run in Uptown Theater and is appropriate for ages four and up. Since it’s improv, this show is never the same because the audience suggestions are never the same … nor are the performers! You can return again and again and always see a new show!

Museum Matinees: Jail, No Bail
Jul 5 @ 1:00 pm – 1:30 pm

The 2017 Horry County Museum Documentary Film Series continues with Jail, No Bail, part of the Carolina Stories Series produced by SCETV. On January 31, 1961, black students from Friendship Junior College in Rock Hill, SC walked into McCrory’s, sat at the lunch counter, and ordered hamburgers and soft drinks. They were denied service and asked to leave. After refusing to leave, the students were arrested for trespassing and processed. This 30 minute program pays tribute to the 50th anniversary of the ‘Friendship Nine’ sit-in protest that inspired the Jail, No Bail Movement, a strategy which turned the tables on the establishment and reinvigorated the National Civil Rights Movement.

The film is free to the public and will be shown at 1:00 PM, Wednesday, July 5th, at the Horry County Museum, located at 805 Main Street in Conway.

The Horry County Museum Documentary Film Matinees will continue throughout 2017. For a full list of films, visit our website at www.horrycountymuseum.org. For more information, call the Horry County Museum at 843-915-5320 or e-mail [email protected]
