Tybee City Limits on stage Sat., Dec. 19

In the third installment of our hit music variety show, Tybee City Limits, the Best in Live Local Music, we’ve got the talented singer-songwriter Payne Bridges; Andrew Gill’s Junkyard Angel, playing foot-stompin’ originals and rock-alt tunes you know by heart; and the Isaac Smith Band, an easy listening Southern-rooted band that displays a versatility of styles from Americana to pop.

Payne Bridges didn’t know a single guitar chord when she moved to Savannah about five years ago to attend college. But inspired by local musicians, she taught herself to play and now she’s got her own debut EP of five original songs titlled “GA Flame LA Burn.” As a songwriter, Bridges says she’s inspired by her surroundings and the stories that she reads. This year, it was an F. Scott Fitzgerald biography, and now she has written an imaginative song exploring the bond between Fitzgerald and fellow expatriate Ernest Hemingway.

“Music is something I sort of fell into in the last five years. I found myself being overwhelmed and inspired by different people and situations, and feeling the need to tell those stories through song, she says. “Getting lost in lyrics and melodies is now one of my favorite past times, but performing with friends takes things to a whole new level.

Junkyard Angel is “…a used, abused, honky-tonk-infused” collection of musicians and talent featuring Stewart Marshall on vocals and guitar, Scott Tanner on bass, and Andrew Gill on lead guitar and vocals. .Junkyard Angel is a lot of old school country and rock that is drawing on the likes of Gram Parsons, Johnny Cash, Crazy Horse and the Flying Burrito Brothers with a good bit of Rolling Stones’ “Goat’s Head Soup” era colored outside the lines.

The band’s been around for about 10 years in various incarnations. The band members also have other allegiances: Marshall occasionally gigs around with his brother Jim, and Gill as the Marshall Brothers; Gill also fronts his own Andrew Gill Band and was a founder of the old Americana band Wormsleow. But as Junkyard Angel they are “making raucous, rootsy music with a deep country-rock flavor, with echoes of vintage 1966 Dylan and bits of the Stones, the Burritos, Waylon, Willie and even Asleep at the Wheel tossed into the mix,” says Connect Savannah.

Isaac Smith is hard to pin down as an artist. Steeped in Southern culture, trained in classical music, and raised on the pews of his father’s church, he blend’s all of these elements into his live performances. Expect to hear soulful re-imaginings, roots rock, pop, and you may even catch a hymn from his youth. in 2014, he wrote his first EP titled ‘Magnolia Bloom.” When Isaac is not performing around the low country’s music scene you can catch him on Sunday mornings at Tapestry Church in Savannah, GA.

Smith’s band mates are Ethan Stewart on the electric guitar and vocals and Robert Saunders on drums.

Sat., Dec. 19. Doors open at 7:30. Show starts at 8 pm.

Tickets are $10 general admission; $9 Theater members

Savannah Shakes presents Hamlet at the Post

By Linda Sickler, DoSavannah

What if the Prince of Denmark was a beat poet in 1950s America?

Savannah Shakes explores that question in the upcoming production of “Hamlet,” set for Dec. 12 at Trustees Theater and Dec. 13 at Tybee Post Theater.

“Savannah Shakes is a newly formed company dedicated to bringing Shakespeare to Savannah audiences,” director Chris Soucy says. “We had our first production, ‘Taming of the Shrew,’ over the summer.

 

“It was set in 1940s America,” he says. “Our second production, ‘Hamlet,’ is set in the 1950s.

“When we first struck out to do these productions, we decided to do them in more contemporary settings,” Soucy says. “We are huge fans of allowing Shakespeare to thrive in different time eras so the audience can have a different reaction to the work.”

The post-World War II era worked perfectly for “Shrew.”

“We felt it was a very natural placement of ‘Taming of the Shrew’ in the 1940s post-war era, which gave us Rosie the Riveter/Kate the shrew,” he says. “That made sense.”

“Taming of the Shrew” was a big hit with local audiences.

“We decided to progress decade by decade,” Soucy says. “The 1950s saw the burgeoning of the Beat Generation and the first time television was a representation of society.

“We had all these ’50s TV shows in our heads, like ‘Leave It to Beaver’ and ‘Father Knows Best,’

“They were portrayed as being part of a clean-cut world, but having the Beat Generation then was interesting to us,” he says. “We felt ‘Hamlet’ was a perfect fit.”

The cast consists of Jeremiah Kizer as Hamlet, Sheila Lynne Bolda as Gertrude, Zachary Burke as Claudius, Sam Collura as Laertes, Abigail Eller as Ophelia, Marshall Frey as Polonius and a grave digger, Travis Spangenburg as Horatio, John Dorsey as Osric and the second clown, Danielle Frasier as Voltemand and the captain, Thomas Houston as Cornelius, Doug McIlwain as Player Lucianus, Carl Kimberly as Fortinbras, Elyssa LeMay as Rosencrantz and Francisco, Mike Moore as Guildenstern and Barnardo, Brett Levine as the ghost and the Player King, Justine Beauchamp as Marcellus and the Player Queen, Sarah Maker as the First Ambassador and Christi Mancha as the lord, messenger and Reynaldo,

“Our ‘Hamlet’ is set against the backdrop of ‘Leave It to Beaver’ suburbia,” Soucy says. “He is sort of moody, a brooding poet, a beat person who doesn’t fit into the picture Claudius is trying to represent.

“Now we know that to be a facade,” Soucy says. “We know there is plenty of trouble and pain and work to be done.”

There will be just two performances of “Hamlet.” The first performance will be downtown, and Savannah Shakes will also take the bard to the beach.

With “Shrew,” several performances were held in a smaller space.

“What we’re hoping to create is the idea of exclusivity,” Soucy says. “We’re trying to foster an idea that it is an event, something you don’t want to miss.

“We would love for the annual winter show to be this one moment where if you miss it, you’re out of the loop.

“Theater should be something where you say, ‘I’ve got to go see this,” he says. “It’s a communal experience and we want to have as many people participate at one time as possible.”

It’s a quest he believes is important to Savannah.

“The Trustees has more than 1,000 seats,” Soucy says. “We’re bringing people together to have a shared moment.

“With the announcement that the Tybee Theater had opened, we thought, ‘What a lovely space.’ We wanted to be part of the excitement.

“We went into negotiations so we could do ‘Hamlet’ there,” he says. “It is sort of a split audience world, but we couldn’t pass up the opportunity.”

“The Taming of the Shrew” was as popular with its cast and crew as it was with audiences.

“In our hearts, we loved it so much,” Soucy says. “I feel strongly that if you love something, people will see the love and will appreciate it.

“We were grateful that we were able to share with so many people and have such a good reaction and response. We’re really excited to be on the second production.

“We’re looking forward to many years of bringing Shakespeare to Savannah,” Soucy says. “We’re doing ‘Much Ado About Nothing’ in June at Muse Arts Warehouse.”

Savannah Shakes will do comedies in the spring and summer and tragedies in the winter and fall.

“It will be set in kind of a ‘Mad Men’ era, the advertising world,” Soucy says. “We’re going to tackle the Vietnam era with ‘Henry V’ in the winter of next year.”

Shakespeare’s Hamlet takes stage at Post

In Savannah Shakes’ updated take on Hamlet, set in the 1950s against the birth of the Beat Generation, Prince Hamlet returns home from school to find his father dead and his mother married to his uncle, whom he despises. It isn’t until he witnesses his father’s ghost, who charges that he was murdered by his younger broth
er, Hamlet’s uncle, that Hamlet becomes convinced that something is rotten in the state of Denmark and vows to revenge his father’s untimely death.

Post Theater on Jane Coslick Holiday Tour

Do Savannah
Tybee Island is kicking off the holiday season by opening the doors to seven of its cottages as well as the Tybee Post Theater on Dec. 5.

The Jane Coslick Holiday Cottage Tour is marking its fourth year of showcasing cottages decorated by the well-known interior designer. Besides offering tour-goers an inside look at the homes, the $30 ticket also supports the Humane Society for Greater Savannah and its goal to open a low-cost spay and neuter clinic in January.

Coslick’s designs are fresh, cool and modern — not cluttered or overly furnished — and oh so cozy. Her real strength lies in her use of colors, because she is not afraid to of them. Her attention to detail is nonpareil. From the light fixtures to linen closets, everyday items are placed with the clear purpose of being showcased while also being useful.

The tour will also take you to the historic Tybee Post Theater. Located in the heart of the Fort Screven Historic District, the theater was constructed in 1930 as a movie house for soldiers stationed at the Army base. The theater was closed in the mid-1960s, followed by many years of neglect, then several years of renovation.

The curtain was raised for the first time in 50 years this past September. Now it is a place for Tybee residents and visitors to take in the performing arts and movies, along with serving as a wedding venue.

“Although we are raising funds for the Humane Society, I want to let the public know that the theater is doing its own fundraising where you can purchase a brick or granite star and commemorate that special someone,” Sessions adds.

The stars that adorn the pathways give a Hollywood Walk of Fame feel to the space, which adds another charming touch to this tour.

At times, visitors may forget how much history lies within Tybee Island. Serving as a military facility during the Spanish War, World War I and World War II, all buildings were later declared a surplus and sold to the city of Savannah, which later auctioned them off to the public. Many residents have restored and preserved these structures, making the architecture and landscape of the island one that is eclectic and at times whimsical.

Coslick helps bring that history and whimsy to life, Sessions says. It may be impossible to leave this tour without daydreaming of what it would be like to live in one of these homes.

“Jane possesses so much creativity and sensibility,” she says. “Her cottages are like a mermaid’s dream home.”

Tybee OKs funds to help stock theater

The Tybee Island City Council on Thursday agreed to buy $110,000 worth of equipment for the newly reopened Tybee Post Theater.

Council members awarded the $72,000 contract for audio/visual equipment, lighting and sound-absorbing wall panels to the sole bidder, Savannah-based Michael Gaster & Associates.

The city is buying a $38,000 projector system from Fountain Valley, Calif.-based Moving Image Technologies, also the only bidder for the purchase. Funds will come first out of the city’s general fund, but they’ll ultimately be reimbursed out of special purpose local option sales tax proceeds.

City Attorney Bubba Hughes confirmed Thursday that the use of SPLOST funds to purchase the equipment is allowable, and the city will then be able to lease the property to the theater in exchange for use of the facility throughout the year.

The new equipment was all that remained for the Post to become a full-fledged theater — a place to take in not only live music and performance art but also films.

“We can’t do films in there now, but this (purchase) will be the projector and screen,” said Jim Kluttz, president of the theater’s board of directors. “This is going to make it much easier to do productions. And the acoustics are good now, but they’ll be better after this. It’s a big step for us. I’m really talking about Tybee in general, for everyone who’s going to go and enjoy that theater.

“The City Council understands that the theater is a tremendous asset for our community. They want to help, and this is how they’ve chosen to do it. And it’s fantastic.”

During a presentation to the City Council in August, representatives of the nonprofit Friends of the Tybee Theater asked the city to get involved in the purchase to bring the work to renovate and reopen the theater to a close.

Since the Friends of the Tybee Theater purchased the space in 2006, the group has spent nearly $2 million on renovations and repairs.

The money came from a myriad of sources, including a mortgage, loans and sales tax revenue from the city, donations, grants, memberships and special events. Funds raised through these means have provided for a new roof, windows and doors, new electrical and HVAC systems and other renovations.

Kluttz said this week there are more items to purchase and construct — backstage dressing rooms and restrooms, curtains — but those can be added as more money comes in.

“We’re excited about it, because it’s such a fantastic opportunity for Tybee. It’s a great thing for Tybee,” he said. “It’s just been such a pleasure to go in there, to have events. Because of the lack of equipment, we’ve been limited on what we can do. But just to see the people having fun in there — you feel it. I did not expect this great feeling. I think everybody on our board shares it.”

Since the grand opening in September, the theater has hosted a talent show, comedy, live music and a play, with more events on deck.

Also rapidly approaching is one of the Friends of Tybee Theater’s single largest fundraisers, the Tybee Polar Plunge. The council on Thursday approved the special event permit for the plunge, in which costumed participants charge into the Atlantic Ocean on New Year’s Day.

lynavenueSavannah country band Lyn Avenue fronted by the dynamic Cc Witt is up next. Lyn Avenue officially began in 2010 as a pop-rock band playing the basements of Savannah.

Since then, the band has been enthusiastically embracing their southern roots.

Lyn Avenue was a contender in the GA Music Awards, nominated for “Best Country Band” in 2013 and again in 2014. The band’s latest album titled “The Other Side” produced by Justin Murray, melodically illustrates their country influences with eccentricity and charm.
