  • - Three-time Grammy nominee Dave Eggar and five-time World Champion Martial Artist James Luk invite you to bring the entire family to experience the legendary tale of warrior princess Mulan. The story made famous by Disney comes to life in this electrifying feast for the senses, which features martial arts, Chinese dance, circus acts, and more. In their only Abingdon performance this summer, the Dave Eggar Band provides a soundtrack spanning the genres of classical, Broadway, and rock while Martial arts champions, Junior Olympians as young as eight years old, and Chinese ballet dancers take you on a journey through time. You’ve never seen anything like it!

    A child prodigy, Eggar started playing cello at age three and by age seven was singing and acting on Broadway. At 15, he debuted at Carnegie Hall and was the youngest winner of the Artists International competition. Since entering adulthood, Eggar has earned degrees from Harvard and Juilliard, performed and recorded with numerous artists including Madonna, Jennifer Lopez, Tony Bennett, Taylor Swift, Train, and Paul Simon. He is a three-time Grammy nominee and has composed for films like “War Story” (recently featured at the Sundance Film Festival) and “Beasts of the Southern Wild.”Dave is the recipient of the Sony Records Elevated Standards prize for accomplishments in the field of classical music, and was decorated by TIME magazine, ASCAP, and the National Endowment for the Arts. He has appeared on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Ellen, the Superbowl, and the Today Show. If you’ve heard the cello opening to Coldplay’s hit “Viva La Vida,” you’ve heard renowned cellist and composer Dave Eggar. In fact, if you’ve heard cello on the radio at all, you’ve probably heard Eggar’s work.

    James Luk began traditional Shotokan Karate training at the young age of six. Over the last twenty years of continuous Karate training, Luk has achieved the rank of Yon-Dan (4th Degree Black Belt) and is a five-time World Champion in Karate. In addition to Karate, Luk has been dedicated to the traditional arts of Peking opera, Chinese acrobatics, and Chinese folk dance.

    - Five Southern women who, through hilarious adventures, prove that friendships last forever.

    By Jessie Jones, Nicholas Hope, Jamie Wooten

    Five unforgettable Southern women, whose friendships began many years ago on their college swim team, set aside a long weekend every August to recharge those relationships. Free from husbands, kids, and jobs, they meet at the same beach cottage on North Carolina’s Outer Banks to catch up, laugh and meddle in each other’s lives. These women increasingly rely on one another, through advice and raucous repartee, to get through the challenges (men, sex, marriage, parenting, divorce, aging) that life flings at them, including some hilarious and unexpected twists and turns.
