Panache Theatrical Productions continues the Wilmington "Santaland Diaries" tradition this year with Crumpet #13: Robb Mann. This cynically hilarious narrative by David Sedaris is an elf tale for grown-ups, exposing the behind-the-scenes world of Macy's "Santaland."  

Join us on Friday, December 1 at Noon at WHQR for a casual lunchtime mini-concert themed for the holidays. WHQR's own Bob Workmon, Tenor, joins Pianist John Sullivan for a mix of tunes from Schubert to Kosmo to Mel Torme. We'll have special treats, and feel free to bring your lunch!

It was 1929 when Ella May Wiggins decided she would join the fight to unionize mill workers in North Carolina.  She also decided she would work to integrate the union -- despite the fact she was a mill worker herself who barely survived on her meager wages, despite the fact she was a woman with no formal education, no help from the father of her children, and not even enough food to fill her belly from day to day.
