Saturday October 15th, 2011 - 2nd Annual Pittsboro By Gaslight

PITTSBORO BY GASLIGHT is an all day event held in Pittsboro, NC. Take a step through time and see what Pittsboro was like at the turn of the last century. Brought to you by the good folks at the Pittsboro Business Association, local artists, and people like you.

The Second Annual Pittsboro By Gaslight will be held on Saturday October 15th, 2011. There will be numerous (perhaps humorous) activities to experience throughout the day. Dressing up is highly encouraged.


Throughout the day beginning @ 12pm, we will have a variety of musicians busking around the downtown area & stopping at local shoppes for some impromptu indoor entertainment.

12pm: The Festivities begin. Make sure you pick up your 'Pittsboro By Gaslight' program. Wandering Minstrels will be all around the downtown area.

12pm to 7:30pm: Have Egg Cremes, Sundaes, Frappes and other tasty treats at S&T Soda Shoppe.

1pm: LIVE MUSIC @ the Joyful Jewel, Union Protest Songs with Susan Ketchin & the friends.

1pm: "Textbook Tease: Cultivation of Character/ Signatures in Movement" class at Davenport & Winkleperry.
We all have a character we portray when we get on the stage. Whether your stage is the bedroom for one, or in a spotlight in front of hundreds how we project that character with our bodies and face are extremely important. This class is about knowing what you want to reveal to the audience and it ain't all about the skin you show! Talloolah Love cultivates the character you have with this class. Part lecture, part dance class, so bring paper and something to write with, and be prepared to move, dance and sweat! Heels are not necessary, but they certainly are not discouraged.

1pm to 3pm: LIVE MUSIC @ Starrlight Mead with Justin Johnson

1pm to 6pm: LIVE PERFORMANCE & TAROT READINGS outside of Starrlight Mead with Ouida de la Goutierre, North Carolina's own Bearded Lady & Fortune Teller. Live Performances at 2pm, 3:30pm, and 5pm. Tarot Readings throughout the afternoon.
