In Andy Griffith’s Shadow

Peter and Ben Holland admire Andy and Opie


As we’re sure all of you know, we lost one of the Greatest American Performing Artists of All Time last week- Andy Griffith.

For the past 7 years we’ve had the honor of performing, directing, and teaching at the Andy Griffith Playhouse in Mount Airy, NC.

Our Living Storybook Series in Mount Airy is supported in part  by the Cindi and Andy Griffith Endowment.

Our Living Storybook Series of Classic Plays for Family Audiences continues this Tuesday night at the Lower Level of the Andy Griffith Museum at 7:00pm. We’ll be performing a faithful adaptation of Mark Twain’s classic novel, Tom Sawyer.

Twain’s Hannibal, Missouri is not far removed from Andy’s Mayberry.

Brought to you by our friends at the Surry Arts Council, the performance of Tom Sawyer is free to the public.  It features the talents of Mason Via, Maya Burgess, and Trevor Britt.

Hope to see you there!

Although we never met Andy Griffith, we do feel a kinship with him.
He celebrated Rural America and the Common Man.
He valued family, friends, music, and great stories.

Andy cast a big shadow.
We are proud that we have worked in that shadow and tried to advance his ideals.

Thank you, Andy!
