(This Dark Road to Mercy) at Tara Ballroom, Litchfield Beach & Golf Resort
When their mother dies unexpectedly, 12-year-old Easter and her 6-year-old sister Ruby are shuffled into the foster care system in Gastonia, N.C., a town not far from the Appalachian mountains.
But just as they settle into their new life, their errant father, Wade, an ex-minor league baseball player whom they haven’t seen in years, suddenly appears and wants to spend more time with them. Unfortunately, Wade has signed away legal rights to his daughters, and the only way he can get Easter and Ruby back is to steal them away in the middle of the night.
March 14 — Terry Kay
(Seventh Mirror) at Ocean One
Like his father and grandfather before him, Fergus Greybar the Fourth travels the countryside in a wagon of carnival mirrors, pulled by two magnificent white horses named Look and See. As the Mirror Man, he is welcomed everywhere by children who find delight in seeing themselves take on strange and funny shapes when looking into the six mirrors that line the inside of his wagon. But there is another mirror, one of great magic – the Seventh Mirror. In it, children see themselves not as they are, but as they wish to be.
