‘Ben Speaks’ returns to black box theater
More than six months ago, audiences at “Ben Speaks” raved about the world premiere of Steve Nousen’s humorous, enlightening, and touching one-man show.
So this August, writer, actor and Ben Franklin interpreter Nousen will bring Ben back to Beaufort’s ARTWorks black box theater in a production that is both encore and improvement. The two-act play, which features an opportunity for the audience to interact with Dr. Franklin at every performance, was inspired by Nousen’s copious research and his many years of extremely popular, in-character lectures on Franklin. “Ben Speaks” will be August 26 & 27 at 7:30 p.m., and August 28th at 3 p.m.. Tickets are $15 for adults, $10 for students age 13 and up, $5 for students 12 and under, and $10 each for groups of ten or more, online at www.beaufortcountyarts.com/theater.htm or by calling 843.379.2787. ARTWorks is located at 2127 Boundary Sin Beaufort Town Center (next to OMNI Fitness Center and Bi-Lo).
